Itinerary: Southampton (UK), (6 days at sea), New York
If, for you, the most alluring appeal of a cruise holiday is the fantastic luxury voyage itself, then an amazing transatlantic cruise will provide the perfect choice.
Imagine waking up to the most iconic skyline laid out in front of you: the arm of the Statue of Liberty aloft, the curves of the Chrysler Building tapering into the ether and the tip of the Empire State Building grazing the clouds. This view could be yours on a transatlantic cruise from Southampton, reaching New York as the dawn breaks over one of the world’s most vibrant cities.
A Southampton to New York cruise is a little different to a standard cruise; you’ll spend time at sea as you cross the Atlantic by ship - the iconic Queen Mary 2 is one of the best. The luxurious ocean liner is one of the world’s most beautiful vessels, designed specifically for a transatlantic cruise. Cunard’s flagship vessel is a huge part of the experience: dine on mouth-watering food, relax in the sumptuous spa or view the night sky in the only planetarium at sea. The luxury of the ship is a big draw for those looking to make the crossing.
A transatlantic cruise means no outbound flight, so you can enjoy a leisurely way of travel before you reach the Big Apple, or even Boston – some packages even include a round trip transatlantic cruise so you needn’t step foot on a plane at all! Our holidays include hotel packages in New York and destinations around the USA; you could experience Niagara Falls and enjoy Niagara Falls tours into the heart of the action, head to Washington or even north to Canada, or simply spend time in New York. We have partnerships with hotels such as The Langham and The Waldorf Astoria, so you can enjoy luxurious surroundings on dry land, too. Cruise from New York to Southampton and you can do the same luxurious journey in reverse, perhaps after a longer exploration of America.
