A FLAGSHIP WITHOUT COMPARE THE CUNARD EXPERIENCE THE WORLD’S ONLY OCEAN LINER Not only is Cunard a unique experience, Queen Mary 2 is also a unique ship: today’s only true ocean liner. Stronger, sleeker, smoother and swifter than a cruise ship. A link to a glorious past only Cunard can provide. EXCEPTIONAL DINING Queen Mary 2 plays host to some of the finest chefs at sea and the most elegant restaurants. Innovative dishes and Cunard classics made with the finest ingredients can be enjoyed in truly elegant settings. Indulge in the truly British tradition of Afternoon Tea, served by white-gloved waiters in the Queens Room.

YOUR GRAND VOYAGE HIGHLIGHTS

• Over 30,700 nautical miles • 17 ports • 14 countries

• 2 maiden calls for Queen Mary 2 • Overnight stays in Montevideo and Rio de Janeiro

• Scenic cruising around Cape Horn , through the Magellan Straits and Beagle Channel • 12 UNESCO World Heritage Sites

H Bridgetown, Barbados H Vibrant Bridgetown buzzes with life as Bajan locals and enraptured visitors leisurely wander amidst celebrated sights. Historic Bridgetown and its Garrison are recognised as a World Heritage Site, whilst a short walk from the harbour, the bright buildings of Pelican Village Craft Centre await. Handmade apparel, rum-infused goodies and island-inspired artwork is sure to appeal to souvenir hunters. Elsewhere on the island you’ll find exotic botanical gardens, the intriguing Harrison’s Cave system, renowned cricket grounds and informative museums. Plus, for a true taste of the island, enjoy a tour × of the Mount Gay Rum Distillery or discover the home-grown secret to delectable Agapey chocolate.

H New York, USA H New York is the city so good they named it twice. With more restaurants, museums and iconic sights than perhaps any other destination, there’s something for everyone in the Big Apple. As the setting for so many famous films, New York City contains some of the world’s most universally recognised landmarks. You could easily while away an afternoon simply taking it all in. The torch-bearing Statue of Liberty is, of course, an essential sight to see, as is the world-famous Times Square. You’ll also want to visit the Empire State Building – standing at 1,454 feet high, the Art Deco-style building’s observation deck offers breathtaking views of the city.

H Rio de Janeiro, Brazil H Hot all year round and with a tropical rainforest extending down to the sea, it’s easy to understand why Rio de Janeiro is known as “Cidade Maravihosa” (“The Marvellous City”). When you need a retreat from the heat, sip on a Caipirinha in one of the area’s pubs or grab a fresh açaí smoothie from one of the many juice shops to be found on street corners throughout the city. Ascending to the peak of the beautiful Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf Mountain) should be on every visitor’s trip checklist. Standing at 1,299 feet (396 metres) above sea level, the mountain offers stunning views of Niterói, Copacabana and Santa Cruz Fortress. An impressive 30 metres tall, the statue sits atop the Corcovado Mountain and is listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

H Castries, St. Lucia H Lush, romantic and welcoming, stunning St. Lucia is an adventure waiting to be had. The dramatic twin peaks of the Pitons make a majestic backdrop as you hike through the rainforest, sail with dolphins or sip a cocktail on a palm- fringed beach. The crystal clear waters surrounding St. Lucia are a playground for marine life. Take a sailing tour around the island and keep your eyes peeled for seasonal humpback, sperm and pilot whales as well as dolphins. Whatever you choose to fill your time on this spectacular island, don’t forget to bring a book and cocktail for the ultimate in relaxation.

**Additional mileage may be available at a supplement. Booking conditions of Cunard (ATOL 6294) and Reader Offers Limited Agency terms of business apply. Please see back page for full
