While crossing the Atlantic Ocean from New York to Southampton, each day provides passengers the opportunity to slowly acclimate to the 5-hour time difference. Remember, when it's 8 a.m. in New York City, it's 1 p.m. in London. Cunard is the only line that runs transatlantic cruises on a regular basis. These 7-night crossings occur almost weekly.
The majority of Cunard's 2013 transatlantic sailings occur on the line's largest ship, the Queen Mary 2. This ship's most unique feature is a planetarium, where you can take some time every day of your sailing to explore a new corner of the universe.
Cunard cruises are known for their enrichment programs, so you will no doubt have lots to keep you busy. Participate in the acting workshops held by actors who trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Britain's premier acting school. Learn a new skill in the state of the art computer lab. If you feel like you need to get up and move, don't worry, Cunard offers lots of fitness classes, from spinning to funk aerobics, and the gym opens at 6 a.m. Along with these fitness activities, passengers can challenge each other to a game of croquet or tennis on deck 13.
As you can see, there are lots of reason to take a Cunard transatlantic cruise, and we didn't even get to the food. So take advantage of this wonderful sailing opportunity and book your 2013 Cunard transatlantic crossing today. Scroll down to see a listing of some of the featured itineraries
