Cunard, the epitome of British luxury on the high seas, is synonymous with an opulent and time-honored cruise experience. Renowned for its unique white glove service, this company has proudly navigated the course of cruising with a grand history of setting the pace for transatlantic journeys, an area where it remains an iconic showpiece. As of 2020, Cunard marked an exceptional 180 years of navigational excellence, continuously gracing the ocean with their unique take on sea voyage grandeur. The Cunard fleet comprises four magnificent ships, affectionately dubbed the four Queens. Across the Atlantic and the world, these majestic liners – the epitome of nautical grandeur – carry the art of exquisite living out onto the oceans. Traditionally designed, these ships offer contemporary choices for the story-filled star-gazers who wistfully want to walk in the memories of history's waves.

The iconic red and black funnels paired with the classic black hulls are the hallmark of Cunard's prestigious fleet, comprising four exquisite cruise ships: Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2, and the newly introduced Queen Anne. These vessels exude a sense of traditional luxury, with their grandiose atriums, sweeping staircases, and elegant promenades. The opulence extends to the rich wood and marble finishes that grace the common areas, enveloping guests in an atmosphere of refined elegance. Cunard's evenings are celebrated with a formal dress code, inviting guests to partake in the glamour and spectacle of high society. Read more

This adherence to tradition enhances the overall charm and allure of the cruising experience. For those desiring an even more exclusive experience, the Princess and Queens Grill suites offer private areas and superior dining privileges, elevating the sense of luxury. The Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria are known for their extensive global itineraries, including annual visits to Australia during their grand or world voyages lasting three months. Meanwhile, the Queen Mary 2 is distinguished by her regular transatlantic crossings, embodying the spirit of classic ocean travel. Cunard caters to a clientele that cherishes history, tradition, and the finer things in life, making it particularly appealing to a mature audience. Nevertheless, younger guests and families are also warmly welcomed, with a plethora of facilities and services designed to entertain and accommodate children, albeit with a limited number allowed on each journey. This thoughtful balance ensures that Cunard offers a rich and diverse experience, ideal for those eager to explore both well-known destinations and the corners of the globe in unparalleled style and comfort.
