Cunard Unveils 35 Maiden Calls in New 2016 World Voyage Program

Cunard has announced details of its 2016 world voyages, with its three Queens offering itineraries packed with maiden calls and exotic destinations as they explore the globe.

On sale from 7pm on September 10, the program will see the three Cunard Queens make history by departing Southampton on the same day – January 10, 2016 – then returning together on May 10, 2016, after completing their world voyages.

Between them, the ships will visit 92 ports across 49 countries and make 35 maiden ship calls as flagship Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria complete world circumnavigations and their younger sister Queen Elizabeth sails on an exotic East-West world voyage.

Queen Victoria’s world voyage will visit 23 countries and feature a memorable transit of the Panama Call before she heads south to New Zealand. After calls to Auckland and Akaroa and scenic cruising through the South Island’s Fiordland, Queen Victoria will sail to Australia to undertake her first roundtrip cruise from Sydney.

The eight-night voyage will cruise from Sydney to Hobart and Melbourne and will also feature Cunard’s maiden call to South Australia’s stunning Kangaroo Island, often referred to as Australia’s Galapagos, before returning to Sydney. New Zealanders will be able to sail from Auckland on Queen Victoria on February 23, 2016 and explore the South Island before enjoying the historic roundtrip cruise from Sydney, with the 14-night voyage priced from NZ$ 6439* per person double occupancy in a balcony stateroom.

Travellers can also opt for a longer 35-night cruise from Auckland to Hong Kong on Queen Victoria, including the southern Australia voyage and visits to Bali, Brunei and Vietnam, with fares priced from NZ$15,719 per person double occupancy in a balcony stateroom.

Meanwhile, Queen Mary 2 will make history on her world voyage with her first visits to 11 ports including calls to tropical Papeete and Moorea in Tahiti and mystical Halong Bay in Vietnam.

Her journey will bring her to New Zealand with visits to the Bay of Islands, Auckland and Wellington before heading to Australia and north to Hong Kong. Fares start from NZ$11,269* per person double occupancy in a balcony stateroom for Queen Mary 2’s 25-night cruise to Hong Kong departing Auckland on March 4, 2016.

Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth’s voyage will include a 20-night roundtrip cruise from Hong Kong through Asia. Departing March 10, 2016, the cruise will visit 10 exotic destinations including Shanghai, South Korea and Taiwan as well as six ports in Japan during the nation’s Cherry Blossom season. Fares start from NZ$9199* per person double occupancy in a balcony stateroom.
