Cunard cancels cruises through to May

Guests offered 125% future cruise credit

Cunard has extended its pause in operations through to May 28 for Queen Mary 2, June 4 for Queen Elizabeth. Queen Victoria’s plans remain unchanged with a scheduled resumption due on May 17, 2021.

Guests who have had their voyage cancelled will automatically receive a 125 per cent Future Cruise Credit on monies paid. The voucher can be used on any new booking made by the end of December 2021.

Cunard president, Simon Palethorpe said: “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.

“We are extremely sorry to be extending our pause in operations and for any disappointment this will cause. We know how much careful consideration goes into planning a holiday and apologise that our guests now have to wait a little bit longer to travel once again with Cunard.

“Guests are able to use their enhanced 125% Future Cruise Credit to book for later in 2021 or for one of our newly announced 2022 voyages. The tremendous response already to our 2022 voyages, put on sale just a few weeks ago, clearly demonstrates our guests are eagerly anticipating travelling again with us.  We’re equally looking forward to the time when we can welcome back our guests.

“We would like to thank our travel agent partners for their ongoing support in the midst of continued challenging circumstances.  Their support and commitment to looking after guests has been unwavering throughout and when there have been opportunities to promote new sailings agents have seized them and the response has been terrific.”
