Queen Elizabeth’s New Look by Cunard

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

The already stunning Queen Elizabeth has been refurbished after only four years of sailing. Cunard really listened to their guests’ response on what could be enhanced aboard Queen Elizabeth. She was dry docked in Hamburg for 20 days, where routine maintenance and several enhancements were completed. Cunard planned these refurbishments and new designs for over 18 months, and now the revitalized Queen Elizabeth is sailing with her fresh makeover. Some of the new enhancements include: nine single cabins (a brand new concept to Cunard), new mattresses in all of the staterooms, brand new flat screen TVs in all of the staterooms, new carpeting throughout the ship and shaded cabana areas by the pool for guests.

Queen Elizabeth is Cunard’s newest luxury liner, named in 2010 by Her Majesty the Queen. Recalling the rich heritage of the first Cunarder to bear the name, her elegance and modern features have won her many accolades and made her a firm favorite with her passengers. Some of her many unique features include: The Royal Spa, The Royal Arcade, Games Deck, The Garden Lounge, Queens Room and The Verandah, to name a few.

To sail on the refurbished Queen Elizabeth, call one of our Cunard experts at 1-800-377-9383 today!

What’s So Special About Specialty Cruising?

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a specialty as something that a person or place is known for making or producing well. We think everyone has a hidden specialty, something that makes you stand out. You might have a specialty in baking chocolate chip cookies, or perhaps you have a certain way around car engines. Cruise lines also have their own specialties, and we set a few aside that put extra emphasis on that specialty and make it an interesting aspect of your cruise.

We’ll break these specialties down into three main categories: river cruising, onboard experience and expedition cruising.

1) River Cruising

There are river cruises, which are cruises that sail on the world’s rivers and offer interesting insights into the culture of the towns and cities that line each river’s banks. Because of the rivers’ sizes and lock systems, river ships are much smaller than ocean vessels. These smaller ships offer travelers an intimate experience that in many cases affords them the chance to discover cultural traditions and customs that are not widely known. For instance, during the holiday season these ships arrange for you to attend various Christmas Markets in Europe, where handmade goods are sold by local artisans and crafters. River cruise lines like Avalon Waterways, Viking River Cruises and Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection all differ in the itineraries and experiences they deliver, but all specialize in river cruising.

Cunard Line: A Tradition of Royalty

By Austin Gambino, The Cruise Web, Inc.

London OlympicsAs the Olympics press on, we felt it appropriate to discuss another London tradition of success: the Cunard Line.  Cunard has been connected with Great Britain since its inception in 1840, when it was named the British & North American Royal Mail Steam-Packet Company, which is a bit verbose and may explain the name change.  It is now British-American owned, and operated by Carnival UK.
