Eastward Transatlantic Crossing 8th September 2016
Clive & Pat Phillips | November 5, 2016 | Cunard | Queen Mary 2
A wonderful cruise after four frenetic days sightseeing in New York, enhanced by a day at Halifax Nova Scotia Canada and visits to the Annapolis Valley and Grand Pre Vineyards and the Town of Wolfville for lunch.
Besides a slow embarkation check in, at Brooklyn docks New York, our time on board was most enjoyable with service and high standards expected on Cunard Cruises. There was plenty to do and be involved in during the transatlantic crossing including having the National Symphony Orchestra on board and being able to get involved in a choir to perform on the 14th September Cunard Proms evening. During rehearsals and the performance we great fun under the direction and conductor Anthony Inglis who with help from the musicians made it a wonderful memorable occasion.
We had dinner in the Verandah restaurant one evening and the dining experience was extremely good with delicious dishes and excellent service.
The whole experience of our nine day voyage on Queen Mary was really good and we met and enjoyed the company of a number of other guests on board. Staff were very helpful and obliging. All in all a wonderful journey and experience.
