Lounge In The Lap Of Luxury: Cunard Sail Into Summer In Style With This Trio Announcement

Lounge In The Lap Of Luxury: Cunard Sail Into Summer In Style With This Trio Announcement

Luxury cruise brand Cunard is starting its summer cruises with a trio of premium partnerships.

They have revealed new ties with Ascot Racecourse, Laurent-Perrier and are also continuing to build on its long-standing relationship with the Royal Horticultural Society.

The iconic British cruise liner is known for its connections with world-renowned luxury brands and these new additions will give them a presence at two highly-anticipated events – RHS Chatsworth Flower Show and Ascot’s Festival of Food and Wine Racing Weekend.

The announcements are a testament to its commitment to giving their guests first-class experience by delivering quality and premium cruise services across the world whilst catering for an array of tastes from helm to stern.

Angus Struthers, Vice President, Cunard, commented: “We are delighted to announce a trio of new 2017 summer partnerships with Ascot, Laurent-Perrier and RHS Chatsworth Flower Show. Bringing such rich history and embodying a unique sense of occasion, each one marries perfectly with Cunard’s values and luxury service.

“From fine-dining to first class entertainment and five-star bubbles, we hope guests enjoy truly unforgettable experiences with is throughout the season.”

Ascot 2017

Ascot’s rich history and unrivalled sense of occasion is the perfect setting for Cunard and this year, the line will sponsor the Cunard Handicap Stakes on Saturday 9th September. This is a Class 2 Handicap worth £80,000 for horses aged three years and over, run over seven furlongs and will be televised as part of ITV racing on ITV1.

During each day of Royal Ascot 20th – 24th June, guests who download the new Ascot app will be entered into a competition to win a daily prize of a Transatlantic Crossing for two on board Queen Mary 2 and Cunard World Club members have received exclusive dining offers at the Royal Meeting.

RHS Chatsworth Flower Show 2017

Cunard and the Royal Horticultural Society have united for the past six years, bringing the Palace Garden Tea Room to gardening enthusiasts at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

This year though, the line’s sponsorship will play a part in launching The Piano Stage at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show 7th – 11th June 2017: a new addition to the world of horticulture at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, the scenic home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.

Set over five days in the beautiful grounds of the estate, The Piano Stage will boast river views and The Great Conservatory as its backdrop and offer a stunning haven to relax and enjoy live entertainment provided by the RHS.

Queen Mary 2’s Laurent-Perrier Lounge

Following the £90 million re-design of the QM2 last summer, Cunard has revealed yet another enhancement to its most luxurious liner with the arrival of a stunning Laurent-Perrier Champagne Lounge.

From May 2017, guests will be able to savour the full collection of Laurent-Perrier’s 5 star champagnes paired with complimentary canapes and a series of tasting flights.
