Cunard’s Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth sailings postponed

Cunard continues to take 2022 bookings, which opened last month
Cruises on board Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 up to and including May 28, 2021 and on board Queen Elizabeth up to and including June 4, 2021 are cancelled.

Cunard president, Simon Palethorpe said he was ‘extremely sorry for the disappointment,’ adding ‘Our extension to the pause in operations is the result of the ongoing restrictions on cruising in the UK and around the world, and recognises the significant lead times to return to service, once those restrictions are lifted.’

Departures on Queen Victoria remain unaffected and are scheduled to resume May 17, 2021.

Affected Passengers have the choice of a refund or 125% Future Cruise Credit, providing an additional 25% on any monies paid to redeem against a future voyage when booked by the end of December 2021. 

Cruises are currently available to book through 2022/23

Cunard cancelled its world cruise earlier this year.
