Cunard World Cruises 2014: due to be announced on 20 August?

Cunard usually announce the World Cruise routes for 2 years ahead by July. This year they are announcing them much later.

It seems they will announce the routes and prices on 20 August 2012 for 2014 World Cruises.

How do we know this?

The MD of Cunard (Peter Shanks) has been reported announcing in Australia the QM2 will do another circumnavigation of Sydney. This was a huge success in 2012.

He said: "When we announced Queen Mary 2s first circumnavigation back in 2010 we had a record number of bookings made within the first day,'' he said.

"Cunard bookings from Australia surged again when she undertook the historic voyage earlier this year.''

Adding that full details will be made public when the full routing is announced on 20 August.

Cruise Message Boards, like Cruise Critic, are seeing people saying the following has been told to them by travel agents about QM2:

Sailing roundtrip from Perth (Fremantle), 12 February 2014 (22 nights)
Sailing roundtrip from Melbourne, 17 February 2014 (23 nights)
Sailing roundtrip from Sydney, 19 February 2014 (23 nights)
Sailing roundtrip from Brisbane, 21 February 2014 (23 nights) 

This suggests that QM2 will get to Australia via South Africa or South America. In 2013 they get there via Asia. Cunard tends to alternate by year the routing route around the world.

Cannot wait - as we will be booking some of the World Cruise 2014..
