Cunard Summer 2020 release  

Cunard Summer 2020 release


In summer 2020 the Cunard fleet will travel over 169,000 nautical miles visiting incredible places across Europe and around the World. The most famous Ocean Liners in the world call at 110 destinations in 34 different countries, including 14 overnight stays, 19 late evening departures, and 8 new maiden calls. Each voyage, whether it’s a 2-night short break or a 40 night Grand Voyage aims to ensure you feel inspired, feel special and feel free. 

Cunard’s deployment helps to set the brand apart by offering voyages that are different from those operated by other cruise lines:

Cunard are the only cruise company to offer a regular service of Transatlantic Crossings; the new summer 2020 product launch includes 19 new transatlantic crossings. Cunard consistently operates full-day calls in ports throughout all of their voyages. Over 86% of all Cunard's port calls on voyages in summer 2020 are between the hours of 9am to 5pm or longer, with the average time in port being 10 and a half hours per call.

The destinations that a Cunard voyage visits are one of the main reasons why guests choose to holiday with them. The most iconic destinations all share qualities that fit the Cunard brand values such as history, glamour, romance, and renown. Cunard ensure that all of their voyages feature destinations that consistently receive the highest scores in guest satisfaction. They have also included a number of voyages that are designed to appeal to experienced cruisers, which feature the perfect mix of favourite iconic ports with lesser-known destinations and hidden gems


So.. What's new for Cunard in 2020?
