Cunard Line – Passenger Class
Cunard Line continues the tradition of luxury cruising by passenger class. “First Class” is a term with meaning on the Cunard line. Passengers are segregated by Queens Grill Suites, Princess Grill Suites, Britannia Club and Britannia Staterooms. Each class has private lounges, sun deck areas and separate dining rooms. The menus are nearly identical between classes, but with a few subtle differences. Cunard is one of the few cruise lines with staterooms for singles.
Cunard Line – Ships & Destinations
There are 3 ships in the Cunard fleet: the Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mary 2 and the the Queen Victoria. These ships travel the globe, so you will need to plan far in advance if you have specific destinations in mind. Extended days at sea are common.
