For over a century and a half, the iconic ships of Cunard have been defining sophisticated ocean travel. They have always been The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the World.
From fabled vessels of the past to her present royal court - Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth - Cunard has carried guests across the great oceans and to the far points of the globe in unparalleled style. The most glamorous names of yesterday and today have made champagne toasts in our salons, waltzed the night away in her grand ballrooms, savoured grand feasts of the finest flavours in elegant dining rooms, restaurants and cafes, and whiled away hours immersed in fascinating conversation on our many decks, bars, lounges and pubs.
We invite you to take your place in the rich heritage of ocean travel, and write your own classic adventure tale. Join us and let us arrange and book your journey on the legendary luxury ocean liners of Cunard.
Children at least six months of age are welcome on Europe cruises, except Icelandic sailings where the minimum age is one year. For North America and Canada cruises, the minimum age is six months. For Transatlantic Crossings, Transpacific sailings, World, Exotic and Caribbean voyages, the minimum age is one year. Cunard offers a full children’s programme, from nursery to teens, so families can share this special journey together.
Cunard provide supervised activities for children aged two to 17 years throughout the day as well as free group supervision in the evening. Cunard ships are excellent family destinations, because Cunard offer a range of entertainment and activities for children, all of which is tailored to suit specific age groups. Cunard children’s clubs — The Play Zone, The Zone and The Teen Zone — are complimentary and offer the peace of mind of knowing that your children are well looked after and can socialise with other young people.
These clubs are open on a daily basis and feature secure entry systems to allow authorised entry. There are ‘sign in’ and ‘sign out’ procedures for the 2-12-year old’s, including a registration form which must be completed for every child before they attend the programme. Cunard recommends that you attend one of the initial registration sessions on embarkation day, so your child can be registered from the first session.
On all Cunard ships they offer a night nursery for children aged six months to 23 months, which is available from 6.00pm to 11.00pm. Staff will give you a pager should they need to contact you. The night nursery is free of charge and is offered on a first come, first served basis.
A child travelling as the second guest in a stateroom requires payment of the published per-person fare. In order to provide adequate activities and facilities for the younger guests, the number of children on a specific cruise may be limited; please contact Cunard for details. Guests under the age of 18 are not permitted to gamble or enter the casino. Guests who are under 18 years of age are not permitted to purchase or consume alcohol on board. While in U.S. waters, Cunard Line enforces and abides by the U.S. legal drinking age of 21 years.
During your cruise, you will receive service from many members of the staff in a variety of locations. For your convenience a gratuity will be added to your shipboard account on a daily basis for each guest (including children). The gratuity will be shared amongst those staff that helped provide and support your cruise experience, including the restaurant staff, stateroom stewards and accommodation staff, buffet stewards and others. Casino personnel and youth staff do not share in the gratuity as not all guests utilise this service. Please note, this is a suggested gratuity and, should you wish to remove it or make any adjustments, you may contact the Purser’s Desk before the end of the cruise.
*Charges may vary or change without notice.
A 15% gratuity is added to your bar charges and dining room wine account. This is shared amongst the beverage staff and their support staff.
No person younger than 18 years of age is allowed to purchase or consume alcohol on a Cunard cruise. When in U.S. territorial waters where the legal drinking age is 21, no one under the age of 21 may purchase or drink alcohol.
You may bring wine or champagne on board to celebrate special occasions. However, if it is consumed in any of the dining rooms, alternative restaurants or bars then each bottle will be subject to a corkage fee.
One of the real pleasures of Cunard ships is the balance between being relaxed and free to dress as you please during the day and the chance to sparkle in the evenings, whether dressing for dinner or the extra glamour of Gala nights.
During the day, feel free to relax and dress as you please in all areas of the ship. Then as the sun goes down, the style goes up. Every night on board, Cunard asks that you wear smart attire in most of Cunard bars, restaurants and entertainment venues.
On Cunard much-loved Gala evenings, which are the highlight of the voyage for many, Cunard invites you to dress to impress as the celebratory atmosphere and sense of occasion is heightened across the ship. There are two or three of these special Gala evenings for every seven days of the voyage. Of course, if you prefer to spend your evenings in more relaxed attire, a selection of casual dining and entertainment venues are always available for your enjoyment.
Guests who will enter the 24th week of pregnancy by the last day of the Voyage agree not to book the Voyage or to board the vessel.
