Queen Mary 2 The Ultimate Crossing Southampton to New York

Any Cruise, Anywhere, Any Time

The Ultimate Crossing

In the 1950s Cunard coined the phrase ‘Getting there is half the fun!’ and nothing could be more true than this remarkable two-week voyage of the North Atlantic aboard Queen Mary 2 – The Ultimate Crossing.

This luxury escapade begins in London. Your home for three nights is the world-renowned Savoy Hotel. Situated right next to the Thames River on The Strand near Covent Garden, the Savoy was the first purpose-built deluxe hotel in Britain when it opened in 1889. At the time it was considered the last word in comfort, luxury and service, a fact that still holds true today.

You’ll then head for Southampton, like so many before you to join a Cunarder for a crossing of ‘the pond’. The mighty Queen Mary 2, the last true Atlantic liner awaits you for a rare two-week crossing. Heading north you will call at Liverpool the home of Cunard – their first ship sailed for Halifax from here in 1840. An overnight in Reykjavik, Iceland allows you to explore this spectacular destination. Nowhere on earth compares to the raw beauty of Iceland, with its staggering landscapes and thundering waterfalls. Located on the west coast of Newfoundland, Corner Brook is an island which separating the mouth of the St Lawrence River from the Atlantic Ocean, creating the Gulf of St Lawrence. This is your next destination and it’s set against a backdrop of the Long Range Mountains, which form the northernmost section of the Appalachian Mountains.

Next is the port of Halifax. Samuel Cunard was born in Halifax and it was the destination of the very first Cunard crossing. Today will be even more festive when Queen Mary 2 is joined in port by fleet-mate Queen Elizabeth for a royal rendezvous. The local maritime museum holds an extensive Cunard collection and you might also take time to visit the Fairview Lawn Cemetery, the largest resting place of the Titanic victims.

Finally, you’ll want to be up early as your liner glides up the Hudson River, under Verazzano Narrows bridge and towards the spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline heralding your arrival in one of the most thrilling cities in the world. Your home for three nights and base of exploration is the stunning Pierre Hotel, located on the Upper East side on 5th Avenue and right next to Central Park. What will you choose to do? A visit to the Empire State Building? A wander through the Guggenheim or the Met? Or maybe you will be up early to walk some 300 metres and really have breakfast at Tiffanys!

This truly is the crossing of the season. Bon Voyage.
