Experience a journey like no other, with a Transatlantic Crossing on Queen Mary 2. 

Cunard brings a unique experience to each one of its voyages, and the Queen Mary 2 is no different. Being today's only true ocean liner, the Queen Mary 2 is stronger and smoother than traditional cruise ships. Step back in time as you step aboard this ship, as there are unexpected surprises awaiting.

The Experience

Enjoy the freedom that comes with having nowhere to be but in the moment, with the blissful realization that your time is yours alone, and enjoy your own piece of history on a voyage that’s departed time and time again for over 180 years.

Walk in the footsteps of Hollywood royalty as you stroll the length of the Queen Mary 2. Dance in the ballroom that Frank Sinatra once enjoyed, and take in the sounds of a live band. Feel like Audrey Hepburn as you swim in the open air, gazing out at the Atlantic.

The Suites

Whether you want a stateroom with a view or a spacious suite, the possibilities are endless with the Queen Mary 2. Choose from a variety of staterooms to suit your needs, ranging from 150-2249 sq. ft.

The Queens Hill Grand Duplex

For an upgraded experience, the Princess Grill and Queens Grill suites offer spacious accommodations and exclusive butler and concierge service. These suites are perfect for social gatherings, or just relaxing after a long day at port.

Queen Mary 2’s most lavish suites include an expansive private deck, interactive TV, iPad, illy coffee machine, complimentary mini bar, fitness equipment and office with personalized stationery. A spiral staircase leads to a king-sized bedroom, and you'll benefit from exclusive access to the Grills Lounge and Terrace, priority embarkation, disembarkation and tender services.

If you are looking to live simplistically, the Britannia staterooms are perfect for up to two guests. These suites come with a variety of options including interior, balcony, and ocean view rooms. A key feature in all of the staterooms is the turndown service, complete with a chocolate left on your pillow, helping you get ready for the next day with a relaxing nights sleep.
