• In 2004, Queen Mary 2 featured the first planetarium at sea.

The fleet.

The Cunard Fleet today consists of Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, and are more famous than Cunard itself. They are instantly recognisable with their distinctive red and black funnels.
It's also one of the youngest fleets in the world meaning the liners are modern and up to date, whilst simultaneously celebrating days gone by.
Queen Mary 2 is the world’s only true ocean liner. She is also the only ship to offer a regular Transatlantic service.
