Cunard Line is a subsidiary of the British-American Carnival Corporation, based in Southampton, England. The ships cruise to a number of locations around the world, including the Mediterranean and Caribbean, North America and Europe.

There are currently three luxury ships in Cunard's fleet - the Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth.
Each ship gives customers the option of staying in Queens or Princess Grill suites, or the Britannia suite with a balcony or ocean view. The Queens Grill is the ultimate luxury accommodation, featuring 2,249-square-feet of space, welcome champagne and strawberries, personal butler service and access to a private lounge.
While all of the suites have room service as an option, each ship has its own choices when it comes to dining. Those aboard Queen Mary 2 can choose from a Todd English restaurant, the Boardwalk Cafe, Sir Samuel's, Golden Lion and several bars and lounges; Queen Victoria passengers can dine at Lido Restaurant, the Courtyard and Cafe Corinthia; and travelers on Queen Elizabeth can visit the Queens Room and the Verandah.
As for entertainment options, there are a number of children's activities, as well as spa treatments, golf courses, dance performances, theater and concerts. Each ship features a specialized area for passengers ages 1 to 12, where they can spend time making arts and crafts or playing board games and sports.
Daytime activities include afternoon tea, casino games, garden parties, film screenings, dance classes and much more. In the evening, passengers can test their knowledge with a pub quiz, sing karaoke, see a live classical concert or head to the Garden Lounge for the Supper Club.
Cunard also caters to those who are looking for an educational experience on their cruise with "unard Insights." The enrichment program features explorers, academics, ambassadors, politicians, novelists and more who speak about historical and contemporary issues. There is also the Cunard Book Club, which gives passengers the chance to have thought-provoking discussions of literature. Travelers can check with the cruise line before the voyage to see which books will be discussed during the voyage so that they can be prepared for the meeting.
