Cunard Launches New 2024 Event Voyages Programme

Cunard has announced the return of its renowned Event Voyages programme for 2024, featuring some of the greatest talents in gastronomy, art and entertainment.

The seven newly launched themed voyages will take place onboard both Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth. Cunard’s flagship, Queen Mary 2, will host four of these, offering guests an unmatched experience to cross the Atlantic in style. A further three of the Event Voyages will take place onboard Queen Elizabeth as she navigates Australia and Japan in early 2024.

 “Cunard’s Event Voyages offer far more than just stand out performances. Each is expertly curated to offer our guests unique opportunities to immerse themselves into theme or occasion, meeting and hearing from world-renowned leaders in their fields, many with interactive workshops and a programme of activities and performances to choose from throughout the day and evening.  And of course, all offered with the luxurious backdrops of the Cunard Queens and all while enjoying the signature touches you can always look forward to with Cunard.”

Angus Struthers, Acting Senior Vice President, Cunard

Back by popular demand

Returning in June is ‘London Theatre at Sea’, an eight-night Eastbound Transatlantic Crossing featuring all things musical theatre- in partnership with the Olivier Awards. On this unique sailing, guests can enjoy immersive acting workshops, fascinating behind-the-scenes talks, and award-winning performances, curated by Julian Bird OBE.

Also making a re-appearance to Cunard’s 2024 Event Voyage itineraries in November is ‘Literature at Sea’, where book worms can absorb themselves in seven whole days of inspiring literary events during a Westbound Transatlantic Crossing. The sailing is curated by the programming team of The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, and will feature over 20 acclaimed authors: with past headliners including Ian Rankin; Victoria Hislop; and Simon Armitage.

New for 2024

As well as returning Cunard favourites, the 2024 Event Voyages programme will also see some new additions.

In August, Queen Mary 2 will embark on her 400th Transatlantic Crossing from New York to Southampton, giving guests on this cruise the unique chance to celebrate history in the making.

Furthermore, next year marks the 15th anniversary of Cunard’s spectacular National Symphony Orchestra voyages where, by day, guests can rehearse with the choir, and enjoy classical concerts in the Royal Court Theatre by night. This unique sailing will be a nine-night Eastbound Transatlantic crossing via Newport and Boston in October.

To start 2024 off with a bang, Queen Elizabeth will host the first-of-its-kind Sporting Greats & Wellness Voyage in January. This thrilling voyage offers sports fanatics the chance to sail with some of Australia’s most iconic sporting stars: including cricketer Brett Lee, and golfer Karrie Webb.

Sticking with an Australian theme, Queen Elizabeth will also host The Great Australian Culinary Voyage in January, which promises to be an unforgettable insight into the world of food and wine. On this itinerary, special guest and award-winning chef, Karen Martini, will take over The Steakhouse at The Verandah.

In May, the extraordinary Big Band Ball voyage will see music and dance lovers gather to celebrate the glorious Swing era, in between exploring Japanese ports on this nine-night circumnavigation. Internationally acclaimed vocalist, pianist, and songwriter, Joe Stilgoe, will feature as one of the special guests on this exclusive sailing.

For all sailings, guests should be aware that speakers and activities are subject to change, and some activities may incur an additional fee.
