Cunard Line Shares A New World Voyage Video Series Starring Real Passengers

A World Cruise is a journey some of us can only dream of, but Cunard Line is making it possible for us all to “see” the thrill of a World Cruise through the eyes of their frequent World Voyage passengers in a new video series. In the first video below, Michigan residents Richard and Pat Donahey (Belleville), Dr. Martin and Linda Weissman (Birmingham) and Maryland residents Peggy and Pamela Zirkle (Berwyn Heights) share some of their favorite World Voyage experiences and memories.

The guests share how they came to first sail on a Cunard World Voyage, and why they have frequently sailed since then; what they enjoy about life on board; and the many interesting people they’ve met over the years, from globally known personalities such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu to their many friendships that have developed with people from all over the world. One guest speaks enthusiastically about her love for dressing up on formal nights and such events as Cunard’s Black and White Ball, and even gives viewers a peek into her “cruise closet,” replete with gowns reserved only for her Cunard voyages. Now, there’s a woman after my own heart!

The second video (available next month) will highlight these guests’ travel experiences, ranging from exploring India’s Taj Mahal and touring the Egyptian Pyramids, to walking on the Great Wall of China and climbing Australia’s famed Sydney Harbour Bridge.

“For nearly a century, Cunard has served the adventure-seeking traveller with unrivaled access to the world’s most storied regions since the advent of our World Voyage Program in 1922,” said Peter Shanks, president of Cunard Line. “These World Voyage guests provide a glimpse into this legendary experience and explain why Cunard compels so many guests to return to the World Voyage year after year.”

Cunard’s 2014 World Voyage Season will cover more than 116,000 nautical miles across six continents and visits to 85 unique ports of call in 40 countries. The program features three World Voyages ranging from eight to 133 days aboard Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth, with embarkation points in Southampton (England), New York, Fort Lauderdale, and San Francisco.
