The tours provide exclusive access to private areas on Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, Cunard said.

Areas in the tour include the bridge, galley, mooring deck, medical center, crew quarters, engine control room, waste-handling room and the backstage areas of the Royal Court Theater.

Tours are limited to one per voyage with a 16 guest maximum. They can be booked onboard through the Tours Office, Cunard said.
