A Guide to Cunard Fares


Cunard Price Guide

From afternoon tea with white gloved service, to ballroom dancing in the Queen’s Room, a cruise with Cunard defines luxury.
Cruising with Cunard is an experience that gives you everything you want and exceeds all expectations. Choice is everywhere with Cunard, from the destination you choose to your lifestyle onboard or even how you pay for your cruise.

Once you have decided upon the perfect Cunard cruise for you, take a look at the fare options available to see which best suits your cruising needs. By carefully considering which type of fare you use to book your holiday, you can ensure that everything is suited to your preferences with best value and peace of mind.

With each fare comes something different, whether its paying a little extra for a Cunard Fare and benefitting from added extras such as onboard spending money, priority dining preferences, shuttle buses in port or free car parking.  Or by booking a Saver Fare and ensuring you get your holiday with the cheapest upfront costs.

Cruise Fare FAQ's

When should I book?
There is no definite answer for when you should book your cruise. However, we can advise on which option might be more suitable for you. If you are restricted by your requirements, such as sail dates, cabin size etc and you have found a cruise you like at a price you are happy with, then we would advise not to delay your booking so that you don't miss out.  If you can be more flexible and don't mind when you sail or which cabin grade you have, then you can always wait to see if Cunard Saver Fares are released on a sailing you like. It is worth noting that Saver Fares are always subject to availability and not offered on every sailing.
