World Space Week

World Space Week

World Space Week.

Cunard is delighted to offer you the opportunity to celebrate World Space Week with a special space-themed Transatlantic Crossing.

Acclaimed experts from many fields  - including astronauts, scientists and Royal Astronomical Society members - will join us to present and discuss all aspects of space and its exploration.

In addition to new space shows in Illuminations, the world's only Planetarium at Sea, anyone who has enjoyed a clear night mid-Atlantic will attest to Queen Mary 2 being the perfect venue to stargaze - away from light and air pollution.

Space Week in 2019.

Queen Mary 2 invites you to set sail once again to celebrate World Space Week on a special space-themed Transatlantic Crossing. The journey will feature a variety of space-themed experiences, including talks from distinguished space explorers and astronomers.

Cunard’s partnership with the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS) allows the ship's on board planetarium to offer specially-curated shows, explaining what can be seen in the night sky and putting distant stars and galaxies into focus. From Southampton you'll arrive in New York the day World Space Week begins, where there will be a host of Space Week events to attend post-cruise.
