New fares structure for Cunard

Cunard Line has introduced ‘fares from’ for each cabin category in its 2010/11 programme for Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria.

This allows the line to raise rates during the lifetime of the brochure.

Fares shown are per person in sterling, based on double occupancy and subject to availability.

QM2 will run seven sailings from Southampton to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean – more than even before - as well as one-way Canada voyages. Fares start at £499 per person.

Cunard’s flagship will continue its transatlantic programme with a variety of six- and seven- night crossings.

There will be 21 Atlantic crossings (10 of six-night’s duration and 11 of seven-nights) between Southampton and New York.  Fares for six-day crossings start at £999 per person, including the air fare in the opposite direction, with seven-day crossings leading in at £1,099.

The ship will then spend early winter in New York for a series of Caribbean voyages.

Queen Victoria will run 15 cruises from Southampton, with an emphasis on Northern European destinations; eight fly-cruises in the Mediterranean and a new exotics programme in 2011 to the Panama Canal, Hawaii and the Caribbean.

The ship will also operate its first round-Britain cruise with maiden calls in Cobh, Dublin, Liverpool, Belfast and Greenock with prices starting at £1,249.

Queen Victoria will also sail from Venice, Civitavecchia (for Rome) and Barcelona on fly-cruises leading in at £899 per person.

The 2011 Hawaii voyages have fares which start at £1,929.

The Europe, Transatlantics and Americas 2010-2011 programme goes on sale on Friday (April 17).

Cunard president and managing director Carol Marlow said: "Our heritage is highly regarded by our guests, with up to 97% saying they will recommend Cunard to a friend and 98% saying they will return.

"In appreciation of their loyalty, we are pleased to offer a wider range of itineraries in 2010 - a direct result of our expanded fleet of modern luxury vessels."
