With state of the art facilities and an emphasis on the services of a bygone era of cruising, Cunard enables guests to enjoy a classic travel experience with a contemporary twist.

Exceptional Dining

Restaurants and bars abound on board; from world class dining in the Grills Restaurants to the classic grandeur of Britannia Restaurant and of course Cunard’s famous Afternoon Tea.

There are many alternative restaurants whose specialities run from Asian fusion to Italian to pub classics, and where the cuisine is never less than outstanding.


Bars range from the wonderfully authentic Golden Lion Pub to the sophisticated Commodore Club. Treat yourself to one of Cunard’s famous martinis or one of the fine wines from around the world, hand-picked by Cunard’s expert Sommeliers.

White Star Service

Cunard is synonymous with elegance, luxury and its renowned White Star Service.

Cunard prides itself on standards of service that go above and beyond, exceeding the expectations of all guests. You’ll experience this the moment you step on board when the white-gloved officers and crew greet you with a smile and warm welcome. From then on you’ll notice that every detail of your cruise has been carefully considered to make sure you have the most enjoyable, memorable and luxurious experience aboard The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the World.

Leisure Activities

Stroll beside the sea on the Promenade Deck – perhaps you’ll spot a dolphin or two or simply people watch from the comfort of a poolside hot tub.

For some quiet time, lose yourself in any of the 6 000 books in the largest libraries at sea, housing impressive collections in a serene and stately ambience.

Tempt Lady Luck at the Gaming Tables and slot machines of the Empire Casino or if you are not sure how to play then take part in complimentary gaming lessons.

Enrichment Programmes & Guest speakers - meeting experts and celebrities can be a memorable part of your cruise. Cunard has welcomed famous authors, actors, film-makers, politicians, explorers, scientists, historians and legendary sports stars. They’ve been invited to inform and entertain you as part of CUNARD INSIGHTS with talks on contemporary issues by well-known celebrities and personalities.

Elegant Evenings

Evenings on board offer so many pleasures.
Deciding where to dine, choosing whether to dance, mingle or take in a show.
And then there’s the fun of dressing for the occasion.

Formal nights usually involve a captain’s cocktail party or themed Ball. For the other, non-Formal evenings the dress code is smart yet relaxed – think jackets but no ties and cocktail dresses. Passengers who prefer to dine more casually are always welcome to dine in the Lido restaurants or Kings Court and to unwind in the evening in the Winter Garden or Garden Lounge.

Cunard ships offer some of the largest and grandest dance floors at sea. Dance the night away to live music. The “Royal Nights” on board are themed Balls, which revive swing, tango, and Latin dancing to the accompaniment of live big bands.

The full-size Royal Court Theatres are the setting for West End-calibre shows. Some nights feature singers or comedians; other nights you might catch a classical drama or high-stepping musical. The choice is yours.

On board shopping

Enjoy extraordinary shopping from top boutiques and brands such as Harrods and H.Stern, providing a range of products from tempting souvenirs and gifts to designer clothing and handbags, in addition to exquisite jewellery and high fashion.

Health & Wellbeing

Well-appointed fitness hubs and gyms help keep you in shape. Experienced personal trainers are also available. You may wish to perfect some of your stretches on the yoga mats, or just pretend you’re walking on water, as you exercise on sea-view treadmills. For those preferring to take in the fresh ocean air, there’s the option of a walk or jog around the promenade deck.

There are plenty of choices to keep you active. From fitness classes, sports tournaments and deck games such as bowls, croquet and paddle tennis to a choice of swimming pools and whirlpool spas.

When you really want to indulge, spend the day pampering yourself in the spa with a hot stone massage or enjoy the deep cleanse of an organic seaweed wrap; beautifully appointed treatment rooms and relaxation areas with views to get lost in. Or simply pop in for a manicure or hair cut and styling.
