    View of New York (Manhattan), USA

    New York’s port on the Hudson River in Manhattan is four blocks from Central Park. New York is situated on the Atlantic coast of NE United States. With its world-class museums, big statues, even bigger buildings - certainly the Manhattan skyline with its many skyscrapers is universally recognizable - and being the most linguistically diverse city in the world, the Big Apple’s hyperactive rush keeps drawing more and more people to it. The City of New York is a densely packed mass of humanity and all this living on top of one another makes the New Yorker a special kind of person. Read more about New York (Manhattan), USA

    View of Stavanger, Norway

    Stavanger, a city on the SW coast of Norway, grew to become among the most influential Norwegian cities in the late 1900s when oil was discovered in the North Sea. Today a vibrant city, but still with its small town appeal, the picturesque harbour with the quiet streets of the old town climbing up from the water’s edge, is the centre from which the city radiates across a network of islands interlaced with graceful bridges. The area is very popular for hiking, so if time permits visit the Pulpit Rock - a massive rock that overhangs the fjord at a height of 604 metres. Read more about Stavanger, Norway

    The port city of Zeebrugge is a harbour town at the western end of the Belgian coast and a subdivision of the city of Bruges - one of the best preserved cities in Europe - for which it is the modern port. The new port has reinvigorated the city as an art and tourist centre for northern Europe.

    View of Rotterdam, Netherlands

    Rotterdam - located at the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta on the North Sea - is the largest port in Europe, and a perfect starting point for excursions to the cities of Holland. Few cities rebounded as quickly as Rotterdam following the Nazi invasion, which levelled the medieval heart of town, burning most of it to the ground. Today some of Europe's most bold contemporary architecture, such as the unique Cube Houses, can be found amid classic 18th and 19th C buildings in this, the greatest comeback city in the world. The city also houses the 186 m tall Euromast that has long been a major tourist attraction. Read more about Rotterdam, Netherlands

    View of Le Havre, France

    Le Havre is a city in the NW of France, situated on the right bank of the mouth of the Seine River and 170 km from Paris. Best known for being the ferry terminal for the English Channel crossings, it should not be quickly dismissed. This city was devastated during WWII, but was rebuilt in modernist style and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005. The innovative use of concrete, blended with the sheer sense of space, with the sea visible at the end of almost every street and open public space and expanses of water at every turn, it can be exhilarating.

    Queen Mary 2 Overview

    Queen Mary 2

    4.5
    (from 215 verified customers)

    Queen Mary 2 is the flagship of the Cunard Fleet. One of the three ships making up the entirety of the Cunard fleet. Launched in 2004 and scheduled to be refurbished in November 2020. She is the world’s only true ocean liner, making her perfectly placed to make the iconic but notoriously rough Transatlantic Crossing. Affectionately known as the 'QM2’, she carries 2691 passengers making her Cunard’s largest ship. Despite being a larger vessel, you will rarely find yourself in a crowd, except perhaps at prime dinner time or a popular theatre show. Highlights of the ship include the largest ballroom at sea and 5-star entertainment nightly in the Royal Court Theatre. Queen Mary 2 is elegant and a true icon to sail on. She honours traditional such as the British tradition of afternoon tea, which includes white-gloved waiters who serve finger sandwiches and scones with cream in the Queens Rooms. Specially commissioned artwork is visible in public rooms, corridors, staterooms and lobbies. Queen Mary 2 is one of the few ships that has a class system, linking staterooms with dining venues.
