About Cunard

For over 180 years we have set the bar, and then raised it. Our rich history and unrivaled seafaring knowledge means that Cunard has grown into a truly iconic brand. A brand that constantly refines the definitive experience of ocean travel.

Our fleet comprises four Queens: Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth, and our newest ship Queen Anne. Over the years, we have sailed a staggering 249 ships to the four corners of the world.

Our past

During what is widely known as the Golden Age of cruising, many of Hollywood’s biggest names traveled the seas in style with Cunard. The likes of Cary Grant, Elizabeth Taylor, and Charlie Chaplin were among our guests. It was our unparalleled, white-gloved service, impressive ball rooms, and the chance to discover the world in sublime comfort, that kept this calibre of guests returning; the same reasons why our modern-day guests have followed suit.

Our present

The designs of our current ships have been inspired by our past but reimagined for our future. Alongside classic, art deco stylings and unrivalled craftsmanship you’ll find splashes of bold color and contemporary comforts.

Feel free to do as much or as little as you like on board, as every venue has been carefully developed to provide plenty of choice. Whether your priority is relaxation, adventure, or indulgence, your Cunard ship will not disappoint.

Our future

As a fleet of four ships, we continue to extend the Cunard Line for future generations, creating even more opportunity to sail the world in comfort and style.

As we steadily approach 200 years of Cunard, our rich heritage of ocean travel means we have been able to refine what it means to voyage.

We look forward to welcoming you on board.
