The National Executive Committee of Section UK are very pleased to announce details of a British Isles cruise which will coincide with and compliment the 70th Anniversary celebrations being planned for our iconic National Council Meeting in Lincolnshire our founders birthplace.

The quintessentially British Cruise line Cunard have been selected as our chosen host for this memorable event which will take place aboard the Queen Victoria commencing on Sunday 7th June 2020 for 12 nights.

 

We already know many members of both Section UK and indeed all around the globe have registered an interest in being part of this event and have been keen to receive further detail.

A fantastic itinerary is planned and we hope we will be welcomed in a number of ports by other Sections or Regions of the IPA that we visit. We are promised a very special cruise with the opportunity to dine together and meet in an intimate and personal space for pre-dinner drinks. Cunard requires gentlemen to dress for dinner, so jacket needed and a dinner jacket for formal nights. A great opportunity to dress up.

A personal benefit of $75.00 per person has been extended to us for those booking within the 7 day window together with the opportunity to avail ourselves of coach transfers or complimentary parking at Southampton or additional on board credit. I am confident the coach transfer option will be attractive to many members.

Whilst there is presently good availability on all staterooms any seasoned cruisers amongst you will know things change as do prices. To ensure we get the best possible deal Cunard’s group booking process provides a booking code and time window of 7 days during which a booking must be made to confirm the benefits and price on offer. Bookings outside this time may receive different fare options but will still be linked to our main booking.

As you can see from the map above the itinerary provides a unique chance to visit 4 Regions of Section UK together with Section Ireland who have already agreed to meet us.

Stateroom prices – Whilst these are indicative as our booking window is not yet open they are expected to be highly accurate. A 15% deposit is required at the time of booking. Bookings will be made direct with Cunard but collated to ensure we are managed well.

Prices below are Per Person SHARING a 2 berth stateroom.

  • INSIDE FROM - £1699.00 PER PERSON. Total deposit £513.00
  • OCEAN VIEW FROM - £1919.00 PER PERSON. Total deposit £630.00
  • BALCONY FROM - £2099 PER PRSON. Total Deposit £699.00
  • A very limited number of Single staterooms are available from £2973.00
  • Other prices will be available but these will not attract the group booking benefits described above.

PLEASE REGISTER YOUR INTEREST IN JOINING THIS CRUISE BY CONTACTING OUR FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF AT FOX ROAD ON 0115 9813638. WE WILL THEN CONTACT YOU ONCE THE BOOKING WINDOW OPENS IN A FEW WEEKS TO ALLOW YOU TO DEAL DIRECT WITH CUNARD WITH OUR UNIQUE BOOKING CODE.

 

THOSE WHO SHOWED AN INTEREST PREVIOUSLY ARE ASKED TO RECONFIRM NOW FULL DETAILS ARE AVAILABLE. WE HOPE YOU ARE ABLE TO JOIN IN.

 

In friendship
