Josh Leibowitz, senior vice president, Cunard North America said that there will be immense scope of mingling with the crosswords experts who would be holding workshops and classes. The guest can avail a usual chance of personal conversation over tea or cocktails.


The ship is launching the themed holiday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the New York Times crossword with nominal fares starting at just $799 (£621.31) per person.



Earlier the cruise liner has partnered with the newspaper for similar themed adventures at sea.


Leibowitz was proud to offer collaborations like this one giving the guests an extraordinary travel experience.


It is said that Cunard will partner with the New Yorker in the future for a cartoon-themed crossing.
