Cunard's transatlantic cruises offer a traditional experience with journeys between Southampton and New York. Enjoy the classic cruise vibe including beautifully themed balls and magnificent on-board leisure facilities, as you traverse the Atlantic Ocean, either heading to or returning from the iconic city of New York.
Cunard transatlantic sailings have been running for over 150 years, offering fantastic levels of service over the years. No other cruise line captures the authentic, high-class feel of cruising quite like Cunard does. The ships retain the same livery as they've used throughout their history, built on the foundations of previous voyages which are renowned for first-class comforts and services. This all has an influence of the standards of the modern cruise line with a long heritage to live up to.
Cunard transatlantic cruises take place on-board each of the three ships in the Cunard fleet –Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2. Each ship is furnished to the highest standards and packed with relaxing features. A transatlantic cruise differs from many other cruises in that there are very little opportunities to leave the ship during the voyage – often there are no planned port visits and the ships simply travel between New York and Southampton. For these cruises to be successful, ships must be equipped with plenty of entertainment facilities for the duration of the voyage, which Cunard excels in with luxury spas, themed evenings, casinos and more.
Mainly, transatlantic cruises are from Southampton to New York, cross the Atlantic Ocean with plenty of days at sea. However, there are a number of Cunard transatlantic cruises that head to other destinations for guests who wish to see more ports. You can enjoy exploring ports along the US coast, or Canada with a stop in Quebec. Alternatively, some of the cruises travel from New York to Southampton and then onwards to Hamburg so that guests can explore this fantastic German city.
