Cunard Line

Renowned elegance, spacious luxury and excellent service.
Cunard

Cunard is renowned for being a pioneer of world cruising, having completed many historical transatlantic journeys. While Cunard may not be as experienced in onboard activities as the more modern cruise lines, it makes up for it with its rich history. Cunard operates great luxurious ships with a classic design including the Queen Mary which is the most expensive ship ever built. After the world war, Queen Mary, alongside Queen Elizabeth, dominated the transatlantic transportation market and so contributes to Cunard's appeal to history fanatics in particular.

Although Cunard specializes in world cruising, it also offers cruise holidays along numerous routes, which vary in length and direction to satisfy the tastes of all cruise enthusiasts. With the availability of Around-the-world voyages, Asian adventures and Transpacific tours there are few world destinations that cannot be reached onboard a Cunard cruise. With a wide range of cruises leaving from Melbourne in particular, Cunard cruise line is perfectly suited for the Australian market.

Cunard

Modern Cruise Liners with a Historical Flair

Founded in 1840, Cunard Line is a British based multi-national shipping company headquartered in Carnival House, Southampton, England, along with sister cruise brands P&O Cruises, P&O Cruises Australia and its parent company, Carnival UK (ultimately owned by Carnival Corporation plc.) With a long standing tradition of oceanic voyages, Cunard Line remains one of the oldest and most famous cruise companies in the world. Cunard Line’s four transatlantic steam ships, which sailed from Liverpool to Boston, quickly became known as the fastest way to cross the Atlantic Ocean. The company ordered its first superliner cruise ships in 1902, one of which being the famous Lusitania. A big name with a unique history, Cunard Line holds a number of flagships to its name; from launching the historic Lusitania in 1906 torpedoed in World War 1, to presently operating Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.

Cunard Line’s World Famous Fleet

All built within the last 10 years, the Cunard fleet of three 5 Star vessels combines timeless elegance with the Cunard trademark of prestigious charm and modern-day comforts.
Arguably the most well-known of the fleet, the Queen Mary 2 (also referred to as QM2) was built as a transatlantic ocean liner and therefore more specifically designed from many other passenger ships. With a maximum speed of just over 30 knots (56km/hr), QM2 Queen Mary 2 travels much faster than a contemporary cruise ship!

Having the same design as other Vista-class cruise ships, though slightly longer and maintaining Cunard Lines’ interior style stands the majestic Queen Victoria (QV).Become captivated by QV’s Queen Victoria’s soaring Grand Lobby the moment you traverse though its exquisite doors embossed with a royal flair.

A tribute to her predecessors QM2 Queen Mary 2 and QVQueen Victoria, the Queen Elizabeth classically evokes remnants of the 1930’s era, synonymous with Cunard Lines cruise ships, and is the youngest of the three Cunard vessels. Sail in the harmony of grandeur and contemporary sophistication on-board and discover vast array of exotic destinations and cultures.
