My tour operator (Cruise.com) advised me to get a taxi when I arrived at the terminal. What is happening.

Burfoot - Answered a Question by Nield (06 Mar 08 16:22)

You cannot pre book a taxi for NY. the crusie terminal in Brooklyn is too new for most cab drivers to even know where it is!! You should be able to easily arrange a coach transfer to manhattan from the terminal through your travel agent. otherwise your travel agent or cunard can arrange a private hire car for about $100-$200 (I think that is the price!) However, saying that, most local cabbies will know when the big ships dock, so picking up a cab locally shouldn't be a problem, but for peace of mind for yourself i would defintly book a coach or a private hire car through your travel agent. we had no problem getting transfers on the 2 occasions we sailed with qm2. both of these were booked through victoria travel / www.CRUISE.co.uk. hope this helps.

Burfoot is spot on most New Yorks Taxi drivers do not know where South Brooklyn is. We got hailed a taxi he stopped allowed us to get into his cab then less than 1 minute later apologised and kicked us out due to not knowing where Red Hook was. Thankfully, another taxi driver knew where to take us and I am sure charged us no more than $15 which was fair and cheap. He did a great job and we boarded QM2 and a great voyage to the UK. Travel agents can be a pain and may not want to sorth this for you, but hey, watch what they charge.

I would definatly arrange somthing before you arrive either through your agent or from the voyage information that is sent to before you leave you can also book transport through the tour desk on the ship .. YES all types of transport will be a little expensive .I have done this transatlantic crossing many times the worst thing about the voyage is the standing in line waiting to get a cab into town or back to the AIRPORT.. remember there will be well over a thousand or so dissembarking ALL WITH THE SAME IDEA ! not a way to end all that five star service you have just received.. go on and splash out I know it might cost you but you have peace of mind knowing you have some sort of confirmed transport to get you into town ( cut down on two bots of wine) good luck' Paul ( PS you asked the question FROM THE SHIP .. the other way around there is not the same problem.

Fred Olsen & a few Guinness!

By Barbara Hopley

On 15th December we headed to Liverpool to join Fred Olsen Boudicca for annual Christmas Conference for 3 nights, the 1st night the ship stayed docked in port in Liverpool. This is a great city and the dock is right in the center opposite the Liver Building so within walking distance to the city. We didn’t have time to see Liverpool as we drove up in the morning leaving at 7am to arrive by 11am. Luckily the traffic was on our side so we arrived early. Myself & my colleague Teresa...

I have blogged about this before as there have been an unacceptable number of deaths in Swimming pools on-board cruise ships and yet only Disney Cruise lines employed actual Life guards to monitor their pools.Well it looks like things are changing. At the end of December Royal Caribbean started advertising for Lifeguards on their ships.The Post Stated that candidates will need to perform rescue of Guests in danger of drowning and be vigilant to potential accidents. Will be trained to administ...
