Southampton to New York has to be done if you are a serious cruiser. What an amazing trip so historic and sooo relaxing. Worried before that 8 days at sea would be boring but couldn’t have been more wrong Infact when we arrived in New York didn’t want to get off. Sailing from Southampton was great as an Unthought of bonus is that 5 nights of your cruise you gain an hours sleep. Arriving in Nee York st 5 am is well worth getting up to see.  You start in the dark and then the sun rises and you round the Statue of Liberty views are tremendous have done 30 plus cruises and this is one of my very favourites. We splashed out on a suite and it was worth the extra with drinks in the cabin and the wonderful restaurant. Cruise food is always pretty good but the Queens restaurant is a step up also was worried with a winter crossing it would be very rough but it was actually quite smooth and that’s where the Queen Mary came into its own being a liner rather than a normal cruise ship certainly made for a smooth passage. 
One point to remember which for eight days st sea look at clubs for the week as you may have to start on day one not do what we did and rock up to the bridge club on day 3 doesn’t work.  Also check on themed nights before cruise we had three formal nights including black and white ball masquerade ball and a normal formal night. Do not worry about time of year and look for great deals on the suites as it is a shorter cruise it’s more affordable. Great day time entertainment too. Highly recommend this transatlantic cruise. Good Luck happy cruising
