Take advantage of Cunards 175th birthday celebrations

Jun 5 2015

The year 1840 was a momentous one for the cruise-line industry as Cunard released its first ship, The Britannia. Since its epic maiden voyage with 115 passengers, 86 crew members, 600 tons of coal, Atlantic mail, chickens, a cow for milk and 3 cats to keep the rats at bay, the cruise-line has been delivering five star traditional services to thousands of happy cruisers.

Queen Victoria - The mother of all cruise ships
The Queen Victoria is one of the longest running ships in Cunards fleet. She has an ambience of splendour and luxury reminiscent of decades past, yet provides her guests with all of the modern amenities anyone could hope for.

You’ll love spending your afternoons enjoying a traditional white gloved tea service in the Queens Room, or enjoying a sophisticated and excellently choreographed show in the Royal Court Theatre. Perhaps a relaxing and soothing spa treatment in the Royal Spa would be a good idea, before dinner in one of the magnificent and renowned Cunard restaurants. After a long day of cruising excitement, your home away from home in the lavish state rooms or deluxe Queens Grill Duplex with its balconies and butler service will be a welcome retreat.
