Cunard unveils 2017 world cruise itineraries

Details of Cunard’s 2017 world cruises have been released with the line’s three ships making a number of calls at new ports.

The trio of vessels will visit a total of 80 ports in 42 countries across three itineraries. 

Queen Victoria is sailing a 120-night Pacific loop via South America, Australasia and the Panama Canal that features 32 ports in 17 countries with two maiden calls. 

The vessel is expected to be the largest cruise ship to transit the Amazon river as part of the voyage. 

Queen Elizabeth will run a 120-night western circumnavigation via the Panama Canal, Asia and South Africa covering 39 ports in 25 countries with four maiden calls. 

Refurbished flagship Queen Mary 2 is to sail on a 118-night east-west loop via South Africa, Asia and the Suez Canal calling at 38 ports in 22 countries with five maiden calls.

The cruises can be broken down to provide ‘line voyage’ sections of between seven and 71 nights in duration. 

Full world voyages lead in at £12,899 per person for 118 nights plus on board credit of between $600 and $1,800 per person. 

A 33-night trip from Southampton to Fremantle in Australia starts at £3,749pp plus on board credit of between $175 and $550. 

Cunard marketing director, Angus Struthers, said: “Having invented world cruising in 1922 and having since undertaken more world cruises – carrying more passengers around the world – than any other, Cunard’s world cruise experience is simply unparalleled.

“If you choose to sail the world on a Cunard ship, not only will you visit great ports but enjoy the thrill of warm welcomes and farewells Cunard ships attract at every port.”
