The revered cruise line is now offering round-trip voyages from Asia’s most fascinating destination.
Sailing on a Cunard ship is much more than a luxury cruise, it is a life experience. While the three Queens enjoy a tremendously loyal following of returning guests, now, a whole new wave of discerning travellers will be drawn to this iconic cruise line with the announcement of new voyages from Japan in 2020, joining the already announced 2019 season.
Drawing on its 178-year legacy of luxury ocean cruising, the new round-trip itineraries are predictably spectacular coming with all the stylish enhancements and curated extras sophisticated travellers have come to expect from this iconic fleet that has a guest to staff ratio of 2:1 and more space than other ships their size.
The spectacle of gala balls, celebrated afternoon teas, cocktails and world-class entertainment at sea will now be extended to Japan when Queen Elizabeth enjoys an even longer season in 2020.
And in true Cunard style, expect immersive cultural experiences, expert speakers and performers to richly complement the spectacular journeys.
As a destination, Japan offers so much within a relatively compact footprint, these cruises and carefully crafted shore excursions will be duly diverse offering everything from the magnificence of the Spring cherry blossoms in Hokkaido to bustling Tokyo, gorgeous islands off Okinawa, snowfields, hot springs and jaw-dropping gardens, the breathtaking shrines and temples of Harajuku and Asakusa and the World Heritage-listed wonders of Kyoto.
It’s no wonder Japan is a perennial favourite among Australian travellers.
With 19 different ports visited in Japan across 2019 and 2020, guests can expect to see the very best of this multifaceted island nation. And your excitement starts to build 12 weeks before your departure when you can plan your shore excursions online using Voyage Personaliser.
The incredible on board experience of a Cunard ship is what makes these voyages truly unforgettable.
Apart from the opulent, Art Deco decor and fine dining, the extensive and thoughtful range of activities add an even greater level of enjoyment. How about tango dancing or photography classes, watercolour painting, Martini mixing or even fencing?
At night, the bar is raised even higher when the curtain goes up on the Royal Court Theatre for stunning productions, comedy, magicians and more.
