In partnership with Pacific Symphony.

A classical music renaissance.

As the official cruise line of Pacific Symphony, Cunard’s support will enhance the organization’s mission to engage, inspire and serve Orange County through exceptional music performances, education and community programming. Just as Pacific Symphony’s vision is to lead a classical music renaissance in the community through creativity and innovation, Cunard’s credo mirrors those core values by providing an elegant and distinctive ocean travel experience featuring the line’s renowned White Star Service, and providing guests unique special event opportunities.

Orange County's acclaimed orchestra.

Founded in 1978, Pacific Symphony began as a collaboration between California State University, Fullerton, and North Orange County community leaders. "Pacific Symphony is delighted to welcome Cunard as the exclusive sponsor of our Box Circle Club, and we are gratified that they have joined us as the Symphony official cruise line. Cunard's guests and Pacific Symphony's audiences share much in common in their love for the very finest in art, culture, and world-class experiences," said John Forsyte, President & CEO, Pacific Symphony.
