Try One - You will be Surprised!

A Cunard transatlantic voyage is one of those iconic 'must do' holidays -

reminiscent of the ocean liner golden era before jet travel. The prefect break

for those of you who are well travelled, have cruised lots of times before

or are looking for something different. You tend to meet a very different

type of passenger on a Transatlantic crossing than on a regular cruise with

ports of call.

Grandeur, sophistication, elegance and tradition are key words associated with a

cruise on board Cunard Queen Mary 2 transatlantic crossing. Expect to dress for

dinner, meet interesting people and be pampered with legendary Cunard White Star

service. The Queens Ballroom is the venue for a range of themed balls throughout

your cruise, a champagne cocktail party with the captain and is also where

superlative afternoon tea is served by white gloved waiters on fine bone china.





Simply as a means of

transportation to get from one

side of the Atlantic to the other.

After all a seven-night voyage on a

luxury ship in a comfortable en-suite

stateroom on full board with waiter

service can sometimes be the same

cost of an economy flight and a

fraction of the cost of business or

first-class flights.


To enjoy the journey in itself

as a way to relax and escape

without the interruptions of ports of

call and the distractions of daily life.


As part of a greater holiday

experience in North America

instead of flying - combining a

cruise with a more traditional

land-based stay. Check out two

of our most popular stay and

cruise packages with Cunard

featuring Niagara Falls or a train

journey across the USA linking San

Francisco to Chicago and New York.

WESTBOUND to New York:

Get your holiday off to an immediate

start and travel to the United States in

style from Southampton. For five days of

any crossing - each day at sea is 25 hours

long and so you will arrive refreshed in

tune with local time ready to step of your

ship after breakfast and enjoy a full day.

That is without the jet lag - wanting to go

to sleep five hours before everyone else

and waking up in the early hours of the

morning. Fly home overnight.


• Switch off from the outside world;

put the mobile down and shut the laptop!

• Have a wallow in the thermal pool or

detox in the sauna.

• Try your luck at bingo or learn how to

play Poker.

• Watch a feature film or attend a lecture

by a guest speaker.

• Join a RADA acting class or pop in to

see a matinee theatre performance.

• Compete in a golf simulator competition

or learn more about computers.

• Join the pub trivia quiz or learn about

mixing martinis.

• Make friends with Bill W or Dorothy.

• Work out in the gym or learn some

dance steps.

• Take a brisk walk on deck or sunbathe

in the solarium.

• Check out the library or peruse

fine works of art.

• Relax in a hot tub or have a splash in

the pool.

• People watch with a coffee or plan your

evening attire.

EASTBOUND to Southampton: Enhance your holiday

and journey home from the USA with the knowledge that you have

not got to go through long security queues at the airport and a

tiresome overnight flight back to the UK. The potential to shop and

buy things that you would not normally buy because of the flight

home is irresistible. The New York sail away is an occasion in itself.

Have glass of champagne in hand as the ship slips from her berth

and eases out in New York Harbour. Have your cameras ready as

the ship glides past the Statue of Liberty and squeezes under the

Verrazano Narrows Bridge on her way out to sea. The famous New

York skyline disappearing behind the wake of the ship in the setting

sun is a defining moment.


Go on - try a Transatlantic Crossing - you will be surprised!
