This is your chance to experience the best of what Africa can offer from a guided walk to watch the spectacular Victoria Falls to a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River.

Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 is the most magnificent of all ocean liners, built for regal sailing that harks back to the Golden Era of sailing.

The ship radiates sheer opulence, charm and glamour with multiple dining options served on classic Wedgwood china and Waterford crystal. Enjoy afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters. Dine like a Queen on classic British and French cuisine at Britannia and Grills restaurants, savour the finest premium steaks at The Verandah or taste a range of mouth-watering dishes at Kings Court buffet.

There’s never a dull moment when picking what to do in-between meals. There’s the spectacular show at the planetarium, learn how to fence, play Cunard’s traditional games of shuffleboard and deck quoits or chill out at the Mareel Spa with a self-indulgent massage.  Alternatively you can just curl up in a leather armchair and read a book at the library.

And after a sumptuous dinner, watch a dazzling West End-style of production at the Royal Court Theatre or rock to the pulsating beat of the ship’s sophisticated G32 nightclub or dance away the night away at the glamorous ball in the Queen’s Room.

Learn about Durban’s culture

When Queen Mary 2 calls at Durban, take a gentle stroll along the esplanade at Durban’s Golden Mile stretch of beach or you can soak up the buzz of the city on the lively Florida Road with its café culture and galleries. You can also learn about the Africa’s native Zulu and Afro-Indian heritage as more Indians live in Durham than any other country outside India itself.

When the ship sails into the sparkling waters of Reunion Island between Madagascar and Mauritius, you will be blown away by the sandy beaches, vivid coral reefs and impressive volcanoes. The island blends an interesting fusion of French, Indian, African and Chinese cultures.

At Port Louis, the gateway to idyllic Mauritius you will face amazing white sandy beaches, Mykonos-blue, clear waters and pristine coral reefs. Here you can swim, snorkel amongst multi-coloured fish or simply laze by the beach.

Over the next few days, you will sail the oceans with many activities to distract you from lazing by the Pavillion pool, enjoying the Jacuzzi with a glass of bubbles in hand or practise your golf swings at the nets.

When Queen Mary 2 sails into Fremantle in Western Australia you will disembark for your journey home after an unforgettable and memorable never to be repeated.
