Cunard has announced the world class team of designers recruited to create the interiors for its eagerly anticipated new ship. Award winning designers Simon Rawlings of David Collins Studio; Richmond International’s Terry McGillicuddy (who designed P&O Cruises Britannia); and Parisian designer Sybille de Margerie are already working with the ship’s globally renowned Creative Director, Adam D Tihany who created the superb interiors of the two recent ships for Seabourn. Cunard’s fourth ship, which is set to join the fleet in 2022, is yet to be named but will be built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy.


“The calibre of talent we have brought together for this project will bring to life our vision of creating a truly world class ship. Working alongside the legendary Adam D Tihany, the team is working hard to ensure that every aspect of our new ship is exciting and forward-looking, yet unmistakably Cunard,” says Simon Palethorpe, President of Cunard.


While design details of the new ship are still under wraps, Cunard has confirmed some of the key spaces that the design teams will be bringing to life. Luxury interior design team, David Collins Studio, whose projects have included Kerridge’s Bar and Grill at the Corinthia London, The Apartment at The Connaught and Bob Bob Ricard, will be responsible for a show stopping atrium, the Grand Lobby, the Queen’s Grill Suites and the main dining room.


Richmond International, which counts The Langham London and the award winning Four Seasons Budapest among its clients, will be responsible for the Theatre, new and exciting entertainment spaces and the outside deck space.


Renowned French interior studio, Sybille de Margerie Paris, whose projects have included the Mandarin Oriental Paris and Cheval Blanc in Courchevel, will be responsible for the retail spaces, the spa and the Queen’s Room.  


The new ship will be the 249th vessel to sail under the Cunard flag and will bring the luxury line’s fleet up to four, for the first time since the 1980s. She joins Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth and the flagship Queen Mary 2.
