If you haven’t sailed with Cunard before, you’ll soon become accustomed to certain aspects of your cruise that are uniquely Cunard. The first is being the centre of attention – because the sight of their ships with their distinctive red and black funnels always causes a stir, wherever they dock. Another is the sense of space on board - you might occasionally find yourself wondering where most of your fellow passengers have gone. The Cunard fleet comprises three exceptional ships – Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2. Grand in scale, yet stylish down to the tiniest detail, each one is a world unto herself. An oasis of discovery and relaxation and the perfect setting from which to explore new destinations, or old favourites. And you simply must experience the Queens Rooms which are famous for Afternoon Tea and the legendary themed Balls. In an exciting new venture, Queen Mary 2 has unveiled the next chapter of Cunard innovation and investment having undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment earlier this year, introducing enhanced interior designs and passenger experiences across the ship. The new ship features refurbished Britannia staterooms, revamped Kings Court, contemporary French cuisine and a brand new venue- the Carinthia Lounge. Take advantage of the incredible new features with a cruise that departs after its completion - take a look at our special offers.

175 years ago, in 1840, Sir Samuel Cunard set sail aboard Britannia and founded the great transatlantic steamship service. Since that date, there have been hundreds of ships owned and operated by the Cunard Line. From the small paddle steamers to the magnificence of the Queens, Cunard Line has operated a vast array of ships over 175 years. Now, Cunard boasts three magnificent ships - Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria.
