The Grand Escape Voyages with Cunard will commence this October—they’ll range from two to 40 nights, include over 40 new 2021 and 2022 voyages, visit 49 destinations, and sail on board flagship Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria. Guests will revel in the Transatlantic Crossing, and then head to the Caribbean, with guests able to embark from either New York, Fort Lauderdale, Hamburg or Southampton. Queen Elizabeth will explore Western Europe, the Atlantic Coast and Asia, while Queen Victoria will sail in Europe and the Baltics.
The Cunard fleet will also spend several overnight port calls in destinations including Amsterdam, Lisbon, Hong Kong, Madeira, Dubai and Barbados, offering more time to explore ashore.
“We are thrilled to announce our new Grand Escape Voyages, as we celebrate Cunard’s full return to sailing,” said Jamie Paiko, v.p. of sales, Cunard North America, in a press release statement. “These new itineraries will not disappoint our dedicated guests who have eagerly been waiting for the opportunity to sail on their favorite ship. They will once again enjoy our distinctive ocean travel experience, hallmarked by new voyage options and our impeccable White Star Service,” Paiko added.
The Grand Escape Voyages on board Queen Mary 2 will call at 15 ports in 14 countries. Embarking on 29 new itineraries, she’ll complement a series of Transatlantic Crossings with brief cruises in Western Europe and will spend time in the Caribbean, sailing roundtrip from New York, Fort Lauderdale, Hamburg or Southampton.
Queen Mary 2’s Caribbean itineraries include overnight calls in Bridgetown, Barbados, time ashore in St. Maarten and Dominica, coupled with the visits to Saint Lucia and St. Kitts.
Queen Elizabeth’s Grand Escape Voyages season will include visits to 41 ports in 21 countries. She will begin in Western Europe before sailing to the Iberian Coast for a series of voyages exploring Spain and the Atlantic Islands. Included in the itineraries are overnight port stays in Lisbon and Madeira as well as late departures from Malaga, offering time to experience these destinations after dark. She’ll then undertake voyages between London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai, including a transit of the Suez Canal and calls to Sri Lanka and Malaysia.
Commencing her Grand Escape Voyages in April 2022, Queen Victoria will mark her official return to sailing with three new itineraries, coupling two Western Europe short breaks with a 16-night exploration of the Baltics. Sailing roundtrip from Southampton, she’ll visit 11 countries, treating guests to time ashore in Copenhagen, Helsinki, Tallinn and Gdynia, together with overnight calls in Amsterdam, Lisbon and St. Petersburg.
