Voyages Cruise Guide – What’s Inside:

Voyages by U.S. Tours presents its 20-page inaugural guide to cruise opportunities on the oceans and rivers of the world. This new division of respected operator U.S. Tours aims to become “group cruise central” for professional tour planners. In the guide, profiles of 10 partner lines provide highlights of each cruise company and suggested voyages. These partners include Celebrity, Costa, Cunard, Holland America, Princess and Royal Caribbean, plus small-ship lines AmaWaterways, American Queen Steamboat, Seabourn and Victory. From beginning to end, Voyages by U.S. Tours handles all the details of planning a cruise, including collecting deposits and final payments, coordinating schedules, getting documents, arranging for special side trips and just going to bat for you should a problem arise. Its dedicated group department also can offer complimentary meeting space on the ship if needed and coordinate any special events you might wish to include.

One of the most storied names in shipping, Cunard Line continues a 178-year tradition operating Atlantic crossings and offers cruises in all parts of the world.

Fleet size

Cunard operates three large luxury ships: Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.


Cunard is the only line to offer regularly scheduled trans-Atlantic service between New York and Europe. It operates cruises in Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, New England/Canada, Alaska, Asia, Australia, South America and Africa.

Discernible differencesCunard Queen Mary

Cunard’s appeal is a combination of British elegance, high levels of service, gourmet dining and world-class entertainment. All three Queens offer luxury accommodations, including the renowned Grill Suites. Cunard attracts an international mix of passengers with nearly 50 percent coming from markets outside the UK.

Group policies

Group space is available for a minimum of five double-occupancy cabins. Cunard offers guaranteed space, group savings, earned tour conductor berths and guest amenities.

What’s new

All three ships have undergone extensive refits, including the 2016 remastering of the Queen Mary 2 that added new dining and lounge areas, and new and refurbished staterooms. Cunard is also expanding its destinations, including Alaska cruises in 2019 and new voyages to the Norwegian fjords, Japan and Australia in 2020. The line will be unveiling a new ship in 2022.
