Cunard Line: Then & Now

While enjoying a recent transatlantic crossing aboard Queen Mary 2, author and travel writer Robert Bone remembered that he and Cunard Line go way back—in fact, more than 50 years.

In the days before stabilizers, Bone reminisces, "I sailed from New York City to England aboard a smoky, coal-burning 35-year-old Cunard ship named the RMS Scythia. Comfort was minimal, and though it took nine days to sail to Liverpool, I loved every minute of it. Truly, I wished it had taken longer."

Take a look at how Cunard played a crucial role in shaping a young American's life and what's changed at sea aboard Cunard liners since 1957. Illustrated by his personal photos, is proud to share the story of Bone's observations in Cunard Line: Then and Now.
