We've found a great way to prepare for Christmas: a 9-night luxury cruise-and-stay package, letting you hit the shops in New York and get back home just before Santa arrives, for £999 per person. Putting this package together yourself would cost up to £220 more.
Here's what included:
This deal departs on 15 December from Southampton. The ship arrives in New York City in the morning of 22 December, giving you a day to enjoy the Big Apple. The flight home lands back in the UK on 24 December. Click here for more information about this deal.
Few ships are more talked about than the QM2, which sails between Southampton and New York for most of the year. In fact, this transatlantic cruise is on the bucket list of cruisers and non-cruisers alike. The Daily Telegraph describes the "magnificent" ship as "luxurious, elegant, spacious and sophisticated", and even "a destination in herself".
The ship was built with New York Harbour in mind, specifically designed to sail under Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, which it clears by only 10 feet.
