Eastbound transatlantic cruises from New York

Sailing from New York to Southampton takes you Eastbound across the Atlantic, passing beneath the Verrazano Bridge and alongside the Statue of Liberty. It’s an iconic image to behold, one that will stay with you long after the ocean replaces the view of Manhattan’s skyscrapers on the horizon.

Explore on board

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.

Explore ashore

After disembarking from an eastbound transatlantic cruise in Southampton, you can soak in the city's medieval and maritime history, and make the most of easy access to London. If you're just stopping by, take a day trip to marvel at the ancient monoliths of Stonehenge or the royal grandeur of Windsor Castle on a Cunard Shore Experience*.

You're also at the perfect port from which to escape to sunkissed beaches in the Mediterranean or discover breathtaking natural beauty, iconic cities, and culinary delights in Northern or Western Europe.

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