Cunard occupies a very special place in the hearts of Australian cruise passengers. So, in 2019, Queen Elizabeth sails in local waters for 54 days for Cunard’s first ever homeport season. Then, in late 2019 she returns for a record-breaking 101 day season.
Join Queen Elizabeth as she traverses the shoreline of Australia and New Zealand, calling in to some of the region’s most beautiful destinations. Ports of call include Tasmania, Kangaroo Island, New Zealand’s North and South Island, all sailing out of Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.
On a luxury ship like Queen Elizabeth, gracing our shores for the next two seasons, you’ll really be able to live the Cunard life.
