The new programme also includes 37 overnight port calls and 66 late-evening departures. 

Five maiden calls for the fleet cover Kona, Hawaii; Roatan, Honduras; Dakar, Senegal; Miami; and Molde in Norway.

Queen Anne will embark on a 109-night voyage from Southampton on January 11, 2016, while Queen Mary 2 will depart on the same date on a  51-night itinerary to Sydney via the Panama Canal.

Queen Elizabeth will sail on a new programme in the Caribbean, with 33 departures from Miami to destinations including San Juan, Puerto Rico; Montego Bay, Jamaica; Georgetown, Grand Cayman; Roatan, Honduras; as well as Tortola, Antigua, Barbados and St Lucia.

Queen Victoria will cruise the Mediterranean, the Atlantic islands and Norway.

All cruises are on sale from 1pm on March 7, with access available 24 hours earlier to World Club loyalty scheme members.

Cunard president Katie McAlister said: “We are incredibly excited to have both Queen Anne and Queen Mary 2 offer full world voyages in 2026. We are so thrilled that our guests will, for the first time ever, have the opportunity to transit the Panama Canal on Queen Mary 2.

“Queen Elizabeth will also take in a new programme to the Caribbean, sailing roundtrip from Miami, giving guests expanded opportunities to delve into this tropical region while experiencing the unparalleled luxury of sailing aboard a Cunard ship.”
