  • 175 Years of Cunard

    Celebrating 175 years of the iconic Cunard Line, the world's most famous shipping companyThroughout 175 years, Cunard has been instrumental in creating the American dream, transporting millions of immigrants to the new world. During both world wars, the Cunard ships answered the call of duty and transported thousands of troops to fight on the sides of the allies. After the Great Depression, Cunard merged with the famous White Star Line to form Cunard-White Star. Cunard’s QE2 was a much-beloved liner and the most famous ship at sea, sailing more than 2.5 million miles during a 40-year career. Today the three current Queens are a celebration of Cunard’s heritage. This book traces, through unique photographs and easily accessible narrative, the 175-year history of Cunard Line.

  • Maritime Royalty: The Queen Mary and the Cunard Queens

    2016 will be the 80th anniversary of the maiden voyage of one of the greatest of all ocean liners. The QUEEN MARY, constructed in the 1930s, sailed until 1967 and today lives on as a museum & hotel in southern California, is also one of the most famous ocean liners of all time. She was also heroic, serving valiantly in wartime, and altogether crossed the Atlantic more than 1000 times. Also, she was beloved – favored by passengers and crew alike. Hollywood stars, as another example, just preferred the QUEEN MARY. She had an undefinable chemistry—"Something in the woodwork that embraced everyone," according to one staff member. She was also part of Cunard, perhaps the most famous shipping line on the Atlantic. Along with a history of the QUEEN MARY, this book will look at her running-mate, the QUEEN ELIZABETH, as well as the subsequent QUEENS—the QE2 and the current day QUEEN MARY 2, QUEEN VICTORIA & QUEEN ELIZABETH. This book will be a salute to the QUEEN MARY, but also to the great QUEENS and to Cunard itself.

  • Cunard Cruise Ships

    The Cunard Line’s Britannia was the first steamship to establish regular communication across the Atlantic. She sailed on her maiden voyage on 4 July 1840, setting in motion the first regular steamship line. Iron supplanted wood in hull construction and the screw propeller was gradually replacing the paddle wheel. The line became a public company in 1878 and became the Cunard Steam Ship Company Ltd. The construction of many famous ships such as Mauretania, Lusitania, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth followed, and the company continued to trade in profit until the introduction of the jet aircraft in the 1960s and 1970s. Following various restructuring and takeovers, the Cunard Line was acquired by the Carnival Corporation and now offers cruises on the Three Queens. Utilising many rare and unpublished images, Ian Collard offers a superbly illustrated look at the cruise ships operated by Cunard. Included here are images of the ships in many guises and liveries, with comprehensive annotation of these iconic liners.
