Crossing the Atlantic on Cunard's Queen Mary 2 is a classic cruise experience. Some voyages are themed, such as the music-led Blue Note Jazz at Sea with jazz singer Gregory Porter, but for unmatched glamour and gowns, join QM2's inaugural Transatlantic Fashion Week voyage. Arriving in time for New York Fashion Week, the freshly revamped ship will host the event's founder Fern Mallis, British designer Dame Zandra Rhodes and fashion historian Colin McDowell.
Queen Mary 2's seven-night "Transatlantic Fashion Week" cruise departs Southampton, England, on 1 September. cunardline.com.au
