The ultimate touches are being made to Cunard ship Queen Elizabeth because the cruise line prepares to return to crusing.
The UK-based line has been out of the water for 17-months following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Crew members are making ready to depart on Friday.
The ship will first sail a sequence of UK voyages earlier than returning to worldwide sailings in October.
“I feel I communicate for your complete group at Cunard once I say how delighted we’re to be returning to what we do greatest as we get able to welcome our friends again on board,” mentioned Cunard president, Simon Palethorpe.
“We all know how a lot our friends have been wanting ahead to our first voyage and we hope that they absolutely immerse themselves within the Cunard on board expertise, as they take pleasure in a number of the most beautiful coastlines Britain has to supply.”
Following a sequence of different UK voyages, worldwide sailings on board Queen Elizabeth will start in October with a cruise from Southampton to Amsterdam adopted by a 14-night voyage to the Canary Islands and Madeira in November.
