Your holiday begins in London, one of Europe’s most popular capital cities and home to iconic landmarks galore. During a superb two-night stay you’ll have the time to plunge into its attractions, heritage sites and diverse districts. Ride the London Eye for dizzying views, view the historic buildings lining the Thames, including Big Ben, or catch an evening musical in the West End.

You’ll then transfer to Southampton where you’ll embark the magnificent Queen Mary 2 for your luxury cruise across the Atlantic Ocean to New York. This icon of the Cunard fleet is awash with first-class amenities, exquisite dining venues and glamorous entertainment that will make every day an experience to remember. Whether you embrace the elegant traditions of afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters or retreat to the cosy confines of an English pub, you’ll relish your transatlantic crossing.

Arriving in New York, you’ll be greeted by the sight of its unrivalled skyline. During a two-night hotel stay, take in the enchanting surroundings of Central Park, a place of serenity in the heart of Manhattan, or enjoy the views from the top of the Empire State Building. There’s not shortage of cultural institutions here, where you can take in world-class modern art or state-of-the-art exhibits. You’ll then head to the country’s capital, Washington DC, calling at Philadelphia along the way, where you could see the Liberty Bell, a potent symbol of American independence.

Reaching Washington DC, the epicentre of government, you’ll spend two nights in a hotel. Here you’ll find an impressive collection of the nation’s most revered buildings, including the White House and the National Mall, which you’ll discover on a guided tour.

You’ll then transfer by bus to Niagara Falls on the US-Canada border. En route, learn about more of the nation’s Civil War history at the Gettysburg Military National Park and visit the scenic city of Williamsport on the Susquehanna River.

During a two-night stay in a hotel on the Canadian side of the falls, you’ll get to witness one of the world’s most celebrated waterfalls. It’s a mesmerising spectacle that you’ll experience close up on an unforgettable fully escorted Hornblower cruise. Sail past its main section, Horseshoe Falls and the mist-enshrouded Bridal Veil. As well as the falls, there’s the delightful town of Niagara-on-the-Lake to explore, where you could enjoy a refreshing glass of ice wine, a local speciality.
