Cunard Line

Five-time Grammy Award–winner James Taylor is taking to the high seas next summer aboard Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 for a pair of concerts during the ship’s eight-day transatlantic journey from New York to Southampton, England, via Halifax, Nova Scotia.

“We always aim to create a one-of-a-kind ambience onboard our ships,” says David Dingle, CEO of Cunard. “So having the rare chance to get up close and personal with a legendary musician like James Taylor is exactly the kind of experience that we love to bring to our guests.”

Tickets for the cruise (August 27 to September 4; from $1,698) officially go on sale December 19; members of the luxury travel agency Virtuoso (virtuoso.com) can book ahead through December 18.

Considered the most magnificent ocean liner ever built, the sophisticated ship features onboard amenities like five swimming pools, a Canyon Ranch spa, six dining options (chief among them chef Todd English’s award-winning restaurant), a planetarium and highly personalized service. How sweet it is, indeed. 800-728-6273; cunard.com.
