Cunard has extended its pause in operations due to the ongoing travel constraints in place across the world.

Voyages departing on Queen Mary 2 have been cancelled up to and including May. 28, 2021, while voyages on Queen Elizabeth have been cancelled up to and including Jun. 4, 2021. Departures on Queen Victoria are unaffected and are scheduled to resume May. 17, 2021.

Guests who have had their voyage cancelled will automatically receive a 125 percent Future Cruise Credit, providing an additional 25 percent on any monies paid, to redeem against a future voyage.

The 125 percent Future Cruise Credit can be used on any new booking made by the end of December 2021 and on any voyage available at the time of booking. Voyages are currently available through to early 2023. Guests preferring a refund should complete the form on

“Our extension to the pause in operations is the result of the ongoing restrictions on cruising in the UK and around the world, and recognizes the significant lead times to return to service once those restrictions are lifted,” said Cunard President Simon Palethorpe in a press release statement. “We are extremely sorry for the disappointment we know this will cause. We know how much careful consideration goes into planning a holiday and apologize that our guests now have to wait a little longer to travel once again with Cunard.”

“Guests are able to use their enhanced 125 percent Future Cruise Credit to book for later in 2021 or for one of our newly announced 2022 voyages. The tremendous response already to our 2022 voyages, put on sale just a few weeks ago, clearly demonstrates our guests are eagerly anticipating traveling again with us. We’re equally looking forward to the time when we can welcome back our guests.”
