Relive the Golden Era of Transatlantic Ocean Travel

The Experience

The golden age of transatlantic cruising popularised the well-worn route between Liverpool or Southampton and NY. No opulence was spared to provide the ultimate luxury cruises to discerning passengers aboard some truly magnificent liners (including the original Queen Mary), with the rich and famous enjoying facilities like beauty parlours, swimming pools and even specialised pet care (hello Liz Taylor’s pampered pooches). When it came to dining, it was tuxes and ball gowns all the way, and dressing for dinner meant a far different thing than the shorts and flip-flops of today.

Luxury cruises aboard Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 hark back to the old days, steeping you in the refined traditions of ocean going travel and immersing you in the elegance and old world grandeur of this stately vessel. As you take in the top-class hospitality and amenities of one of the finest ocean liners in the world, you’ll be treated to social occasions like the captain’s cocktail party, themed balls and high tea. You’ll also enjoy the legendary White Star Service from Cunard’s attentive staff. And this is one time when it’s impossible to overdress, because come dinner, it’s time to get out your best attire, channel the old-fashioned movie stars and dress to impress.
