Richard Okill - Answered a Question by Andrew Banyard (29 Nov 08 14:45)

Hi Andrew. I take it that you are on the 26 September Autumn Colours and are doing the whole cruise. Whether on the whole, or a combination, you will have to clear US Customs on first arrival at Brooklyn Terminal. Of four arrivals at this terminal in the last 2 years clearance has been extremely quick. Cunard have a well tuned system at this terminal. You will be called forward depending on what your New York itinerary is: organised New York tour, do it yourself, or staying onboard. You will still need one of these new ESTA Authorisations whatever your plans. The website will guide you through the whole routine and is very simple. I think the majority of moans regarding clearance of US Immigration come from those joining in New York via the airports. . Have a look at my QM2 review dated 20 July this year, 10th paragraph says it all. I'm convinced that you will have a wonderful time and am envious. If you have any other queries, send me a question. Happy cruising. Richard. PS In Halifax the Titanic Cemetery is a most interesting visit.

Hi Richard, Many thanks for your reply. Very helpful info. I have noticed you seem to be an expert on all things Cunard. All very useful for us cruise novices! Regarding the ESTA authorisation. Which website do I use to obtain this? Thanks.

With most River Cruise Lines drinks are included with Lunch & Dinner as standard, if you are a drinker or not and include Wine, Beer & Soft Drinks. However often my clients will tell me they dont drink or one of the party drinks and the other one doesn’t so this is false econom...
