If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times.
“Oh, we loved QE2, but the QM2 is different. She’s just not our idea of what Cunard is…..”
It’s a throwaway remark, although one usually made in honest good faith. But how true is it? Here’s my take on it:
Cunard represents to many people an idea of what a transatlantic shipping line is (although the company itself has always been about far more than the Atlantic crossing) and they have very definite, heavily entrenched, ideas of what that experience should be. A nostalgic experience, where old world civility, values and dress codes rule. And those values should be enshrined, like the Ten Commandments, on every ship that flies the Cunard flag.
