Cunard Line’s new 2021 itineraries on Queen Elizabeth are now available to book. The liner will sail on 3- to 14-night European voyages before making her way through Asia to Australia to end the season.

Simon Palethorpe (Cunard's President) said they were thrilled to announce such a broad new program for Queen Elizabeth, with departures from Southampton England and (later in 2021) from Barcelona Spain.

Passengers wanting to explore Europe can experience the British coast, visit Norway or Iberia. For the first time since 2014, Cunard's Queen Elizabeth will be sailing a series of Mediterranean fly-cruises departing from Barcelona, and calling at the French Riviera, Italy's west coast, and the islands of Corsica and Majorca.

The ship is scheduled to finish her season with a Suez Canal transit and the Indian Ocean crossing to Singapore prior to sailing to Australia.

As an added incentive, passengers can enjoy a complimentary upgrade on their stateroom or suite booking as well as other special benefits.
