Cunard Line announced a revised itinerary program with a series of new itineraries for MS Queen Elizabeth (February-May 2022) going on sale in November 2021.
All departures are from Southampton (England UK) and include port sin Norway, Western Mediterranean, the Canaries, as well as a Grand Voyage (Transatlantic crossing and Panama Canal transit) ending in Vancouver (BC Canada).
The new itineraries replace the existing published schedule.
The cruise company continues to work closely with authorities in all the destinations visited in order to ensure compliance with local entry and health requirements. Unfortunately, based on the recent advice for cruise passengers, and given the complexities of a lot of the international destinations involved, it won't be able to maintain the existing schedule of Queen Elizabeth and all departures from February 20 through May 17, 2022, inclusive are cancelled.
Cunard President Simon Palethorpe said they hoped their guests would be "inspired to find a little adventure with these new itineraries."
"In a single short programme, they offer a fantastic variety from the opportunity to experience the wondrous Northern Lights, to sun kissed Mediterranean shores, to a transit of the Panama Canal.
"To all guests affected by the cancelled voyages we are sorry for the disappointment this will cause and we hope to welcome many back on board when we return to Japan in 2023.”
Passengers booked on the affected cancelled cruises will be offered a full refund or an FCC (future cruise credit) worth 125% of the standard deposit terms, as well as 100% of any additional money paid.
