Event Description:  Cunard celebrates World Space Week with a celestial voyage.

Cunard's flagship liner, Queen Mary 2, will offer an extraordinary transatlantic crossing to coincide with International World Space Week in October 2017. To celebrate this international event, Cunard has curated a bespoke voyage which will take guests on an exceptional journey across the Atlantic, featuring a rangeof space themed experiences including talks from renowned space exploration experts including: • Dr Jeffrey Hoffman, NASA Astronaut, Scientist and former Shuttle Pilot • Charles Barclay from the Royal Astronomical Society • Stephen Attenborough, Commercial Director of Virgin Galactic • Ken MacTaggart, NASA Historian
 Following a recent remastering in the region of £90 million, Queen Mary 2 will become part of this global celebration of space in 2017. As well as the featured speakers, guests will be able to visit the world’s only Planetarium at sea, a spectacular venue with an impressive dome that takes guests on virtual journeys into the stars as they recline and enjoy the magnificent three dimensional shows. The sheer size and expanse of Queen Mary 2’s outside deck space also affords guests the opportunity to take a look for themselves and star gaze from the unique vantage point of the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. To enhance this unique at sea experience, Cunard is also offering Queen Mary 2’s guests a VIP pre-voyage tour of the Hayden Planetarium and the Rose Center for Space at the American Museum of Natural History followed by a VIP tour of the Intrepid Museum of Air, Sea and Space in New York. Upon arrival into the UK, there is a tailor-made package available including a two-night stay and a tour of the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. 
 The universe, space and space exploration captures the imagination like few other subjects. Whether you’re an avid astronomer or have ever wondered ‘what’s out there?’ this very special voyage will prove highly memorable as you sail on Cunard’s iconic Queen Mary 2 across the Atlantic.
