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
