Transatlantic voyages – the grandest way to reach England with your pooch!  Hollywood film legend Elizabeth Taylor loved taking her pooch on Cunard because of the special attention afforded to both people and pets. Now Cunard has upped the pet satisfaction  quotient as Queen Mary 2 is the only ocean liner to regularly carry animals. Kennels are managed by a dedicated Kennel Master. Owners may access their cat or dog in pampered comfort to and from New York. A fine reason to celebrate with a Veuve Clicquot moment.??

The original Queen Mary was described by Hollywood film star Cary Grant as the eighth wonder of the world. Grant timed his sailings to coincide with the Queen Mary’s Atlantic schedule. There are no ports of call during a Transatlantic Crossing (New York to Southampton or the reverse voyage) which allows for the opportunity to immerse oneself in the Golden Age of Ocean Travel as heralded by Cunard for over 170-years. Traditionally, Cunard’s Transatlantic Crossing is six days; but as of 2010 guests were afforded the choice of six or seven days. Queen Mary 2 was named by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll in January 2004 and entered service on January 12th the same year. By the time Queen Mary 2 sailed the Atlantic 104 times — a journey for which she was especially built — and made calls to 115 ports in 45 countries, she celebrated five-years of service.
