During the voyage, guests were treated to a screening of Luhrmanâ€™s dazzling â€œMoulin Rouge,â€ followed by a Cunard Insights Q&A session with the famed director.
â€œIt was an absolute joy to travel with Cunard and experience all of the elegance and grandeur that Queen Mary 2 has to offer, said Luhrman. â€œIt was a superb way to travel from New York to England and we thoroughly enjoyed the adventure,â€ he added.
