Cunard Line to offer more itineraries thanks to new ship

Date Posted: 17 Mar 2010
British holidaymakers are set to enjoy a wider variety of cruises and destinations in the coming months thanks to the arrival of the Queen Elizabeth luxury cruise liner operated by Cunard Cruises.

The 2,092-passenger vessel, which will be based in Southampton during summer 2011, will join Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 in October, allowing the cruise firm to serve an expanding market.

Cruise lovers will have a chance to choose from 22 different voyages ranging from five to 24 nights, with the ship's maiden voyage round the British Isles, which takes place in September 2011, included.

"We can now cover the world, apart from Alaska," commented Cunard's managing director and president Peter Shanks, who explained that having two ships had forced them to concentrate on a small segment.

"We have fly-cruises to the Med, voyages out of Hawaii and a strong programme to the Caribbean and Panama Canal."

The Passenger Shipping Association recently stated that British cruise market will expand to 1.75 million holidays in 2011.
