Last week the film Let Them All Talk starring Meryl Streep was released on HBO Max, which is largely set onboard Cunard’s flagship, the Queen Mary 2, during one of their iconic transatlantic crossings from New
York to London. Long considered the most elegant way to journey to and from Britain, Cunard runs scheduled eastbound and westbound transatlantic crossings frequently throughout the year and there are many who choose to bookend their vacations to Britain with a Cunard crossing – never setting foot on an airplane for their journey between the Old World and the New.
Queen Mary 2 is a remarkable flagship, and her style and elegance are legendary. Above all, it is the space she offers and the luxury for you to do as little or as much as you wish which set her apart. Cunard’s flagship is a truly astonishing liner, and you will find an incredible sense of freedom in the space she offers.
Whether you are in the mood for complete relaxation or something more active, you can find it onboard. Immerse yourself in enthralling entertainment, be indulged in the Canyon Ranch Spa Club, or simply relax with a book in her vast library. Though perhaps the most magical aspect of a transatlantic journey is the rediscovery of time, something so often lost in the jet setting type of travel we are more used to. In a day and age when you can get to the other side of the planet in half a day’s travel, there is something very old school and romantic about traveling by sea. You understand and appreciate the size of the world when it takes you six days to cross the Atlantic instead of five hours. The Golden Age of travel may seem as though it is consigned to the pages of history books, but aboard a Cunard transatlantic crossing, its spirit lives on in glamorous fashion.
