The most famous Ocean Liners in the world call at 123 destinations in 48 different countries, including 9 maiden calls. Each voyage, whether it’s a 2 night short break or a full 113 night world voyage aims to deliver Cunard's refined journeys for their guests.

Cunard has undertaken more world voyages and sent more ships across the world than any other passenger line, making them the true experts in world voyages. In fact, the concept of world cruising was invented by Cunard in 1922, when the elegant Laconia completed the first ever continuous circumnavigation of the globe by a passenger liner, taking in 22 ports in 130 days.

In 2020, Cunard’s iconic flagship, Queen Mary 2, will embark upon a classic voyage of global exploration, taking in such diverse regions as the Mediterranean, Southern Africa, the Indian Ocean, Australia and Southeast Asia. Queen Elizabeth will carry out a programme of exotic voyages that offer richer, deeper and more regionally-focussed itineraries while Queen Victoria sets sail on a winter escape to South America that is packed full of ‘must-do’ experiences.

Across the fleet, Cunard’s winter programme covers the world, offering a blend of iconic, world-class cities and smaller, less well-known but equally delightful destinations. Their itineraries have been crafted to offer enriching days in port as well as plenty of time on board for you to relax and enjoy all that the ships have to offer.
