42 Night World Cruise sector sailing from Southampton to Sydney aboard Queen Mary 2.
Seven sensational stops on this Grand Voyage bring you the chance to join a Big Five safari tour, sip cocktails on the sand in Mauritius, and fulfil a lifelong dream as Sydney Harbour slips into view.
Highlights of this cruise:
The ideal start or ending point for a memorable voyage, the United Kingdom's premier passenger port and sprawling South Coast city, Southampton, was home to iconic transatlantic liners of yesteryear.
Its great location means you’ve access to a range of historic sites, charming villages and national landmarks, and the great metropolis of London with all to see and do there.
Cape Town isn’t just one of the most beautiful cities in the world – it’s also circled by magnificent beaches, rugged mountains and idyllic vineyards. All located on the stunning shores of Table Bay.
There are so many ways to remember Cape Town. Take a cable car trip up Table Mountain, a poignant tour of World Heritage Site Robben Island or a cultural trip to Stellenbosch.
Durban is an attractive city, whose long beach front and glass buildings look out onto the Indian Ocean. Inland, spectacular landscapes and Africa’s unique wildlife are waiting to captivate you.
Durban is a wonderfully multicultural gem of a city, which is home to the largest Indian population outside of India. The Victoria Street Market feels like its epicenter. Mostly just known as ‘Old Vic,’ its colourfully painted stalls are piled with red and yellow spices, while incense adds a heady fragrance to the air. You’ll no doubt find various food outlets offering ‘bunnychow,’ half a loaf of bread hollowed out and filled with curry.
Perth’s spectacular growth in recent times makes the old historic port of Fremantle seem tiny in comparison. Eighty per cent of Western Australia’s population lives in or around this sunny metropolis.
Connoisseurs of New World wines are in luck. Around a third of all Australia's supply is produced an hour or less from church-sprinkled Adelaide, a legacy of German settlers in the early 1800. Cheers!
The gorgeous Magill Estate is perhaps the best known of these wonderful vineyards. It’s a wonderful spot for a first-class tasting experience in the rolling South Australian countryside.
Originally part of New South Wales, Victoria became a colony in its own right in 1851. The discovery of gold and the development of agriculture launched Melbourne’s rise to prominence and prosperity.
Flower gardens and graceful, tree-lined boulevards give Melbourne its refined air, and it is considered the hub of Australia’s cultural, intellectual and financial life. Certainly by Melbournians.
The stunning harbour city, Sydney, is Australia’s oldest and largest urban centre. Its fascinating modern history began in the year 1788 with the arrival of the ‘First Fleet’ of 760 British convicts.
Gold mining and sheep breeding propelled Sydney’s development, and today it’s the largest port in the entire South Pacific. Mark Twain called it “the wonder of the world”.
