New Photography Commission Captures Grandeur of Cunard’s Iconic Offices


Queen Mary 2, the iconic Cunard flagship, will be remastered to deliver new levels of luxury early this summer. This major refurbishment will launch a brand new look with exciting innovations across many areas of the ship.
Cunard’s former office buildings in Liverpool, New York and Southampton are to become an integral part of Queen Mary 2 during her major refit. Each building will be featured in a specially-commissioned set of images that will be displayed in the ship’s suites and staterooms. Behind the images is renowned UK architectural photographer, Paul Ward, who accepted the Cunard commission and spent a month researching, visiting and photographing the buildings.
