Cunard president Simon Palethorpe said: “Our event voyages have become a much-loved cornerstone of our brand.

“They are known for giving guests exclusive access to notable global luminaries in their fields, whilst also providing an opportunity to delve into one’s passions, from entertainment to literature to art, all within the luxurious surroundings of our ships.

“Our line-up for 2022 sees a welcome return of guest favourite event voyages as well as ones we hope will also become as revered in the future.”
