Cunard Line announces Wave of Savings for 2013 transatlantic crossings and European voyages

N E W S

Up to $1,000 Savings on Airfare for Select European Itineraries,
Up to $1,200 in Savings on Select Cruises to Europe, and Crossings from $999

7 January 2013 – For those looking to get an early start on planning this year’s travel holidays, Cunard Line today announced significant savings on select Transatlantic Crossings aboard Queen Mary 2, and European cruises  on board Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.  In addition, substantial savings on airfare – up to $1000 per couple – are available on select European cruises.

Transatlantic Crossings
The most storied voyage on the seas, Cunard’s Transatlantic Crossing is the only itinerary for which the voyage itself becomes the destination, offering its guests a true escape from the everyday.  For more than 170 years, the Line’s Crossings have appealed to a broad range of sophisticated travellers who share a love of glamour, elegance and tradition.


Fares from $999 per person (including government fees and taxes) are now available for these seven-day 2013-2014 Transatlantic Crossings:

26 April: Westbound, Southampton to New York, $999
3 May: Eastbound, New York to Southampton, $1045
25 May: Westbound, Southampton to New York, $1057
15 December: Westbound, Southampton to New York, $1057
3 January 2014: Eastbound, New York to Southampton, $1045

On board Queen Mary 2, every day offers a wide variety of engaging opportunities: award-winning enrichment through the Cunard Insights programme; well-being in the renowned first Canyon Ranch SpaClub® at sea; and entertainment provided by world-class companies such as the Juilliard Jazz School, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and London’s National Symphony Orchestra.  Every night is like having “a night out on the town”—cocktails with friends, gourmet cuisine in a different restaurant each evening, ballroom dancing in the Queens Room, or stargazing in the only planetarium at sea.

Europe
From the magnificent Winter Palace to the Troll Wall, to the Stigfossen Waterfall and the Brandenburg Gate, Europe is home to some of the world’s most celebrated landmarks and destinations.  On voyages to the region of 12 days or more, such as the popular St. Petersburg & Baltic Explorer aboard Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, guests will receive up to $1,000 in savings on airfare per couple when flights are booked via the Cunard CompleteAir® programme either through a Travel Agent or by calling Cunard directly.

Guests can take advantage of Queen Elizabeth's fly-cruise Mediterranean programme by opting to extend their stay in Athens, Rome or Venice up to two days before or after their voyage calls there, allowing for added discovery and adventure in port at one’s leisure.

Additionally, guests booking a Britannia Club on the Queen Elizabeth 26 May 2013 Norwegian Fjords & North Cape Explorer can save up to $1,200 per stateroom in cruise fare.

Queen Elizabeth’s grand art deco interiors and unique art works, which pay homage to both the original Queen Elizabeth and Great Britain’s Royal Family, continue to fascinate and delight guests who sail aboard the Line’s newest Cunarder.  The ship’s Grand Lobby prominently displays the 18.5 ft. marquetry piece of the original Queen Elizabeth created by David Linley, only nephew of Her Majesty The Queen; and a specially commissioned portrait of The Queen, created by artist Isobel Peachey particularly for the 2010 debut of Queen Elizabeth.

In grand Cunard tradition, Queen Victoria is designed in the spirit of the floating palaces of the past.  Having debuted in December 2007, she captured the world stage in a way few ships ever do – becoming one of the most fĂȘted ships to be introduced in recent years and quickly establishing herself in the Cunard fleet.  Every inch of the 2,000-passenger liner is infused with a sense of luxury and tradition – from the Royal Court Theatre, which includes the first private viewing boxes at sea, to the signature two-storey library with a spiral staircase and nearly 6,000 volumes.  Queen Victoria features double- and triple-height public rooms that evoke the rich and well-recorded history of ocean liner and Victorian era design.

Fares are available on a space-available basis at time of reservation.  Fares for other categories not shown and for other voyages may vary.  Fares are per person, do not include air travel, are voyage only, are based on double occupancy and apply to the first two guests in a stateroom. Offer expires 31 March 2013.
