Cunard cruises bring old-world glamour to the table, cruising guests across vast oceans in high style since 1847. They have 3 magnificent ships within their fleet: Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria, and Queen Mary 2.
If you’ve never sailed with Cunard before, here are 10 reasons that might convince you to in the future…
The White Star Service
Cunard is famous for their ‘White Star Service’ onboard their ships. From the moment you get onboard you’ll experience a warm and friendly service from all of their crew. Every detail of your cruise will be carefully considered to ensure you have a fabulous holiday!
Afternoon tea onboard a Cunard ship is a daily ritual! Served by white-gloved waiters from 3.30 to 4.30 pm, you’ll have the opportunity to indulge in finger-sized sandwiches and cream topped scones to your heart’s content.
If you’re looking for a luxury experience onboard Cunard, then their Grills Suite are simply something else. From chocolates and champagne on arrival to your very own butler. It really doesn’t get much better than this.
Looking for some glamour when onboard? Then Cunards Gala balls might just be for you. Hosted each night onboard in the largest ballroom at sea you can dance the night away to their live orchestra in the Queens Room. So go and dig out your glad rags.
Transatlantic Crossings from Southampton to New York have been run by Cunard since 1847! Queen Mary 2 is the only ship within the fleet to make these crossings today but the experience is legendary. Plus, if you don’t like flying, this may be a great alternative.
Cunard’s Insights enrichment programmes offer talks, seminars and discussions by well-known historians, explorers, top diplomats, politicians, scientists and other notable experts. Some forthcoming speakers include Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Kenton Cool and Jamie Durie.
Cunard has an array of dining venues for you to enjoy onboard. Enjoy a sitdown meal in The Britannia, a quick snack of two in the buffet, or a New York steak in the Steakhouse at the Verandah.
If lazing around by the pool isn’t for you, onboard there are a number of activities you can take part in daily. Sports enthusiasts will feel right at home with activities including table tennis, paddle tennis, golf putting and swimming.
Each Cunard ship has a number of shops for you to browse whilst onboard including designer labels, souvenirs and even artwork. Meet leading artists and expand your collection.
From 6pm prepare to be entertained! Cunard put on an array of theatre shows, live comedy, concerts and recitals. Or, if you’re feeling lucky, why not visit the onboard casino for a spin on the roulette wheel?
