Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria segment voyages offer unmatched value
SOUTHAMPTON, England, Aug. 14 /CNW/ -- Today's unfavorable exchange rate
is making the quest to travel and see the world more challenging than ever but
experienced travelers know that, right now, those same currency fluctuations
are making one of travel's ultimate "trophy trips" more affordable than ever.
Priced in US dollars and immune to exchange rate variations, Cunard's World
Cruises aboard flagship Queen Mary 2 and the new Queen Victoria -- as well as
a host of shorter segment voyages that bear all the hallmarks of a classic
Cunard World Cruise -- combine the tradition, elegance and glamour of the
Golden Age of Ocean Travel with compelling itineraries to some of the world's
most storied and celebrated ports of call.
Available fares make Cunard's legendary World Cruises more sensible than
comparable five-star travel experiences on land since, at sea, meals and
entertainment are included. For travelers without the luxury of time to sail a
full World Cruise, both ships offer shorter segment voyages ranging from 15-30
days with fares starting at $122 per day, per person.
Space is still available on some of the most popular segments including
Queen Mary 2's 28-day Ft. Lauderdale to Los Angeles segment with fares
starting from $122 per day, per person; 15-day Los Angeles to Sydney segment
with fares starting from $160 per day, per person; and 31-day Singapore to New
York segment with fares starting from $171 per day, per person.
Queen Victoria's 17-day New York to Los Angeles segment offers fares from
$200 per day, per person; the 23-day Los Angeles to Sydney segment offers
fares $209 per day, per person; 27-day Sydney to Singapore segment offers
fares from $237 per day, per person; and 32-day Singapore to Southampton
voyage offers fares from $215 per day, per person.
"More than ever, today's luxury travelers seek experiences that bring
both value and meaning to their lives," says Carol Marlow, president of Cunard
Line. "Across all levels of accommodation, a Cunard voyage is a pinnacle
travel experience which continues to include all gourmet meals, entertainment
and enrichment programmes."
Whether guests are onboard for the full World Cruise or a shorter segment
voyage, they'll have the opportunity to experience the Line's award-winning
Cunard Insights Enrichment Programme. Among the speakers scheduled to appear
are oceanographer-meteorologist Joe Bishop, astronaut Walter Cunningham, ocean
liner authority and color commentator William Miller and adventurer Harvey
