SOUTHAMPTON, UK – Cunard has announced it will be significantly increasing the number of calls its iconic Queens will make to Barbados. Thirteen new voyages with ports of call to Barbados have been announced, which go on sale at 1pm on March 7, 2024, in addition to the six already on sale for late 2024 to 2026.

Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth will visit the exotic paradise nine times throughout 2025 and 2026, with the launch of a new Caribbean program of sailings from Miami. When the ship sails to Bridgetown in October 2025 as part of her 12-night Eastern Caribbean voyage, it will be the first time she will have called at Barbados since November 2015.

The flagship of the fleet and the world’s only ocean liner, Queen Mary 2, will call six times at the island between November 2024 to December 2026 during her Caribbean sailings from Southampton, UK and New York. Completing the visits, Queen Victoria will call at the island three times in 2025 and 2026 as part of her Caribbean voyages sailing out of Southampton.

With over 300 new voyages, Cunard’s ships – flagship Queen Mary 2, its newest vessel Queen Anne, as well as Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth – will call at 184 unique destinations around the globe, including 70 countries and 108 UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Queen Elizabeth will introduce a new program in the Caribbean, sailing 33 voyages of nine, 12 and 21 night roundtrips from Miami, visiting enchanting island towns of San Juan, Puerto Rico; Montego Bay, Jamaica; Georgetown, Grand Cayman; Roatan, Honduras; as well as Tortola, Antigua, Barbados and St Lucia.

Katie McAlister, President of Cunard, said: “Barbados is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world and we are thrilled to announce that we are significantly increasing the number of times our guests will be able to explore the breath-taking shores of this gorgeous island in the coming years. We are proud pioneers of luxury ocean travel and there are few experiences more luxurious than sailing to the charming port of Bridgetown to sample a unique slice of Caribbean culture.”

Mia Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados, added: “Barbados warmly welcomes the return of Cunard, a truly iconic name in the world of luxury travel. The partnership between Cunard and Barbados reflects a shared commitment to excellence in hospitality and creating unforgettable holiday memories that showcase an authentic Caribbean experience. We look forward to hosting Cunard’s guests and, with our local charm, cuisine, and coastline, showing why a visit to Barbados will always be special.”
