You could indulge yourself on a month’s Grand Voyage from Singapore with Queen Victoria, taking in memorable sights from beautiful Indian Ocean islands to the world’s highest sand dunes at Namibia. Meanwhile, Queen Mary 2 sails to Athens and to UNESCO treasures such as Seville’s Gothic cathedral. Enjoy two days in Haifa, Israel, then see the Suez canal before arriving at the modern wonder of Dubai. On Queen Elizabeth, set sail on an exciting 27-night tour from Japan to explore Alaska's beautifully remote landscapes and its thriving wildlife before this epic cruise arrives in Vancouver.

  • 2020. This year, our Grand Voyages offer more than 30 itineraries to inspire your sense of adventure. A small selection of 2020's highlights: sail west from Southampton with Queen Victoria for 32 nights' exploration of exuberant culture and tropical scenery in the Southern United States, the Caribbean, and South America. Visit an opera house deep in the Amazon, dive shipwrecks in Barbados and stop at Brazil's capital of happiness, Salvador. Aboard flagship Queen Mary 2, Hong Kong's the springboard for a 25-night journey of discovery. En route to Perth, call at Indonesia, with the opportunity to swim with colourful sea life, then on to discover six Australian destinations from the idyllic Whitsunday Islands to contemporary Melbourne. Queen Elizabeth begins an extraordinary voyage from Yokohama, near Tokyo, with two more Japanese calls before arriving in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russia. Head north east across the International Date Line to frozen wildernesses, incredible wildlife, mighty glaciers and gold rush towns of Alaska.

Port highlights.

A sample of Cunard's many inspired Grand Voyage destinations.

    • Cape Town, South Africa.

      Not only is Cape Town one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but it is also surrounded by magnificent beaches, rugged mountains and renowned vineyards. On a fine day savour an awe-inspiring cable car ride up Table Mountain, perhaps take a poignant tour of Robben Island or take a cultural trip to Stellenbosch and its surrounding wine lands.

    • Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

      Dubai is a place of fascinating contrasts, a distinctive blend of East and West, old and new. Gaze upon astounding extravagance at man-made resorts and delve into a culture that has long drawn globe-trotting visitors. The Jumeira Mosque, glittering Gold Souk, or a Heritage Village all showcase ancient Bedouin craftsmanship. View all Grand Voyages to Dubai
    • Hong Kong, China.

      Hong Kong is a paradigm of contradictions. On the one hand the city vibrates with modern commerce, soaring skyscrapers and sophistication. But at the same time it is a land of ancient beliefs and intriguing local customs: small, gilded shrines glow with red lamps, joss sticks and fresh oranges; markets are heaped high with salted eggs, squid and every kind of medicinal root and herbal remedy imaginable; red-sailed junks and sampans ply the harbour.

    • Lisbon, Portugal.

      Portugal’s capital spreads its ancient sites on seven steep hillsides that overlook the Tagus River. Feast your eyes on São Jorge Castle which overlooks the city atop the highest hill, or the countless balconies ablaze with geraniums and wrought iron lamps that light up the medieval Alfama quarter. Wander up to the Bairro Alto where you may hear the voices of the sorrowful fado singers ring out from cafés. View all Grand Voyages to Lisbon
    • San Francisco, USA.

      Sitting between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Nevada mountains, laid-back San Francisco is home to an eclectic mix of cultures and the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge. Survey the superb vistas over the Bay or traverse the steep rolling hills by tram. Explore 'The Rock' of Alcatraz, visit the Museum of Modern Art or head for the celebrated vineyards of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. View all Grand Voyages to San Franscisco
    • Singapore city, Singapore.

      Singapore’s trading heritage has rapidly developed. The city is now recognised as the world’s busiest port and one of the financial and business capitals of the world. But it is not all business, buildings and bustle here. Nicknamed Garden City, areas of greenery account for 50 percent of Singapore, with 50 major parks and four nature reserves providing respite from the fast pace of prosperity.

    • Republic of Mauritius, Indian Ocean.

      The obvious appeal of Mauritius is not hard to miss; the tropical maritime climate and white sandy beaches fringing a diverse, verdant landscape. But Mauritius is not just for sunbathing - the cultural diversity and historical significance of this island is all too often overlooked. Check out the Black River Gorges National Park, the largest park in Mauritius, which preserves and protects the local flora and fauna. View all Grand Voyages to Mauritius
    • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

      Rio will command your non-stop attention from the moment you set foot on its shores – on the golden sands of Copacabana or Ipanema. Climb Sugarloaf Mountain by cable car, or feel the intoxicating rhythms of the samba as night falls. Rio is an amazing experience – a city everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime.
