Cunard has published its winter 2019 programme, including a return to Alaska for the first time in more than 20 years.

It will be the first time that any of the current fleet has visited the US state.

Alex White, vice president of sales for Cunard, said: “It’s an exciting time for Cunard, with a 2019 programme that offers more choice, more variety and more destinations for our guests than ever before. Whether you want to fly and cruise, or depart from the UK, we have a blend of iconic, world-class cities and delightful destinations with cruises that cover two to 111 nights. Our itineraries have been designed to offer enriching days in port as well as plenty of time on board for our guests to relax and enjoy the luxury of time, space and all that our ships have to offer.”

The programme includes calls at 49 countries and 109 destinations with 21 maiden calls to destinations such as Boracay (Philippines), Akita (Japan) and Goa (India).

Only the Queen Victoria shall operate a full world cruise in 2019, entitled ‘The world voyage by Cunard’, leaving Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth offering shorter itineraries.
