Cunard Line is bringing forward the dry-docking of Queen Victoria as a result of problems with one of her Azipods. During the maintenance period in January 2015, the ship will also get her major refit, previously scheduled for December 2015. Blohm & Voss in Hamburg will undertake the work between 4 and 20 January and will add nine single cabins. Engine emissions will be cut with the installation of scrubbers.
