Cunard Line’s flagship Queen Mary 2 made two calls in Singapore this March during a short Southeast Asia roundtrip voyage, which is part of her 134-day world cruise that started on 3 January 2018 from New York, US.

The 2,700-passenger ship arrived in Singapore on 23 March and set off on a seven-day to Hong Kong via Bangkok, Thailand and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. She then sailed a five-day return cruise from Hong Kong to Singapore.

“Luxury cruising is becoming increasingly popular and one of the top vacation options among Southeast Asians who have discovered the glamour and exhilaration of luxury cruising,” said Farriek Tawfik, director for Southeast Asia at both Cunard and Princess Cruises. “Luxury voyages on Cunard’s ships, which also include Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, are in high demand particularly with seasoned travellers who are inspired by the sophistication, elegance and timeless charm of these ships.”

After departing Singapore for the final time, Queen Mary 2 set sail for her UK homeport of Southampton, via the Straits of Malacca, the Indian Ocean, the Middle East, the Suez Canal and Europe. Following her call in Southampton on 10 May, the ship will embark on a transatlantic crossing to conclude her world cruise in New York, US on 17 May.

Queen Mary 2’s 2019 and 2020 world voyages will also include overnight calls in Singapore.
