Queen Mary 2’s 2007-2008 Caribbean Season Sets Sail From the Big Apple

Ocean Liner Speed and a More Sophisticated Onboard Experience Set Cunard’s Caribbean Voyages Apart

As Queen Mary 2 continues to significantly expand her presence in New York, Cunard Line announces an extended series of 12 ten-day voyages to the Caribbean from the Big Apple, as well as two 13-day sailings to Panama and the Caribbean and a 14-day Caribbean Celebration voyage featuring Christmas Day at sea and New Year’s Eve in the port of St. Thomas. Like Queen Mary 2’s legendary Transatlantic crossings, these voyages resonate with the singular elegance and sophistication of a Cunard ocean liner experience. In addition, the ship’s faster speed allows her to sail farther south than other ships out of New York, affording more Southern Caribbean port stops, such as Barbados, on ten-day voyages.

Offering easier access than ever from her homeport of New York, the 2007 – 2008 itineraries showcase an array of less-traveled ports while delivering a more glamorous experience. Cunard voyages are renowned for their luxurious surroundings, exceptional dining and signature White Star Service®. These signature services, together with the opportunity to explore and discover alongside like-minded travelers, result in a thrilling experience for first- time and longtime cruisers.

“With our 2007-2008 New York-based Caribbean itineraries, we’re offering seamless access for those residing in the Northeast to experience the already iconic Queen Mary 2 adventure plus coveted, leisurely sea days that are a hallmark of Cunard voyages,” said Carol Marlow, president of Cunard Line.

In 2007 and 2008, Cunard will offer more than a dozen Caribbean voyages sailing roundtrip from New York. Ranging in length from ten to 14 days, these journeys include:

  • Connoisseur’s Caribbean — A total of 12 departures (from Oct. 31, 2007 – April 6, 2008) featuring ten days with stops in the picturesque ports of Tortola, St. Kitts, Barbados, St. Lucia and
