It’s here! It’s finally here! After a breakfast from the 9th Ave Gourmet Deli at the corner and some great coffee from Arvaci next door then making sure we were packed and ready, we summoned an Uber ride and enjoyed chatting with our driver. Now here we are at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, checked in, and waiting to be summoned to board. Got disappointing news this morning, friends we expected to see on board have had to reschedule their trip, we’ve promised to raise a glass to their future adventures. Now we’re about to hear the call us for to board. Let the party begin! Life is an Adventure!

Follow the Queen Mary 2 on Cruisemapper.

More photos later but we want to post this before we sail on under the Verrazano Bridge and lose our connectivity until next Friday.

    Hello, we met you at Prison City Brewery on Saturday, August 12. NYC is always a fun and adventuresome trip, have a great time on that cruise!!!!
    We just spent the past couple of weeks in Montreal, ME and Acadia National Park, an incredible start to our adventure!!
    We’re on our way back home (to Sanborn, NY suburb of Niagara Falls, NY) for a couple weeks before we start heading south on September, 18th. We started posting pics of our travels on our blog. (it’s not as nice as your website, but it works for us).
    Enjoy your travels,
    Dave and Chellie Zwara

When Plans Go Awry

A string of unexpected problems complicated our transition from Southampton to Haarlem but calm problem solving and a sense of adventure led to unpredicted delights and a story for the ages.
