The Centenary World Voyages.

Join Cunard in celebrating a century of pioneering ocean travel, as we unveil a season of global adventures inspired by the anniversary of our first World Voyage.

The ultimate adventure, from the pioneers of the World Voyage.

2023 marks 100 years since RMS Laconia completed Cunard’s first World Voyage, and to celebrate we’re embarking on a season of global adventures inspired by this pioneering feat in ocean travel.

Queen Mary 2.

From the heady streets of Safaga on the shores of the Red Sea, to the golden sands of South Africa, Queen Mary 2 will embark from New York on a roundtrip 117-night Centenary World Voyage with in-depth explorations of Australia, Asia and Africa.
See rhinos and elephants on a visit to a wildlife reserve from Port Elizabeth, or savor the iconic design of Sydney’s Opera House on a visit to New South Wales’ cosmopolitan capital. Stops in Mauritius, Réunion and Airlie Beach, bring salt-white sands, gently swaying palms and spellbinding blue sea.

Queen Victoria in 2023.

2023 sees Queen Victoria journey on a 101-night Centenary World Voyage, commemorating 100 years since Cunard’s first circumnavigation of the globe. In the same spirit of exploration, Queen Victoria will visit ten of the ports originally called at by RMS Laconia in her 1923 World Voyage.
A full transit of the Panama Canal offers yet another bucket list experience to relish, while stops ashore in Jordan (gateway to Petra), Tonga and the Samoa Islands are sure to ignite the senses and inspire unforgettable memories.

Queen Elizabeth in 2023.

Starting her 2023 season in Barcelona, Queen Elizabeth will exchange European shores including a maiden call to Vladivostok, for the Asia Pacific, where she’ll embark on a full circumnavigation of Australia, complemented by voyages to Japan, New Zealand, and South East Asia.
Her New Zealand voyages sail through the islands’ famous Fiordland National Park, where waterfalls spill down glacier-carved gullies, while her Japanese itineraries are rich with UNESCO World Heritage sites to explore. Manila, Chan May (gateway to the historic cities of Hue and De Nang) and Busan, in the Republic of Korea, are further highlights of Queen Elizabeth’s vibrant itineraries.

Chosen as “Best World Cruise” in Porthole Cruise Magazine’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.

100 years of dreams realized.

Where each day brings new possibilities, or the exquisite release of doing nothing at all. Where you’re free to be you, without expectations, and time is whatever you want to make it.

Stay out after dark.

Calling overnight reveals a magical other side to your destination. See Times Square bathed in neon light, or savor a legendary Sydney sunset with a glass of Chardonnay.

Stay a little longer.

An evening departure from port means precious extra hours to explore on shore. Discover UNESCO treasures like Ancient Thebes from Safaga, or enjoy a desert dune ride in Dubai.

A Cunard vacation is a chance to relax and unwind.

Lose yourself in the spirit of celebration.

We’ve been taking guests around the globe for more than a century, and today we’re no less dedicated to helping you to discover the places you’ve always dreamed of. It’s the reason vacationing with us isn’t just about the destinations you call at, but the experiences you enjoy along the way.
