Cunard announces debut sailings to Australia and New Zealand for Queen Anne

Cunard’s Queen Anne will sail her first itineraries to Australia and New Zealand in 2025 calling in at a number of east coast ports along the way.

Cunard’s latest programme will include a number of firsts for its newest ship Queen Anne in January 2025, embarking on her first-ever World Voyage.

Guests can experience the trip of a lifetime, spending 107 nights on board, visiting more than 30 ports in five continents. Nine overnight calls are also included, in ports such as San Francisco, Honolulu and Singapore, offering guests further opportunities to explore these destinations.

From Honolulu, Queen Anne will make her way to Auckland via Samoa and Tonga, before crossing to Sydney and sail along Australia’s magnificent east coast to Hong Kong with maiden calls in Brisbane, the Whitsunday Islands, Cairns and Darwin.

“We’re so excited to share our newest programme featuring some fantastic itineraries and – with over 130 to choose from – you’ll certainly be spoiled for choice,” president, Carnival UK, Sture Myrmell, said.

“Whether you want to wander Europe’s historic streets, channel your adventurous side trying street food across Asia, explore the magic of Australia’s coastline or savour the sunsets in Hawaii, Cunard has a voyage for you.”

“Better still, when you’re not off exploring a new destination, you can relax in luxury on board, enjoy fascinating Insight talks, innovative theatre and a variety of fine dining options.

“However you choose to spend your time, you can savour every destination both from aboard and spending time exploring ashore.”

Between January and May 2025, the fleet’s flagship Queen Mary 2 will combine her unique Transatlantic Crossings with visits to multiple sun-kissed destinations across Europe and the Americas, while Queen Victoria embarks on an incredible 78-night South American adventure from Southampton to the warm shores of Brazil, Chile, and Ecuador (V503B).

Cunard is also now offering a trip of a lifetime across all four Queens, guests can join an extraordinary 38-night adventure starting in the European summer with a voyage around the Mediterranean on board Queen Victoria, then embarking on Cunard’s new ship I for a voyage from Rome to Southampton before taking an iconic Transatlantic Crossing on Cunard’s flagship Queen Mary 2. After sailing into New York as dawn breaks, guests will then fly to Vancouver to finish the final leg of the Four Queens Adventure by exploring glaciers, wildlife and the jaw dropping terrains of Alaska, with 10 nights on Queen Elizabeth.
