Unwind. Embrace a sense of freedom. Enjoy life with no responsibilities – if only for a week or so. A voyage with Cunard brings a chance to travel the world in comfort and style, spending time doing as much or as little as you like. The Cunard Queens have so much choice on board, you’ll find everything you need to create your perfect holiday, no matter your age and no matter your passions.
The Cunard fleet currently includes three iconic ships, Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth, but will soon welcome a fourth in 2024 with the arrival of Queen Anne. No matter which ship you sail on, each day on board brings new possibilities. Art classes and fine dining. Pub fare and karaoke. An opportunity to simply lay back by the pool, cocktail in hand, and do nothing at all. The choice is yours (it is your holiday after all).
The world’s only true ocean liner, the elegant Queen Mary 2 was built to sail the open seas and cut through Atlantic waves with ease. Queen Elizabeth invites you to feel at home straight away, with her variety of different spaces to suit every mood, and Queen Victoria is perfect for basking in the sun as you gaze out to sea and at the shoreline, thanks to a spacious sun deck.
And then there’s Queen Anne. A ship inspired by the past but built for the future, Queen Anne perfectly blends the classic and the contemporary. Those devoted to the Cunard brand will love the reimagined signature spaces they’ll recognise on board, like the Golden Lion and the Queens Room, but there are all sorts of new experiences that are begging to be explored, such as the softly lit Pavilion Wellness Studio with expansive ocean views and the Bright Lights Society, a dazzling new show bar where you’re invited to share an electric evening of wonder. These are just two of a whole host of exciting spaces in store.
On board a Cunard Queen, find untold opportunities to experience something new. Take in a West End style show. Enjoy fascinating Insight talks with some very special guests, from eminent authors to well-known politicians. Indulge (at least once or twice) in a delicious Afternoon Tea, complete with Cunard’s signature, crumbly scones. That’s when you’re not treasuring peaceful hours spent wildlife watching or gazing out to sea from spacious decks. And, while enjoying all of this, find comfort in knowing that all the finer details have been taken care of, thanks to Cunard’s renowned White Star Service.
You could spend days letting any stress you’re feeling drift away, with a hot stone, seaweed, or even bamboo massage at Mareel Spa and Beauty. Or perhaps you’ll choose a cut and colour at the salon for a fresh look. You could push yourself at the gym by morning and glam up for a sparking Gala Evening by night, maybe with a Cunard cocktail (why stop at one?) in between. Make special memories on board every day, without even trying.
When it comes to dining, Cunard leave little to be desired. Enjoy an ever-changing menu at your main restaurant, or perhaps opt for complimentary round-the-clock room service. Be spoilt for choice at the steakhouse, offering the best of land and sea, or choose the popular Golden Lion, where a menu of classic pub fare presents a dilemma when deciding what to order. Menus often take influence from the destinations in which you sail, plus you’ll find pop-up restaurants that showcase cuisine such as Mediterranean, Scandinavian, and pan-Asian, depending on where you are in the world.
As pioneers of world travel, voyages with Cunard take in enchanting destinations in all four corners of the world. You could choose anything from an extraordinary World Voyage of over 100 nights, to shorter breaks of just a few days. Many voyages also include overnight stops and late departures in various ports, meaning you have plenty of time to explore.
Unlock spectacular scenes of fjords, glaciers, and tumbling waterfalls in Alaska and Norway, find street food like you’ve never tasted in Asia and South America, see unforgettable natural landscapes in Australia and New Zealand, or lay back and simply enjoy the sunshine on palm-fringed beaches in the Caribbean or Mediterranean and wander down medieval streets throughout Europe. Not forgetting the iconic Transatlantic Crossing, a voyage that’s been synonymous with Cunard for over 180 years.
The coming years are set to see some very special milestones for Cunard, with Queen Anne making her maiden voyage in May 2024, when she’ll be greeted for the first time in the charming city of Lisbon. Then, in 2025, she’ll embark on her very first World Voyage. The white sands of the South Pacific and Australasia’s vibrant cities are among the highlights of this adventure, as are overnight stops in New York, Honolulu, Sydney, Singapore, and Dubai. Queen Anne’s World Voyage will take in unmissable destinations all over the world, before returning to Europe via the Mediterranean Sea.
Each and every holiday on a Cunard Queen brings with it a chance to explore fascinating cultures and cuisines across the globe. See UNESCO World Heritage sites in almost every port, and maybe book yourself onto a Shore Experience, to ensure the time you spend off the ship is just as special as the days you spend onboard.
Whether you seek busy days immersing yourself in every destination you call at, or you’d rather spend your holiday relaxing and savouring every minute of the excellent White Star Service onboard, you’ll find what you’re looking for on a Cunard Queen. Contact us today to find out more.
