Cunard in 2020: 110 destinations in 34 different countries and eight maiden calls

The Cunard fleet will clock up more than 169,000 nautical miles, calling at 110 destinations in 34 different countries, in its March to December 2020 programme, unveiled today (13 September).

The new itineraries offer guests a greater choice on the type of voyage, destination and amount of time spent in port, with 14 overnight stays, 19 late evening departures, and an average time in port of 10 and a half hours allowing guests more time to explore at their leisure.

Queen Mary 2 will be offering even more transatlantic experiences in 2020

Cunard continues to be the only cruise line offering regular transatlantic crossings. Summer 2020 sees 19 more crossings added on Queen Mary 2, with six popular transatlantic roundtrip crossings (departing Southampton or New York.)

Guests can also chose a roundtrip voyage, (originating in and returning to New York), to destinations like the Caribbean, New England, Canada or Europe.

In addition, the summer 2020 programme on Queen Mary 2 offers short breaks and cruises to Northern Europe from Southampton with overnight stays in some destinations.

Queen Victoria has seven maiden calls in summer 2020 - Bornholm (Denmark), Riga (Latvia), Ringaskiddy (Ireland), and Nordfjordeid, Leknes, Bodo and Skjolden in Norway.

There are voyages from Southampton to the Mediterranean, Canary Islands, Western and Northern Europe with overnight stays in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Reykjavik and St Petersburg. Plus there are two opportunities to voyage to Norway to see the Northern Lights.

The Queen Elizabethwill make five maiden calls to Jakarta in Indonesia, Kushiro, Ishigaki and Tokyo in Japan and Seward in the USA. There are roundtrip voyages from Tokyo and Grand Voyages covering the North Pacific, East Asia and Australia with overnight stays in Hong Kong and Singapore. Voyage lengths range from two to 18 nights.

Angus Struthers, VP Marketing for Cunard, said: “This programme has been designed to offer our guests more freedom and time to explore some of the world’s most beautiful and iconic destinations at their leisure.

“Whether it’s listening to one of our Insight Speakers, indulging in outstanding cuisine, enjoying world-class entertainment in one of our theatres, or simply reading a book in a quiet corner of the ship, guests will be spoilt for choice when it comes to how they spend their time.”
