Cunard's ships have been crossing the Atlantic to New York since 1840, when the first and only regular transoceanic service was established.

The world's only ocean liner.

Not only is Cunard a unique experience, Queen Mary 2 is also a unique ship: today's only true ocean liner. Stronger, sleeker, smoother and swifter than a cruise ship. A link to a glorious past only Cunard can provide.
