Cruise with Cunard

You don’t need to be an Anglophile to love Cunard Line, but it helps.

The British cruise line has carried passengers across the Atlantic Ocean since 1840, earning it the nickname “the only way to pass.” While Cunard might not be the only way to cross the Atlantic nowadays, it still focuses on transatlantic voyages more than any other cruise line.

The three royal Queens of Cunard ships: Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, were designed to carry on the classic traditions of the old-world ocean liners. From the English tea served every afternoon by white-gloved waiters to a live band in the grand ballroom ready to entertain as don your most elegant attire to waltz the night away.

Even the happy hours feel more like sophisticated cocktail parties, which makes sense as most Cunarders are of a mature age where enrichment activities, engaging lectures and reading in the best libraries at sea, take precedence over waterslides and rock climbing walls (not found on Cunard).

Cunard’s itineraries cater to sea-day-loving cruisers, ranging from grand voyages around the world to regularly scheduled transatlantic sailings, though seasonal cruises to Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, Canada and New England are available.
