Cunard unveils international cruise programme

As Cunard resumes operations next month with a series of UK voyages from Southampton, the line has unveiled new itineraries across the fleet.

Beginning 13 October 2021, it will sail internationally with new voyages to the Iberian coast and the Canary Islands. 

Queen Elizabeth will leave the UK in mid-February to resume her previously scheduled season in Japan from 13 April, 2022.

Queen Mary 2 will resume sailing with a Transatlantic crossing on 14 November, 2021 in keeping with her existing schedule and will now sail on a series of voyages around the Caribbean between January and April, 2022, with embarkation options from Southampton, New York and Hamburg.

Queen Victoria will embark on three new voyages departing from Southampton from 22 April, 2022 which includes Western Europe, the Baltics and the Iberian Coast before resuming her existing published schedule on 20 May, 2022.

Cunard president Simon Palethorpe, said: "On 19 July Queen Elizabeth's crew and I will be welcoming guests on board as at long last we start our return to sailing.  This will be a momentous day for Cunard as after a long pause we finally get back to doing what we love doing."

"We're really excited about the new itineraries such as Queen Mary 2's sailings around the Caribbean, and hopefully these will appeal to those looking for some much needed winter sun and those looking for adventure later this year and in 2022."

Due to the ongoing uncertainty over global travel, Cunard has announced that it will be cancelling Queen Elizabeth's sailings from the UK to Australia and her homeport season in Australia from the 18 October, 2021 up to and including 9 March, 2022. 

World Voyages on Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria in 2022 are now also cancelled, as are Queen Victoria's sailings from 10 September, 2021 up to and including 29 April, 2022. 

All guests with cruises that have been cancelled will automatically receive a Future Cruise Credit worth 125% of the standard deposit terms, and 100% of any additional monies paid.

Alternatively, a 100% refund is available through the form on www.cunard.com

All the new itineraries just announced will go on sale in July.
