Cunard announce 2013 World Cruise information
Cunard is delighted to announce the 2013 World & Exotic Discoveries programme: between January and April 2013, the youngest fleet in the world will trace three epic routes to an array of enticing destinations. The 2013 programme offers opportunity to join Cunards elegant ships on an array of different sections of their grand adventures, from 8 to 106 nights
Queen Victoria will follow the curve of the world to the west in 105 nights, weaving around North and Central America, the Panama Canal, Pacific Isles, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, Suez Canal and the Mediterranean. Her programme will feature overnight stays in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Sydney and Dubai.
Queen Mary 2 will set off east, across four continents in 106 nights, through the Mediterranean and Red Sea, Arabia, Asia's southern shore, Australia and looping round New Zealand before returning via southern Africa. Her programme will feature overnight stays in Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Cape Town.
Queen Elizabeth will follow her own extended route to Oceania and home again. In 91 nights she will cross the Atlantic and the Caribbean, transits the Panama Canal, visit Central America, Pacific isles before exploring four calls in New Zealand ahead of her journey home.
Although intriguingly different, these three itineraries have a common thread, each ventures to Australasia and home again thereby offering the tantalizing possibility to glide Down Under aboard one elegant Cunarder, and return home in the company of another.
The Cunard 2013 World Cruises are on sale from 14 July 2011.
