Is it "Q-Nard" or "Cun-ard" or what is the proper way to pronounce the cruise line's name? scratch

The first is correct. "Q"-nard" (not naird). With a proper British accent of course Very Happy

There is an old story about an Englishman in Pairs who got into a taxi and said that he wanted to go to Cunard office. The taxi driver did not understand English and gave him a perplexed look. "Cunard, Cunard", the passenger repeated! The driver still looked confused but drove away nonetheless. Eventually, the taxi pulled up next to a duck pond. The Englishman looked bewildered. "Canard, canard", the driver replied pointing at the ducks.

It is pronounced cue nard. The "cu" part is pronounced the same as "queue", the "nard" being pronounced the same as "hard".

Hope this helps!
