Grand Australian Circumnavigation.from $6,849.00pp
This circumnavigation of Australia from Sydney reveals a kaleidoscope of natural wonders. From the unblemished white sands of Airlie Beach and Port Douglas, to the wild coast of Kangaroo Island.
Embark Queen Elizabeth and immerse yourself in her evocative art deco elegance. The newest Queen exudes style and has an especially refined feel.
Your table is reserved for breakfast, lunch and dinner in one of the sophisticated main restaurants aboard. Each is the home of deliciously imaginative menus, exceptional wines and impeccable service. This evening you may start with such delicacies as Salmon Gravlax with Poached Quail’s Egg or a Croquette of Suckling Pig. For your entrée, you might be in the mood for Dover Sole Meunière or a Chateaubriand, perhaps rounded off with a rich Bitter Chocolate Soufflé or a lighter Mango Panna Cotta.
Every evening during your cruise promises a stellar array of entertainment choices. So, whether you’re in the mood for music, dance performances or even magic shows, prepare to settle into your seat. Watch the resident Royal Cunard Singers & Dancers stage dazzling West End style productions or abridged Shakespeare performances. We’ve also hand-picked a talented line-up of vocalists and instrumentalists, aerial performers and illusionists, stand-up comedians and variety entertainers.
Live music will be an unmistakable signature of every moment on your ship. Our accomplished resident musicians will create an enticing ambience, during relaxing moments and on grand social occasions. The string trio provides a warm welcome on board and melodic accompaniment to Afternoon Tea. The resident pianist sets an elegant tone to evening dinner drinks in the Commodore Club, and you’ll also find harpists and contemporary bands in public rooms and lounges throughout the ship.
Children of all ages are welcome on our ships, and our dedicated clubs offer activities and entertainment. These include arts and crafts, sporting activities, play areas, computer games and much more. They can make friends with other children at The Play Zone, for two- to seven-year-olds, and The Zone which is ideal for eight- to 17-year-olds. Our youth staff will supervise your children, organise events, activities and competitions, and even ‘excursions’ to the theatre or cinema on board.
Traditional Afternoon Tea.
If anything perfectly encapsulates Cunard’s service and sense of occasion, it is our prized daily ritual: Afternoon Tea, served by white-gloved waiters from 3.30 to 4.30pm every day in the Queens Room. Indulgent finger sandwiches, scones and pastries accompany Twinings fine leaf teas, as the orchestra provides a melodic backdrop. Our Grills guests may also retreat to the more intimate Princess Grill restaurant, while a more casual interpretation awaits in the Lido or King’s Court.
The true romance of ocean travel is never more alive than on our Gala Evenings. You’ll feel a palpable sense of occasion in the air as guests emerge from their staterooms in their finest eveningwear, beautifully attired in tuxedos and ball gowns, like a scene from a Hollywood movie.
There are many ways to keep yourself active on our ships. A few laps of the Promenade Deck and the games of shuffleboard and deck quoits have been pastimes for almost as long as we have been sailing. You’ll find pursuits like table tennis, paddle tennis, golf putting and swimming too. For armchair sports fans, Sport24 offers coverage of major events including the Premier League, Wimbledon, Formula 1, the Ryder Cup and more, shown in certain bars and lounges, and all staterooms and suites.
