PLAY THE GAME. CRUISE THE WORLD.
The legendary cruise line is famed for its nostalgic transatlantic sailings, reminiscent of a bygone era with formal black-tie dinners, classically British afternoon teas and ballroom galas.
The ships’ elegant, art deco design features, grand furnishings and images of Hollywood starlets all serve as reminders of the golden age of cruising.
Along with its iconic transatlantic voyages, Cunard also offers sailings across the world. Destinations include the Mediterranean, US and Canada, Alaska, South America, Northern Europe, Canary Islands, the Caribbean, Africa, the Indian Ocean, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and the South Pacific.
Cunard has become known for its cultural enrichment voyages, including the annual Transatlantic Fashion Week cruise, which has seen the line partner with well-known designers including Zandra Rhodes, Julien McDonald and Badgley Mischka, as well as its Literary Festival of Sea, which has previously featured authors Ian Rankin, Alexander McCall Smith, Prue Leith and Joanne Harris.
Cunard offers a stylish and traditional style of cruising that’s in a league all of its own.
Passengers seeking a traditional, glamorous and formal style of cruising will love travelling aboard Cunard’s fleet of ships.
Typically (and unsurprisingly), the transatlantic voyages predominantly attract older British and North American cruisers, but you will find some younger couples and families.
You will also find some furry companions on board Cunard’s Queen Mary 2, being the only ship in the world that permits pets to cruise with their owners between the two countries.
However, the cruise line has one of the strictest formal dress codes at sea, with even informal nights requiring jackets and dresses, so those seeking a more relaxed and contemporary style of luxury cruising should look elsewhere.
