Cunard is renowned for being a pioneer of world cruising, having undertaken more world voyages than any other passenger line since 1847. Not only does Cunard have a rich history, they are also known for their impeccable "White Star" service - the famous signature Cunard Experience where no detail is overlooked. Their world-class fleet of 3 ships: Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, all offer a selection of uncrowded spaces to escape to, famous Afternoon Tea, spectacular Gala Balls and so much more.

Across the world trips are a signature of Cunard's and with a wide range of cruises leaving from Australia you can discover your own backyard.
Cunard Line has a long and storied history, dating as far back as its famous 1840s transatlantic crossings. While today there are much quicker ways to cross the Atlantic, there really is no finer way to do it than on board a Cunard vessel. The present day Queen Mary does this journey but the cruise line offers voyages in all corners of the globe, with many new maiden calls planned.
Voyages on board one of the three Queens have retained their timeless, sophisticated British style over the years, where no request is too much for the staff, and formal nights mean dress codes come into effect after 6pm.
Cunard itineraries offer a blend of iconic world-famous cities as well as unique, awe-inspiring destinations that allow for enriching days in port as well as plenty of time on board to explore your ship.
There are no guidelines as to what you should wear during the day, it is important that you feel comfortable.
