Queen Mary 2 makes 100th Atlantic crossing

Date Posted: 23 Sep 2008
Category:
The Cunard Cruises' Queen Mary 2 is about to make her 100th transatlantic crossing.

According to Cruise Talk Central, the liner will depart Southampton on September 21st, arriving in New York on September 27th, by which time the vessel will have logged 711,288 nautical miles.

Carol Marlow, president of Cunard Line, commented: "Perhaps more than any other voyage, a transatlantic crossing captures the imagination of the most intrepid travellers.

"A Transatlantic voyage recalls a bygone era of glamour and sophistication. For many, it is on par with the world's most storied travel experiences."

Launched in 2004, the Queen Mary 2 is described as the "grandest, most magnificent ocean liner ever built", boasting top-class accommodation and a number of spectacular onboard restaurants.

By the time the cruise line completes its 100th transatlantic crossing, the Queen Mary 2 will have transported 229,000 passengers, served 206,200 bottles of champagne and poured enough tea to fill five Olympic swimming pools.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
