Experience a historic anniversary on Queen Mary 2 as she sails her 400th Transatlantic Crossing, having sailed her first 20 years ago in 2004.

August 23–30, 2024, Queen Mary 2

To mark this extra special crossing, you’ll be joined by some fascinating maritime historians. Attend talks and listen as they share tales and anecdotes about this historic journey that Cunard ships have been making since 1840.

Enjoy themed celebrations on top of the signature Cunard experiences that you can always count on. Sparkling Gala Evenings. Afternoon Tea served by white-gloved waiters. Cocktails inspired by seven of our celebrated Commodores. Then there’s the White Star service that leaves you thinking “I can’t believe they thought of that”.

This journey remains as iconic today as it was in 1840, when our history began. We are proud to say we’ve welcomed thousands of guests on board to enjoy a Transatlantic Crossing with Cunard.

Whether you want to be part of maritime history or just travel the Atlantic like Hollywood’s finest, don’t miss your chance to experience this unique voyage.
