About Cunard

Anyone with even the slightest interest in cruises has surely head of the Cunard Line. Its name is synonymous with luxury, and its three glorious ships - the Queen Mary 2, the Queen Victoria, and the Queen Elizabeth - offer travelers long journeys that traverse the globe. Onboard a Cunard vessel, passengers will have the chance to experience old-world cruise traditions, while still enjoying all the modern amenities that can be expected of a 21st-century cruise. As the royal names of the ships might imply, the Cunard takes its British heritage seriously, and onboard there are plenty of opportunities to try old English pursuits, including afternoon tea, bridge, and croquet.

The three ships are all equipped with pools, beauty salons, state-of-the-art spas, and casinos. Cunard cruises always offer passengers the chance to learn something new, too, with a number of lectures presented by Oxford-trained professors, and drama classes led by London's famous RADA troupe. Fencing lessons are also available, for anyone who wants to try out something a bit different.

The flagship of the Cunard Line is the Queen Mary 2, a 2,691-passenger ocean liner first launched in 2003. It has all the luxury and top-quality amenities that Cunard passengers would expect, as well as some unique offerings. Its 150-seater planetarium - the only attraction of its kind at sea - has three spectacular shows a day. It also has a special Kennel Suite for those passengers who can't bear to travel without their furry friends. Up to 24 cats and dogs are welcome on transatlantic crossings, and the pampered pets will be carefully looked after by dedicated kennel masters. The 2,081-passenger Queen Victoria and 2,061-passenger Queen Elizabeth are not quite as grand as the Queen Mary, but they also offer a luxurious experience full of old-world glamour. Daily shows in the onboard theater are a highlight, and sea days are livened up by golf putting, darts tournaments, trivia competitions, and ballroom and line dancing sessions.

Unlike other luxury companies, the Cunard Line has made an effort to target families. World cruises still attract a predominantly mature clientele, but transatlantic crossings are more mixed. Kids can enjoy discos, games, and a daily children's tea. Theme days for kids are common, and certified British nannies are on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly. The ships each have a wading pool for youngsters to splash around in on hot days.

Cunard voyages literally span the globe, so the list of destinations is huge. There's a wide array of journeys on offer, from 4 or 5 nights around some of East Asia's most fascinating cities to full 67-night experiences crossing four continents. A trip from Brisbane, Australia, to Southampton, England, starts by heading north to Bali and Hong Kong, before heading south to the tropical destinations of the Seychelles and Mauritius, dipping around Africa with stops in Cape Town and Namibia, before heading north again to Europe. Shore excursions are thoughtfully chosen based on each destination. For example, a cruise stopping in Venice will include a gondola ride around the lagoon, while in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, guests can visit an orangutan reserve. There are a number of shore excursions available at each stop, including options for passengers with reduced mobility.

All three Cunard ships offer a large number of outside cabins, most of which have balconies. The Queen Victoria also has single cabins for solo travelers. All cabins come with TV, sofa, refrigerator, tea and coffee-making facilities, air conditioning, a writing desk and chair. Suites not only offer more luxurious accommodation - including full butler service in the finest - they also give passengers the chance to dine in exclusive onboard restaurants.

Cruise Ships of Cunard Cruises

Queen Elizabeth

The youngest member of the Cunard Line fleet, Queen Elizabeth is a Vista-class cruise ship that made its maiden voyage in 2010. It offers old-fashioned elegance, with entertainment including lawn bowls, afternoon tea and ballroom dancing, in Art Deco-inspired surroundings. This cruise ship gives passengers a chance to escape from modern life and immerse in old world glamor.

A number of cruise options are available on Queen Elizabeth, ranging from short 4 or 5-night trips around East Asia, taking in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore, across Europe and longer trips to Australia. Popular ports of call include Lisbon, Melbourne, the Canary Islands and Helsinki. Shore excursions allow passengers to delve into culture, such as kayaking around the ancient city walls in Dubrovnik and gondola rides in Venice.

With a passenger capacity of 2092 and a crew of 996, Queen Elizabeth has 154 inside rooms and 892 outside rooms, spread over 12 passenger decks. While the luxurious, exclusive Grand Suites include dining for eight, a powder room, butler service and more, all rooms are equipped with amenities including private showers, refrigerators, safes, hairdryers, robes with matching slippers and satellite TVs.

The ship is inspired by traditional English culture, and guests will find many iconic brands such as Fortnum & Mason and Harris Tweed operating onboard. There are two pools and eight restaurants, a casino, spa and fitness center, where passengers can take classes including yoga and spinning. A driving net allows guests to practice their golf swing and croquet is also available. Children are catered for with playgrounds and organised activities, however Queen Elizabeth is best suited to couples, mature travelers and those with a penchant for elegance.

Queen Mary 2

Perhaps the most famous cruise ship in the world, Queen Mary 2 is the flagship of the luxurious Cunard Line. Following an extensive refurbishment in 2016, Queen Mary 2 blends modern luxury with old-world elegance, and is the ideal choice for a truly memorable, once-in-a-lifetime holiday.

Queen Mary 2 can accommodate 2,695 passengers and 1,253 officers and crew. The cruise ship is well-known for extensive round-the-world routes, although if passengers cannot spare the months to complete a full voyage, shorter journey segments are available. There is something available to suit any length of trip.

Guests enjoy a 5-day journey from Hong Kong to Singapore, to a full 62 day itinerary, taking passengers from Sydney, Australia to Southampton, England. Along the way, there are a range of iconic destinations to visit, including Bali, India, and Dubai, with excursions such as visiting India’s Elephanta Island and catamaran trips to Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.

The 2016 refurbishment saw some exciting new upgrades to Queen Mary 2. The ocean liner boasts 1,360 cabins, including the new addition of single cabins, providing affordable space for solo travelers. All cabins have a Samsung flat-screen TV, refrigerator, storage space, sofa and coffee table. Passengers in suites can enjoy a private sun terrace on Deck 11, complete with its own whirlpool, as well as exclusive dining options.

Interesting features aboard Queen Mary 2 include a breathtaking, full-scale planetarium and, for passengers who can't bear to leave Fido at home, the world's only cruise kennels, run by a dedicated kennel master. The ship continues to enforce a formal dress code, so for those into old-style elegance, Queen Mary 2 is a great choice.

Queen Victoria

Following a refurbishment in 2017, Cunard's Queen Victoria is back on the high seas, with an increased capacity of 2,081 passengers. Although smaller than her sister, Queen Elizabeth, this is another Cunard luxury cruise ship built along classic British lines, with decor and activities that bring the golden age of the 1920s and 1930s to life.

A number of different routes can be enjoyed onboard Queen Victoria, including a 2-night cruise from Hamburg, Germany to Southampton and a 14-night transatlantic crossing that will take passengers from Fort Lauderdale to Southampton. Along the way, Queen Victoria stops in Charleston, South Carolina, and then makes a mid-Atlantic stop in Praia Da Vitoria, where guests can disembark to enjoy the natural beauty of the remote Azores Islands.

Following the refurbishment, Queen Victoria has 1,035 cabins, including 151 inside, 139 Oceanview, and 566 with balconies. Ten cabins, including two Princess Suites and one Queen's Suite, have wheelchair access and include extra-wide doors and a special bathroom. Single cabins are also available. All cabins come with a sofa, refrigerator, telephone, nightly turndown service, bathrobes and slippers, as well as tea and coffee-making facilities, air conditioning and TVs.

In terms of activities, formal nights with a dress code are a feature, like the Black and White Ball, to add to the fun. The Games Deck is a nostalgic trip back in time, where passengers can enjoy paddle tennis, shuffleboard, croquet, hoopla and deck quoits. There are golf-putting tournaments, bingo, and ballroom dancing classes, and two large pools giving guests the chance to cool off on a hot day cruising, on board Queen Victoria.
