Shore excursions

Iconic sights, awe-inspiring scenery, and compelling local cultures - each port of call is brimming with exciting possibilities.

 To help you experience the very best of your destinations, Cunard offers a diverse selection of excursions ashore, from leisurely sightseeing to exciting activities.

Shore excursions are created by a team of destination experts who work closely with carefully selected, reliable local operators and are designed to suit all ages, interests and abilities. Once you’ve booked your holiday, you’ll be able to browse through excursions tailored to your specific cruise and purchase your tours in advance through Voyage Personaliser.

Once you log in to your booking, you will also be able to see more shore excursion images and videos to bring your tours alive. If you simply want to find out more about the types of excursion we offer, check our destination pages to browse the range of tours for each port.

Places are limited on some excursions and the most popular tend to sell out early, so the sooner you book, the better. Booking ahead also helps you to spread the cost of your holiday.
