Queen Anne's maiden voyage.

Join an illustrious guest list on board Queen Anne’s maiden voyage to Lisbon as we celebrate a new chapter of Cunard history.

Raise a glass on deck as Queen Anne marks her historic maiden departure from Southampton with a spectacular sail away party you’re sure to remember – one of many special experiences you can look forward to on her maiden voyage. Make an entrance in your finest black tie for a night of music and dancing at her Queen Anne Celebration Ball, and feast on course after course of delectable world cuisine at her Maiden Voyage Gala Dinner.

Sparkling premiere performances, bespoke to Cunard, are among the highlights to enjoy as the curtain lifts in her enchanting Royal Court Theatre each evening. In true Cunard style, these will be complemented by special guest appearances from some prestigious faces in the worlds of art and literature, together with celebratory entertainment playing out day and night across the ship.

Join as Queen Anne is greeted for the first time in Lisbon, an iconic city that has long been a symbol of Portuguese maritime exploration. Sailing roundtrip from Southampton on 4 January 2024, the 7-night maiden voyage will offer an overnight port call in which to savour Lisbon’s UNESCO-listed Belém Tower, the exquisite palaces of Sintra, and the wonderfully atmospheric nightlife of the Barrio Alto.

Not only will you have ample time on board to relax, dine, and discover all that Queen Anne has to offer, but you’ll also have the opportunity to explore Lisbon after dark. Watch the world go by as you sip on a glass of wine in a local bistro, or marvel at the pretty lights and majestic cityscape by night.

The maiden voyage is just the beginning. Iconic Mediterranean cities, tropical Caribbean islands, and Norway’s picturesque fjords are all part of Queen Anne's unforgettable maiden season in early 2024.
