Cunard Summer 2018 Launch!
Memorable adventures await with Cunards' new 2018 cruises. Temptation may arrive in the form of Transatlantic Crossings, US and Canada discoveries, Norway’s fjords, the Baltic Sea and St Petersburg, or a European short break. The Mediterranean is yours to explore, whether from Southampton or a fly-cruise, and you could also savour the sun-kissed Caribbean and Canary Islands.
So.. What's new for Cunard in 2018?
Cunards' ships will make over 20 maiden visits in 2018:
Bodo; A visit to Bodo takes you into Europe’s northern extremes, as it occupies a peninsula just inside the Arctic Circle.
Donegal; Killybegs is a natural deep-water harbour in County Donegal in Ireland.
Gijon; The northern Spanish city has looked out onto the Bay of Biscay since ancient times.
Haugesund; on Norway’s southwest shore, is graced with majestic vistas all around.
Hvar; one of the best-known Croatian islands and with good reason.
Klaipeda; Lithuania’s third largest city has stood for almost 800 years.
La Rochelle; stands at around the mid-point of France’s western coast.
Narvik; Considering its position 220km inside the Arctic Circle, Narvik is surprisingly mild, and this climate enabled its growth as an ice-free port for exporting iron ore.
Port Mahon; One of the four main Balearics, Menorca has been inhabited since at least 2000BC, and one of its great intrigues are the 35 ancient monolithic stones scattered over the island.
Portoroz; Here on Slovenia’s short coastline, Portoroz sits among mountainous backdrops and clear Adriatic waters.
Portree; The village of Portree nestles among soaring hills on the east side of Skye, often known as the ‘Misty Isle.’
Propriano; on the southwest shore of Corsica, has an attractive centre of sand-coloured buildings with terracotta roofs, whose harbour shelters modest fishing boats and exclusive yachts.
Puerto del Rosario; is the capital of Fuerteventura, the second largest of the Canary Islands and a windsurfer’s paradise.
Riga; Sitting on the Baltic Sea at the mouth of the River Daugava, Riga is the enchanting capital of Latvia.
Rijeka; northern Croatia, the octagonal church of St Vitus Cathedral, the medieval Trsat lookout and a Roman arch are just a few of the highlights.
Rockland; Standing on the rugged Maine coast, Rockland is small town with a red-brick charm and a harbour filled with traditional Windjammer sailing boats.
Sept-Illes; stands on the Gulf of St Lawrence, where the legacy of the Innu people lives on in a setting of tranquil beauty.
Taormina; occupies a charming clifftop setting on the beautiful island of Sicily.
Visby; the largest town on the Swedish isle of Gotland in the Baltic Sea.
