Famous faces on the high seas.
A royal connection.
Pillars of society.
Cunard's modern, yet classic, flagship Queen Mary 2 has similarly hosted many dignitaries and politicians over the years; people who have shaped the world.
“Nelson Mandela’s comment sums up the Cunard experience really well. Despite the fame and success of the many politicians, celebrities and royalty who have sailed on Cunard ships, these well-known and famous people are just as excited as everyone else to be sailing on board a Cunard ship, and particularly a Cunard Queen.” – Chris Frame.
In addition to royals, world leaders and dignitaries, Cunard’s ships have also played host to acclaimed stars of the stage and screen. Notable celebrities who have traveled on board Queen Mary 2 include comedian John Cleese, and actors Carrie Fisher, Jane Seymour and Meryl Streep. Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Ed Sheeran are a few more of the iconic names from the entertainment industry to sail on board.
