February 13 - 20, 2024, Queen Elizabeth

Australia is a nation where sport is part of the DNA. Locals celebrate and suffer together; it keeps communities connected and entertained. Cunard’s inspiring new themed voyage will celebrate some of the country’s most celebrated current and former sport stars.

During candid talks, guests will hear from legends from different sports about their careers, their highs and lows, their motivations, and their career-defining moments, which are sure to inspire.

This 7-night sailing from Sydney, visiting Tasmania and Melbourne, will feature interactive Q&A and panel sessions, tailored entertainment and activities, as well as bespoke themed Shore Experiences*. Guests on board Queen Elizabeth’s Voyage of Sporting Greats will have the opportunity to meet outstanding athletes and take away fresh and inspiring views from the living legends.

Please note that some on board experiences have limited spaces; we advise you book online via My Cunard early to avoid disappointment. Bookings will open closer to the voyage departure date.
