Caronia
Cunard
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 the 1st of June 2002.
