Cunard - Overview


Overview of Cunard

Three Cunard Ships sailing out of SouthamptonThere are many compelling reasons why your Cunard voyage will be an experience to treasure. First and foremost, as our crew greets you warmly and your steward shows you to your suite or stateroom, you immediately understand why our White Star Service is so rightly lauded. In fact, during your time aboard, you’ll notice how the crew strive to remember those details that make such a difference – such as your dining requests or how you prefer your drink served. This famed hospitality includes the indulgent daily ritual of Afternoon Tea, served by white-gloved waiters and accompanied by pastries and cucumber sandwiches.

You’ll also find that our ships are extremely sociable settings, and a ‘Welcome Cocktail Party’ will be the first of many fabulous occasions on board. Indeed lasting friendships are often forged during forays ashore, daytime activities, elegant soirees and the keenly anticipated gala balls. Of course, should you wish, there is also plenty of opportunity to find a quiet spot and relax.

As evening falls, expectation rises. Tonight’s mouthwatering dining occasion promises another sensational culinary adventure, enhanced with a superb wine selection and – no doubt – convivial conversation. Indeed, guests frequently cite the standards of cuisine on our ships as a major reason for returning again and again.

Your table is reserved every evening in the one of three elegant main restaurants. You are also free to explore an array of tempting alternative dining options too, from formal venues to casual offerings and light bites.
