Top 10 Reasons to Cruise with Cunard

Posted February 16th, 2015

A cruise with Cunard is all about elegance, luxury relaxation and making exactly what you want out of your holiday. Boasting the most famous and elegant fleet of ocean liners in the world, Cunard’s spacious luxury and excellent service has attracted discerning travellers for decades. And here are our top 10 reasons why you should be attracted too:

  • White Star Service

Cunard’s White Star Service is the warmth of the first welcome when you embark, the white-gloved hand that serves you afternoon tea, and the polite yet friendly greeting in the corridor. It’s service so discreet you barely notice it, yet it is always ready to help.

Impeccable service is a Cunard standard

  • A Setting to Total Comfort

Perfect over almost 175 years, Cunard staff maintain a tradition of impeccable standards which sit perfectly with the surroundings – from the magnificent Grand Lobby to the grandeur of Britannia Restaurant.

  • Transatlantic Crossings

Cunard ships have been crossing the Atlantic since 1863. Today only Queen Mary 2 regularly makes this journey. Not only does it remain as glamorous and exciting as ever, it also remains one of travels most iconic experiences.

  • The Leader in World Cruises

Cunard has more experience of World Cruises than any other cruise line. They invented the concept in 1922 and 2015 will be the 75th year in which they have offered World Cruise itineraries. In that time they have completed more circumnavigations and taken more passengers on this incredible journey than any other cruise line. They know World Cruising better than anyone else!

  • Excellent Food from Michelin Star Chefs

Cunard guests can dine out in style, only moments from their door. With excellent food made to order by Michelin Star Chefs, from the early morning until dinner and beyond, you are spoilt for choice. And your table is always reserved in one of their renowned restaurants, depending on the suite or stateroom you’ve chosen.

  • Talks and Entertainment by Big Names

Writers, actors, film-makers, explorers, scientists, historians and even the occasional astronaut, are often on board to inform and entertain guests as part of the Cunard Insights program*.

  • The Only Planetarium at Sea

On Cunard’s ships you can often see incredible expanses of stars stretched from horizon to horizon. That’s why on certain cruises, experts from the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) run classes on deck, to help you pinpoint Orion or Aquarius on the night sky. Queen Mary 2 takes this idea indoors to Illuminations, where the only planetarium at sea explains what you can see overhead at different times of the year.

  • Enriching Day Times at Your Pace

Every day of a Cunard cruise is an invitation, an opportunity. There is always something new to try, from fencing and Pilates to Tango lessons and photography classes. Treatments in the Canyon Ranch Spa Club*, martini mixology and wine tasting are among almost countless other options. You can always find the time for your favourite pastimes too, like bridge, cinema or watching live sport.

  • The Largest Ballroom at Sea

You can take a range of dance classes and enjoy ballroom dancing to a live orchestra in the largest ballroom at sea.

  • Spacious Suites and 24 Hour Room Service

Cunard’s Queen Grill suites are the most luxurious interpretation of the Cunard experience, complete with separate living and sleeping areas, a spacious balcony and marble bathroom.
