Cunard cruises have just released their exciting itineraries for Winter 2021. This luxury line will be introducing some incredible new experiences for guests and we’re so excited to get back onboard.
If you’ve never experienced the luxury of Cunard, then welcome to old-world cruising. You feel like you’re a part of history when you’re onboard these ships. There’s something about the decor, the activities and the extremely kind and attentive staff onboard that reminds us of a simpler time. And if you think Cunard is out of your price range, their smaller less-expensive cruises are extremely worth it. The memories you’ll make and the service alone is worth every precious penny.
What’s new with Cunard
We’re so excited to announce that Queen Elizabeth will be returning to Australia for 118 days over the 2020-21 summer, headlining Cunard’s biggest ever Australian season.
The summer season will also feature visits from Queen Mary 2 and sister ship Queen Victoria during their world voyages. The royal trio will be spending a record 49 days in Australian ports between them - all the more reason to book your cabin. Exciting new itineraries, maiden port calls, plus the Oceans of Discovery programme means guests will be absolutely spoilt for choice on their Cunard cruise holiday.
New York Roundtrip (113 nights onboard Queen Mary 2) - highlights along the way include stopovers at Dubai, Melbourne, Hong Kong and Cape Town.
Hamburg to Sydney (50 nights onboard Queen Victoria) - what better way to see places like the Panama Canal, and San Francisco's picturesque harbour than with the Queen Victoria.
World Voyage (112 nights onboard) - a voyage like this should be at the top of every cruisers bucket list. There isn’t a better cruise line to be onboard for that amount of time in our opinion.
Southampton to Cape Town (14 nights onboard) - Cape Town… that’s all we’re saying about this incredible sailing.
Maiden Ports for 2021
In cruising terms, the maiden port is the first time a particular ship visits a certain port. Usually, a small ceremony happens upon arrival with the cruise ship receiving a plaque from the city. These are the ports Cunard will be visiting in 2021.
- New Zealand - Lyttelton, New Plymouth
- Japan - Otaru, Kushiro, Miyakojima
- Taiwan - Hualien
- USA - Seward, Astoria
The Three Queens
Cunard has three queens with a fourth ship being introduced in 2022.
From December 2020 until March 2021 Queen Elizabeth will return to Australia for an 118 days headlining Cunard's biggest Australian season. Queen Elizabeth's four-month season will include more than 60 itinerary options as she sails from her home ports of Melbourne and Sydney. You’ll be treated to 2-night cruises between Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide to longer sailings around Australia and New Zealand. There are overnights in Hobart, Wellington and Auckland and maiden calls to Lyttelton and New Plymouth.
All rooms onboard were recently refurbished in 2018 - and they’re looking incredible (might we add).
In 2021, Queen Victoria starts a complete western circumnavigation of the globe, via the Panama Canal, to Australia and around Africa's Cape of Good Hope. There are 33 ports to visit, and overnights in San Francisco, Honolulu, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Cape Town. It’s the perfect cruise to explore further at each destination.
Queen Mary 2:
In 2021, Queen Mary 2 sets sail on an East-West journey exploring Australia, South Africa, then back to the UK through the Suez Canal (a sea-level waterway in Egypt). Stopping in at 31 different ports, Queen Mary 2 will spend overnights in Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, and Cape Town.
