A rare opportunity will arise next year to enjoy pure luxury at a keen price on a cruise that uses all three Cunard Queens. These magnificent ships are Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2.
This very special fly-triple-cruise-stay holiday from Worldwide Cruise Centres (worldwidecruisecentres.com.au) is named, appropriately ‘Triple Queen Triumph’.
In a dramatic gesture, hundreds of dollars have been lopped off the price.
‘Triple Queen Triumph’ starts with a flight from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide or Perth, to Venice for a night’s stay. The holiday explores Scandinavia and the Mediterranean, visiting European ports and cities such as Reykjavik, Dublin, Naples, Barcelona and lavish Monte Carlo. It takes in a transatlantic voyage, along with hotel stays in Venice, Rome, London, New York and Honolulu.
‘Triple Queen Triumph’ lasts over six weeks – 45 nights if you take it from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane and 46 nights if you start from Adelaide or Perth. It’s filled with great destinations and memorable cruising.
The cruises are:
- A 14-night cruise from Venice to Rome aboard Cunard’s Queen Victoria, visiting Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Corfu, Spain, Corsica and Monaco.
- A 14-night round-trip from Southampton, England, aboard Queen Elizabeth, visiting highlights of Norway, Iceland and Ireland.
- A grand seven-night transatlantic ocean liner voyage from Southampton to New York aboard Cunard’s flagship Queen Mary 2, a majestic luxury liner.
The three cruises include all main meals (except specialty restaurants) as well as substantial bonuses in the form of free onboard credit.
‘Triple Queen Triumph’ includes flights from Australia to Venice, from Rome to London, and flights back to Australia from New York, via Honolulu.

A couple travelling together in a suite can save A$3140 over the previous price.
From other cities, new prices are: Melbourne A$13,819; Adelaide A$13,899; Perth $14,089 (note, from Perth and Adelaide the holiday is one day longer, so 46 nights.)

‘Triple Queen Triumph’ begins with a flight from Australia to Venice on 28 July 2016, for a night in the Concordia Hotel Venice. This must be the perfect Venice location – right on St Mark’s Square. What a place to wake up!
After breakfast at the hotel, board Queen Victoria for a 14-night cruise to Rome.
Ports of call are fabulous – some famous, others just as charming but less well-known. You’ll spend a day in Croatia’s Zadar, with Roman ruins and little cafés; and visit Kotor in Montenegro, one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the Adriatic. Another day is spent in fabulous Corfu.
The cruise will take you through the Messina Strait to Naples; then Rome for a day and to vibrant Barcelona. On to Ajaccio in Corsica, town of Napoleon’s birth; opulent Monte Carlo on the Riviera and Livorno on the Tyrrhenian Sea, gateway to Florence and Pisa.
Disembarking in Rome, the centrally located Augusta Lucilla Palace Hotel provides an ideal location from which to explore the Eternal City.
After two nights in Rome, jet to London for a night in a four-star hotel before boarding Queen Elizabeth in Southampton. The 14-night Queen Elizabeth cruise heads to Geiranger at the head of majestic Geiranger Fjord. Pristine Icelandic scenery in Akureyri and Isafjordur leads to Reykjavik, Iceland’s biggest city. Two days in port here gives time to explore the world’s most northerly capital.
Next port is Dublin, founded by Vikings and known for good cheer, before disembarking in Southampton. Two nights in a four-star hotel London follow; time to shop, visit the galleries and parks and enjoy Britain’s capital in summertime.
On the final cruise, Queen Mary takes you in style across the Atlantic to New York City. See the top Big Apple sights and browse SoHo before jetting to Honolulu for two nights at the Modern Honolulu Hotel, just steps from Waikiki’s hottest surf spots, beautiful beaches and indulgent shopping.
After all that, your holiday of a lifetime is about to end with a flight back home to Australia.
