The advert has been created by Cunard’s retained agency Alpha Century, focusing on the world’s only ocean liner Queen Mary 2, on an iconic Transatlantic Crossing with Cunard.
The cinema advert features British philosopher Alan Watts and celebrates Cunard’s iconic Transatlantic Crossing.
David Milo Jones, Marketing Director, Cunard said:
In a world where we often find it hard to switch off, a holiday on board a Cunard ship is the perfect place to escape the everyday. This advert captures what it feels like to experience the magic of a Cunard voyage on board our flagship Queen Mary 2 as she journeys across the Atlantic.
Downton Abbey was chosen as the platform for Cunard’s new advert by retained media buying agency Wavemaker, who wanted to provide Cunard with the perfect combination of reach, impact and context.
We know that many of our target audience of discerning travellers are passionate Downton Abbey fans, so a return to the big screen was too good an opportunity for us to miss.
