Shop ‘til you drop with a 12-night New York shopping cruise on the Queen Mary 2. 

Groups of ladies who lunch can emulate the likes of Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell with a shopping trip to New York aboard the Queen Mary 2.

The Gentlemen Prefer Blondes stars got into all sorts of pickles in the beloved 1953 Hollywood diamond caper set aboard an Atlantic cruise ship.

Now you can relive their jaunt with an 11-12 night fly-cruise in either direction for less than the cost of a one-way flight.

Jetline Cruise Holidays offers a series of opportunities to soak up the luxury life on the ocean waves with all the grandeur, sophistication, elegance and tradition that promises.

Expect to dress for dinner, meet interesting people and be pampered with the legendary Cunard White Star service. The Queens Room hosts a range of themed balls throughout each cruise and you can enjoy a champagne cocktail party with the captain and afternoon tea served by white-gloved waiters on fine bone china.

Must-dos when you arrive in America’s iconic second city include shopping trips to Macy’s and 5th Avenue, peering across the Big Apple from the top of the Empire State Building and kicking back to watch the world go by in Central Park.

In the evening you can sip cocktails in a bar or soak up the glamour of a top show on Broadway.

Other interesting options include hopping on a subway to visit the 9/11 Ground Zero site or the home of ‘greed is good’ capitalism, Wall Street - not forgetting the Statue of Liberty of course.
