Pick of the Real Deals: Iconic Cruise with Cunard
Every week we have our now-traditional debate about our favourites among the Real Deals, and this week, I shouted the loudest! I’ve got a real hankering for taking a cruise, and what better way to do so than on a transatlantic crossing – probably the most iconic cruise route you could take. But this isn’t just any cruise, it’s on board Queen Mary 2, Cunard’s flagship vessel. And Cunard lead the way in luxury cruising, so this is a pretty special offer.
This great last minute offer we found with Iglu Cruise means you’ll get more for your money, with an upgrade from an inside cabin to an outside cabin all included for £599 per person! We can’t quite believe it as that’s a whopping £700 less than it should have been.
As the ship heads out from Southampton there’s plenty to explore once you’ve got settled into your cabin. Queen Mary 2 boasts a wide choice of places to eat from a late night snack bar to afternoon tea to celebrity restaurants so you’ll never go without, and there’s a huge choice of bars too. Settle into the Golden Lion Pub, sip fine spirits in Churchills or relax in the Winter Garden lounge – inspired by Kew Gardens
And as the sun sets, the entertainment just keeps going! Queen Mary 2 has the world’s only onboard Planetarium, which sounds amazing, or you can see some traditional theatre acts as well as dancing the night away in the nightclub.
As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll end up in New York! The ship docks in the morning so you’ll have all day to explore before catching your flight home. Why not carry on the glamour with some shopping at the Time Warner Center or head to the Top of The Rock at the Rockefeller building to beat the crowds and get amazing views including seeing the Empire State Building in all its glory.
If you wanted more time in New York you can book two extra nights from £125 per person.
This cruise departs on 12th December – read our write-up for details on how to book.
