Cunard reveals custom cruise-tour packages for Cape Town and Dubai cruises in 2019

Cape Town and Dubai have been selected as two of four cities in which Cunard Line will be offering cruise-tour packages aboard Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria from late 2018.

Unlike traditional pre-and-post-cruise tours that are added to cruises at an additional cost, Cunard is offering these new packages bundled with select voyages from Cape Town, Dubai, Rome and Hong Kong for a single fare.
