BREAKING NEWS – Queen Elizabeth’s maiden voyage sells out & 2010 Itineraries revealed

April 2, 2009

We Are Cunard

Posted in: Company News

I have just found out that it took just 29 minutes for Queen Elizabeth’s Maiden Voyage, to the Canary Islands on the 12th October 2010, to sell out. This is a new record in Cunard’s 170-year history, beating the record set by last year’s final voyage of QE2, which sold out in 36 minutes when it went on sale in June 2007. I also hear that the other five voyages in her maiden season are also already over half sold which is a remarkable testament to the popularity of the new Queen.


Also I understand that there is some exciting news about the spring and summer 2010 itineraries for Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria which will open for booking on April 17. Although no detailed itineraries have been published, some of the highlights I picked out were a round Britain voyage for Queen Victoria as well as some special Hawaiian voyages in January 2011. Meanwhile Queen Mary two will continue her successful Transatlantic Crossings as well as Europe, Norway, Canada & New England as well as the Caribbean.


Anyway as soon as I have any more news on that or anything else, I’ll let you know. Meanwhile I’ll be back on Monday with another Blog as well as Thursday with my regular weekly Blog. Cheers – Alastair

    The itineries for summer 2010 sound interesting and i am just woundering if a brochour will be available anytime soon? Thanks!

  2. David Cunard says:

    I wonder if that 29 minutes was British time? If so, how would anyone on the West Coast of the USA (where Cunard is headquartered) have been able to book? Just curious, since the timing and itinerary were not of interest to me (been there, done that!) but it would be interesting to know how the dilemma was resolved.

  3. Peter Thomas says:

    Alastair, So disappointed with the new 2010 itineraries ,not one 14day cruise to the Med or anywhere warm in the summer and Queen Victoria has gone back to fly cruises.
    We have loved cruising with Cunard but will have to look somewhere else for 2010.
