Cunard Queen Victoria cruise ship to sail past scenic Torr Head en route to Harland & Wolff

The stunning Cunard Queen Victoria cruise ship will sail past the scenic Torr Head en route to Belfast tomorrow ( 26th April 2022 ) between noon and 12.30PM, Causeway Coast Community can reveal.

The huge cruise liner left the Port of Tyne yesterday afternoon after two weeks spent there undergoing maintenance works.

The ship is currently sailing at a speed of 13.8 kn past Stornoway and is scheduled to dock in Belfast at around 4 pm tomorrow with no passengers on board.  

Capable of carrying more than 2,000 passengers as well as 980 crew members, the ship in the coming days will drydock at Harland & Wolff to undergo a series of works.  

With a length of 294m and a beam of 32.3m, it will be in the yard from 2nd – 19th May 2022.  Queen Victoria will be the largest cruise ship ever to have drydocked in a UK shipyard and the only Cunard ship to have ever drydocked in Belfast.
