It has been 175 years since Britannia left Liverpool on her maiden Transatlantic Voyage and Cunard changed the face of ocean travel forever. Since then, Cunard has been creating distinctive and memorable experiences for every guest.
The red and black funnel of Cunard’s three magnificent Queens continues to attract attention wherever they dock. Queen Mary 2 - the world’s only true ocean liner, Queen Elizabeth − named by Her Majesty the Queen and Queen Victoria - known for her elegance and comfort, make up the iconic Cunard fleet. Each ship is an oasis of discovery and relaxation - and the perfect setting from which to explore new sights or old favourites.
Sailing on one of the three Queens is a true sense of occasion, and with many special events taking place on board in this 175th anniversary year, every guest can be a part of Cunard history.
Take a look back at our
illustrious 175 year history with this short video timeline:
