Eager cruise lovers have expressed interest in Cunard Cruises' new vessel by securing a place on the first six voyages, it has been reported.

Some 75 per cent of places in the early cruises on Cunard's new Queen Elizabeth ship have already been booked, according to the company's incoming president and managing director Peter Shanks.

Mr Shanks is quoted by Travel Weekly as saying that the increased interest from Cunard lovers as well as new customers has resulted in record bookings for its voyages.

He said: "The Cunard brand is very resilient, which gives us a tremendous position in the market, especially when you add in the heritage."

He went on to state that "world cruisers know what they want" and prefer to secure their booking as early as possible, adding that "sales have also benefited from interest in Queen Elizabeth".

Tickets for Queen Elizabeth's maiden voyage sold out in just 29 minutes and 14 seconds when the books were opened in April.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
