Cunard to Make 13 Visits to Bardados in 2025-26

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

Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth will visit Barbados nine times throughout 2025 and 2026, with the launch of a new Caribbean program of sailings from Miami. The ship will sail to Bridgetown in October 2025 as part of its 12-night "Eastern Caribbean" voyage, marking the first time it 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 its Caribbean sailings from Southampton and New York. Completing the visits, Queen Victoria will call at the island three times in 2025 and 2026 as part of its Caribbean voyages sailing out of Southampton.

The line will also offer new itineraries from September 2025 to January 2027. 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 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 round-trips from Miami, visiting the island towns of San Juan, Puerto Rico; Montego Bay, Jamaica; Georgetown, Grand Cayman; Roatan, Honduras; as well as Tortola, Antigua, Barbados and St. Lucia.
