Cunard announces new itineraries on Queen Mary 2
Cunard has announced that Queen Mary 2 will now return to sailing from November 28, 2021, with two new voyages – a three night cruise break and a 12 night Canary Islands itinerary, both departing from Southampton.
These voyages replace those previously published, which were a Transatlantic Crossing departing on November 14, followed by a sailing to Caribbean, a return Transatlantic Crossing to Southampton and a five night cruise break departing December 10, 2021.
Cunard president Simon Palethorpe said: “We are pleased to be offering new opportunities to sail on our flagship later this year.
“Having been out of service for over 18 months we would like the initial few voyages for Queen Mary 2 to be closer to home. Therefore, we have introduced two new voyages that will depart from Southampton to replace the original schedule.
“We are so sorry though for the disappointment caused to those guests affected by the changes to these voyages and do hope we will see them on board later in the year.”
Additionally, Queen Mary 2’s first call back in to New York will be two days earlier than originally scheduled. This is to allow for all ship inspections in compliance with the latest regulatory requirements. She will now depart on December 13 prior to arrival in New York on December 20, before sailing to the Caribbean as scheduled on 22 December, 2021.
All guests whose cruises 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, 100% refund is available through the form on www.cunard.com
The new itineraries mentioned above will go on sale in the coming weeks.
