  • 19 Nights
  • 24 June 18
  • Queen Mary 2

Fireworks, fine dining and fabulous cruising – what better way is there to immerse yourself in the 4th of July celebrations than during a New York City break and an intimate Independence Day celebration?

Embark the majestic Queen Mary 2 in Southampton, a spectacular ship whose very essence, from grand design to final flourishes, harks back to the grand old ocean liners of the golden age of travel - there’s simply no more fitting way to cross the Atlantic on your seven day voyage to New York. Find world-class entertainment, an on board planetarium, as well as the Canyon Ranch SpaClub and famous speakers from the arts and beyond to entertain you on your Transatlantic voyage.

Dining is an experience in itself on board Queen Mary 2 and you can expect to enjoy some of the finest dining available at sea. Get a taste of la dolce vita in the French themed Verandah Restaurant and enjoy a fusion of flavours in Kings Court, which transforms into a unique world dining experience; alternating between Asian, Indian, Italian and American cuisines. In keeping with Cunard’s luxurious and refined service you can also enjoy daily traditional afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters in the magnificent Queens Room, accompanied by the gentle strains of the live orchestra.

Approaching New York at dawn, you’ll sail under the Verrazano Bridge. As the haze clears, the deck of Queen Mary 2 hosts the perfect vantage point to enjoy an awe - inspiring golden sunrise emerging behind the Manhattan skyline and the iconic Statue of Liberty that heralds your arrival into the city that never sleeps. Upon arrival you’ll be transferred to your hotel where you’ll stay for five nights, a break which will allow you to fully immerse yourself in this unforgettable city. Climb the Empire State Building for incredible views of the city; shop ‘til you drop on Fifth Avenue; explore the serenity of Central Park or sample some of the famous New York cuisine in one of the city’s gastronomic hotspots – it’s all up to you.

On your fourth evening in the city you’ll board a luxury yacht for an intimate soiree of dinner, drinks and dancing that captures the true spirit of the Independence Day celebrations. You’ll cruise along the Hudson River, enjoying a sumptuous five-course dinner and champagne reception, stopping at the most prestigious position for which to enjoy the famed firework celebrations. Sitting on the Floating Rooftop, watching the blazing explosion of colours against the backdrop of twinkling lights illuminating Manhattan’s skyline, is a magical experience that will stay with you forever. Enjoy a further day in the Big Apple before you embark Queen Mary 2 once more for your relaxing return journey home to Southampton.
