Cunard’s Queen Victoria today become the largest cruise ship to sail the Amazon, sailing between the dark Rio Negro and the Pale Amazon before she reached Manaus, Brazil.
Manaus was the sixth port of call on Queen Victoria’s 120 night World Voyage, where she will traverse 41,000 nautical miles.
It was an exciting new chapter in Cunard’s illustrious history and Josh Leibowitz, Senior Vice President, Cunard North America was keen to point out this marvellous event for the company:
“Queen Victoria’s maiden call in Manaus represents the type of innovation and uniqueness that guests have come to expect from Cunard. Since it pioneered World Cruising in 1922, Cunard has continued to offer guests itineraries that visit exciting destinations and that offer unique ‘firsts’ that can only be experienced on Cunard.”
Queen Victoria will then anchor at her next port of call on Friday 27th January in Santarem, Brazil.
