Queen Anne Cunard Liverpool

Cunard has added four new dates to its one-day travel agent ship visit programme in Southampton

Between October and December, the luxury line will offer an additional 120 agents the chance to experience either flagship Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, or its newest ship Queen Anne.

Registrations are now open for the visits, which include a guided tour of suites, staterooms and venues, a three-course lunch with wine in the Britannia restaurant and free time to explore the ship.

The news follows February’s announcement that Cunard will have more travel agents experience its fleet first-hand in 2024 than ever before.

Agents can register for a place via the Shine Rewards Club platform, Cunard’s agent loyalty programme.

The first additional event will take place on 15 October on board Queen Anne, with the second being held on board Queen Victoria on 21 October.

The third will take place on Queen Mary 2 on 13 November and the final will see Queen Victoria host agents on 5 December.

The line will also host an exclusive ship visit on 22 September, where 60 Hays Travel agents will board Queen Anne in its homeport of Southampton.

‘Agents central to our success’, says new Cunard sales VP

David Jones, recently appointed vice president of global marketing and UK/EMEA sales at Cunard, said: “Our 2024 ship visit programme shows we are committed to working with the trade even more closely this year.

“We know that the best way to support our agents in selling Cunard is by offering them the opportunity to experience our magnificent Queens first-hand, to elevate their knowledge when discussing Cunard with their clients.”

He added: “Travel agents are central to our success, which is why we are hosting more of our valued agent partners on board this year than ever before.”
