Cunard Line proudly continues a tradition of luxury cruising that began in 1840. Today its flagship, Queen Elizabeth 2, is the worlds 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. QE2 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 2000, QE2 is joined by another classic liner, Caronia, formerly known as Vistafjord, which also delivers an elegant, Old World cruising experience. Whether on voyages or cruises, these two Cunard Line vessels create a new golden age of ocean liner travel, for those who missed the first.
