Cunard Line's luxurious Queen Elizabeth cruise ship scheduled for inaugural visit to Victoria
Published May 27, 2019
Thursday marks the arrival of one of the world’s most luxurious cruise ships to ever visit Victoria’s Ogden Point terminal.
The British-American-owned Cunard Line’s Queen Elizabeth, with capacity for over 3,000 passengers and crew, will arrive in the Capital at 7AM en-route from Ketchikan, Alaska. The vessel is scheduled to depart for Vancouver near midnight.
Queen Elizabeth’s arrival in Victoria is part of an inaugural Alaskan cruise ship season for the fabled operator’s fleet of three vessels (Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria), and marks a return by Cunard to the Salish Sea in more than 20 years.
The nearly 300 meter long Queen Elizabeth will return to Ogden Point three more times this season before sailing on to service other routes.
Founded in 1840, Southampton, United Kingdom-based Cunard Line maintains the world’s only trans-Atlantic passenger service between Europe and North America. C
