Sail to New York in luxury aboard the stylish, elegant Cunard Queen Mary 2, then hit the shops and see the iconic sights of the Big Apple

As well as being the City That Never Sleeps, New York has been the setting for some of our most loved TV shows and some of the most famous film moments in history. On this incredible trip, you'll sail in luxury with a seven-night cruise to New York aboard one of the world's most famous flagships - the RMS Queen Mary 2. Your every need is catered for aboard, with mouthwatering dining options galore, nightly entertainment, live music, daytime dance classes or sport and fitness sessions. If you've still got a taste for retail therapy there are boutiques offering everything from fashion to books and fine art. For those wishing to take life more slowly, the spacious spas aboard offer a range of blissfully uplifting treatments for you to indulge in.

Once you've fully relaxed during your Atlantic-crossing, prepare to shop, eat and explore 'til you drop, treading the same streets as the casts of Friends or Sex And The City, and "have what she's having" in Katz's Deli, like Meg Ryan' in When Harry Met Sally. Or, channel your inner Holly Golightly and take a trip to Tiffany's on Fifth Avenue. You will have two days to experience one of the world's greatest cities, which is home to iconic sights such as Times Square, Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, the Guggenheim, the High Line, Brooklyn Bridge… the list is almost endless. There will be time to check the rails at Macy's or Bloomingdales, take in a show in the Theatre District or cross the bridge to explore cool Brooklyn. Once you've worked up an appetite, you can spend an evening in one of the 70 or so Michelin-starred restaurants - including Yorkshire's own Jason Atherton's The Clocktower - or just 'grab a slice' in one of the city's pizzerias like John's of Bleecker Street.

N.B. You can choose to cruise to the Big Apple before your New York stay or to fly to New York and cruise home, on two fantastic reverse itineraries.

Big Apple retail therapy

Whatever your taste, you can't fail to find incredible shopping in New York. Famous department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale's, Macy's are must-visits but if haute couture (or window shopping) is your thing, a stroll along Madison Avenue is essential. The 24-hour Apple Store on the edge of Central Park will take care of all your tech needs whatever time of day. Head to Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn for hip boutiques, thrift stores and vintage goodies or wander round Manhattan's Union Square to enjoy the fascinating farmer's market.

Sail in complete luxury

You will feel the everyday hustle and bustle melt away the moment you board the astonishing Queen Mary 2. The attentive crew is focused on making your journey unforgettable and helping you to relax and unwind as you cross the Atlantic. You can choose to do as much or as little as you want, throughout your cruise home - fill your day with activities such as deck games, spinning, yoga or tai chi classes, or just soak up the sun by the pool or read in the sumptuous library.

Beautiful accommodation

Your stateroom aboard the QM2 is outstanding. A bottle of sparkling wine will welcome you to your inside cabin, which boasts a king-sized bed, satellite TV, sofa, mini-bar and desk with stationery. Your bathroom has an invigorating shower, Penhaligon's toiletries and robes and slippers. Our nightly turndown service, with a 'good night' chocolate on your pillow, ends each day in style. Your steward is always available for help, and to keep your cabin in fine order, and you can order complimentary service 24 hours a day.
