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.
