Queen Anne’s maiden world voyage

Cunard’s much-awaited brand-new ship, Queen Anne, will finally be making her grand debut in October 2024. After her maiden season exploring the Canary Islands, Norwegian Fjords, Mediterranean, Northern Europe, British Isles and Iceland, Queen Anne will depart on her very first world voyage departing from Southampton on 9 January 2025. 

The whopping 107-night sailing will include port calls in New York, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Seville, Valletta, Manilla, Sydney, San Francisco, and Honolulu among other ports, and even cross the International Date Line before completing her itinerary back at Southampton. As part of the sailing, Queen Anne will make overnight port calls in incredible cities and towns all over the world, such as San Francisco, Honolulu, Sydney and Singapore. 

There are several fly-cruise, ranging from 60 to 10 nights, options available to join Queen Anne on certain sections of her first World Voyage, such as the 40-night Hong Kong to Southampton leg calling at Dubai, Far East and Mediterranean ports. 

Before this epic voyage, Queen Anne will sail on a quick break from Southampton to Hamburg, on a four-night sailing departing on 5 January 2025. 

Sun, sea and Queen Mary 2

Europe and the Americas will be home for Queen Mary 2 in 2025. Between January and March 2025, the ship will be departing from Southampton on Eastern Caribbean, Canary Islands, and Spain and Portugal itineraries, all returning back to Southampton and ranging from seven to 35 nights. 

March will be a packed month for Queen Mary 2, with back-to-back Transatlantic sailings between Southampton and New York. She will then have a quick seven days in the Norwegian Fjords, departing on 6 April 2025 from Southampton, before leisurely cruising around the Mediterranean in late April. 

Queen Victoria’s South America adventure 

South America will be the focus of eight voyages on Queen Victoria in early 2025, departing from Southampton, Rio de Janeiro and Fort Lauderdale. 

Sailings can range from 17-nights to an unforgettable 78-nights, but no matter which itinerary you choose you can see some of the most beautiful sites and skylines South America has to offer, from the instantly recognisable Christ the Redeemer statue to Cape Horn the most southern point of Chile’s Tierra del Fuego. 

Before setting sail to South America, Queen Victoria will round out 2024 with several short four to five-night breaks to Amsterdam, Bruges, Cherbourg and Hamburg, all departing from Southampton in November and December. 

Alaska and Australia await Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth will be extraordinarily busy traversing both the north and south hemisphere in 2024! From May, she will embark on sensational Japan to Alaska cruises departing from Tokyo, where passengers can experience Japanese food, culture and architecture and Alaska’s awe-inspiring natural sites all in one trip! 

After these voyages, Queen Elizabeth will spend the summer in Alaska, embarking on several 10-night cruises exploring tall glaciers and ice-capped mountains. In the latter half of 2024 and early 2025, Queen Elizabeth will spend her time on several cruises around Australia and New Zealand, calling at iconic ports Melbourne, Sydney, and Auckland.

Voyages will vary from two to 27 nights in length, and will on occasion call at South Pacific and Tasmania ports a little further afield.
