Cunard has unveiled its January – May 2019 program called “Oceans of Discovery,” which will include a voyage to Alaska. From January to May 2019, Cunard’s flagship Queen Mary 2 and its sibling ships Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria will call at 49 different countries and 109 destinations. Of these, 21 are new ports of call including Boracay, Philippines; Akita, Japan; and Goa, India.
In 2019, Cunard will also operate a full world circumnavigation on Queen Victoria. Since Cunard pioneered the concept of world cruising in 1922, it has undertaken more world voyages than any other passenger line, the cruise line said.
Queen Victoria’s sister ship, Queen Elizabeth is set to embark on a series of round trip voyages in 2019. In between these home-port deployments will be Grand Voyages that emulate the essence of adventure. Included in Queen Elizabeth’s deployment is a maiden 27-night sailing from Yokohama to Vancouver.
