Cunard will offer “scenic cruising” around the UK for the first time in 2021.
The itineraries onboard Queen Elizabeth, which went on sale today (29 September), consist of three- and four-night voyages starting in Southampton on 26 March. Balcony staterooms lead in from £299pp.
The line’s 2021 programme also returns to Mediterranean fly-cruising before travelling through Asia to Australia and ending the season in Melbourne on 19 December.
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.
Cunard president Simon Palethorpe said: “We are thrilled to announce such a broad new programme for Queen Elizabeth, with sailings from Southampton and, later in 2021, from Barcelona.
“For her first few sailings, we are introducing new, shorter scenic voyages that will sail along some of the UK’s most magnificent coastlines, from the Isles of Scilly, off Cornwall to Scotland’s Inner Hebrides. And, for the first time since 2014, Queen Elizabeth will also be sailing a series of fly-cruises in the Mediterranean, departing from Barcelona.”
