Voyage from New York to Southampton

This holiday of a lifetime is a unique opportunity to visit the United States of America without having to board a flight at

all. Set sail from Southampton on board a classic Cunard voyage to New York and end your tour on a seven night voyage

back home. Travel by full-board sleeper train on a grand circle journey from the Big Apple, down the east coast and

through the Deep South to the Big Easy - New Orleans. Then along the Gulf of Mexico and the Southern border through

Texas and across New Mexico to the West Coast and Beverly Hills in Los Angeles. From L.A cross the desert following

Route 66 and the Santa Fe Trail through cowboy and Indian country to Chicago. Your grand circle tour is completed with

an overnight journey skirting the Great Lakes and travelling though Upstate New York back to Manhattan. The old Cunard

slogan "Getting there is Half the Fun" has never been so true setting you up perfectly for your tour of the USA with no

jetlag or concerns about luggage restrictions on the way home.

Stay in the French Quarter of New Orleans to experience

a flavour of the Old South with a distinct French accent,

famed for its filigree wrought-iron work and Mardi Gras

celebrations. Shop at the beautiful river walk and take a

ride on the street car line dating back to 1835. Visit the St

Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square and sample the nightlife

of Bourbon Street where the music never stops and looks

much as it did during the 1700's and 1800's with buildings

crowding a narrow sidewalk.


In Los Angeles you will stay in up-market Beverly Hills

- the heart of the all the action on Wilshire Boulevard.

Spend some time on Venice Beach made famous by the

Baywatch TV series featuring roller skaters and lifeguard

huts. Shop in the boutiques on Rodeo Drive and perhaps

visit the Chinese Mann's Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard

where you will find the Walk of Fame and see how your

hands measure up to those of Hollywood stars cast in the

concrete sidewalk outside the theatre.


There is lots to see and do in Chicago too: go to the beach,

shop on the Magnificent Mile, stare at the reflections

in the giant "Cloud Gate" stainless steel bean sculpture

or stand on the glass "Ledge" 103 floors up in the Willis

Tower(formerly Sears Tower), the tallest building in the US.

Route 66 starts in Chicago at the Buckingham Fountain,

and there is the amazing elevated CTA metro system which

defines the central Loop area of Downtown Chicago. The

shopping, nightlife and architecture here is simply superb

- being a much calmer and cleaner rival to that found

in Manhattan.


Enjoy the sail-away party from New York as Cunard

Queen Mary 2 slips from her berth and eases out into

New York Harbour. Get your cameras at the ready as the

ship glides past the Statue of Liberty and squeezes under

the Verrazano Narrows Bridge on her way out sea, then

wave farewell to the USA with the sun setting behind the

famous skyline.
