Cunard Cruise Enrichment Programmes

Meeting experts and celebrities can be a memorable part of your cruise.

Join us on board and you might spot some familiar faces, including writers, actors, film-makers, politicians, explorers, scientists, historians and even the occasional astronaut. Likely as not, it’s because they’ve been invited to inform and entertain you as part of CUNARD INSIGHTS®, our regular talks on contemporary issues by well-known celebrities and personalities.

There's almost no limit to what you can learn on your holidays. All the speakers add another dimension to your cruise. And that's just the start, with experts on hand to teach you about everything from technology to distant constellations.
