Summer cruises

Whether you choose the warmer climates of the Mediterranean, or Alaska’s majestic waterways, a summer cruise with Cunard brings opportunities to sail the world in sublime style and comfort.

Summer cruise destinations

The Cunard Queens sail all over the world. Explore colonial history in the USA and Canada, or marvel at the remarkable Norwegian fjords. A vacation with Cunard is the ultimate escape from the everyday; a world in which to relax and unwind, free from life’s responsibilities.

USA and Canada

From the wilds of Canada’s vast emerald forest to Florida’s palm-fringed beaches, a voyage to the USA or Canada brings untold possibilities. History lovers and sun seekers alike will look forward to time in port, while the region’s enigmatic shoreline will prove a sight to behold as you sail.


The vivid blues and ice-white hues of Alaska provide perhaps one of the most awe-inspiring backdrops you may ever find. Delight in spotting wildlife from the deck, exploring local culture in port, and discovering the flavors of this great land with Alaska-inspired dishes served on board.

Norwegian fjords

The scenery that awaits on a Norwegian fjords voyage is simply unparalleled. There is nowhere quite so ethereal, yet exciting. Gaze in awe as you sail glass-like waters, stopping in Norway’s charming, colorful port towns along the way.

Transatlantic Crossings

As iconic now as it was 175 years ago, a Transatlantic Crossing with Cunard is a chance to escape and take pleasure in the things you most enjoy. It’s a journey like no other. Whether you arrive at or sail away from Manhattan, this skyline is certainly one best viewed from the decks of a Cunard Queen.


A firm favorite, especially for those who are new to cruising, the Mediterranean offers a wealth of charm in every port. Retrace the footsteps of emperors in Greece, dine on unforgettable dishes in Italy, and in Spain, white sandy beaches and delicious sangria await.

Short summer cruise breaks

Escape it all, if just for a few days, on a short summer cruise. Choose from an array of voyages lasting from 1 to 5 nights, giving you the opportunity to rest and take time away from life’s unending everyday tasks. Whether a vacation to you means a pint of craft ale in the Golden Lion or lazing by the pool as you sail to new adventures, a Cunard voyage can be whatever you want to it to be.

Summer cruises from New York

Take any concerns about flying out of the equation by opting for a sailing that departs from New York. By choosing a New York – New York cruise, you’ll enjoy unlimited luggage allowance*, no airport queues (a particular advantage if you’re sailing with children, or those with limited mobility), and also the opportunity to explore this historical, maritime city.

*While you’re welcome to bring as many pieces of luggage as you’d like, we ask that no individual piece weighs more than 50lbs, to ensure safe handling by our crew.
