Cunard recently unveiled the Queen Elizabeth's schedule for 2021.

Cunard president, Simon Palethorpe, said: “We are thrilled to announce such a broad new program for Queen Elizabeth, with sailings from Southampton and, later in 2021, from Barcelona.

 “Guests wanting to explore Europe can experience captivating journeys from a scenic voyage exploring the British coast, to sailings visiting Norway to Iberia," he said. 

The 2021 itineraries will include a series of overnight port calls to Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Rotterdam, Singapore and Auckland , with late-evening departures from Amsterdam, Barcelona, Rotterdam, Aqaba, Colombo and Fremantle. 

And, first time since 2014, Queen Elizabeth will also be sailing a series of fly-cruises in the Mediterranean, departing from Barcelona, and featuring calls from the French Riviera, to the west coast of Italy to the islands of Majorca and Corsica.

Queen Elizabeth will finish her season with a transit through the Suez canal, crossing the Indian Ocean to Singapore, before venturing to Australia.
