Expanded Service Offers More Signature Transatlantic Crossings, Weekend Getaways And Caribbean Adventures from New York for the Next 18 Months

The Britannia Ball Supports the Arts Before Memorial Day Weekend Getaway

Cunard’s celebrated flagship Queen Mary 2 returns to New York on April 10 after completing her maiden World Cruise and will be based in the Big Apple for the next 18 months, significantly expanding her New York service offering more signature Transatlantic Crossings, weekend getaways and Caribbean adventures.

In a move that underscores a continued commitment to New York and support of the arts, Cunard will host the Britannia Ball, a gala fundraiser onboard Queen Mary 2 jointly benefiting the New York City Opera and Brooklyn Academy of Music, on Thursday, May 24. Guests who attend the gala and book the four-day Memorial Day Getaway to the Bahamas, departing the next afternoon, will be offered special “early embarkation” and invited to enjoy an extra night of classic ocean liner luxury by retiring to their stateroom after a glamorous evening of fine dining, dancing and entertainment.
