With cruise lines offering many theme-based cruises, like a "Harry Potter" cruise, a Disney cruise, an adult, senior, kids, and even family cruise, a Southampton, England-based cruise operator, called Cunard Line, is now hoping to seduce fans of the 19th century English novelist Jane Austen, by inviting them to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" with a new, three-night tour of Austen sites around the port city--where Austen lived for a time.

According to USA Today The Jane Austen tours are available as add-ons to select trans-Atlantic and Europe sailings of Cunard's Queen Mary 2 between April and December of this year, and include lodging and some meals.

Some stops on the tour, according to USA Today and cunard.com include:

Winchester Cathedral in Winchester, England, the location of Austen's burial site and home to an exhibition of her life and work. Here passengers will be also be able to tour the city. 

On the second day, passengers will visit Jane Austen's House Museum in Chawton, England, where Austen wrote many of her major works. "It is the location of the museum that she spent the last eight years of her life," stated on cunard.com.

They will also go to Chawton House Library, a historic manor that Austen frequented and that features a robust collection of 18th century women's literary works.

While, on the third day day, a visit to Stonehenge & Salisbury Cathedral, which is home to the original Magna Carta and a location for the 1995 film Sense and Sensibility, based on the eponymous Austen novel is on the itinerary.

When at sea, guests are welcome to dance the night away to a live orchestra in the Queens Room, a room that joyoftravel.ca claim is "the largest ballroom at seas."
