  • Each of our three Queens offer their own interpretations of this corner of the world. Tracing Asia’s southern shore links together an incredible diversity of destinations.

Asia, by Cunard 2019.

  • Dig beneath the surface and you'll discover a rich and intricate tapestry of cultures, beliefs and traditions woven around thousands of years of architecture and history. Trace famous trade routes aboard Queen Mary 2, glimpse ancient civilisations, and discover natural wonders.

  • Dubai, the shopping capital of the Middle East, combines ultra-modern shopping malls with vibrant marketplaces. On a maiden call to Qatar, you can wander amongst white mosques covered with arabesques or stroll along seven kilometres of verdant coastline bordered by palm trees, gardens, and restaurants.

  • In Muscat, souks piled high with silver, frankincense, and handmade Omani clothing compete for your attention with hot springs, lavish palaces, and a pink marble mosque crowned by a gilded dome.

  • Goa is a small paradise of coconut palm-lined beaches, green rice fields and flower gardens. Walls covered with azulejos testify to its Portuguese influence.

  • Equally impressive wildlife, scenery, and shopping beckon in Sri Lanka. Then the hushed temples and dreamy beaches of Phuket, with delicious Thai cuisine. Finally, the cultural gems, scented countryside, and great apes of tropical Malaysia, before scintillating Singapore or Hong Kong.

  • The culinary centre of Vietnam then calls: Nha Trang retains its small-town atmosphere with a local population known for their friendliness. The port of Phu My is gateway to Ho Chi Minh City, which is still fondly known as Saigon, and is thrilling, chaotic, with traces of French colonial influence.

  • Singapore's amazing tale tells of a once sleepy fishing village that defied the odds to transform itself into a first-word metropolis. Kuala Lumpur fuses Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures, jumbling Moorish architecture with stately parks.

  • Bustling Penang beckons before a call to the relaxing Malaysian resort of Langkawi, where a beautiful series of lagoons linked by cascading waterfalls await. India's Chennai offers wonderful temples and carvings while Cochin (also known as Kochi) on the Malabar coast dates to Roman times.

Asia, by Cunard 2020.

  • From the desert grandeur and exotic wonders of Persia to the dynastic delights of Japan’s outlying islands, and every destination in between, your journey through Asia offers a stunning diversity of discoveries.

  • Dubai is an oasis of extravagance and the shopping capital of the Middle East, with ultra-modern shopping malls and flamboyant modern architecture. Doha in Qatar is also an ambitious and fast growing modern city, with an excellent museum of Islamic art and a large traditional marketplace for crafts, clothing, and spices.

  • Off India’s south-eastern shores lies Sri Lanka, a land of fertile green slopes and remnants of millennia-old civilisations. Its capital Colombo is a key port on ancient east-west trade routes, with attractive European-influenced architecture.

  • Kuala Lumpur features a delightful mix of Malayan, Chinese, and Indian cultures, as well as the soaring Petronas Towers, while the enchanting island of Borneo boasts stunning beaches, towering mountains, and inquisitive primates.

  • Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City is a multi-layered melting pot of history, and a great destination for exotic food. Also known for its curious cuisines, Hong Kong has a unique charm amidst its fusion of modern soaring skyscrapers, small gilded shrines, and crowded harbour, with traditional junks bobbing next to modern yachts.

  • Tianjin is your gateway to one of the most exciting regions in China, with Beijing to its north. Both cities offer myriad attractions, cultural riches, and superb cuisines, yet Beijing offers arguably the most complete Chinese experience. Its ancient sites include the Temples of Heaven and the Forbidden City.

  • Nature has been generous to the Korean island of Jeju-do, home to the mythical Cheonjeyon Falls and the stunning scenery of Sunrise Peak. South Korea’s second-largest city, Bujan, also offers beautiful natural settings to explore, with a soothing medley of culture and history. It’s also near South Korea’s cultural capital, Gyeongju, and the fortress of Jinju.

  • Effervescent Yokohama is another epicentre of culinary diversity, and also your stepping stone to Tokyo, where cherry trees and dynastic temples mingle with neon-lit futuristic skyscrapers and busy street-level shops.
