Cunard returns to international cruising this winter

Cunard will resume international sailings this winter with more than 40 new voyages announced across its fleet in 2021 and 2022.

The 'Overseas Escapes' will range from short two night to 40 night sailings, visiting more than 49 destinations on board Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth.

Queen Mary 2 will resume transatlantic crossings in November, 2021 before sailing new short breaks in Western Europe followed by three winter sailings to the Caribbean. 

Caribbean voyages depart from Southampton, New York, Fort Lauderdale or Hamburg with overnight calls in Bridgetown and Barbados as well as visiting St. Maarten,  Dominica, St. Lucia and St. Kitts.

Queen Victoria will mark her return to sailing in April 2022 with three new roundtrip itineraries from Southampton, visiting 11 countries with calls to Copenhagen, Helsinki, Tallinn and Gdynia, as well as overnight calls in Amsterdam, Lisbon and St Petersburg.

Following British coastal cruises, Queen Elizabeth will depart on a series of new sailings from Southampton to Western Europe followed by the Iberian Coast and Atlantic Islands.

Overnight port stays include Lisbon and Funchal as well as late departures from Malaga.

"We are delighted to announce these new voyages which will mark the full fleet's return to sailing," said Cunard President Simon Palethorpe.

In late February, Queen Elizabeth heads for Asia, sailing through the Suez Canal to Dubai, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan, where she resumes her scheduled programme in April.
