Top 5 Reasons to Choose a Cunard Cruise

Top 5 Reasons to Choose a Cunard Cruise

Cruising on a Cunard Ship


There are a whole host of first-class cruise lines operating across the globe, making it even more difficult to know which one to choose for your next cruise vacation. Because we partner with some of the very best cruise lines, our expert travel advisors can customize the perfect voyage for you. 

Every cruise line has its own specific benefits and features, which is why we’re giving you our top five reasons to choose a Cunard cruise.


1 – Ships Built for Ocean Crossings

Unlike many ships built to sail in the smoother waters of the Caribbean, Mediterranean and along the shores of Alaska and New England, the Cunard ships are built to sail the seven seas, making them a favorite for those concerned with motion discomfort or rough weather. Due to their deeper drafts, there is minimal impact to the onboard vacation experience when the seas get rough, a storm comes up, or you are crossing during months where the weather could be more challenging. Cunard ships are also built with plenty of indoor space for the same reason. You can spend days exploring and enjoying the stunning libraries, spacious spas, art collections, and boutiques without ever stepping outside, making them the ideal ships for the transatlantic crossings and world cruises offered.  


2 – The Best Afternoon Tea at Sea

No one does high tea like the Brits and being a British cruise line certainly gives Cunard the edge in this department — it is offered every day, even on port days. It’s an opportunity to steal a few minutes away to listen to a harpist, finish the last few pages of a great book with a cup of tea by your side, catch up with a loved one for some one-on one uninterrupted time, or just take in the view of the sea each day.  The variety of teas is always good but the tiered tray of tea sandwiches, treats, and the clotted cream and scones is a meal in itself. 


3 – Broadway-caliber shows & a variety of entertainment each day

Prepare to be wowed when you travel with Cunard, where evening entertainment is delivered to the high standards you only usually expect on Broadway. Whether you’re a fan of theatrical shows, dance productions or international cabaret acts, you’ll never be bored. Take to the ballroom for sequence dancing, enjoy gala evenings or enjoy the latest blockbuster movie, it’s all up to you and how you most want to spend your time.


4 – Great for Singles

Besides having had a history of accommodations just for Solo Travelers that vary from budget to spacious suites, the Cunard experience is ideal for the single traveler wanting to enjoy a cruise vacation.  While open dining may sound great for a couple, solo travelers get to know other travelers best through assigned dining tables and times for dinner.  In addition, Cunard still offers designated male escorts, many of whom are retired from other careers, whose job includes hosting tables at dinner and accompanying women on the dance floor who may be traveling alone or with a partner who does not dance.  


5 – Once-in-a-lifetime experiences

A vacation is made in the experiences you undertake, enriching your time spent in your chosen destination. Cunard is unrivaled when it comes to creating memories that will last a lifetime, whether it’s that great theme cruise that aligns with your passion, specially guided tours that go beyond the usual schedule, or other bespoke experiences unique to each port of call on a world cruise.


Choose your destination

With so much to enjoy on the ships themselves, you might be forgiven for temporarily forgetting the destination. With Cunard, you can sail away to another world, experiencing not only the luxury of their ships but also some of the greatest sights in your chosen destination. From the cuisine that gives you the flavor of the destination – in the truest sense of the word – to onshore excursions, there is no better way to see the world.

At Accent on Travel, our experience is that Cunard cruises are the best choice for the following destinations and experiences:

  • World Cruises
  • Transatlantic Crossings
  • New England Cruises

Whether your ideal cruise involves exploring and getting closer to the culture of your chosen destination or you want to view the majestic sights from the comfort of your balcony on the ship, we make it all possible. Speak to us about your dream destination and let us take care of the rest.

When you’re taking a voyage across the ocean, there are few better ways to do so than with the four-ship fleet of Cunard. The red and black funnels make this fleet instantly recognizable around the world, evoking a bygone era while delivering modern luxuries and a classic elegance onboard each of their royally named ships:

  • Queen Elizabeth
  • Queen Victoria
  • Queen Mary 2
  • Queen Anne

The Queen Anne is due to set sail in 2024, with 14 decks and a capacity of over 3,000 guests. With a blend of the contemporary and the classic, she will offer unparalleled levels of comfort and luxury. 

Whether you want to plan ahead with a booking for the Queen Anne, or set sail sooner on any of the other ships in this majestic fleet, speak to our expert travel advisors and we’ll customize your vacation down to the very last detail.
