Cruise Highlight – Transit the Panama Canal

transit-panama-canal If you are interested in maritime engineering or iconic journeys, this should be high up your list of must-sails. This legendary canal is steeped with intrigue and blessed with ever-changing scenery. As you pass through the locks at either side of Gatun Lake, you’re slowly rising to, and dropping from, 26 metres above sea level, avoiding the lengthy and treacherous alternative route via Cape Horn.



Cruise Highlight – Hong Kong, China

hong-kong-china Contradiction is part of Hong Kong’s attraction. While the city buzzes with modern commerce, soaring skyscrapers and sophistication, it remains a place of ancient beliefs and intriguing local customs.

Your guide to Hong Kong

Few cities balance old and new like Hong Kong. A city as fiercely modern as it is traditional, life here pulses with vigour and vitality while still honouring ancient customs and beliefs. Market traders hawk steaming dumplings on neon-lit streets. Sacred temples stand in the shadow of skyscrapers and luxury boutiques populate glossy shopping centres. Contradiction is all part of Hong Kong’s appeal, the city’s dynamic personality a complementary blend of Chinese and British influences. Heralded as one of the world’s foremost culinary, cultural and commercial capitals, a port call here provides myriad ways to satisfy your stomach, your senses and your suitcase.


Hong Kong buzzes with grand galleries, thriving art complexes and auspicious temples. Retreat among the city’s parks, or travel back to the time of tea houses and Cantonese opera. Hong Kong’s rich history and contemporary flair shine through in Tai Kwun Centre, a fascinating and forward-thinking arts complex. Kowloon Park, with its two-tiered lotus pond and basking terrapins, provides the perfect refuge from city life, while climbing Victoria Peak reveals spectacular city views. Finally, pay a visit to the incense-infused Man Mo Temple. This sacred tribute to the Gods of War and Literature has welcomed worshippers in Hong Kong since the 19th century.

Eating and drinking

A true culinary capital, Hong Kong is home to over sixty Michelin-starred restaurants, countless traditional eateries and an abundance of street food vendors. The city’s ever-growing coffee scene also has plenty to offer, including top-of-the-line java and accomplished latte art. Stop in for dim sum at one of many contemporary restaurants or seek out traditional Sichuan dishes that evoke the romance of old Beijing. Whether you’re sipping cocktails from a rooftop bar in Kowloon or browsing the countless smouldering food stalls at Temple Street’s atmospheric Night Market, Hong Kong is an explosion of fragrance, colour and flavour.


Shopping in Hong Kong is a thrilling experience. The city is home to countless speciality markets as well as world-class retail centres. Of the former, the Ladies’ Market is one of the most popular in the city, bustling with clothing and footwear stalls. Jade Market (as you might anticipate) specialises in jade jewellery, while Stanley Market is renowned for its Chinese handicrafts. Times Square Mall (inspired by its New York namesake) and Pacific Place are both gargantuan shopping plazas, while Landmark is considered Hong Kong’s Holy Grail of designer shopping, boasting an affluent blend of high-end labels and Michelin-starred restaurants.

Beyond Hong Kong

Venture beyond Hong Kong to the stunning metropolis of Macau, the small fishing village of Tai O or Tian Tan Buddha. Like its U.S counterpart, Macau is a casino capital with bright lights and glitzy hotels that echo the Las Vegas strip. The city is a world away from Tai O on Lantau Island, where fishermen live a humble existence in stilt houses straddling the water. While on Lantau, be sure to see Tian Tan Buddha (commonly known as Big Buddha). A glass-bottomed cable car will transport you to the summit, and the views on the way up are worth the trip alone.



Cruise Highlight – Cape Town, South Africa

cape-town-south-africa Cape Town isn’t just one of the most beautiful cities in the world – it’s also circled by magnificent beaches, rugged mountains and idyllic vineyards, all located on the stunning shores of Table Bay.

Your guide to Cape Town

Situated at the foot of Table Mountain, Cape Town inhabits one of the most enviable settings in the world. Soaring mountains, fertile valleys, sweeping beaches and a sunny climate are the norm here, while the city’s attractions include museums, gardens, historic buildings and superb restaurants to savour. If venturing beyond Cape Town, the verdant vineyards of Stellenbosch and the historical architecture of Simon’s Town are little more than an hour’s drive away. Alternatively, ride the Flying Dutchman Funicular at the awe-inspiring Cape Point or visit Boulders Beach where walking amongst native African penguins is just one way to pass the time.


Cape Town’s most famous attraction, Table Mountain, has its own dedicated Aerial Cableway that delivers you from ground to summit in just five minutes. It’s outside of the city but if you choose to make the journey you won’t be disappointed. To say the views are spectacular is an understatement. Central Cape Town also offers plenty to explore, from the 18th Century Koopmans de Wet House and the Old Town House on Greenmarket Square – a small gallery housed in a former City Hall. Along Government Avenue you’ll find several other noteworthy sights including South Africa’s oldest gardens, St George’s Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament and The South African Museum.

Eating and drinking

Cape Town is a gastronomic haven for foodies. The proximity to the sea means the freshest local catch is never in short supply and the city is now home to several popular sushi restaurants, while fish and chips – a British favourite – is also widely represented. For a truly authentic taste of South Africa try a traditional braai (BBQ) and choose Boerewors – a native South African sausage, popular throughout the region. A diverse selection of restaurants serving a variety of cuisines can be found along Victoria and Albert waterfront. The choice here is extensive and far-reaching, catering to everything from classic American to the freshest local oysters.


From flea markets and malls to specialist boutiques, the shopping choices in Cape Town are infinite and the city offers a wealth of ways to source that all important holiday keepsake. Gold, diamonds and semi-precious stones are widely available while African woodcarvings and woven goods make great souvenirs. The flea market, held at Greenmarket Square, is the place to source these kinds of crafts and the Square itself is a delightful place to visit. Alternatively, head to Victoria and Alfred Waterfront where Cape Town locals shop and eat. Largely pedestrianised, it’s a thoroughly worthwhile place to spend time and easily equals the waterfronts of Sydney and San Francisco.

Beyond Cape Town

Travelling beyond Cape Town unlocks more of South Africa’s salt white beaches and world-famous wineries. Several Cape vineyards are within an hour of the city and a historic double-decker tram travels between them, rewarding you with incredible views as you voyage. Also, just an hour from Cape Town is Simon’s Town – one of South Africa’s oldest towns – where you’ll be able to get up close to native African penguins at Boulders Beach. The area offers charming antique shops and quaint cafés, while a little further on still brings you to the awe-inspiring Cape Point and the chance to ride the Flying Dutchman Funicular.

Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria is similar in size and layout to her sister ship, Queen Elizabeth, but with her own distinct personality and feel. Her classical décor has an Edwardian elegance – warm-toned and plush – executed with Cunard’s hallmark flair. She’s also the holder of several firsts. The first Cunard ship to have a female Captain – Inger Klein Thorhauge, and the first in the world to offer private boxes at sea in the Royal Court Theatre. Fans of Queen Victoria – and they are legion – often remark on her unusual cosiness. Because, while she’s every inch a grand ship in terms of size and décor, she has a particularly warm and intimate feeling throughout.. Queen Victoria Destinations:

Dining on your Cunard Cruise

cunard-world-voyage-dining If anything sums up the freedom of your voyage, it’s the array of places to eat. From healthy to hearty and from light bites to haute cuisine, often what’s on offer reflects where you are in the world as our chefs use fresh local ingredients. You’ll also discover many delicious vegetarian dishes, and we’ll happily cater for special dietary requirements too. Whether you’re dining in the Britannia Restaurant or Grills, everything is beautifully presented and offered with a discerning selection of wines to complement your choice perfectly. On board all Cunard ships, buffet-style dining is available throughout the day and until late evening. For those more informal lunches, the ever-popular Golden Lion Pub welcomes you with traditional gastro-pub fare. ‘Dining out’ is always an option. Every evening, in the Kings Court or Lido restaurants, our ships offer alternative dining options. Including Italian, Indian, Pan Asian, Mexican, and American Smokehouse menus, you can enjoy a change from your main restaurant anytime, and ‘dine out’ for a modest supplement. An additional alternative is Steakhouse at The Verandah, which takes influence from both sides of the Atlantic. Our chefs have curated a menu showcasing prime USDA grain finished New York strip steak, Maine lobster, and Alaskan king crab, alongside dishes celebrating British provenance such as Scotch grass-fed dry-aged beef and Salt Marsh lamb rack. Offerings from further afield such as renowned Wagyu beef from Australia also feature.

Activities and Evening Entertainment on board your Cunard Cruise

So much to do, So much time

You could try something new with Cunard every day and never experience it all. Escape into a world of possibilities with as much or as little to do as you please. Ease into a day of blissful relaxation, or explore the many experiences that await you. You may care to stroll around the Promenade Deck; three laps of Queen Mary 2’s Promenade Deck is one mile. Or you may wish to lose yourself in the largest library at sea, discover the only floating planetarium, or join our sommeliers for a wine-tasting from our vast cellar. Perhaps the time has come to start that novel; our classes can guide you. Or be taught to tango, try fencing, or learn how to mix the perfect Martini in our Martini Mixology classes. You might even meet an astronaut at one of our Insight lectures. Guests often say there is so much to do, they rarely find time to appreciate their stateroom.

Evenings on Board

Evenings on board offer many pleasures: deciding where to dine, wondering whether to dance, mingle, or enjoy a show. Then, of course, there’s the fun of dressing for the occasion. On our much-loved Gala Evenings, which are the highlight of the voyage for many, we invite you to dress to impress as the celebratory atmosphere is heightened across the ship. There are two or three of these special Gala Evenings for every seven days of your voyage. Many of our guests sail with Cunard precisely because they love a reason to step out in style. Of course, should you prefer to spend your evenings in more relaxed attire, a selection of casual dining and entertainment venues is always available for your enjoyment.

Every Evening is an Event!

On each ship, the full-sized Royal Court Theatre is the setting for West End-quality shows. Some nights feature singers or comedians, other times you might catch a classical drama or a spectacular musical. On board Queen Victoria you can enjoy your own private box – the first of its kind at sea – where you can be served champagne. If you’re feeling lucky, maybe the casino calls. Or the beautiful sprung dance floor in the Queens Room ballroom where our themed balls are held. Or one of our nightclubs. As you explore the ship, live music is around every corner from solo harpists and classical recitals to jazz ensembles. In the Golden Lion pub, karaoke nights and quizzes always draw a lively and informal crowd.



Cunard Spa Treatments

Gently bubbling spa pools for luxuriating, balmy thermal suites for lounging, and vast ocean views for absorbing. Welcome to Cunard’s sensuous on board spas. These havens of pampering and wellness are tranquil retreats where you can soothe, rejuvenate, and detoxify with a wide assortment of indulgent treatments. Between a soak in the whirlpool and a tête-à-tête with friends, you might choose to immerse yourself in a novel, or simply drift in and out of sleep on your warm tile bed. Should you wish to slow the pace even further, you can listen to piano music in our Retreat Lounge before unwinding with a full body massage.
