Cunard is one of the oldest and most venerable names in
the passenger ship industry. It was the first line to do
regularly scheduled transatlantic service beginning in 1840.
Since then, Cunard has operated a series of ships that not
only were famous in their own times but which have
become legends including LUSITANIA, QUEEN MARY,
QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 and now QUEEN MARY 2.
Very mindful of this heritage, the Cunard ships of today
seek to provide a sophisticated ocean going experience.
Rooted in tradition, there are many aspects of a Cunard
voyage that are reminiscent of the "Golden Age of Ocean
Travel." However, these ships are not pastiches of a
bygone era. They are full of modern amenities and have
grown with the times.
Passengers on a Cunard voyage tend to be sophisticated
and well-educated. They seek an atmosphere that is more
attuned to intellectual and cultural pursuits rather than
physical activity or partying.
"THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE LUSITANIA" - - In May
1915, a German submarine sank the pride of the Cunard
Fleet, the liner LUSITANIA. This tragedy set in motion
events that led to America's entry into World War I, thus
changing the course of world events.
