Cunard extends cancellations until November



 





 


Cunard has cancelled all cruises until November due to the continued impact of Covid-19.

Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria sailings will resume from November 2 while Queen Elizabeth departures won't resume until after November 23.

Cunard president Simon Palethorpe said: "With many differing restrictions across countries, people's ability to move freely and safely across borders remains seemingly someway in the distance. For Cunard, where we celebrate having a truly international mix of guests and sail all over the world, this becomes particularly impactful.

"We also need to better understand the implications Covid-19 will have on board our ships. We are therefore working, at the highest level possible, with government bodies, including the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - the CDC - and Public Health England, as well as the industry collective body - CLIA - and other expert medical professionals to review every aspect of a holiday with us."

He added: "Whilst we have always taken pride in having the highest levels of health and safety we are looking at enhanced protocols across all aspects of ship life and experiences on shore. We will only return to service when we have a comprehensive restart protocol with the stamps of approval and accreditation from the most trusted and informed sources."

Guests who are booked on cancelled voyages will automatically be given a 125% Future Cruise Credit. This can be redeemed against any new booking made by the end of December 2021 on any voyage that's on sale at the time of booking.

Clients who would prefer a cash refund need to fill out a form, available on Cunard's website.

In a video message to travel agents, Palethorpe thanked agents for their support.
