The Queen Mary 2 liner had already cancelled the call in Hong Kong but out of fear of the uncertainty of port closures in a variety of Southeast Asia countries, Cunard Line's flagship will also cancel the call in Phuket, Penang, Port Klang, Singapore, Phu My, Nha Trang, and Bintan. Voyage's last call port was Colombo Sri Lanka, with the next on the list - Australia.
A statement by Cunard says that Queen Mary 2 is now sailing directly to Fremantle-Perth, arriving on February 18. The liner will set sail from Fremantle on an Australian itinerary.
Those due to join QM2 in Singapore on February 12-13 or 18-19 have the option to join in Fremantle on February 18-19. Should they be on a shorter cruise from Singapore on February 12-13, their trip will be automatically cancelled at no charge.
