Queen Victoria going through her sea trial paces Cunard’s Queen Victoria hit a quay in Malta Wednesday morning, causing damage to the stern of line’s newest ship. The incident occurred while the vessel was trying to dock during its maiden call in Malta.

Cunard said that the extent of damage to the stern area was assessed and repairs would take overnight, which would delay the ship’s departure from Malta. The delay meant that the ship’s next port of call at La Goulette, Tunisia, would be cancelled. After Malta the ship’s next call will be Gibraltar on Saturday. Cunard said it would compensate the 1,887 guests onboard for the disruption to their voyage.

Queen Victoria is on a 14-day Mediterranean cruise that left Southampton, England, on May 6, and is expected to return as scheduled to Southampton on May 20.
