Cunard Commits to Abu Dhabi with two Cunard Queens due for 2014/15 season return

The Queen Elizabeth, the newest ocean liner of luxury cruise line Cunard, made her maiden Abu Dhabi call at the UAE capital’s Zayed Port cruise terminal yesterday.

The 2013/14 cruise season is on course to be Abu Dhabi’s busiest since cruise ships first arrived in the UAE capital, with Zayed Port due to welcome almost 190,000 passengers from 75 calls generated by 14 ships in all.

Cunard’s return to Abu Dhabi signifies growing passenger interest in the diversity of the emirate’s attractions and experiences according to its shore excursion agent for UAE.
Passengers aboard the 294m, 190,000 tonne liner, with an art deco interior designed to evoke the era of Cunard’s original Queen Elizabeth of the 1930s, will enjoy a variety of regal themed touches that play homage to Cunard’s royal reputation. The liner boasts a selection of 12 restaurants and bars, an 832-seat Royal Court theatre, a library, a spa and fitness centre, an outdoor pool, and 1,046 staterooms and suites, including Queens Grill suites complete with personal butler service.
