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.ADNFCR-657-ID-19344542-ADNFCR

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
