What is an overland tour?

Overlands are tours that generally operate during an active voyage, typically World Voyages. Guests will depart the ship in one port and return in another. The tours typically take place during sea days to ensure you get the most out of your tour and port days*.

Overlands are a great way to allow you the chance to see big "bucket list"/once-in-a-lifetime sights not possible on regular tour itineraries.



  • Well planned, end to end itineraries
  • Expert guides to give the best local experience
  • Venture further afield with confidence
  • Carefully selected local operators, airlines and accommodations
  • See once in a lifetime sights while missing sea days, not ports **
  • Fully inclusive of flights, hotels, meals and refreshments **

How to book

To view and book the overland tours available for your voyage, please visit My Cunard.

Please note that when booking an overland tour with double accommodation, both guests will need to purchase a ticket on My Cunard, as the cost is per person, not per room. As some of these tours have deadlines, make sure the guests book early to avoid disappointment. Some need to be booked 30 days before they take place, for example, so it’s ideal to book well in advance of the month before you sail on these experience types.

Important visa information

Please check the visa requirements for any overland tour you book as these may not be the same as the visa requirements for your World Voyage. Guests can find visa and all other information in the “important information” section of the shore experience on My Cunard.

Cunard Line is pleased to recommended CIBT as our preferred visa service provider. CIBT are experts in visa and passport arrangements and can provide visas online or by phone 0207 620 6998.


Overlands are different to our Land Tours and shore experiences.  

* Please note this is not always possible, depending on itinerary of the overland, it may take place during a port day.

** Unless otherwise stated.
