A cruise with Cunard evokes a long maritime history and an imitable reputation that provides you with an unmissable voyage. Queen Mary 2 is the flagship of Cunard's fleet. Her impeccable service, elegant staterooms and traditional yet contemporary environment set the standard in the world of cruising.
Cunard's renowned White Star Service means that you receive the best in hospitality alongside plenty of space, high-quality décor and modern facilities to make each journey enjoyable.

Experience virtual rides into outer space at the ship's full-scale planetarium, watch West End style shows at Royal Court Theatre, and enjoy dancing and cocktail evenings at the large and elegant ballroom.
Relax in luxury on Queen Mary 2 and let Cunard take care of you.
Britannia Restaurant provides an exquisite gourmet menu and impeccable level of service for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The neighbouring Britannia Club Restaurant is just as grand, but offers a more intimate dining experience. Menus here include salmon and shrimp ceviche, spaghetti carbonera, broiled lobster tail, and mango and passionfruit crème brûlée. Queens Grill Restaurant — reserved for guests staying in a Queens Grill Suite — features an incredibly personal service and dining times of your choice. Dine at Princess Grill Restaurant for dishes such as pan-roasted halibut, duck a l'orange and lobster with a selection of fine wines.

Queen Mary 2 has a venue to suit quiet after-dinner cocktails, refreshing afternoon teas and celebratory glasses of champagne. Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar is a highlight for any voyage on Queen Mary 2 that offers guests seven diverse champagnes accompanied by luxury caviar. Overlooking the bow of the ship is Commodore Club where you can relax with your favourite tipple watching the sunsets. The extensive menu here includes: run cocktails, classic gins, signature martinis, premium vodkas, and exclusive daiquiris. Why not try the Martini Mixology or Whisky Tasting classes on offer here, too? Head to the Golden Lion Pub for a traditional English atmosphere. On offer here you have ales, lagers, ciders, spirits, wines, darts, karaoke, live sports, and classic pub lunches including cottage pie and fish and chips.
While at sea, you can enjoy fitness classes, swimming, golfing, shuffleboard, and tennis. Make the most of the workshops available from the Insights Programme which features world-renowned guest speakers and RADA stage performers. Children can attend the kids' clubs while you relax with a massage, facial or sauna at Canyon Ranch SpaClub. Admire outer space at the planetarium, read at the library, and shop at a range of luxury boutiques on board, too.
Evenings bring live music across the ship — including a pianist in Commodore Club, a jazz band in Chart Room and a string quartet in Queens Room. The Queens Room also has a large dance floor featuring professional dance lessons. End your day at G32 nightclub — with themed music from the 60s, 70s and 80s — or try something more relaxing with a show at Royal Court Theatre or game of poker at the casino.

Day 5: Road Town, Tortola
Rich in history and old-world Caribbean charm, Road Town – the capital of the British Virgin Islands - is the perfect place to spend the day. Visit the historic Sunday Morning Well where the 'Proclamation of Emancipation' - giving freedom from slavery - was read in 1834. Explore the shops and eateries on Main Street or pick up locally-made crafts by the waterfront. Taste authentic Caribbean rum cocktails at the legendary Pusser's Bar or unwind on the powder-white sand of Cane Garden Bay. Discover colourful exotic plants at JR O'Neal Botanic Gardens or join a hiking trip to Sage Mountain National Park. A short boat trip to view The Baths rock formations on Virgin Gorda's north shore is a must-do, too.

The capital of Dominica, Roseau, is a small and compact urban settlement off the coast of the Caribbean Sea. Head to the historical French Quarter where the streets are lined with graceful wooden buildings housing vibrant bars, restaurants and shops. View the Cathedral of Our Lady of Fair Haven of Roseau, one of the most beautiful structures in Dominica, and shop for souvenirs at the Old Market. Escape to the tranquil Dominica Botanic Gardens or step back in time at Dominica Museum. Venture further afield to Morne Trois Pitons National Park to see Bolling Lake, Victoria Waterfall, Trafalgar Falls, Middleham Falls, Emerald Pool, Titou Gorge and the Valley of Desolation.
Day 7: Bridgetown, Barbados
It's easy to see why Barbados is known as 'Little England' with its Georgian houses, Lord Nelson Statue and Parliament Square. Indulge in retail therapy on Broad Street, admire stunning views and rugged island landscapes on a jeep island safari, or visit the dramatic stalactites and stalagmites of Harrison's Cave. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience - sail on a catamaran to swim with once-endangered hawksbill and green sea turtles.

Arrive in St. Lucia and experience some of the Caribbean's most dramatic scenery. The island's natural landscape features the majestic Piton Mountains, pristine beaches lined with palm trees and miles of unspoiled rainforest.

St. Kitts is renowned for its rainforest mountains and picturesque beaches with white, grey and black sands.
