Cunard has announced the launch of ‘Sea Views’, a photography exhibition that will draw from the great captures of the luxury cruise line’s archives.

The exhibition celebrates two different 100-year anniversaries, with this year marking a century since Cunard introduced an onboard photographer to their cruises and the line’s first ever round the world cruise.

Renowned British photographer Mary McCartney assisted in curating 100 images that capture the spirit, grandeur, and history of the 100 years gone by. The images were picked from a massive archive of more than 14,000 total photos.

You might even spot celebrities like Audrey Hepburn and Bing Crosby in the photos.

Ms McCartney said: “I’m pleased to curate an exhibition within this treasure trove of 100 years of onboard photography.  I’m looking forward to exploring the archives and the crowdsourced images to hand-pick a portfolio of iconic images that will reflect a century of luxury travel.”

Sture Myrmell, Cunard President said the exhibition is the perfect celebration of the lines glittering history.

“We’re extremely proud of Cunard’s 183-year history and particularly the fact we pioneered the round-the-world voyage 100 years ago. What better way to celebrate this centenary anniversary than by curating a fantastic selection of images from our guests who’ve travelled with us.

“We’re delighted to be working with the wonderful Mary McCartney to create this exhibition and can’t wait to see the unforgettable moments that our guests have captured over the years.”
