Cunard

No other shipping line radiates the maritime elegance and illustrious heritage of Cunard. From the moment you step aboard one of its ships, you’ll be struck by the exquisite attention to detail. Polished brass fittings, Art Décor interiors and white-gloved waiters – all this and more creates the ambience of a bygone age. And with a high staff-to-passenger ratio, you’ll find yourself well attended to, from morning till night.

DAY 1 | 13 Feb 2022
Melbourne - Hotel Stay

Melbourne, Australia’s most populous city after Sydney, is famous for its markets, where you’ll find everything from local produce to arts and crafts and vintage fashion. The inner city’s leafy areas have a European feel, alongside New York-style 1950s art deco high-rises. The National Gallery of Victoria is the country’s oldest and largest public art museum, but you don’t need to go far to see art in this vibrant city because its streets, arcades and bustling laneways are full of it.

DAY 2 | 14 Feb 2022
Melbourne - Embark Queen Elizabeth

Today you’ll embark Queen Elizabeth, a ship that emulates Cunard’s refined approach to sailing. Decked out in an art deco style throughout, it evokes a 1930s elegance, with a croquet lawn on the games deck and gleaming chandeliers fit for a state ballroom. You could dance the night away at a themed ball in the Queens Room, enjoy afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters or watch a polished production in the Royal Court Theatre. You’ll have three main gourmet restaurants to choose from, promising gastronomic delights to suit all tastes.

DAY 3 - 4 | 15 - 16 Feb 2022
At Sea

Cunard prides itself on standards of service that go above and beyond, exceeding the expectations of their guests. From the warm smile that welcomes you on board, to round the clock room service and the white-gloved hand that serves traditional afternoon tea. Cunard’s White Star Service is the attention to the finest detail.

South Island, New Zealand
DAY 5 | 17 Feb 2022
Fiordland National Park (Scenic Cruising)

Sail away into a dreamlike world as today you’ll cruise through Fiordland National Park, a nature haven where glacier-cut mountains and mirror-smooth lakes emanate serenity. In this important bird habitat, you could spot a Fiordland penguin or two as you sail past breathtaking scenery. Watch waterfalls cascade down craggy cliffs, wispy clouds caress mountain peaks and maybe, if you’re lucky, dolphin fins crest glassy water.

DAY 6 | 18 Feb 2022
Dunedin

Once a Scottish settlement, Dunedin retains strong links to Scotland even today and has its own tartan. Lanarch Castle, built by a nineteenth century local businessmen with Scottish roots, is billed as New Zealand’s only castle and the building and its gardens are now open to the public. With quaint harbourside villages, endless green hills and low-rise buildings, Dunedin has a laidback, understated atmosphere.

DAY 7 | 19 Feb 2022
Christchurch

Although it’s the largest city in New Zealand’s South Island, Christchurch is still small enough to be explored on foot. Perhaps the best way of seeing this compact city is on the hop-on, hop-off tram. There are 17 stops, which include punting on the River Avon, which runs through the heart of the city. However, to really soak up the spectacular surroundings of the city, take the Christchurch Gondola - a scenic cable-car ride.

The most famous landmark in Wellington.
DAY 8 | 20 Feb 2022
Wellington

Curving protectively around its harbour with a white lighthouse guarding the bay in the distance, New Zealand’s compact capital is a charming city to visit. Head to one of its many museums and art galleries, sample some of the city’s celebrated craft beers or embark on the historical Wellington Cable Car, an attraction widely recognised as a symbol of the city. Taking five minutes to reach the top, you’ll roll through the landscapes and capture fantastic views of the ocean and sprawling city below.

DAY 9 | 21 Feb 2022
Napier

Rebuilt following an earthquake in 1931, Napier is known as Art Deco City and is nestled between the ocean and deep-creased verdant hills. Take a walk around the city centre to experience the world’s most comprehensive collection of art deco buildings with their geometric shapes and bold designs. Napier is also home to some of New Zealand’s oldest wineries, including the Mission Estate Winery, producing a wide range of award-winning wines.

DAY 10 | 22 Feb 2022
At Sea

You’ll never tire of the menu options at the ship’s myriad dining options. From international dishes at the intimate Britannia Restaurant, the main dining room, to classic British fare at the Red Lion pub, as well as pizza and pasta at the Lido buffet, you’ll be constantly well-fed. For a few post-dinner drinks, you could head to Gin & Fizz for a glass of chilled Prosecco or sip a cognac at Churchill’s cigar lounge.

DAY 11 | 23 Feb 2022
Auckland

The lush greenery of Auckland’s rolling hills are punctuated by the eyewatering skyline of the city’s centre, offering the fascinating contrasts of modern architecture meets natural landscape. Escape to Mount Eden where you’ll find the volcanic crater of Maungawhau and savour beguiling views across the city and both harbours, climb One Tree Hill for panoramic views and explore the surrounding Cornwall Park, or pay a visit to the imposing Auckland Museum, a neoclassical temple that dominates the city skyline.

Melbourne - Disembark Queen Elizabeth & Fly Home

Cruise complete, today you’ll disembark back in Melbourne and make your way to the airport for your flight home.

Welcome aboard the Queen Elizabeth

Cunard has maintained all the refined styling, amenities and service associated with the Golden Era of cruise sailing and added modern facilities, leisure and entertainment opportunities. Stunning accommodation and the most exceptional fine dining you’ll ever experience at sea are highlights of the glorious Queen Elizabeth cruise ship. Dance in the grand ballroom, enjoy afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters, watch extravagant stage shows in opulent theatre surroundings or simply relax and revitalise beside one of the two lovely pool areas.
