Spend your week at sea exploring everything your Cunard Queen has to offer, from elegant Afternoon Tea and Gala Evening events, to deck games and fast paced fitness classes. You’ll also find plenty of opportunities to learn more about the world of classical music, and the celebrated and charismatic conductor that is Anthony Inglis, as he talks candidly about his career at relaxed Q&A sessions.

A chance to rehearse with the choir is another voyage highlight. Enjoy the opportunity to put your own vocal strengths to the test with the best and join the group performance on stage in the Royal Court Theatre in the evening.

The National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) has been sailing on Cunard voyages for many years. Ahead of the 2023 voyage, we spoke with conductor Anthony Inglis, NSO Managing Director and Artistic Director Justin Pearson, and our very own Captain Hashmi, to reflect on their experiences in a special Cunard Stories article.
