A word of warning to the unwary traveler: a Queen Mary cruise might spoil you so deliciously that all subsequent cruises are disappointing. The new Queen Mary 2 is the longest, highest, widest, largest, and yes, the grandest liner on the seas today. She is a royal lady indeed.

Queen Mary Cruise Destinations

The Queen Mary sails in the Caribbean, the Americas, Scandinavia and Europe--in fact, almost anyplace Cunard goes. But this grand dame's specialty is the transatlantic crossing, that time-honored glamorous trip from Southampton to New York. This is the cruise taken by millionaires and movie stars, and it is every bit as exciting today as it was when Gable and Lombard might have been on board.

Accommodations and amenities on a Queen Mary cruise are spectacular. Public spaces include a 360-degree promenade deck, five pools and ten restaurants. Then you can work off that great food at the Canyon Ranch Spa. This 20,000-square-foot facility not only includes the usual treatment rooms, saunas and steam rooms, but also sports a waterfall!

You can indulge your mind as well as your body on a Queen Mary cruise. This grand lady offers two exclusives: the Illuminations planetarium and the Cunard ConneXions cultural enrichment program. In Illuminations' full-scale planetarium, you can take a virtual trip into outer space. With ConneXions' seven classrooms and 500-seat auditorium, you can explore your inner space with classes ranging from fine art to fashion, foreign languages to film making. And you haven't even reached your destination yet!
