Cunard’s onboard offering of sophistication and ambience harkens back to the golden age of cruising during the 1930s-50s when ocean travel was celebrated as the glamorous and luxurious method of holidaying offering impeccable service, magnificent ships and cultured voyages.

Cunard are best for

Guests seeking a traditional British ocean liner experience, preferring educational pursuits on board rather than Vegas-style entertainment. Cunard is popular for world cruisers as well as guests who enjoy back-to-back voyages across – the three Queens. Cunard is also well known for their Transatlantic Crossing from Southampton to New York or vice versa.

Atmosphere & Experience onboard 

The iconic ships of Cunard have been known for sophisticated ocean travel for over 180 years and are perhaps the most famous in the world. The ships’ atmosphere is dignified and traditional, with nods to history throughout in the décor and activities. Building on a prestigious heritage, Cunard’s fleet has some of the best ship facilities, entertainment and activity options available.

The attentive crew take great pride in making your stay on board unforgettable. From the very first greeting when you embark, to the way your stateroom steward greets you by name, the service is warm and sincere. It isn’t stuffy. It isn’t hurried. It’s always friendly, but never over-familiar. This is the famous Cunard White Star Service.


Cunard attracts an international crowd. The clientele tends to be 50+ and well-travelled, however Transatlantic Crossings and the Australian and New Zealand homeport seasons, especially, attract a younger crowd and multi-generational travel.
