I'm sure I recall seeing postings here with lists of speakers, shows, etc for specific voyages, but cannot now locate them. Nor can I find such lists on the Cunard (US) website, not even the Voyage Personaliser (which doesn't seem very personalised to me). Maybe it's just me, but would some kind person direct me to the relevant links?

The lists of speakers for each ship can be found within the documents linked to near the bottom of this page on the Cunard US web site

which can be reached via "The Cunard Experience", "Life on Board", "Guest Speakers".

 

https://www.cunard.com/life-on-board/guest-speakers/

 

Right now, these speaker lists only go through the end of 2018 (and for QE, not quite that far).

 

There are no schedules for the theatre shows.

I am dying to see who is on for QM2’s World Voyage next year.

 

Based on previous years, at what stage is this published?

Last year, Cunard posted Insight Guest Lecturer lists covering the following voyage dates for each ship:

 

QM2: October 6, 2017 through September 16, 2018

QE: October 8, 2017 through April 4, 2018

QV: October 7, 20127 through February 21, 2018

 

I'm not sure when those lists were first posted, but assuming they were posted around the first week of October, and also assuming they keep to the same schedule this year, then perhaps you'll know the speakers for QM2's world voyage in about a month.

Updated lists of Insights Guest Lecturers have been posted on the Cunard web site. They now include speakers for the remainder of 2018 as well as for all of 2019 for QM2 and most of 2019 for QE and QV. Here are direct links to the lists for each ship. Even though these links are to the site for North America ("cunard.com") they should still work in the UK.

 

QM2: https://www.cunard.com/Documents/Enrichment/QM2insights.pdf

QE: https://www.cunard.com/Documents/Enrichment/QEinsights.pdf

QV: https://www.cunard.com/Documents/Enrichment/QVinsights.pdf

 

For Host Hattie, I see David Gower is scheduled for QE voyage Q904 (Perth to Melbourne, February 4-10, 2019).

 

I also see Sir Jackie Stewart is scheduled for a QM2 round-trip crossing from Southampton (voyages M908 and M909, April 14-28, 2019).

Thank you bluemarble.

In January this year we had David Gower, and delighted to see we have Henry Bloefeld on our Caribbean voyage in November. Yes, we are cricket lovers!

It appears that for some of the further out voyages, only one or two presenters are currently listed. I would expect that as travel time gets nearer there will be more listed. I am going to book mark the pdf for QM2 and take a look from time to time. Thanks for posting the links.

They do tend to add more speakers to the documents in subsequent versions as they become available. And so far this year they have been doing a better job of updating the documents (roughly every three months or so) compared to last year.

 

The current set of documents have generic names such as "QM2insights.pdf" and maybe that's going to be the new standard going forward to keep those same generic document names whenever they are updated. But do be aware that hasn't been the case in the past. The four previous versions of the QM2 insights guest lecturers document have been named "QM2insights_2017.pdf", "CU_QM2insights0108.pdf", "QM2-insights-1803.pdf", "CU_QM2insights0605.pdf".

 

I'm mentioning all that to suggest rather than bookmarking directly to the current documents, a safer approach might be to bookmark the page on the Cunard website containing links to the documents in case they change the document names again in the future. The "Guest speakers" page with links to the insights guest lecturers documents for each ship is found here.

 

US: https://www.cunard.com/life-on-board/guest-speakers/

UK: https://www.cunard.co.uk/life-on-board/guest-speakers/

 

The US site link should automatically redirect to the UK site and vice versa. Just providing both links here for the sake of clarity.
