(7:05 a.m. EDT) -- Cunard has launched a number of new types of sailings on Queen Elizabeth including three- and four-night cruises around the UK and the re-introduction of fly-cruises to Barcelona.

The ship will restart operations from Southampton on March 26 and operate a series of three- to 14-day cruises around Europe before making its way through Asia to Australia at the end of the season.

All sailings on the Cunard fleet have been paused until next spring due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

"We are thrilled to announce such a broad new programme for Queen Elizabeth, with sailings from Southampton and, later in 2021, from Barcelona," said Cunard president, Simon Palethorpe.

"For her first few sailings, we are introducing new, shorter scenic voyages that will sail along some of the UK’s most magnificent coastlines, from the Isles of Scilly, off Cornwall to Scotland’s Inner Hebrides.

The 2021 itineraries will feature a series of overnight port calls to Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Rotterdam, Singapore and Auckland, with late evening departures from Amsterdam, Barcelona, Rotterdam, Aqaba, Colombo and Fremantle.

With the upgrade promotion, prices for a Balcony cabin start at £299 per person for a British Isles scenic cruise.

Queen Elizabeth is currently moored off the south coast of England, along with a large number of other cruise ships.
