The deal
Fancy a luxurious ocean crossing at an affordable rate? This last-minute 6-night transatlantic voyage aboard the Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 is now available at the rock bottom rate of $708 for interior cabins. This itinerary is normally priced at $2,435, so the savings total up to 71 percent! The Queen Mary 2 is known for its legendary voyages between Brooklyn, New York and London, and offers an onboard experience unlike any other at sea.

Part of Cunard’s appeal is that the cruise line breathes life into an era that time has forgotten, and transports passengers to the golden age of ocean liners. Every attention to detail is made on Cunard’s ships, and crew members are trained at its elite White Star Academy.

TheQueen Mary 2 leaves from Brooklyn on May 8, and features guided star-gazing to learn about constellations, meteorites, and space travel. Guest speakers will also be onboard including Arctic explorer and author John Geiger, and Pulitzer Prize winner Oscar Hijuelos. In addition, there will be plenty of ballroom dancing, fine dining, and daytime activities throughout the journey.

The dollars
Prices listed per person, non-air voyage-only and based on double occupancy and do not include Government taxes and fees.

The catch
You better get moving. The embarkation date is rapidly approaching.
