While many ships offer Autumn voyages to Canada & New England, there is only one iconic 'Queen Mary 2', the grandest ocean liner afloat, that offers a one-time voyage this Fall with a style and opulence unmatched by any other ship afloat. Heir to the great traditions established by the original Queen Mary, the original Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Elizabeth 2, this great Cunard liner combines a fabled 175 year heritage of seagoing excellence with all the modern amenities one would enjoy in a modern Five-star resort. Nicer still, by combining this unique voyage on the Greatest Ship in the World with the stunningly beautiful train journey from New York City to Montreal with three nights deluxe hotel accommodation in Montreal, sightseeing, some great dining and travel aboard Via Rail Canada to Quebec City we have created the perfect relaxing and elegant holiday.  With complimentary or low cost traintravel to & from New York City, transfers, special parties and events ashore and aboard Queen Mary 2, this is a superb holiday at a most attractive price.

We have even included an overnight hotel stay in New York City the evening before our departure by train for Montreal to avoid tight same-day connections along with the fun of overnight hotel stay in Manhattan.  As befits a well-designed holiday, our hotel is a 60 yard walk from Penn Station, across the street in fact.

Aboard Queen Mary 2, little touches, available on no other ship such as the besttraditional Afternoon Tea daily, performances by the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and the largest library afloat, not to mention the Canyon Ranch Spa and acres of open deck, makes for the ultimate 'Ocean Liner Style Holiday'.  With a wide choice of dining options, from casual to sophisticated, a casino, duty-free shopping and more makes 'Getting there is ALL the fun'.

Lastly, our program offers a unique 'One Call Does it All' arrangement for this unique voyage to Atlantic Canada. We expertly arrange your train travel with your preferred routing, your hotel stay, and your cabin choice aboard Queen Mary 2 as well as travel home after the voyage.  Our entire staff has traveled on Cunard Line dozens of times and has done every Amtrak route, so there is no question we do not know the answer to. In short, this one-time voyage has only one flaw, it will sell out quickly and prompt reservations are encouraged.
