Europe without Flying
Why sit in a cramped airline seat for hours and battle with intrusive airport security procedures when you can stretch out and relax en route to some of the most beautiful places in the world? Enjoy the many facilities and stunning views on Queen Mary 2, your Cunard ocean liner. Instead of eating airline food, feast on culinary delicacies in one of Cunard's restaurants.
You could even combine your Cunard voyage with a great American road or train trip from your home to Cunard's American home port of New York City.
And with the comfortable speed of travel by ship, you will not have to worry about missing part of the experience because of jet lag.
Cunard refers to its combination of two Transatlantic Crossings with a Cunard European cruise itinerary as a "Grand Voyage". Please scroll down to see the 2015 Grand Voyage schedule.
Transatlantic Cruise Combinations
Let us combine two Cunard Transatlantic Crossings to allow you to explore England and Europe or visit family. We can arrange train travel or tours in Europe. Maybe you've even thought of a river cruise to explore the heart of Europe? In some cases, we can add a Cunard European cruise, allowing you to sail from New York City to Scandinavia or Northern Europe - just look below at the Grand Voyage listings.
