SHIPS

From state rooms for solo travellers to children clubs, Cunard have it all. Click on a ship’s banner below to see the films available.

This was a popular class of ship built between 2001 and 2010 and comes in may forms, from the Arcadia to the Queen Victoria at Cunard. The class being lead by the H&A ship MS Zuiderdam in 2002. The Spirit and Radiance class ships are similar. What varies is the inside which the Arcadia and Queen Victoria together can show. When the Arcadia was being built it had no central ballroom, which is why is was moved away from being the Queen Victoria and another was ordered with the ballroom interior. Amazing how the same ship can be so different. They are all around 290 meters, 1850 to 2350 guests, these are Panamax cruise ships, almost liners. To confuse matters Carnival now have a new Vista Class (Carnival).
