Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 skips New York call
Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 ship will drop a planned port call at New York during its New Year sailing.
Instead it will stay in Barbados until early January to bring on more crew members.
The ship is on a 28-night voyage which left Southampton on 13 December and is due back in the UK on 10 January 2022.
Cunard will arrange flights out of Barbados for guests who were due to disembark in New York.
"As a precautionary measure Queen Mary 2 will take on additional manning in essential roles in Barbados prior to the sail back to the UK. Given the current international travel situation the ship will remain in Barbados until January 2," the cruise line said.
"It means that unfortunately the ship will be unable to call in New York."
