Cunard Line

And then there were three as Queen Elizabeth joins the Cunard fleet

Cunard's fleet of Queens - Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria - define a new golden age of ocean liner travel.

Their unique ocean liner capabilities allow for smooth worldwide sailing and a wide range of innovative facilities, elegant public rooms, generous amenities and luxurious accommodations.

The third in the line of floating Queen Elizabeths was named by Her Majesty at a star-studded celebration in Southampton on October 11, 2010, before setting sail on her maiden voyage the following day.

Queen Mary 2 is among the largest (151,400 tons), longest (1,132ft), tallest (236ft), widest (135ft) and most expensive ($800m), and even more luxurious after a £90m remastering in the spring of 2016.

Among her notable facilities are ten dining venues, including a Mediterranean speciality restaurant run by star chef Todd English, the world’s first planetarium at sea, the only spa at sea operated by Canyon Ranch, the largest ballroom at sea, the largest library at sea, the largest wine collection at sea, and a Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar.

On transatlantic crossings guest lecturers are provided by the University of Oxford and performers from London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art complement the entertainment offerings.

Queen Victoria, which joined the fleet in 2007, is modern and elegant. As you embark you’ll encounter the dramatic three-tier Grand Lobby, whose magnificent staircase and eye-catching artwork offers a lavish taste of life aboard.

Elaborate chandeliers adorn the Queens Room double height ceiling to enhance its calm grandeur. The Winter Garden is colonial in tone, with decked floors and leafy foliage and a glass roof that opens to the warm breeze.

Elegant and stylish, every public room creates a unique ambience where Cunard’s renowned White Star Service will continue to surpass expectations.

Named after the first Queen Elizabeth, one of Cunard’s greatest ships, the new Queen Elizabeth references her predecessor in interior grandeur, decor and style, but with a modern twist.

From the outside, her distinctive black and red livery hints at an experience that differentiates a Cunard liner from a modern-day cruise ship. This is most evident in the ship’s adherence to liner traditions, with elegant double and triple height public rooms on a grand scale, luxuriously endowed with rich wood panelling, intricate mosaics, gleaming chandeliers, and cool marbles.

Cunard Line has operated the most famous ocean liners in the world since 1840. Its vessels have a classic British heritage, destined to recapture the glamour of the original Queen Mary.
