Queen Mary 2 makes 100th Atlantic crossing

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.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
