Cunard Cruise Line to Europe
Refined, sophisticated, timeless elegance…this is what the Cunard experience has always been about. The reigning Queens of Cunard, the Queen Mary 2 (2004), Queen Victoria (2007) and Queen Elizabeth (2010), welcome guests with refined British hospitality paired with legendary, elegant, and memorable service. For many, Mediterranean cruising with Cunard will be the obvious choice.
In general, Cunard attracts a well-traveled crowd of passengers, many of them repeaters who appreciate the line's old-time virtues such as taking 4-o'clock-tea or ballroom dancing. Central to the onboard experience is “Cunard Insights”, the line's lecture program. Instructors, celebrities, and other authorities present talks on literature, political history, marine science, modern art, Shakespeare on film, architectural history, cooking, computer applications, languages, and many other topics.
Cunard ships will offer a variety of seven, 14 and 21-day Mediterranean cruises with departures from Venice, Rome and Athens as well as Northern European cruises to the Norwegian Fjords, Baltic, and the Black Sea from Southampton. The appealing blend of charming ports and overnight stays in historic old world cities truly characterizes the new “golden age” of ocean travel. To help guests experience the very best of every destination, Cunard offers a diverse selection of shore excursions, from leisurely sightseeing to exciting activities.
A Cunard Transatlantic Crossing is a seven or eight-night cruise across the Atlantic Ocean on board the magnificent ocean liner, Queen Mary 2. While some ships make the journey twice a year, the Queen Mary 2 is the only vessel which does it on a regular basis. For the passengers there are no ports of call, there's just the destination to look forward to; Southampton on the eastbound journey, New York on the westbound. Passengers have all the time in the world and it's still not enough to engage in every activity offered onboard!
For over a century and a half, the Queens of Cunard have carried guests across the great oceans and to the far points of the globe in unparalleled style. For that reason, a European or Mediterranean cruise aboard a Cunard ship is one of the finest means of discovering Europe’s history, its majesty and its treasures.
