Cruise line info
If travel is meant to be savored, then crossing the oceans should be a majestic experience, not merely a hop across the pond. For travelers of this persuasion, only one name evokes the pleasures of a golden era: Cunard Line. Proudly continuing the tradition of luxury cruising that began in 1840, Queen Mary 2 debuted in 2004 as the new flagship of The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the World. As the tallest, longest, largest and most expensive cruise ship ever built, QM2 provides her guests with unprecedented amenities and accommodations at every turn. Maintaining the tradition of her Cunard and White Star Line predecessors, QM2 is the only ship offering regularly scheduled transatlantic service. Queen Elizabeth 2 continues to set the standard of British elegance with superb White Star Service and gourmet cuisine. Sailing a definitive World Cruise and round-trip Southampton voyages, QE2 endures as one of the greatest liners of her time. The two Queens will be joined by Queen Victoria in 2007.
With the introduction of Queen Elizabeth, Cunard will be celebrating a new golden age of ocean liner travel. This gracious new Cunarder took up residence in Southampton in October 2010 after being named by Her Majesty the Queen.
As sister ship to Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth will recall the rich heritage of the first Cunarders to bear the name with details and features from her predecessors Queen Elizabeth and QE2. Her art deco flourishes will echo the legendary golden age of ocean travel and the activities she offers onboard such as traditional supper clubs with dancing and a Cunard Classic Film Club, will captivate regular Cunard guests and those new to the brand alike.
Her opulent public rooms include a soaring and graceful Grand Lobby stretching over 3 decks with stunning curved staircases, and a double height Queens Room with specially commissioned stained glass panels, ornate balconies and an intricate wooden dance floor. Her new Garden Lounge, with its fabulous conservatory style roof inspired by the glass houses at Kew gardens, will offer dining and dancing under the stars, and the spacious Games Deck will offer a range of unique activities including lawn bowling, croquet and paddle tennis and will play host to refined and elegant garden parties.
Queen Elizabeth boasts a new Britannia Club Restaurant which offers guests staying in AA Club Balconies a luxurious and elegant single seating restaurant, introduced due to the popularity of this concept on Queen Mary 2. She will also provide more flexibility for families with a selection of 4 berth staterooms.
This glorious new addition to the fleet marks the next glittering chapter in Cunard’s great history.
