Cunard Line has opted for quality over quantity in regards to its ships, and despite its rich heritage and tradition, has one of the youngest and most modern fleets at sea. The three ships are recognisable by their distinctive red and black livery, and are a very regal trio - this reflected in their royal names. They each sail a range of itineraries all over the globe, with a focus on world cruises and transatlantic crossings. Click through to each vessel page for more information and individual deck plans.
Queen Mary 2: As Cunard's flagship the Queen Mary 2 is not, in fact, a cruise ship but a true ocean liner. She is purpose built for the routine crossings of the Atlantic which make up a large part of her schedule, with a distinctive angled bow and constanzi stern for greater stability and speed in the open ocean. Those who appreciate the nautical aspect of a cruise will go crazy for this wonderful vessel! She also sails regularly in the Caribbean.
Queen Victoria: This classic cruise ship exudes understated British elegance. As with all Cunard vessels, she eschews bright lights, rock climbing walls, exuberant decor and other such bells and whistles in favour of wood, brass, rich furnishings and a quiet luxury. She sails world cruises as well as some shorter itineraries around Europe and the Mediterranean.
Queen Elizabeth: Often confused with the retired QE2, the Queen Elizabeth is in fact a youngin, launched in 2010 as a sister to Queen Victoria. Her art-deco inspired decor is a little lighter than the Victoriana style found onboard her sibling, but otherwise they offer the same experience which emphasises heritage over modern gimmicks. The ship's itineraries include world cruises and trips around the British Isles, north to the Norwegian fjords and south to the Mediterranean.
The Cunard experience
The traditional feel of a Cunard cruise goes beyond the physical trappings and is reflected in the signature White Star Service as well as the top-notch enrichment programs and entertainment. Despite the lack of colourful waterparks and high-tech venues, there is no reason to be bored on any ship in the fleet - and the popularity of their transatlantic crossings (which entail almost a week straight at sea) can attest to that fact.
Low-key but top-notch entertainment on Cunard cruises includes well-qualified guest speakers on varied topics, regular music events and special guest bands of different genres, book clubs, theatre performances, classes and workshops - the Queen Mary 2 even has a planetarium onboard. The public spaces, bars and lounges offer places to sit, socialise and relax, and each ship has a â€œQueens Roomâ€ for that most beloved of cruise pastimes: ballroom dancing. During the day, passengers can enjoy the spa, pools and fitness centres, partake in some retail therapy, read in the library, take in a movie and participate in sports or traditional deck games. A nice feature on each ship is the wraparound promenade deck, perfect for strolling with an ocean view.
It's no surprise that dining onboard a Cunard ship comes with a sense of occasion. The main Britannia Restaurant on each ship is reached via a grand curved staircase, and the three-course menus offer a wonderful selection of delicious dishes. Princess Grill or Queens Grill passengers enjoy their own fine dining restaurants. The Kings Court or Lido buffet offers casual breakfasts and lunches, and sections can transform into smaller intimate venues for dinner which along with the Todd English restaurant make up the line's specialty offerings. Casual pub fare is available in the Golden Lion, and afternoon teas are served by white-gloved waiters to bridge the gap between meals.
