A New York Times Crossword-Themed Cruise Will Set Sail

3,000 wordsmiths will have the opportunity to sail the seas while completing their favorite crossword puzzles.

The New York Times first printed it’s famous brain teaser in 1942, becoming a daily feature in 1950. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of its crossword puzzle, the Times is partnering with Cunard for a one of a kind trip.

The 9-day transAtlantic crossing will leave New York on December 7th, 2017, for Southhampton, England. Every morning, guests on Cunard’s luxurious flagship, the Queen Mary 2, will wake up to the next day’s Times crossword puzzle slipped under their cabin door.

If you have ever wondered why or how a word was chosen for the crossword puzzle, this cruise is a chance to hear straight from some of the Times’ crossword editors. With balcony cabins starting at almost $2900 per person, the Cunard cruise costs a bit more than the Sunday Times, but some people will do anything to figure out the 11-letter word to fill 19 across.
