Cunard Line is the last of the great transatlantic shipping companies, and its 2,620-passenger flagship--the Queen Mary 2--is the newest of Cunard's legendary ocean liners.

The QM2, which entered Cunard's fleet in 2004, is a worthy successor to the Queen Elizabeth 2, which plied the Southampton-New York route for more than three decades.

Two newer cruise ships, the Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, entered service in 2007 and 2010 respectively.

In 2020, Cunard continues to offer a full schedule of transatlantic crossings on Queen Mary 2, along with several dozen European cruises on both the QM2 and Queen Victoria. (On the transatlantic route, the majority of crossings are between New York and Southampton, with some voyages adding Hamburg to the itinerary.)
