Queen Mary 2: the Transatlantic Pursuit of Dreams

For those seeking a more extended adventure with a touch of classic transatlantic glamour, the Transatlantic Pursuit of Dreams voyage aboard the Queen Mary 2 is the ideal choice. This iconic crossing between Southampton, England, and New York City, USA, retraces the legendary routes of ocean liners from a bygone era.

As the Queen Mary 2 plies through the vast Atlantic expanse, passengers are transported back to the golden age of travel. During the leisurely days at sea, guests can partake in Cunard's renowned enrichment programs, featuring engaging lectures, workshops, and performances. Astronomy enthusiasts will be thrilled with the chance to stargaze from the ship's deck, far from the city lights, and perhaps even attend talks by renowned astronomers.

The voyage's climax is the approach to New York City, where the Statue of Liberty welcomes travelers to the United States. Gazing at the iconic skyline as the ship sails into the harbor, one can't help but feel a profound sense of accomplishment and awe, reminiscent of the millions of immigrants who once arrived at these shores with dreams in their hearts.


Pet Friendly Paradise

Cunard Cruises' pet program onboard is a luxurious treat for transatlantic travelers and their beloved furry companions. The majestic Queen Mary 2 offers 24 spacious kennels, providing ample room for dogs and cats to roam and play during their voyage. To ensure a sense of familiarity and comfort, British dogs are delighted with a lamppost sourced from the iconic Cunard building in Liverpool, while their American counterparts joyfully find solace in a New York City fire hydrant.

Additionally, pet owners can relish in the convenience of a dedicated owner's lounge, allowing them to bond and create lasting memories with their four-legged friends as they embark on this extraordinary maritime adventure together. Cunard's commitment to providing a first-class experience for pets and their owners truly sets them apart in the realm of pet-friendly cruise offerings.


Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea is a time-honored Cunard tradition, observed at 3:30 p.m. each day. Cunard's white-gloved waiters serve perfectly infused tea from silver teapots in the Queen’s Room. With freshly baked scones and cream and delicious finger sandwiches, the Afternoon Tea menu changes every day.
