Cruising with Cunard: The Transatlantic Crossing to and from New York

Cunard say: “It’s your world, to savour in your way”, and I’m rather inclined to agree with this sentiment! Thanks to the range of extraordinary adventures and experiences Cunard has to offer, in addition to their white star service, magnificent fleet and signature experiences, I’m positive you’ll fall head over heels after cruising with Cunard.

The Transatlantic Crossing

In all the world of travel, there are few journeys rarer and none more iconic than the Transatlantic Crossing to and from New York on their flagship Queen Mary 2. Sir Samuel Cunard established the first regular crossing of this famous route in 1847, and it has since hosted famous and fabulous icons such as Frank Sinatra, Audrey Hepburn, Clark Gable, and many more.

Today, only Cunard continues this classic tradition on a true ocean liner. You are invited to uncover a truly unique and timeless experience, savouring seven blissful days of indulgence and inspiration at sea with Cunard… and you can do as much or as little as you please!

Step away from the bustle and frenzy of the everyday to an unhurried, dignified and peerless world with a wonderful dash of glamour. Surrender to the different rhythms of relaxing freedom, White Star service and stylish celebration that only the Transatlantic Crossing by Cunard can provide.

As you edge away from Southampton or New York, ahead lies the boundless and uninterrupted ocean, days filled with new discoveries and delights, and nights full of music, dancing, laughter, or peaceful moments that will stay with you forever. Sailing past the Statue of Liberty as New York’s distinctive skyline frames the backdrop to your occasion is quite simply an experience of a lifetime.

Cunard's flagship: Queen Mary 2

Welcome to a true icon. Cunard’s flagship is a truly remarkable ship that’ll provide you with a true sense of freedom thanks to the space she offers. Whether you’re looking to escape the world and simply relax out at sea, or fancy trying something new and exciting, you can find it all on board the Queen Mary 2.

Immerse yourself in enthralling entertainment, pamper yourself at the onboard spa, or simply relax with a book in her vast library. You’ll discover extraordinary craftsmanship in the elegant staterooms and suites and enjoy many sumptuous restaurants and bars.

Live music will be an unmistakable signature of every moment on your ship. Creating an enticing ambience, Cunard’s musicians brings the ship to life at grand social occasions, evening dinner drinks in the Commodore Club, and many other public rooms and lounges throughout the ship.

Relish your tastebuds with delicacies such as salmon gravlax with poached quail’s egg or a croquette of suckling pig. For your entrée, you might be in the mood for Dover sole meunière or a chateaubriand, perhaps rounded off with a rich bitter chocolate soufflé or a lighter mango panna cotta.
