Smooth sailing

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

We really enjoy the transatlantic crossings and this was our third on the Queen Mary 2. We were disappointed that much of the entertainment was the same that we saw on previous cruises but the new members of the dance troupe were fantastic. Best dancers we have ever seen on land or sea and the RADA actors are always fabulous. Canterbury Tales was great but we found Merchant of Venice a little heavy going. We ate most of our meals in the Britannia Dining Room. Service at dinner was quite good and we appreciated being recognized by a couple of staff members we met on previous trips. Food was perhaps a little less varied and not as memorable as earlier cruises. We weren't all that impressed with the refurbishing done to the ship since our last cruise and missed the clothing shop now replaced by an expensive (and mostly free of customers)cosmetic/perfume boutique.

We stayed overnight before the cruise in Brooklyn at the new Comfort Inn Brooklyn Cruise Terminal which was excellent More and very close to the pier. Our only complaint about the hotel was the free shuttle dropped us on the street across from the terminal and it was a long way to walk with luggage, especially as one member of our party is handicapped.
