Southampton - Embark Queen Elizabeth
Embark the regal Queen Elizabeth, one of the finest cruise liners sailing the five oceans and a ship that offers a little of the finer things in life to all passengers who sail with her. Enjoy Cunard’s spectacular heritage, sense of occasion and huge array of activities, including ballroom-dancing, lawn bowls and afternoon tea in the Garden Lounge.
The newest liner of the Cunard fleet; her youth is evident in her light and chic décor with Art-Deco inspired interiors, glittering chandeliers, cream and chocolate marble and polished dark wood. Unlike other cruise liners who dazzle with larger than life innovations like climbing walls, 4D cinemas and robot bartenders, on Queen Elizabeth you’ll find quintessential old-fashioned traditions like afternoon-tea, ballroom dancing and lawn games.
The pint-sized city of Lisbon is set across seven hills and effortlessly blends traditional and contemporary culture. Get lost in the narrow cobbled alleyways of the Alfama district with its colourful buildings and beautiful views. Or explore further afield – there are fantastic beaches within easy reach - thanks to the trams that criss-cross this charming city.
Queen Elizabeth offers an array of elegant bars and lounges to suit every mood – during the day, sip coffee and nibble on croissants in Café Carinthia; enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the Midships Bar; toast friends in the Champagne Bar; and dance the night away in the Yacht Club.

A relaxing few days at sea gives you ample opportunity to experience all that your ship has to offer. There are so many activities to choose from; enjoy afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters, watch extravagant stage shows in opulent theatre surroundings and then dance the night away in the grand ballroom.
Walvis Bay is a relaxed harbour town on Namibia’s harsh Atlantic Coast. It’s protected from the elements by Pelican Point, a long sand spit that also shields a lagoon which is a haven for wildlife.

Indulge in the sumptuous spa, experience Cunard’s luxurious and refined service at afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters, catch a show in the Royal Court Theatre or dance the night away in the magnificent surroundings of the Queens Ballroom – it’s all up to you.
