Following on Queen Mary 2's historic 200th Transatlantic Crossing, which departed New York for Southampton, England, on 6 July 2013, Cunard released video highlights from the flagship's milestone Atlantic voyage.
The video features footage of the ship's special sail-by of the iconic Statue of Liberty, and the always anticipated sailing under the Verrazano Bridge.
During the feature, Commodore Christopher Rynd speaks about this significant Crossing, which included lectures by Queen Mary 2’s Chief Naval Architect, Stephen Payne; and famed BBC broadcaster, Nick Owens; enthralling performances by Juilliard Jazz School musicians; and a grand, celebratory dinner.
