Cunard announces World Cruises for 2016

Cunard has announced its World Cruises for 2016 today ahead of them going on public sale on 10 September 2014.  

Cunard will operate world voyages on all three Queens. Queen Victoria offers a classic passage right around the world via the Panama Canal while flagship Queen Mary 2 will also perform a full circumnavigation, for the first time since 2009, via South America’s Cape Horn. Queen Elizabeth will sail Down Under and back through the Suez Canal, allowing time to explore South Africa, Australia, Japan and the Far East in particular depth.  

All three ships will sail from their homeport of Southampton on Sunday 10 January 2016 and will return together to Southampton on Tuesday 10 May.

Each ship will offer overnight stays at three of the world’s most welll known cities, including Rio, Sydney, Cape Town, Singapore, San Francisco and Dubai. In addition, later sailing times – after 9pm at between eight and 10 ports of call on each of the world voyages – will allow passengers the opportunity to get more of a sense of the rhythm and the evening attractions of these destinations.  

In total, the three ships will sail more than 100,000 nautical miles and their itineraries will offer opportunities for discovery with holidays ranging from eight- night fly-cruise sectors to 121-night world voyages.  

Fares for a full circumnavigation start at just £107 per person per day, with all meals, entertainment and travel included.
