Cunard celebrated the 100th anniversary of its first round-the-world voyage on January 11 with fireworks and fanfare in Southampton as Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria departed on their round-the-world voyages.

The ships left together on itineraries mirroring many ports of call from those first sailings on ships RMS Laconia and RMS Samaria.   

Cunard says the World Voyages had the highest number of full world guests on record.  

Destinations on Queen Mary 2’s 102-night Centenary World Voyage will include Colombo, Singapore and Hong Kong, emulating RMS Samaria’s 1923 world sailing.

The voyage also includes overnight stops in Dubai, Sydney and Cape Town as it travels from Southampton through Asia, Australia and South Africa. 

Queen Victoria’s 101-night Centenary World Voyage will visit RMS Laconia’s 1922 ports calls with stops in Hong Kong, New York, Singapore, Cabo San Lucas, Colombo, San Francisco, Hilo, Honolulu, Manila and Naples as well as visiting Aruba, Jordan, Tonga and a full transit of the Panama Canal. 

Guests onboard are promised a programme of exclusive events and parties, both ashore and on board, with entertainment and dining reflecting each region of the world visited.
