GRAND CIRCLE USA - NO FLYING

Overview

Cunard Queen Mary 2 is a true icon of the modern age cementing her place in history alongside Cunard Ocean Liner greats of yesteryear such as QE2, Caronia, Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth, Mauretania, Berengaria, Carpathia, Lusitania and Britannia. The iconic 151,000 tonne Cunard Queen Mary 2 is currently the only true ocean liner in the world built specifically to carry on the tradition of a Transatlantic service linking Southampton with New York. Unlike her predecessors - this head turning queen of the ocean merges the benefits of an ocean liner with those of a modern cruise ship giving one of the most stable and comfortable cruise experiences possible.

This spacious ship was launched in January 2004 & underwent an extensive refurbishment in May 2016. Trans-Atlantic Cunard Queen Mary 2 voyages have become very popular and are now the latest fashion in crossing the Atlantic rather than flying. Many people are recognising that a Cunard Queen Mary 2 voyage between New York & Southampton is an ideal special treat for a family celebration, as part of a longer holiday or for a very stylish second holiday of the year.

 A Cunard Queen Mary 2 cruise affords you a holiday onboard one of the most magnificent ocean liners ever built. She's a true heir to the timeless elegance, legacy, and inspiration of the great Cunard liners of legend. You'll notice it the moment you walk through her doors into her soaring Grand Lobby and be awed from the first instance you experience the famous Cunard White Star Service. This sophisticated cruise ship boasts the most modern luxuries and amenities - from the pampering services of the only Canyon Ranch SpaClub® on the seas to the fascinating cultural enrichment programme led by prestigious experts. This regal royal must truly be seen to be believed, and you can live the adventure on Cunard cruise deals with Jetline.

Her every detail harkens to the Golden Age of Ocean Travel while providing one of the most modern travel experiences on earth. From bow to stern, discover 14 spacious decks on which to relax and unwind; to indulge in pleasures and pursuits you never normally have time for. Opulent public areas, extravagant dining rooms, ballrooms, theatres, lounges and the only Planetarium at sea.

Dining On Board:

The magnificent Britannia restaurant caters for most of the guests on-board over two sittings for dinner and has anytime dining for breakfast and lunch. The Britannia restaurant is modelled on the grand dining room of the original Queen Mary with a sweeping double staircase which ends with twin fluted Lalique light vases. The soaring vaulted stained-glass ceiling, huge tapestry, majestic columns and a space which stretches right across the whole width of the ship is most impressive. The King's Court area occupies virtually the whole of deck seven (the Promenade deck) and features a large central service area which offers virtually 24-hour dinning with extra service areas offering speciality a la carte dining options#. The Cafe Corinthia offers light snacks and options for breakfast and lunch and is a full-service coffee bar too. The Verandah restaurant offers speciality French cuisine during lunch & dinner for an extra charge; while pub style lunches in the Golden Lion Pub are free of charge.

Daytime and Evening Entertainment

The unique Cunard Insights programme provides an impressive line-up of guest speakers & lectures and the Cunard Maritime Quest is discovery trail around the ship charting the history of Cunard. Superlative white gloved afternoon tea is taken in the Queens Ballroom which is the largest ballroom at sea hosting the captain's cocktail parties, themed balls and big band style live entertainment in the evening. This ship even has a planetarium and its own art gallery. There is an indoor pool with a retractable glass roof and two whirlpools, two outdoor pools with three whirlpools and a separate kids splash pool. You will also find a library, children's clubs, numerous bars & a casino. The Royal Court theatre offers spectacular shows and entertainment, while the G32 nightclub is ideal for night owls.

Cultural Enrichment Programme

A vast array of Queen Mary 2 enrichment and lecture programmes are available onboard one of our Cunard cruise deals, to expand your horizons and take you to places you've always dreamed about. Knowledge is yours for the taking through the Cultural Enrichment Programme. You could choose to study renaissance art with a leading museum curator one day, study acting with the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, or after gazing out upon the majestic sea, take a workshop on oceanography and learn about the life beneath its surface. Queen Mary 2 cruises really will bring you the holiday experience of a lifetime.
