TRANSIT THE PANAMA CANAL

VIEW

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.

ho-chi-minh-city-worldwide-voyage-cunard

HO CHI MINH CITY, VI

VIEW

Cruise Highlight – Ho Chi Minh City (tours from Phu My), Vi

ho-chi-minh-city
The port of Phu Mey is one of Vietnam’s culinary centres, and your gateway to exploring history-rich Ho Chi Minh City and the seaside resort of Vung Tau. The vibrancy and history offered is enticing.

Still fondly known as Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City is a continuous whirl of the aroma of fresh noodles, the sight of orange-garbed monks and the buzzing of scooters, all in a French colonial backdrop.

Pronounced “Foo Me”, Phu My is the closest port to Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon by the locals. The fastest, safest and simplest way to reach the city is by bus, through one of our shore excursions. The journey takes around an hour and a half, meaning you can dock in the morning and be exploring the legendary Ho Chi Minh City by early afternoon.

Ho Chi Minh City is a dazzling metropolis which moves at a merciless pace, as energetic as Hong Kong and as sleepless as New York. The best way to enjoy the chaos is simply to allow yourself to be swept along with it, and immerse yourself in the city and its culture.

It is a place where contrasts sit easily side by side with neither jostling for prime position; you will find vertigo-inducing skyscrapers like the Bitexo Financial Tower, but also sprawling markets like Ben Tanh snaking through alleys. The everyday heartbeat of the city is set to a soundtrack of a thousand motorbikes and mopeds making short work of the streets.

There is plenty to do and see during your time in Ho Chi Minh City on a Phu My cruise. Why not start by exploring the Jade Emperor Pagoda, built in 1909 for the Supreme Taoist God. It is an incredibly and ornately decorated multi-faith temple, brimming with statues, figures and carvings.

Next, head along to Nha Hong Ngon, where you will find some of Vietnam’s best street food in bustling and atmospheric surroundings. Finally, no visit to Ho Chi Minh City is complete without a visit to The History Museum – which houses a diverse spectrum of artefacts which effectively chronicle the history of vibrant Vietnam.

Discovering a beach paradise at Vung Tau

Phu My is also a great base to access Vung Tau, which is around 45 minutes away. When you feel like some headspace after the busy Ho Chi Minch City, Vung Tau provides some idyllic respite. Surrounded by the ocean on three sides and home to impressive colonial buildings, it is the perfect place to reflect and relax.

Set on a gorgeous, arching peninsula, this bright and vibrant beach town is a world away from the smog and heat of the cities. If you can tear yourself away from the beach, there is plenty more to do and see in Vung Tau. Check out the lighthouse, built in 1910 by the French, which offers a unique and panoramic view out over Vung Tau.

There is also the Worldwide Arms Museum – a surprising and fascinating find on the backstreets of Vung Tau. This is where you will find a vast collection of military uniforms and weaponry from the world over. Even if you are not particularly interested in warfare history, there is plenty to see and appreciate here on your cruise to Phu My.

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA

VIEW

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.

Exploring

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.

Shopping

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:

  • World Voyages
  • Norwegian Fjords and Iceland
  • British Isles
  • Iberia, Atlantic Coast, and Canary Islands
  • Mediterranean
  • Short Cruises
  • Grand Voyages

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.
