Cunard Line proudly continues a tradition of luxury cruising that began in 1840. Today its flagship, Queen Mary 2, is the world¹s most famous ship and the greatest liner of her time. She maintains the legacy of her Cunard and White Star Line predecessors in providing a definitive annual World Cruise and the only scheduled transatlantic liner service. QM2 very much sets the standard of traditional British elegance, superb White Star Service, gourmet cuisine and sumptuous accommodations that have secured Cunard's reputation. In 2010, QM2 is joined by another classic liner, Queen Elizabeth, which also delivers an elegant, Old World cruising experience. Whether on voyages or cruises, these three Cunard Line vessels create a new golden age of ocean liner travel, for those who missed the first.
Cunard Line, one of the world's most recognized brand names with a classic British heritage, is operated by Miami-based Cunard Line Limited, which also operates Seabourn Cruise Line. Cunard Line Limited is a unit of Carnival Corporation (NYSE:CCL).The Seabourn fleet includes Seabourn Sun, Seabourn Pride, Spirit and Legend and Seabourn Goddess I & II.

Together, these member lines share a commitment to quality and value, offering cruise vacations that appeal to the widest range of lifestyles and budgets and sail to some of the world's most exciting destinations. Cunard Line and Seabourn Cruise Line represent nearly 50 percent of the world's luxury cruise market.
The "six star" Cunard Cruise line represents the ultra-deluxe
segment of the cruise business, but unlike most Luxury Cruise Lines is
not a small ship operator. Instead the ships are designed to replace the ocean liners of old. As the Captain of the QE2 put it:" We are not a cruise ship but we are an ocean liner". Onboard enrichment lectures and the overall design of the ships atest to this fact. The Cruise Line offer a noticeably
more elevated level of service than the regular five- star cruises
but also tend to be the most expensive cruise. They are definitely
not mass market. Exceptional service, elegant and refined ambiance,
extra attention to passenger comfort and satisfaction, larger food
budgets, a very high level of ship's maintenance, and more inclusive
pricing are some of the hallmarks of the six-star Cunard lines
