Can't agree more. Please check to see that your transfer is or is not included. We will be on the same Caribbean trip as you in January. We did the QM2 Transatlantic in 2005...brilliant We fly from Manchester and transfers are included. Have a great holiday Might see you around. Clive Smit.

It could be that your transit to the Docks will be arranged by Cunard and you can find this out by asking the agents you booked with. I, however, you are making your own way to the QM2 birth in Brooklyn do no take a taxi offered by a tout at the airport but go to ground transportation information counters where you will get an official Yellow Cab and the fait for the 12 mile journey will be about $50. Hope this helps….Id.

Best Low Cost CruisesSince the advent of low-cost airlines, savvy travellers have come to realise that no-frills doesn’t mean no-satisfaction. Indeed, what is often perceived as prudent when it comes to air travel also holds true in cruising.Most British cruise lines would recoil in horror at being termed ‘budget’ so keep in their good books I will term them Low Cost.

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...
