It's all aboard!
AT THE end of an Atlantic voyage passengers still crowd on deck of Cunard cruise liners to be greeted by the Statue of Liberty.
It is an unforgettable sight and an amazing end to a voyage that started in Southampton a week earlier.
When we made the journey, there was a real sense of occasion as the Queen Mary 2 glided up to Pier 88 in midtown Manhattan. The journey to New York was a remarkable adventure and one that was totally different to any other cruise.
For a start, it was non-stop, so if the ship fails to keep you entertained it could be a very long week, with no prospect of getting off. To raise the bar further, we made the voyage in November. No lolling by the pool – just short days, long nights and the prospect of poor weather.

If the QM2 could deliver an enjoyable holiday in those circumstances it would be doing very well indeed. And it did.
Outside the sea is raging, while inside men in dinner jackets and women in long dresses are sipping Champagne and wondering what to choose from the restaurant menus.
With so many things on offer it is unlikely you will be bored – lectures, recitals, flower arranging, acting classes with RADA, dancing lessons, great performers and professionally staged shows.
Turn the corner and there are women of a certain age playing cards, while up a few decks golfers are using the driving range. Use the gym, have a massage or a facial, take afternoon tea to the sound of a string quartet, or watch a 3D film.
