What You’ll Love…

The Experiences - Unspoilt island paradises, stunning reefs and white sandy beaches

Secluded and tranquil, Papua New Guinea is the fantasy of island hoppers, a serene oasis that perfectly fuses white sand, turquoise waters and green trees without modern influence. Before getting lost in the dizzying beauty of these hidden Edens, your cruise will leave from Sydney’s lively Circular Quay, home to the iconic Sydney Harbour and The Rocks, before stopping for a visit in Brisbane.

Elegant Georgian buildings of native sandstone, sub-tropical beaches, towers of sleek glass and alfresco-living year-round awaits you in Brisbane. A foodie city on the rise, you could venture out to Eagle Street Pier, shop on James Street — loaded with high-class restaurants and fashion boutiques — or explore vibrant South Bank, perfectly located in the city centre with a beach, garden, restaurants, a theatre and the Brisbane Eye.

Nestled within the lush forested foothills of the Owen Stanley Range, unearth the tiny atolls, coral reefs, swaying palms, white beaches and friendly locals of Alotau. Known for the historic 1942 WWII battles fought here between Japanese and Australian forces, this Papua New Guinea haven is worth exploring for its picturesque hidden coves, the scattered islands of Milne Bay and the bay’s northern shore.

Dive into the culture and natural splendour of the largest of the Trobriand’s Islands, Kiriwina, where you can gain a fascinating glimpse into local culture where a paramount chief and a rainmaker still rule the day and yams still hold currency.

Soak up the surreal atmosphere and untouched beauty of Rabaul, spectacularly nestled between two volcanoes, Vulcan and Tavurvur, and once draped in ash from volcanic explosions in 1994 and again in 2014. Explore the dusting of 21 Conflict Islands found off the east coast, home to one of the most thriving reef systems in the world, a snorkeller's paradise. With only 30-people living here permanently, it’s almost as untouched as you can get.

Finally, explore your gateway to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and majestic Daintree Rainforest with a port stop in laid-back Cairns. A mecca for divers, don’t miss the opportunity to unearth the Great Barrier Reef’s spectacular underwater playground home to thousands of marine animals, colourful fish and corals.

The Ship - Immerse yourself in Art Deco elegance

The Queen Elizabeth invites you to an uncrowded oasis where spacious decks set the perfect backdrop for a flawless Cunard experience. Immerse yourself in endless entertainment, luxurious accommodation, Art Deco features, gleaming chandeliers, and an array of dining choices. Enjoy inclusive entertainment onboard with croquet on the Games Deck, stunning entertainment in the Royal Court Theatre or relax in the elegant conservatory.

The Food - Inclusive onboard dining

Awaken your tastebuds as you savour imaginative menus paired with impeccable service onboard with inclusive main dining (breakfast, lunch and dinner). You could start evenings with an entrée of Dover Sole Meunière or a Chateaubriand, followed by Salmon Gravlax with Poached Quail’s Egg or Croquette of Suckling Pigg and finished off with a rich Bitter Chocolate Soufflé.

You’ll also enjoy an hour devoted to afternoon tea, where white-gloved waiters serve finger sandwiches, scones and pastries while an orchestra sets the mood from 3:30pm to 4:30 daily.

The Cabin - A private retreat with all of the mod-cons expected from a Cunard Ship

Step into a world of private elegance as you open the door to your Britannia Inside Cabin, welcoming you with a bottle of sparkling wine, a plush king-sized bed or single bed, a private bathroom with a shower, Penhaligon’s toiletries, plush robes and slippers.

With a nightly turn-down service, a personal steward to keep your cabin sparkling and a ‘goodnight’ chocolate on your pillow, you’ll feel like a royal. Plus you’ll enjoy all of the mod-cons you would expect on a Cunard ship, including a satellite TV, tea and coffee facilities, a mini-bar, complimentary room service 24-hours per day and a writing desk with a lounge area.

Ocean Upgrade: Wake up to a new view each day when you upgrade to an elegant Britannia Oceanview Cabin with all of the luxuries of the Inside Cabin.

Balcony Upgrade: Walk out onto your private balcony and enjoy a glimpse of your next island paradise, the perfect place to crack open your welcome bottle of sparkling wine.
