World Cruises 2018

Cunard pioneered the World Voyage in 1922, and to this day, nothing compares to this iconic journey.

The early days of 2018 will see the start of more grand voyages for our ships. Our World Voyages provide a uniquely convenient way to explore the opposite side of the globe, and to discover two countries or even two continents during one adventure.

Each itinerary is filled with a sense of adventure and the thrill of exploring the unknown – from bustling markets in world cities to local delights off the beaten track - enhanced by the comfort in which you arrive. What’s more, the attention our ships frequently receive creates an extra sense of occasion, right around the globe, with you right at the centre of the excitement.

No matter where you choose to explore, you can be sure of an experience like no other, where pampering and luxury await after a busy day exploring and where your favourite cocktail or bottle of wine is waiting for you at dinner.

Whether you choose to start your journey in Southampton, San Francisco or Fort Lauderdale your Cunard World Voyage promises to be spectacular.

On departure from Australia, Queen Mary 2 will visit Malaysia, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Thailand, allowing access to a wide array of exotic Asian cultures. On her return leg, our majestic flagship will make a call to Aqaba for the ancient site of Petra before transiting the Suez Canal and calling at the classic Mediterranean destinations of Rome and Barcelona.

Embarkation ports.

In 2018 we have a range of embarkation ports in which you can join us for your world adventure.

More evenings in ports.

We have extended the time our ships will be in some of the ports of call, which will give you time to experience selected destinations into the evening – offering a different perspective on some fascinating cities and even more time to soak up the atmosphere of these remarkable destinations.
