VALENCIA, CA — Ever wonder what it’s like to sail across the Atlantic like royalty? Now you can, simply by watching Cunard’s newly released video.
‘Queen Mary 2: Transatlantic Crossing’ showcases the iconic transatlantic experience on flagship ocean liner Queen Mary 2, a seven-night journey that travels between New York and London. It features passengers describing their experience onboard, with offerings like innovative cuisine, spa days and enrichment programs to help pass the time.
“There’s no better way to get back and forth across the ocean,” said MaryBeth Kardos, a loyal Transatlantic cruiser.
According to Josh Leibowitz, senior vice president, Cunard North America, the video’s purpose is two-fold: to provide the company’s devoted travel agent community with a valuable selling resource, and to give its loyal guests a sentimental snapshot of life onboard the Queen Mary 2.
“As a brand, we at Cunard have continued to innovate and update our trade and consumer marketing materials, and this video conveys the spirit of the Transatlantic Crossing that we so often hear cannot be put into words,” he said.
Activities onboard the ship range from ballroom dancing lessons and fencing, to wine tasting and star gazing in the largest planetarium at sea. Cunard’s ‘Insights’ program is also noteworthy, featuring experts from various industries who lead workshops and Q&As.
Upcoming special event crossings on Queen Mary 2 include ‘A Journey of Genealogy’, a collaboration with Ancestry.com, ‘Transatlantic Fashion Week’ as well as ‘World Space Week’. The ship is currently sailing its 2018 transatlantic season now through December.
