Steeped in history, romance and elegance, a Transatlantic Crossing is an iconic voyage that should be experienced at least once in a lifetime. Today only the magnificent Queen Mary 2 regularly makes this journey. The world’s only transatlantic ocean liner and Cunard’s flagship vessel, she continues this marvellous tradition started by the original Queen Mary in the 1930s. 

Many famous personalities throughout history have revelled in this celebrated voyage, from Hollywood celebrities including Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor, to political figures such as Sir Winston Churchill and even Queen Elizabeth II. It is a welcome opportunity to leave the everyday world behind, to escape into a new world of pleasure and exhilaration, and yet feel utterly relaxed. Sailing across time zones means you gain an additional hour in the day to unwind and there is no worry of jet lag. There are seven leisurely days for you to take in Queen Mary 2’s countless charms, including the finest dining options, a library with more than 8,000 books and the first planetarium at sea. 

Most of all, a Transatlantic Crossing is an invitation to make a unique and dramatic arrival into the world’s most exciting city, New York. As you approach, you have a fantastic close-up view of the impressive Statue of Liberty and instantly recognisable Manhattan skyline. The Big Apple is absolutely the perfect place to continue your exceptional journey and begin your onward escorted tour. 

You can opt for our New York only itinerary with included visit to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Alternatively you may choose to travel on to Canada to experience the magnificence of Niagara Falls up close. 

The beauty of a Transatlantic Crossing is that every moment is yours to do exactly as you wish. Ahead lies uninterrupted ocean and days to be filled with music, dancing and priceless moments that will stay with you for years to come.

Your itinerary


Queen Mary 2

You should arrive in Southampton, where you will be greeted by your dedicated tour manager when you embark the spectacularly sophisticated Queen Mary 2 for your unforgettable Transatlantic Crossing to New York.

As she glides westbound, make the most of your seven leisurely days on board arguably the most iconic and luxurious vessel in travel.

Start your mornings with a brisk walk around the promenade deck, or take to deck 13 for a game of paddle tennis. Or for a more relaxing way to spend the day, visit the spa for the ultimate pampering experience. One of Queen Mary 2’s most fascinating attractions is her own planetarium, a truly memorable way to while away your afternoon. When night falls, get dressed up and attend a glamorous black-tie gala ball in the Queens Room.

Your tour manager will also be on hand every day to give suggestions and help you start to plan your time in the Big Apple. 


New York City


Early this morning Queen Mary 2 arrives in New York harbour. Nothing quite prepares you for the towering Statue of Liberty and the panoramic view of the iconic Manhattan skyline, reflecting the very essence of the USA to be the biggest and the best.

Upon disembarking, we enjoy a fascinating sightseeing tour of New York City, taking in the most amazing sights, including bustling Times Square, famous Rockefeller Centre, and the landmark Empire State Building.


After the tour we check in to our hotel for the next three nights, the iconic four-star Marriott Marquis, one of the first hotels in Times Square.
