Cunard Cruises, Crossings and Voyages

On a Transatlantic cruise, or Transatlantic Crossings as Cunard calls them, you'll spend seven or more glorious days between the United States and England.  Sail from New York City to Southampton, the port of London.  Or continue to Hamburg, Germany.  En route, enjoy traditional classic English Tea, Royal Balls with live dance music, the largest dance floors at sea, thought provoking topics by a wide range of speakers, actors of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, the onboard Planetarium, the latest movies and other excellent entertainment. And if you don't like to fly, we can even help you combine two or more voyages for a vacation in the Mediterranean or Northern Europe without any international flights. 

Watch the video about daytime activities and the Cunard Insight programme or about the Entertainment onboard to learn about what you can do onboard.

Cunard is also famous for its world cruises. All three Cunard liners, Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth will sail a world cruise in 2015, and visit storied destinations throughout Asia, South America, Africa, Australia and the South Pacific.  Even if you can not travel for over 100 days, we can help you book a shorter Liner Voyage or partial world cruise segment.

You can even explore the renowned White Star service of Cunard if you only have three to five days during one of the Getaway voyages.  Just a few days away will give you a taste of Cunard's renowned White Star service on sailings from New York to Canada and New England or from Southampton to Northern Europe.  

Finally, Cunard provides you a wonderful opportunity to escape the cold winter in style on one of its Caribbean cruises.

Cunard offers you the opportunity to become a part of history, and we can make that dream a reality.  Call Q Cruise + Travel, your cruise travel specialist agency and a proud member of the Virtuoso luxury travel network.  Our cruise travel agents are certified by Cunard Line as Cunard Commodore Specialists and have personally sailed on all recent Cunard ocean liners, including the famous historic Queen Elizabeth 2 or QE2. 

Q Cruise + Travel (formerly Cruise Holidays Chicago):
Certified Cunard Commodore Experts


Cunard highly recommends the use of professional, certified travel agents who possess the expertise and attitude to turn your Cunard cruise into an experience that you will cherish forever. The line has developed one of the best training programs in the cruise industry.  All cruise and travel advisors at Q Cruise + Travel (formerly Cruise Holidays Chicago on Magnificent Mile) have been certified by Cunard as Cunard Commodore experts and completed extensive training and research regarding the line's history, its current offering of services and amenities and its destinations.  In addition, Q Cruise + Travel was named to Cunard's exclusive Inner Circle group of Cunard specialist travel agents and is one of Cunard's top producing travel agencies in North America.  The team of Q Cruise + Travel was also invited to join the Virtuoso luxury travel network, which provides additional amenities and services on top of the expertise offered by Q.  Less than 1% of travel advisors in North America are accepted for Virtuoso membership.

Our cruise travel agents are certified by the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) as Luxury Cruise Specialists (LCS), Master Cruise Counsellors (MCC) and Accredited Cruise Counsellors (ACC).

Rob Clabbers, the president of Q Cruise + Travel and his team have traveled extensively throughout the world, and have lived in cities as varied as Amsterdam, Paris, London, Hong Kong, Macau, Dubai, Tokyo, Brisbane, Melbourne, Curacao and St. Maarten.  The team has also worked and traveled in Europe, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, the United States, Mexico and Central America, South America and Africa. 

We have personally sailed on Cunard's ocean liners in a wide variety of accommodations - from Inside rooms to Queens Grill - and are able to share our first-hand expertise with you.  This all results in a level of expertise and service that the average call center travel agent or website can not provide.  If you have booked your Cunard cruise directly with Cunard already, find out here how you can benefit from our service and expertise by transferring your booking to us.

Value and the Q Cruise + Travel Advantage

Because of our excellent relationship with Cunard, our fares are never higher and at times even lower than the fares you'd find when checking directly with Cunard. In addition, we offer shipboard credits to spend as you wish on almost all Transatlantic Crossings and other sailings, or nice amenities such as bottles of wine, canapes or a Cunard souvenir.

We offer a wider range of hotels, travel insurance and other travel services than Cunard Line, as well as the unique adventures and services available through our membership in Virtuoso.  In addition, many of those services are less expensive than the options offered by Cunard. And if you are an American Express Platinum or Centurion Card holder, we can also book your American Express Cruise Privileges for you.

Award-winning Service

At Q Cruise + Travel, we specialize in cruise and leisure travel.  We pride ourselves on providing the best service from the moment of your very first enquiry until you get home.  We have won numerous awards for our level of service, including Golden Anchor, Operational Excellence, Customer Service, Presidents Circle, Top Sales Achievement and other awards.  We were recognized by Cunard Line for Sales Excellence.  We are also recommended by Gene Sloan, Cruise Editor of USA Today.

Of course we will help you pick the right ship, cruise, stateroom or suite, but our service does not end there.  We'll help you fully personalize your vacation, including hotel accommodation and flights, transfers, excursions, travel insurance and more.  And if the Cunard cruise is only the beginning or end of your trip, we can help you with Eurostar reservations, European rail passes, or other travel plans within the Old World.

Although many of our guests are from Chicago, Illinois and the Midwest, our travel agency serves clients throughout North America, the United Kingdom, Germany and other European countries, and Australia.

So don't wait, and don't go it alone: let us help you plan the voyage of a lifetime.
