Cunard Cruises

4.4
(from 439 verified customers)

Cunard is a luxury British cruise line, offering traditional white glove service and rich onboard experiences all around the world. Cunard has been a leading operator of passenger ships in the North Atlantic and pioneered transatlantic journeys - a crossing for which its renown continues. In 2020, Cunard celebrates an incredible 180 years of operation. Aboard all three ships in the fleet, affectionately known as the three Queens, fine dining, decadent entertainment, a diverse enrichment program and exceptional ‘White Star’ service lay the foundations for an unforgettable time at sea.

Trademark red and black funnels and black hulls identify the fleet of three cruise ships - MS Queen Victoria, MS Queen Elizabeth, and ocean liner RMS Queen Mary 2, the world’s only true ocean liner. All the vessels, plus the fourth new ship, earmarked for a 2022 arrival, have a traditional and lavish air, with grand atriums, staircases and promenades. Rich and Intricate wood and marble detailing adorn common areas. In the evenings, Cunard adheres to a formal dress code (black tie) - watching and joining the festivities is all part of the experience and charm.

Exclusive areas and dining options are available to guests of Princess and Queens Grill suites. Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria traverse the globe, often visiting Australia as part of their annual three-month grand or world voyages. Queen Mary 2 spends much of her time making the iconic transatlantic crossing. Cunard offers a wonderful experience from which to explore near and far-flung lands. It is well-suited to individuals or couples seeking who have an appreciation for history and tradition. Passengers tend to be of a more mature demographic. That said, younger travellers and children are very well catered to, with excellent facilities and services, however there is a quota for the number of children allowed to sail on each voyage.

Gala evenings are a signature occurrence aboard Cunard for cruises over three nights. These events are black-tie and generally themed and make for a thoroughly enjoyable evening - a jacket is a must for men, but you’ll likely want to doll up more as there are some incredible outfits on parade.

    By day, a rich offering of guest lecturers - authors, artists, historians and scientists take to the theatre stage. Dance and fencing lessons, film screenings, card games and daily quizzes are just some of the entertainment on offer. Live music such as piantists, jazz bands, harpists and more are regularly playing in the Queens Room and dancing is often unavoidable! For what’s on offer each day, it’s best to check your daily cruise planner, distributed each evening.
