VALENCIA, Calif. — Luxury cruise line Cunard and venerable magazine The New Yorker have partnered to offer guests an exciting opportunity to explore the world of cartoons while aboard the flagship ocean liner Queen Mary 2.

During select 2018 transatlantic crossings from June to November, celebrated cartoonists of the acclaimed magazine will host exclusive drawing sessions, workshops, hands-on demonstrations and caption contests for passengers.

The New Yorker, known for its single-panel cartoons, has offered a signature mix of news, culture, and the arts since its founding in 1925.

“We are excited to partner with the creative cartoonist team at the New Yorker to entertain our guests onboard Cunard’s Queen Mary 2,” said Josh Leibowitz, senior vice president, Cunard North America. “Our goal at Cunard is to offer extraordinary experiences to our guests, and we look forward to welcoming The New Yorker team onto these four Queen Mary 2 voyages.”

More about the onboard experts who will be joining these voyages:

Emily Flake will be part of the July 20, 2018 (M827) voyage. Flake has been cartooning for The New Yorker since 2008 and is also the author of Mama Tried: Dispatches from the Seamy Underbelly of Modern Parenting.

Matt Diffee is set to join the June 10 (M821) and November 11, 2018 (M843) Crossings. Author of “Hand Drawn Jokes for Smart Attractive People” and the editor of three volumes of “The Rejection Collection: Cartoons You Never Saw and Never Will See in The New Yorker,” Diffee has been contributing cartoons to The New Yorker since 1999. His work has also appeared in Time, The Huffington Post, The Believer and Texas Monthly. Diffee received the Silver Reuben Award for best single-panel cartoonist of the year and he was recently named Chairman of the Los Angeles Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society.

David Sipress will join the transatlantic voyage departing August 26, 2018 (M832). Sipress’ work has appeared in the Boston Phoenix, Time, Parade, Playboy, Funny Times, The Washington Post, Harper’s, Gastronomica, and Shambhala Sun. Sipress also lectures on the art of the cartoon and has published eight collections of his work. In 2016, Sipress was awarded the National Cartoonists Society’s Reuben Award for Gag Cartooning.

Ben Schwartz will be joining the October 7, 2018 Crossing (M838A). Schwartz has been a contributing cartoonist for The New Yorker since 2012.
