Cross the Atlantic by ship from Southampton to New York or return to Southampton from New York. Whichever way you travel, you have six or seven whole days in which to lose yourself to the countless charms of the flagship on an Atlantic crossing.
Cunard has been sailing from Southampton to New York and back since 1847 when Cunard established the first regular service. Today only Queen Mary 2 regularly makes this journey and not only does she remain as glamorous and exciting as ever but an Atlantic Crossing also remains one of travel’s most iconic experiences. As the boundless ocean surrounds you, surrender to the rhythms of dining, discovery, mingling and relaxing.
For a classic seven or eight-night Transatlantic Crossing, you’ll either fly out to New York to join Queen Mary 2 for an eastbound crossing or travel westbound from Southampton to New York before flying home.
Crossing the Atlantic by ship in both directions allows for the ultimate experience. Sailing there and back gives you 14-18 unforgettable nights on board, with a day in the middle to discover New York.
On selected Transatlantic cruises between Southampton and New York, you’ll head for Halifax in Canada, a city filled with history and surrounded by dramatic scenery.
Blend the magic of the season in Times Square with the timeless luxury of Queen Mary 2 and do your Christmas shopping in the city that never sleeps without worrying about baggage restrictions on your voyage home.
Your holiday doesn't need to end when you leave your ship, and it can start before you even step on board. The chances are you’ll be joining or departing your ship in one of the world’s iconic cities – and you may want to stay and look around. So you can easily add a package to spend as many nights as you like at a hand-picked New York hotel. Ask us about our exclusive packages which include Niagara Falls
