We Are Cunard

I write this a couple of days before Christmas from a very cold Southampton, England – where it seems that Santa’s Sleigh is the only the way to get around. Our little Island has been brought to a standstill by a cold snap and a rather embarrassing inability for Heathrow Airport to clear a few inches of snow.
Our three ships are full to the gunnels and off on their Christmas Voyages with Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth in the Caribbean and Queen Victoria in The Canaries. So on board we are preparing to give over 6,000 of our valued guests a wonderful Cunard Christmas.
This morning I sent a message to every member of our Ship’s Company and I thought our bloggers may find that interesting so I have inserted it below:
I really mean it when I say that the success of Cunard Line is down to those wonderful people who work so hard on our ships. But of course I must give equal recognition to our loyal guests. The last year has been the most successful in our long history with the introduction of Queen Elizabeth. All of us at Cunard have enjoyed seeing so many of our loyal guests on board but have also enjoyed many thousands of guests to Cunard Line for the first time.
So as we head towards Christmas – very warm season’s greetings from all of us at Cunard both to our valued guests and to the readers of our award winning blog. It has been a vintage year with lot’s of exciting happenings across the fleet and I will share my highlights with you in our New Year blog next week.
For now – wrap up warm wherever you are and enjoy a well deserved rest with your friends and family over the festive period. I shall be at home with my wife, daughters and trusty black Labrador Pepper.
