Maybe it is our European heritage? Our love for all things British? Our fondness of things that start with a Q? Whatever it is, at Q Cruise + Travel we have a soft spot for the three Queens of Cunard Line, resulting in our Certified Cunard Expert status.
It shows: Cunard Line named Q Cruise + Travel in Chicago (formerly Cruise Holidays Chicago on Magnificent Mile) to its exclusive Inner Circle group of travel agencies each of the last 8 years. We are one of Cunard’s highest producers in North America and one of a very select group of travel agencies invited when Her Majesty the Queen named Cunard Line’s newest ocean liner, the Queen Elizabeth in Southampton, England. Cunard also invited our certified Cunard Commodore experts to inspect Queen Mary 2 following her “remastering”, the extensive update this magnificent ocean liner underwent in the summer of 2016.
Why does that matter? Few travel agents, let alone call center agents, can match our first-hand knowledge and expertise of Cunard Line. We have personally sailed on Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, in rooms varying from Inside and Balcony through the exclusive Princess Grill and Queens Grill suites. All our team members are certified Cunard Commodore experts. And finally, we offer additional amenities and spending credits on many Cunard sailings.
After celebrating its 175th anniversary in 2015, Cunard Line continues to proudly honor its cherished British heritage. You’ll enjoy grand experiences aboard modern ocean liners that pay homage to the golden age of ocean travel. Set sail from iconic ports and enjoy the sense of occasion as you prepare for a Royal Night-themed ball. Partake in the tradition of English tea every afternoon in the Queens Room, or have a pint in the English pub.
During the day, relax in the spa, learn to tango, work up an appetite in the gym or enjoy a morning walk around the ship on the traditional teakwood promenade deck. On Queen Mary 2’s Transatlantic Crossings, you’ll have the opportunity to attend workshops and presentations by a multitude of celebrated speakers – authors, astronauts, politicians, actors and historians. Taking it easy? Enjoy the great line of shops, play cards, read in the largest library at sea or simply watch the world go by.
At night, depending on the accommodation you selected, you’ll dine in the Britannia Restaurant, the Britannia Club, Princess Grill or the pinnacle of them all: the Queens Grill restaurant. Enjoy a show in the theatre, dance the night away on the biggest dance floor at sea or in a night club or tempt Lady Luck in the casino.
Whatever you do, it is no wonder that a Cunard Line Transatlantic Crossing or cruise is on so many people’s bucket list.
Cunard’s itineraries can be subdivided into three main groups:
As a Cunard Inner Circle top agency, we are happy to offer our clients additional onboard credits and reduced deposits on most Cunard cruises during our (almost) monthly Cunard Sale Event.
This credit can amount to up to $300 per room or suite extra to spend onboard during your cruise or Transatlantic Crossing. The amount varies based on the length of your sailing and the type of room or suite booked. In addition, we will waive the deposit for the second guest. (Note that our sale event benefits are not combinable with extra-low Cunard Flash Fares and certain other rates or promotions.)
