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.
WHY CHOOSE A
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
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

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.

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!
