CUNARD LINE has operated four of the most famous Ocean Liner in the World



The driving force of the CUNARD LINE when first established was the mail contract, the emphasis quickly moved to the vast number of emigrants that in the second half of the 19th Century and early years of the 20th departed Europe to North America. CUNARD has operated many legendary Liners, four of the most prestigious are the QUEEN ELIZABETH, QUEEN MARY, QE2 and QM2. Today with the 2004 built QUEEN MARY 2, CUNARD is still the only shipping company to offer a regular transatlantic service between Europe and North America, with regular departures from Southampton, also recently extended to Hamburg to New York.
