Cunard has recorded its busiest booking day in the UK for a decade, following the launch of its Summer at Sea programme.
The voyages, which will be on board Queen Elizabeth, will sail between July and October 2021 and comprise of scenic voyages and those that include ports of call around Britain – as well as “wherever the sun shines brightest”. All cruises will be roundtrips from Southampton.
Cunard president Simon Palethorpe said: “Guests are showing that their desire to travel with Cunard is stronger than ever as they seek a slice of luxury and exemplary service.
“This record-breaking day follows a phenomenal response to our Centenary World Voyages, on board Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria in 2023, which went on sale a few weeks ago. In perhaps an indication that guests are upgrading having not travelled for a while, suites on board these voyages pretty well sold-out at the end of the first day of sales, with only one top suite remaining.
“We are delighted by this response from guests and particular thanks to all of our agent partners for their continued work supporting guest bookings. We’re really looking forward to welcoming guests back on board this summer.”
Four night scenic British Isles Voyages are priced from £599 per person for a Balcony Stateroom.
