Cunard boasts an impressive list of cruising milestones. It was the first cruise line to take pianos to sea, introduced ensuite bathrooms in the late nineteenth century and added onboard gyms and health centres to their list of cruise industry breakthroughs in 1911. Cunard's history of itineraries is just as significant, with Laconia sailing the first world cruise in 1922. Cunard's guest book reads like a who's who of royal, political and Hollywood history, and the cruise line is still a firmly established favourite in the premium cruise sector. Cunard's three cruise liners, Queen Mary II, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth are among the most famous cruise ships at sea.
Departure ports are located in the UK, Europe, USA and New Zealand. Cunard liners sail to destinations in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the British Isles, Scandinavia & the Baltic, Canary Islands, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Panama Canal, USA (including Hawaii) and Canada, as well as offering transatlantic crossings and world cruises.
Who's On Board?
As a premium cruise line, Cunard passengers enjoy the very traditional luxury cruising style. There is a mix of passengers onboard, predominantly discerning couples from their late thirties upwards to wealthy retirees and families (though not as many families as on other larger cruise ships).
