Transatlantic cruise

Hark back to the golden era of Transatlantic crossings with a festive full-board cruise on Cunard’s legendary Queen Mary 2, which emerged from a multi-million pound remastering not long ago and now cuts an even more regal figure on the high seas. Sailing from either Southampton or New York, your cruise across the pond is sure to pass in a giddy whirl of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. This grand dame of cruise liners is the flagship of its generation and offers a top-notch array of facilities in palatial surrounds. Marvel at the majestic Christmas tree in the Grand Lobby and take a tour of the festive gingerbread village before clinking champagne glasses at a spectacular New Year’s Eve event (should you opt to sail from Southampton).

You'll get to experience a plethora of world-class entertainment on board, from West-End-style shows and live music to RADA workshops and famous speakers from the arts industry and beyond. Elsewhere, you'll find a planetarium where you can take a virtual ride into outer space, viewing the stars and other visual spectacles – there are even courses on celestial navigation. Attend a sumptuous ball or cocktail evening or indulge in a quintessentially British afternoon tea, including fresh scones and cream and finger sandwiches. There's also a spa with a pool, aromatic steam room and a selection of treatments.

After a good long stint of relaxing, socialising and pure glamour, you’ll pass under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge (should you choose to start your escape in Southampton), where you’ll first glimpse Manhattan in the early morning light. They say it's better to journey than to arrive, yet with your destination being the Big Apple, you’ll be equally excited by your stay in heady New York.

New York City

Check off that NYC bucket list easily, thanks to your hotel’s ideal location in the heart of Manhattan. This concrete jungle is an ever-glamorous and exciting destination, characterised by its iconic skyline that glimmers by day and glitters at night. Seize the chance to check out famous stores like Bloomingdales and Macy’s, watch a baseball game, see a Broadway show or soak up the grandeur of the Statue of Liberty. Whilst here, you can enjoy spectacular views across the city from the the dizzy heights of the Empire State Building - entrance is included. Hungry? Since you’re in Midtown, countless cafes, lounges and other bars and full-service eateries are moments away.
