Cunard ships embark every January for approximately three months. While at sea, the ship circumnavigates various parts of the globe. With the advantage of the extended time at sea, your stay often allows for two or more full days to explore. Cunard is one of the oldest names in the industry yet they have the youngest fleet at sea. Through a thoughtful combination of tradition and innovation, Cunard is able to create a unique worldly experience for every traveler, including you.
In January 2013 Queen Victoria and flagship Queen Mary 2 will set sail from Southampton, England on “epic voyages around the globe with the ships together visiting 55 unique ports of call in 28 countries.” The itineraries offer overnights stays in Sydney, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Dubai on Queen Victoria; and overnight stays in Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai and a two-night overnight in Cape Town on Queen Mary 2.
Queen Victoria makers her return to the World Voyage in 2013 featuring departures from New York, Ft. Lauderdale and San Francisco.
