Queen Victoria going through her sea trial pacesCunard announced that the Queen Victoria has successfully completed its first sea trials. Sea trials are undertaken to ensure that ships operate safely and efficiently and as such, the performance is tested in order to identify and correct any equipment issues before the vessel enters service. The various trials test the maximum speed achievable and maneuverability to evaluate the ship’s capabilities, putting stress on the major engine components to ensure they work under the most extreme conditions. After the tests the Queen Victoria returned to Fincantieri’s Marghera yard for final outfitting.

Queen Victoria is scheduled to arrive in Southampton for the first time on Friday, December 7, this year, where she will be named by Her Royal Highness Camilla Duchess of Cornwall at a regal ceremony on Monday, December 10, which will also be attended by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.
