Embark on a Celestial Voyage on a Solar Eclipse Cruise with Cunard
Get ready to witness a celestial spectacle like no other with Cunard's special 2026 itineraries featuring the mesmerising total solar eclipse.

Get ready to witness a celestial spectacle like no other with Cunard's special 2026 itineraries featuring the mesmerising total solar eclipse. Mark your calendars for August 12, 2026, when parts of North America and Europe will be treated to this rare phenomenon. Picture the summer sun reaching its zenith, only to be momentarily obscured by the moon's graceful dance across its path, casting a surreal twilight over the land.

Cunard, renowned for its luxurious voyages, presents three exquisite ships strategically positioned along the eclipse pathway to offer guests an unparalleled viewing experience, weather permitting, of course.

Norway and Iceland Expedition with Queen Mary 2

Embark on a 14-night adventure aboard Cunard's flagship, Queen Mary 2, as she sets sail northward to explore the stunning fjords of Norway before venturing across the North Sea to Iceland. Departing on August 4, 2026, guests will revel in the tranquility of the Norwegian landscapes before immersing themselves in the vibrant culture of Reykjavik, Iceland's capital city, where Queen Mary 2 will be stationed overnight on August 12. Indulge in Icelandic delicacies, partake in enriching Shore Experiences, or simply relax onboard as you await the awe-inspiring eclipse.

Spanish and French Sojourn with Queen Anne

For those seeking warmer climes, embark on a 7-night roundtrip voyage from Southampton aboard Cunard's newest ship, Queen Anne. Departing on August 9, 2026, guests will explore the picturesque Spanish and French ports of call, with highlights including the charming town of La Coruña in Spain. Departing from La Coruña in the early evening on August 12, guests aboard Queen Anne will have the perfect vantage point to witness the eclipse unfold against the backdrop of the fading sun, creating a truly magical atmosphere.

Mediterranean Magic with Queen Victoria

Step aboard Queen Victoria for a week-long Mediterranean escapade, departing from Civitavecchia on August 10, 2026, and culminating in the vibrant city of Barcelona. Explore the ancient wonders of Tarragona, Spain, during the day on August 12, before returning to the ship for an evening of celestial marvels. With ample deck space and panoramic views, guests can choose their preferred vantage point to witness the eclipse, whether it's from the comfort of a deck chair or with toes dipped in the refreshing waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Join us on these extraordinary voyages with Cunard, where luxury meets celestial wonder, and create memories to last a lifetime as you witness the awe-inspiring beauty of a total solar eclipse at sea.
