Cunard extends the pause in operation until 31 July 2020

Munich, 23.04.2020

Dear guests,

Since Cunard originally announced the pause in operations until 15 May 2020, the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation has evolved further still. Many governments around the world have implemented increasingly strict and decisive measures to ensure the safety of their citizens. Expanding travel restrictions, extended closures of ports and limited air travel has continued to impact us and the travel industry as a whole. We anticipate that this will continue, for some time to come.

We are therefore further extending our pause in operations for all sailings on Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria departing up to and including 31 July 2020. For Queen Elizabeth, maintaining a shorter summer season in Alaska would unfortunately not have made these voyages viable, so we are taking the practical decision to cancel her entire Alaska season and all departures up to and including the 8 September 2020.

We’ll continue to monitor government guidelines and travel restrictions around the world, and this may mean there are further changes to the timing of when each of our ships returns to service.  They will only do so when we are sure we can deliver the Cunard holiday you expect and deserve.

All affected guests or their travel agents will be contacted individually by us with all information and details regarding cancellations and rebooking.

Please understand that due to the currently very high workload, delays may occur.

We kindly ask you to note our business hours.

We thank you very much for your support and loyalty

Your team from Cunard
