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.

Join as Queen Anne is greeted for the first time in charismatic La Coruña, in northwest Spain, and Lisbon, an iconic city that has long been a symbol of Portuguese maritime exploration.

Sailing roundtrip from Southampton on May 3, 2024, the 7-night maiden voyage will first stop off at the captivating city of La Coruña, where delectable seafood and ancient Roman architecture await.

Then, in Lisbon you can spend time exploring UNESCO-listed Belém Tower, the exquisite palaces of Sintra, or perhaps simply relax and sample a local egg custard tart while savoring a warm breeze.

When you’re not discovering these two charming ports, make the most of ample time on board to relax, dine, and discover all that Queen Anne has to offer during sea days.

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 2024.
