Cunard to host ‘record-breaking’ number of agents in 2024


Cunard is set to host more travel agents than ever before on board its fleet of soon-to-be four ships in 2024

A new ship visit programme, combined with hosting the trade as part of the annual CLIA Conference and soon-to-launch fam trips, will result in a record-breaking number of agents getting on board.

The luxury cruise line will host nine ship visit events in Greenock, Southampton, and Liverpool, starting from 26 July and running to 5 December. They will be on new ship Queen Anne, which joins the fleet in May, as well as its flagship Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria.

Cunard to offer 420 ship visit places to agents

Agents can register for one of 420 places via the Shine Rewards platform, Cunard’s agent loyalty programme. The full ship visit programme comprises:

  • 26 July, Greenock, Queen Anne
  • 16 August, Southampton Queen Mary 2
  • 5 September, Greenock, Queen Mary 2
  • 6 September, Liverpool, Queen Mary 2
  • 8 September, Southampton, Queen Anne
  • 15 October, Southampton, Queen Anne
  • 21 October, Southampton, Queen Victoria
  • 13 November, Southampton, Queen Mary 2
  • 5 December, Southampton, Queen Victoria

In addition, 185 agents will explore Queen Anne during May’s CLIA Conference in Southampton. Cunard will announce details of its 2024 fam trip programme in the coming weeks.

Last year, a travel agent who had never sailed on a cruise ship before was inspired to take his first holiday-at-sea with Cunard for his next family getaway after experiencing the line’s Queen Elizabeth first hand.
