Meet the three Cunard Queens and win a ‘captain for the day’ experience

Cunard is offering a lucky child the ultimate school holiday day out


On August 10, 2018, all three Cunard Queens will arrive in Southampton – Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria. This rare and highly anticipated occasion is one that needs celebrating, so to mark the event Cunard is offering five lucky youngsters the chance to win “a day in the life of a Cunard captain”.


Teaming up with TTG, the luxury cruise brand is excited to give away one of these exclusive places to a travel agent’s child or young relation/friend.


The winner will have the chance to take a unique look into the role of a Cunard captain, spending the day behind the scenes onboard the Cunard flagship, Queen Mary 2. One of the ship’s captains will be the host, sharing their real-life stories of sailing the seven seas.


As well as taking a full ship tour and spending time learning about the daily duties of a captain on the bridge, the lucky winners will enjoy a VIP lunch, speed around the Cunard fleet in a private boat and take home some extra special mementos to commemorate the day.
