Cunard's 2012 World & Exotic Voyages

Cunard’s largest ever winter series of voyages will go on sale on the 15th July featuring two World Voyages and a series of Exotic Discovery Voyages. Longer Winter Voyages and full World Voyages continue to prosper despite tougher economic times and with Cunard Liners ideally suited to longer journeys, the 2012 programme has a number of innovative and appealing choices. Cunard will celebrate the 90th anniversary of their first World Voyage on Laconia in 1922 by sending two of its ocean liners, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth, around the world on very different journeys in 2012. Queen Victoria will offer a full Winter Season of Exotic Voyages taking in Panama Canal, Caribbean and her first ever Hawaii Christmas Voyage.

In terms of value for money, Queen Mary 2 will call at 31 ports in 19 countries across 108 days from £10,699– just £99 per day. Queen Elizabeth will call at 41 ports in 25 countries across 107 nights from £10,999 – just £103 per day.

Peter Shanks, Cunard President and Managing Director, says

“World Voyages deliver outstanding value for money when compared to other holiday experiences. There is a growing desire for adventure and exploration, Cunard’s World Voyages deliver just that – but at the same time provide the best in luxury and sophistication no matter where the ships may be.

“To arrive in ports like Cape Town, Sydney and Hong Kong on a Cunard Liner is an experience that no other cruise line can match – often with many thousands of boats and onlookers giving our guests unique and memorable experiences.

“With the addition of Queen Elizabeth to the Cunard fleet, we are able to offer a wider range of destinations than ever before. As well as their full World Voyages, both Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth will offer a wide range of shorter sectors joining up famous cities around the world. Queen Victoria endorses that choice with shorter and more affordable voyages to destinations like Hawaii and Panama Canal”.
