For over a century and a half, the iconic ships of Cunard have been defining sophisticated ocean travel. They have always been The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the World®.
No other cruise line can claim to have as rich and storied history as Cunard. Beginning with Britannia, nearly 175 years ago, some of the most famous ships in Maritime history were Cunard ships. Cunard set the standard of luxury cruises with famous ocean liners such as Mauretania, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth 2. This tradition is alive and well today. Cunard has carried guests across the great oceans and to the far points of the globe in unparalleled style. And the most glamorous names of yesterday and today have made champagne toasts in their salons, waltzed the night away in grand ballrooms, and much more.
Read on to learn what makes Cunard cruise vacations different from other cruise liners.
What Makes Cunard Cruise Vacations Different?
Cunard cruise vacations means luxury on a grand scale. The mix of passengers onboard a typical Cunard sailing is truly unique. It’s a great mixture of different nationalities. The common bound is often the appreciation for the finer things in life.
Cunard provides guests with an enrichment program featuring leading experts in their fields, from writers to historians, along with celebrities and other famous faces.
How would you like to cruise with Grammy® Award-winning vocalist Gregory Porter? Or maybe journalist Neil Amdur who has worked as a sports writer, sports editor and senior editor for recruiting at The New York Times, and as a producer at CBS Sports? These are just a few of the famous names you could rub elbows with on your Cunard cruise vacation.
Cunard’s fleet is one of the youngest at sea, benefitting from the best facilities such as the Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria, and Queen Mary 2. The latter is undergoing a multi-million dollar refit at the
Blohm & Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany in May 2016. The renovations will be significant and elevate Queen Mary 2 to new heights. Enhancements include:
* Redesign of all Grill Suites, Princess Grill and Queens Grill restaurants.
* Thirty additional Britannia Club staterooms, single stateroom, Carinthia Lounge (formally the Winter Garden), Verandah Restaurant (formally Todd English).
* New carpeting and new menus.
* Additional kennels (the only cruise liner to have these) for cats and dogs along with a new partnership with Barbour, the English luxury fashion brand, to sell their exclusive line of dog accessories on board the remastered Queen Mary 2.
* The King’s Court dining venue.
