Cunard announces return to Mediterranean cruises and overnight European stays
Cunard’s new 2021 itineraries on Queen Elizabeth go on sale today. The iconic ship will chart three to 14 night voyages around Europe before making her way through Asia to Australia to end the season.
Cunard president, Simon Palethorpe, said, “We are thrilled to announce such a broad new program for Queen Elizabeth, with sailings from Southampton and, later in 2021, from Barcelona.
“Guests wanting to explore Europe can experience captivating journeys from a scenic voyage exploring the British coast, to sailings visiting Norway to Iberia.
“And, for the first time since 2014, Queen Elizabeth will also be sailing a series of fly-cruises in the Mediterranean, departing from Barcelona, and featuring calls including the French Riviera, the west coast of Italy and the islands of Majorca and Corsica.
“Queen Elizabeth will finish her season with a transit through the Suez Canal, crossing the Indian Ocean to Singapore, before venturing to Australia.
“Whether guests have sailed with us before, or are taking a cruise for the first time and want a taster of how special a holiday with Cunard can be, we think there’s an ideal itinerary for everyone.”
Palethorpe continued, “As an added incentive, guests can enjoy a complimentary upgrade on their suite or stateroom booking as well as many other special benefits”.
The new program will start in Southampton on April 27th and end on December 19th, 2021 in Melbourne, Australia.
The 2021 itineraries will feature a series of overnight port calls to Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Rotterdam, Singapore and Auckland, with late evening departures from Amsterdam, Barcelona, Rotterdam, Aqaba, Colombo and Fremantle.
Prices for a balcony stateroom start at $499.
