Cunard Cruise Lines
Queen Mary 2. Some say, the world's grandest ocean liner ever!
The legacy of a Cunard cruise... It was a more civilized era, the golden age of sea travel. Crossing the ocean was a grand event unto itself, the very embodiment of sophistication and privilege. And traveling Cunard was what one naturally chose for such a cruise voyage. And miraculously this esteemed cruise line has endured through the years to offer the same cruise experience of yesteryear with all the luxuries of our modern times.
In Cunard's own words their ships were "glorious ocean liners" - floating palaces of art deco splendor and Edwardian excess, surrounding guests with every comfort and luxury. They attracted the greatest personalities of the day, from world leaders to movie stars, who sipped champagne at festive black-tie soirees and strolled along graceful promenades attired in their finest apparel. It was the quintessence of luxury travel, and getting there was truly half the fun. Cunard continues this celebration of style with Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth 2 - proving once again, with Cunard, the journey may be even more magnificent that the destination.

The clientele on a Cunard Cruise Line tends to be a good mix of American and British passengers that tend to represent all ages from younger 30-somethings to the 55+ cruise (especially on longer cruises) with European cruises having a more International crowd that warrants daily ship announcements to be delivered in English, German, French and sometimes Spanish. Cunard Cruise Lines also attracts a significant amount of families throughout the year and since the fleet has been re-flagged from Southampton, U.K. to Bermuda there is a higher number of younger passengers aboard enjoying the wedding programs that are now offered aboard all three cruise ships.
