LONDON - Cunard has released its June 2021 to January 2022 cruise schedule, which will see its three Queens visit 123 destinations across 39 countries.

The 2021 schedule includes a variety of extended port stays, including 174 voyages with late evening departures.

In response to what Cunard says is “surging demand”, Asia remains firmly on the cruise line’s radar in 2021 with Queen Elizabeth based in the Asia-Pacific region throughout the year.

Itineraries include circumnavigations of Japan, a variety of Australian and New Zealand voyages, as well as a maiden call in Seogwipo City, South Korea.

Simon Palethorpe, president, Cunard said, “It is a testament to our long-standing commitment to excellence that from Southampton to Shanghai, Boston to Brisbane, Cunard has become synonymous with luxury in all corners of the world.”
