The world's only ocean liner.

Not only is Cunard a unique experience, Queen Mary 2 is also a unique ship: today's only true ocean liner. Stronger, sleeker, smoother and swifter than a cruise ship. A link to a glorious past only Cunard can provide.

Transatlantic shore experiences.

A Transatlantic cruise would be incomplete without an exploration of the Big Apple. Climb the famous Rockefeller building, take a boat trip to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, or tick all the major sites off your bucket list with a complete highlights tour.

Shore experiences are bookable through My Cunard after cruise booking, up to one year in advance of sailing. Please note that these shore experiences will only be available to book for voyages calling at New York, such as a round trip transatlantic, and not voyages ending in New York.
