Setting off from Southampton on a World Voyage at the start of the year has become one of Cunard’s traditions, and one that remains as exciting as ever! A Cunard World Voyage represents one of life’s great travel adventures – the magic of travelling between the world’s iconic destinations on board some of the world’s most luxurious ships is hard to beat.
Two of Cunard’s ships – Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria are currently sailing on their world voyages – celebrating 100 years of the World Voyage by Cunard.
Post-pandemic demand has been strong for once-in-a-lifetime voyages, with travellers wanting to explore unique and inspiring destinations around the world. Confirmation of this trend is that Queen Mary 2 has 925 guests sailing on her full world voyage – making for an extra special atmosphere onboard with Cunard pulling out all the stops to celebrate this milestone voyage!

You can also book shorter cruises with the World Voyage

Cunard’s World Voyages are divided into shorter cruises lasting between 7 and 100 nights. You can join a World Voyage at a number of ports throughout the voyage. This means you set sail on a World Voyage on a date that suits you, and in a specific area only.
The history and intrigue of the Cunard World Voyage
Cunard were the first to sail around the world. Laconia was the first ship to complete a continuous circumnavigation of the globe carrying fare-paying passengers in 1922-23, and since then, Cunard has undertaken more world voyages than any other passenger line and has been refining the experience ever since.
The Cunard Experience
While an increasing number of cruise lines now sail around the world, Cunard’s classic liners are specifically designed for the ocean cruise experience. One of the reasons that Cunard’s classic ships are so well suited to longer cruises is the extra space onboard allowing passengers unparalleled comfort, luxury and style.
Cunard’s ships offer the ideal blend of classic and contemporary with an overall feeling of elegance.
There is nothing quite like that feeling when you discover a new destination and you step ashore for the first time. Sail on Cunard and arrive with a new perspective as you approach by sea before
exploring some of the greatest destinations and cultures on earth.
Is there any finer way to appreciate the pleasures of international travel than on a Cunard World Voyage?
It’s a lifestyle choice that offers you with the opportunity to explore everything from remote villages to bustling metropolises over the course of a few weeks, or more than three months, all from the comfort of your ship.
