Vistafjord
Cunard
View the photo gallery of this ship
This ship has a length of 191 metres and was part of Cunard Line. Cunard Line was founded in 1838 by Samuel  Cunard. He was one of the first who wanted to create a regular trans-atlantic connection between England and  America (the New World). Cunard was sponsered by the English gouvernement because he had signed a  postcontract. Therefore all his ships became RMS-ships (Royal Mail Ship). Today Cunard still does some trans-  Atlantic voyages but not on a regular base anymore. The cruise line is known for its biggest oceanliner in the world:  the RMS Queen Mary 2.   This ship was berthed in Antwerp on 31 July 1997.
