Absolutely brilliant! Go for it! We did the 2007 Fourth of July round-trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. We went thru' ROL but there were travellers from other offeers (Bath Travel, for one). Beware the Brooklyn Terminal, which is not nearly so user-friendly as Southampton terminals. There are virtually no passenger-use luggage-trolleys and you are almost forced to use the dockies who are not particularly friendly but avid for large tips. The Immigration (west-bound voyage) takes for ever! On the east-bound voyage the UK Immigration people are on board and it's all done during the voyage. The QM2 is amazing. West-bound we had a Force 11 Storm and she simply cut through it "It's what she was built for" said the Captain reassuringly, and east-bound we had 4 days of solid fog (so the Captain was on the Bridge constantly) which made one realise what Titanic met.

Yes we have done this trip, last year on the Queen Mary, It was the most wonderful cruise we have experienced, everything, and I mean everything, was fantastic! We were in New York for 4th July 2006. Please go ahead and book, you will NOT regret it, we would do it again without a doubt. QM2 and New York is just magic, watch the New York skyline as you approach, it brings tears to your eyes! We always book with a special Cruise Agent, I would highly recommend them, their e-mail is info@sovereig www.CRUISE.co.uk and ask for Stefan, you won't regret it, I promise you. Patricia, Derby .

Amazed by Symphony Part 1

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
