From orchestral performances in secret locations to all-access tours that take you behind the scenes of some of the world’s most iconic buildings, our Signature Shore Experiences offer even more ways to personalise your time in port.


Whether it’s savouring local delicacies and wine tasting in Madeira’s UNESCO-inscribed Enchanted Forest or joining a Fjord Safari to a Goat Cheese Farm in Norway, a Queen Anne voyage opens the door to so many immersive new experiences.  

Get hands-on, helping to craft custard tarts in Lisbon, while learning the rich history behind this signature Portuguese staple, or give glassblowing a go in Haugesund. The choice is yours.


Some experiences allow you to forgo the queues at must-see tourist attractions while others invite you venture off the beaten track to discover the hidden gems only the locals know about. 

With less than six months until Queen Anne’s maiden voyage, Cunard has announced a treasure trove of exclusive, new Shore Experiences for guests sailing on Queen Anne during her maiden season.


We are offering 50 signature Shore Experiences, across 60 ports, providing guests with a variety of immersive encounters with local culture, history, and natural wonders all over Europe.

Romantic italian lunch outside of a couple: copper pan with delicious and spicy fried shrimps with herbs and garlic, bottle of olive oil, wine, bread. Luxury lifestyle, gourmet food.

Throughout her maiden season, Queen Anne will sail from Southampton on itineraries to the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, the Canary Islands, and the Norwegian Fjords, visiting over 60 unique destinations in 16 countries – taking in several of Europe’s most enchanting ancient cities.

“We are all incredibly excited to welcome Queen Anne to the Cunard fleet in May and it is only right that her maiden season is complemented with a truly captivating Shore Experience programme. From ancient ruins and culinary escapades to helicopter rides and private snorkelling sessions, we’re delighted to be able to offer such exciting new Shore Experiences to Queen Anne’s guests.”

Katie McAlister, Cunard President

Queen Anne will set sail on 3 May for her 7-night maiden voyage to La Coruña and Lisbon. She will then depart for a 14-night voyage in the Canary Islands before travelling around the British Isles, visiting Scotland and Ireland, as well as Cunard’s founding home port and spiritual home, Liverpool.
