Cunard Queen Elizabeth Master Chosen

Cunard Line has chosen Captain Chris Wells to be the first master of Queen Elizabeth, which will be delivered in the fall of 2010.

Wells previously served aboard QE2 where he rose to the position of staff captain. From there he was chosen to be the first staff captain of Queen Mary 2 and worked on that ship's newbuild team, bringing it out of the yard. Last year, he was appointed to be master of QM2, the position which he currently holds.

Captain Wells will shortly be reassigned to Monfalcone (Italy) where he will be involved in the building of the new ship at the Fincantieri yard.
