The opening of sales for Cunard’s Summer at Sea voyages drove its busiest single day for bookings in the UK for a decade.
Cunard’s Summer at Sea voyages on board Queen Elizabeth, sailing between July and October 2021, feature scenic cruises along the UK coastline.
Voyages depart from Southampton to ports of call around Britain or those that simply sail to wherever the sun shines the brightest.
Cunard president Simon Palethorpe said: “Guests are showing that their desire to travel with Cunard is stronger than ever. This record-breaking day follows a phenomenal response to our Centenary World Voyages, on board Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria in 2023, which went on sale a few weeks ago.”
“In perhaps an indication that guests are upgrading having not travelled for a while, suites on board these voyages pretty well sold-out at the end of the first day of sales.”
“We give particular thanks to all of our agent partners for their continued work supporting guest bookings.”
Cunard’s Summer at Sea voyages offer ten British Isles Voyages and three Sun Voyages lasting between three and twelve nights.
British Isles Voyages include scenic sailings along The Jurassic Coast, England’s only natural UNESCO world heritage site, Cornwall including Land’s End and Scotland including the Isle of Arran, Mull of Kintyre and Sound of Mull.
Four voyages make various port calls, including Liverpool, Greenock, Invergordon, Belfast, Newcastle as well as a maiden call for Cunard’s fleet to the Welsh port of Holyhead.
Four-night scenic British Isles Voyages are priced from £599 per person for a Balcony Stateroom, and a ten-night British Isles Voyage starts at £1,299 per person for a Balcony Stateroom.
