President George H.W. Bush & Former First Lady Barbara Bush Sail First Transatlantic Crossing aboard Cunard’s Flagship Queen Mary 2

The 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, and former First Lady Barbara Bush, joined by their daughter, Dorothy, and granddaughter, Georgia, sailed their first Transatlantic Crossing aboard Cunard Line’s flagship Queen Mary 2 this week. The seven-day voyage originated in Southampton, England, on 27 April and arrived into New York.

During the voyage, the President and First Lady enjoyed production shows in the Royal Court Theatre, experienced the world-class Canyon Ranch SpaClub and attended one of Cunard’s new Apple iStudy enrichment classes. By night, they could be seen dining with the captain, as well as in the Queens Grill Restaurant, La Piazza and Queen Mary 2’s specialty restaurant, Todd English.

Cunard’s legendary Transatlantic Crossings reflect the pinnacle of adventure and civility in ocean travel. Queen Mary 2 is the only liner offering regularly scheduled Transatlantic service, ranging from seven-day voyages between New York and Southampton, England, to eight- and nine-day Crossings offered to Hamburg, Germany.
