Two cruises cancelled as Queen Victoria heads for early refit

14 August 2014

Cunard has dropped two sailings from Queen Victoria's schedule in order to carry out maintenance work on the ship's propulsion system.
The Carnival Spirit-class vessel has had to enter dry dock nearly a year earlier than previously intended in order to have a bearing replaced in time for a world cruise beginning 20 January 2015.
As a result a 12-day trip to the Canaries on 3 January and a five-day excursion to Amsterdam and Cherbourg on 15 January 2015 have been cancelled; affected passengers will receive either a $175 (£105) rebooking credit, or a full refund, as preferred.
While in dock at Blohm & Voss in Hamburg, Cunard's smallest ship will also receive a multimillion-pound refit that will include nine single staterooms, new shops and a more environmentally friendly filtration system for engine exhaust gas.
