August 23, 2012 By: Newswire Travel Agent

In conjunction with Julien’s Auctions of Beverly Hills, Cunard Line is offering guests the opportunity to view and purchase items of famed actress Greta Garbo during Queen Mary 2’s Nov. 20 2012 Transatlantic Crossing. Additionally, during the voyage, Garbo’s great nephew, Derek Reisfield, will headline Cunard's on-board enrichment program, Cunard Insights, where he will provide a personal account of her life and iconic Hollywood career.

The on board auction and display will give guests a preview of Julien’s December 2012 Garbo auction event in Beverly Hills, and will feature several of her most photographed belongings including her cashmere turtleneck and vintage umbrella used to shield herself from paparazzi. Relics from Garbo's world travels, including her vintage Louis Vuitton suitcase, travel watch and a luggage tag bearing her travel alias, will also be on display for guests’ viewing pleasure.

During his guest lectures for Cunard Insights, Derek Reisfield will recall personal stories from the actress’ life, learned during his weekly childhood gatherings with her.  Topics will also include career highlights, Garbo’s personal relationships with dignitaries and celebrities such as President John F. Kennedy, Sir Winston Churchill and William Randolph Hearst, and will highlight her lesser-known historical contributions to American and British military intelligence during World War II.
