Traveling on a Cunard Line cruise may be one of the best luxury cruising experiences around. The British company is iconic and world renowned for offering the height of sophistication when it comes to cruising. Add to that the company has been established for over one and a half centuries and you might think there was nothing more to add. However, here are three things that you should also know about traveling on Cunard Line in 2018.
1) Enrichment programs on board – these include the likes of NASA astronauts, British actor, comedian and polar explorer John Cleese and other quality celebrities and well know people.
