Cunard has announced its return to South America in 2025, marking the first time since 2020 that the line will offer voyages to the continent.
Queen Victoria will set sail from Southampton in January 2025, for a 78-night itinerary.
The voyage will offer guests the opportunity to “explore some of the continent’s most iconic destinations, from the vibrant cities of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro to the awe-inspiring natural wonders of Patagonia and the Chilean fjords”, Cunard said.
It will also call in Callao, Peru and Salvador, in Brazil. Prices start from £13,499pp, based on two sharing a Britannia Balcony stateroom.
Cunard to showcase ‘unique combination’
Cunard director of UK sales Tom Mahoney said: “We look forward to working with our trade partners as we return to South America for the first time in five years.
“Not only will guests have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the continent’s unique combination of history, culture, and natural beauty, but they will also experience 78 nights of our iconic White Star service and unrivalled on-board entertainment programme.
“We are also incredibly excited to work with partners that specialise in tailor-made packages.
“In fact, over two-thirds of guests that we recently surveyed told us their holiday decision making is becoming more experience-led.
“With departures from Port Everglades in Florida, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil and San Antonio in Chile, there are incredible opportunities to match Cunard’s sailings with unforgettable land-based experiences.”
Earlier this year, Cunard confirmed it will welcome up to 160 travel agents on board its fleet this year.
The cruise line has doubled its fam trip programme and will be hosting agents on eight separate voyages, up from the four it ran in 2022.
