Today Cunard has announced its expected deployment and phased re-start plan for the remainder of 2021 and into early 2022.

Simon has recorded this update where he shares the details of our new itineraries as well as the cancellations having to be made:

If you’re unable to watch the video – here are the key messages:

  • From 13 October 2021 Queen Elizabeth 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 13 April 2022.
  • Queen Mary 2 will resume sailing with a Transatlantic crossing on 14 November 2021 as per her existing schedule and will now sail on a series of voyages around the Caribbean between January and April 2022, with embarkation options from Southampton, New York and Hamburg, before resuming her existing published schedule on 24 April 2022.
  • Queen Victoria will embark on three new voyages departing from Southampton from the 22 April 2022 which include Western Europe, the Baltics and the Iberian Coast, before resuming her existing published schedule on 20 May 2022.

Due to the ongoing complexities of navigating global travel, Cunard has today announced that they will be cancelling the following voyages:

  • Queen Elizabeth’s sailings from the UK to Australia and her homeport season in Australia from the 18 October 2021 up to and including the 9 March 2022.
  • World Voyages on Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria in 2022 are now cancelled.
  • Queen Victoria’s sailings from the 10 September 2021 up to and including the 29 April 2022 are now cancelled. However, five of Queen Victoria’s sailings will transfer onto identical voyages on her sister ship Queen Elizabeth. These voyages are V126, V128, V129, V130 and V201.

There’s currently no news to share about any changes to P&O Cruises restart plan but we will keep you updated of any developments.

In the meantime our final countdown to cruising again is well and truly upon us – we’ll soon be creating unforgettable holiday happiness for our Guests once more.

If you have a concession booking affected by this extended pause you will automatically receive a refund within the next few weeks via the same method you originally paid with – you don’t need to fill out a refund form.

Colleagues booked on Queen Victoria voyages – V126, V128, V129, V130 and V201 – will now travel on identical voyages on her sister ship, Queen Elizabeth. However there may be instances where we can’t offer a like for like, for example there are no four berths on Queen Elizabeth. In this case you’ll be refunded.
