Cunard has announced a new partnership with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS).
Cunard made the announcement on November 16 at the non-profit organization’s annual College of Fellows Dinner at the Canadian war Museum, in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, according to a press release.
“Both Cunard and the Royal Canadian Geographical Society have a deep history and share a dedication to travel and exploration, with a great desire for cultural understanding. This partnership is the perfect marriage of knowledge and discovery,” said Matthew Gleaves, VP of commercial development for Cunard in North America.
“Cunard is committed to not only exploring the beauty and rich culture of the region but also to educating guests during the time they spend with us. There is no better organization to help us succeed in this than the RCGS; we intend to make this a long-lasting partnership,” continued Gleaves.
Experts from RCGS will be featured on chosen 2023 sailings as part of Cunard’s renowned Insights onboard enrichment program.
These headliners will be featured on every Cunard voyage during the 2023 Alaska season aboard the Queen Elizabeth from June through August as well as on the Canada and New England voyage in September aboard the Queen Mary 2.
John Geiger, CEO of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society said: “Our mandate to make Canada better known to Canadians and to the world will be furthered by this exciting partnership with Cunard. Through collaborative enrichment programming and providing Canadian Geographic content onboard, we hope each Cunard guest will come to appreciate and love the dynamic and diverse landscape and people of our country.”
RCGS speakers include explorers, naturalists, geographical experts, and indigenous advocates who will curate a custom program for Cunard guests.
