Cunard's luxury new ship, Queen Anne, sailed into her home port of Southampton ahead of her maiden voyage to Lisbon on Friday (May 3).

She is the fourth ship to join the Cunard fleet and the 249th to sail under the Cunard flag.

As she navigated Southampton Water for the very first time, she was accompanied by several small crafts from the local boating community in celebration of her historic arrival.

The luxury cruise line's newest ship had arrived from Italy following an official handover ceremony at the Fincantieri Maghera shipyard in Venice on April 19, with thousands of spectators taking up vantage points along Southampton Water to catch a glimpse of the 113,000-ton, 3,000-guest Queen.

An official blessing and plaque exchange ceremony will take place whilst the ship is alongside at Mayflower Terminal on Friday, May 3.
