Cunard plans to resume international sailings by next year

Published on : Monday, June 21, 2021

Cunard has decided to resume operations from July 19 as Queen Elizabeth welcomes guests on board for a series of UK voyages from Southampton. Beginning October 13, the cruise will be sailing internationally with new voyages including to the Iberian coast and the Canary Islands.  Queen Elizabeth will then leave the UK in mid-February to resume her previously scheduled season in Japan from April 13.

Queen Mary 2 will resume sailing with a transatlantic crossing on November 14th as per her existing schedule and will now sail on a series of voyages around the Caribbean between January and April. There will be embarkation options from Southampton, New York and Hamburg, before she resumes her existing published schedule on April 24 next year.

Queen Victoria will embark on three new voyages departing from Southampton from the April 22, which include Western Europe, the Baltics and the Iberian Coast, before resuming her existing published schedule on May 20. As part of the new plans, Queen Elizabeth’s sailings from the UK to Australia and her homeport season in Australia from October to March next year has been cancelled. The World Voyages on Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria in 2022 has also been called off.  Queen Victoria’s sailings from September up to and including the April 29 next have also been scrapped.

Simon Palethorpe, President, Cunard said in a statement that he will be welcoming guests on board with Queen Elizabeth’s crew on July 19. He mentioned that it will be a momentous day for Cunard as after a long pause the line is finally getting back to doing it loves doing, hosting guests for fantastic holidays.

However, he also mentioned that the path for a return to sailing across international waters is less clear and hence the line is extremely sorry for the huge disappointment cancellations will cause for all guests who have been affected. He shared that there are s too many international ports of call affected by the ongoing complexities of COVID-19, which has sadly led to this decision.
