To celebrate two momentous centenaries – 100 years since Cunard was the first cruise line to introduce on-board photographers, and 100 years since their first round the world voyage, Cunard has launched an online photography exhibition, carefully curated by world-renowned photographer and filmmaker Mary McCartney.

Together with a selection of photos submitted by guests who have travelled with us over the years, the unique exhibition, titled ‘Sea Views’ also features never-before seen imagery from the Cunard archives – including a snapshot of glamorous and esteemed guests, from Elizabeth Taylor and Rita Hayworth to Bing Crosby and Nelson Mandela.

Hundreds of Cunard passengers from all over the world, including America, Australia, Canada, Germany and the UK, submitted over a thousand of their personal highlights aboard Cunard’s ships. The images depict a series of fascinating moments from families emigrating to new continents, milestone anniversaries to unexpected guest encounters, telling magical stories from the 1920s to present day.

Mary McCartney said:

“Curating the Sea Views Exhibition for Cunard has been a fulfilling project for me as a photographer and filmmaker. It was a joy to dig deep into the archives and discover never-before-seen photographs that capture the essence of Cunard’s signature moments, showcasing the glamour, elegance, and adventures families and friends shared together”.

“It was not just about showcasing the history, but also celebrating the millions of travellers who have embarked on unforgettable voyages across the globe. As I went through the archives and read the stories submitted by passengers from all corners of the world, I was struck by the strong sense of community and connection that Cunard has fostered over the years. It was an honour to bring those stories to life through the exhibition.”
