Cunard Line welcomes award-winning director Wes Anderson on its June 13 Transatlantic Crossing sail aboard the Queen Mary 2. Anderson will be joined on board by Academy Award-winning actress Tilda Swinton, actor Jason Schwartzman, and screenplay writer and producer Roman Coppola.

“We are delighted to welcome Wes Anderson and his friends, Jason Schwartzman, Roman Coppola, and Tilda Swinton aboard Queen Mary 2, especially during her 10th anniversary year,” said David Dingle, CEO of Cunard Line.

Passengers on board the 7-day cruise will have the opportunity to participate in multiple film screenings, plus a Q&A session with the entire group in ship’s Royal Court Theatre. This special event will include a screening of Mr. Anderson’s newest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, which stars Ms. Swinton and Mr. Schwartzman and special photography by Mr. Coppola.

Since Queen Mary 2’s debut nearly 10 years ago, the ship has welcomed film notables such as George Lucas, Uma Thurman, John Cleese and Angela Bassett. Later this summer, Grammy® Award-winning singer-songwriter James Taylor will also join Queen Mary 2 on her August 27 Transatlantic Crossing.
