A transatlantic crossing from Southampton by Queen Mary 2 was canceled at the last minute due to a technical problem.

Cunard’s flagship was scheduled to depart for New York on Sunday April 23, but passengers were told the ship could not sail.

The seven-night return trip from New York to Southampton was also canceled due to work to resolve the issue taking longer than expected.

Affected passengers were offered a full refund plus a 20% future cruise credit.

A spokesperson for the line said: “Cunard has advised that due to a technical issue which needs to be resolved before the M310/A sailing trip on Queen Mary 2 to New York has been cancelled. As a result, the M311/A trip from New York was also cancelled.

“All guests will receive a full refund and a future cruise credit of 20% of monies paid. This can be used for any future reservations made before April 23, 2025.
