The UK-based Cunard Line canceled the April 23rd Transatlantic voyage on RMS Queen Mary 2 (Sunday morning departure) after the liner arrived in Southampton with a technical issue. The sailing was a 7-day North Atlantic crossing from Southampton England to NYC New York USA.

The company said that repairs would take longer than anticipated and the vessel was unable to sail until repairs were completed.

Cunard is giving everyone who was booked on the affected voyage a full refund plus a 20% FCC (future cruise credit). The FCC will be registered to the passenger’s Cunard World Club number. All shore excursions purchased will also be refunded.

Some vacationers were on their way to the cruise port when they received an email from Cunard saying that their voyage had been canceled.

QM2 was also scheduled to sail back to Southampton from NYC on April 30th (returning back to Southampton/7-day and Hamburg Germany/9-day), and this crossing is also canceled.
