2021 World and Exotic Voyages Preview

Recommended Posts

The thread from earlier today asking about Cunard's 2021 itineraries got me looking to see if I could find anything that has been pre-released so far about the 2021 itineraries.

John, 

The voyages are available on the Cunard site.

I captured them on Feb 2.

 

I didn't want to search and drill down for each voyage.  I started entering the URL directly. 

For example for M106, I entered 

https://www.cunard.com/en-us/find-a-cruise/M106/M106

 

One after the next, whole numbered voyages

Then screen scraped the results.

 

Q023 -Q027 are Q023N-Q027N

 

Is there a way to attach text files?

Excellent detective work, Vince. I was aware of the trick with manipulating the URL as a workaround to search for a specific voyage number, since the new website does not appear to support searching by voyage number any more like the old site did. But it never occurred to me that Cunard would have posted voyages that can't be found yet by a conventional date search but can be found by voyage number. Good job.

Thank you bluemarble and Vince.  I'm also amazed that those text files include port times I they don't normally disclose.  Now I can fill in the itinerary for my 2020 World Cruise.

 

I'm not sure Cunard can win on itineraries.  If they do the major ports people complain about repetition.  If they find new places people will say "why would we ever want to go THERE".

Cunard is now providing port timings within the itineraries on their new website. That's one of the things we can point to as a genuine improvement on the new site. Here's a portion of the itinerary page for the 2021 QM2 World Voyage as seen on the new website showing the port timings. The embarkation and disembarkation ports all seem to incorrectly show "Over Night" on the new itineraries though. That is not an improvement.

Glad to help. Here are direct links to the full World Voyage detail pages on the Cunard website which I posted in another thread yesterday, but it would probably be useful to have them posted here as well. This uses Dranuc2016's discovery that the 2021 voyages can be found on Cunard's new website if you happen to know (or figure out) the voyage numbers. That's even though none of the 2021 voyages have been formally announced by Cunard yet.

Cunard's formal announcement of the new 2021 itineraries was made a couple days ago on March 4. Those voyages can be found now, including pricing, using the conventional "Find a voyage" search function on the Cunard website.
