The author has been in the Passenger Shipping industry for a very long time and although now semi-retired, but I am delighted to share all my knowledge with those who love to take their vacation by sea! Thus I continue to write on worthy Cruise Companies and their wonderful Ships in order to better to inform cruise and ship enthusiasts for their pleasure, but more so to ensure that you, my wonderful reader will make the best-informed choice possible!


Introducing the Cunard fleet:

Together the three great “Queens” are the largest Cunarders that have ever been built and together they comprise one of the most modern large ships, although in this day and age, what is a small fleet of ships, to grace the seven seas of the world! Many companies have up to 20 or more ships, but Cunard specialises in a very high standard of Cruise Ship that offers sheer elegance combined with that touch of old world tradition!

Year round these three supreme ships, such as the grandest of the fleet Queen Mary 2, together with Queen Victoria and the newest ship to join the company the Queen Elizabeth (3) will visit ports around the world and they will all sail to far away and exciting ports of call, including the wonderful Pacific, fascinating New Zealand and exciting and scenic Australia during their grand world voyages. In addition some ships will operate the ever-popular Trans-Atlantic sailings and of course regular cruises from Southampton to ports all over Europe and further.

Queen Mary 2 is the Cunard’s largest ship at 148,528 GRT (Gross Registered Ton) and the companies Grand Flagship for she carries the Cunard touch of tradition throughout the ship, yet she also offers every possible modern innovation and style possible.

Queen Victoria captivates her guests with her graceful splendour and luxurious ambience that is so evocative of the wonderful liners of days long gone!

Queen Elizabeth is the newest ship of the fleet very quickly endeared herself to Cunard’s discerning guests. There is no doubt that her contemporary flair so beautifully enhanced her décor with excellent touches of art deco!
