The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the World’ invite you to enjoy an unparalleled cruise experience. Cunard Line has played a defining role in shaping the cruise industry for over 175 years, its iconic ships serving as the absolute definition of sophisticated ocean cruise travel. On board the legendary vessels of yesteryear and the modern day luxurious Cunard Queens, Cunard has carried passengers across the oceans to all four corners of the globe.
The fabled ships of the Cunard fleet provide the most luxurious of classic cruising experiences. Enjoy a champagne toast, waltz the night away in the same grand ballroom where Rita Hayworth and Ginger Rogers danced in years gone by, savour a feast of flavours in exquisite fine dining rooms, all whilst being transported to some of the world’s most enticing destinations.
Cunard Line is the perfect option for travellers who prefer to keep their distance from the hustle and bustle of today’s busy airports and many of the itineraries offered by the cruise line sail roundtrip from Southampton.
When you cruise from Southampton, your holiday begins the very moment you step foot on board. You needn’t choose between those two beautiful outfits or worry about the weight of your tuxedo; luggage allowances don’t exist when sailing from the UK, so you can pack without restriction. Your luggage will be taken from you on arrival and delivered directly to your stateroom, leaving you free to toast the beginning of an exciting journey and join in the Cunard Line’s notorious celebratory sail away festivities.
Sailing from the UK with Cunard Line opens up a whole world of itineraries, from the vibrant Mediterranean, to the breathtaking Norwegian Fjords and even the exotic islands of the Caribbean.
Northern Europe cruises take in an array of cultural attractions, from UNESCO World Heritage sites to bustling cities and spectacular scenery. Whether you long to see the amazing city skylines of the Baltic Capitals or the crashing waterfalls and imposing glaciers of the Norwegian Fjords, Cunard has the perfect cruise for you.
Mediterranean itineraries visit both eastern and western points of call. Visit the vibrant ports of Lisbon and Barcelona, immerse yourself in the history of Rome and Dubrovnik, and enjoy an overnight stay in the glamorous port of St Tropez.
As well as destinations further afield, Cunard Line also offers short cruise breaks, with durations spanning between two and five nights. Fill a long weekend or mini-break with the sights of Bruges, Elsinore, Le Havre (Paris) and Hamburg. It’s the perfect introduction to Cunard’s classic cruising style.
Fly cruises see you immediately immersed in the heart of the Mediterranean from the very moment you step off the plane. Choose whether you would like your voyage to commence in Rome, Athens, Venice or Istanbul, before selecting an itinerary that takes in all of the Mediterranean destinations you’ve been longing to visit. We’ll take care of your flight arrangements, so you can spend your time on better things, like deciding which sites you’ll visit first.
During the peak Mediterranean season, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria will visit many exciting and glamorous ports, with 7, 14 or 21 night durations letting you experience all the Mediterranean has to offer.
Such destinations as Monte Carlo, Santorini, Rome and Athens are eternally popular with visitors to the Mediterranean, whilst more recent port additions to fly cruise itineraries include Rapallo, Zadar and Trieste.
