Cunard’s three Queens are leading its competitors by dominating the Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising in the ‘Large Resort Ship’ category.

The Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria ranked first, second and third.

Cunard Line president Peter Shanks said the recognition was a result of hard work and commitment from by crew.

He said: “We are delighted to have seen those efforts rewarded in top ship rankings from such an authoritative source as the Berlitz Cruising and Cruise Ships guide.”

All three Cunard liners will visit Australia in February and March next year. There will even be a ‘Royal Rendezvous’ when the Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 meet on Sydney Harbour in 2015.
