A few miles out..


Welcome to San Francisco…


“like what’s that?”-“I don’t know but its hella big”


Entering the narrow Golden Gate Channel…






Knock Knock….who’s there?




Her Majesty comes through our front door…




There were crowds on shore…


Maneuvering San Francisco Bay…




“Can you believe these parking rates”-says the captain..

I recently got back from a transatlantic crossing aboard the QM2 a couple of weeks ago. I'm still on a buzz from it. She's a beauty. I counted 11 hot tubs, five pools, a tennis court, basketball court, golf simulators, casino, several good bars, the gorgeous Canyon Ranch Spa, and a host of dining options.

The service was impeccable and the ship was immaculate. Better, however, to pay a surcharge to dine in Todd English's restaurant on board. The Britannia Restaurant was good, but King's Court dining was merely OK.

Anyway, if you are interested, here are some pics I took while on board:



The sail-away party, with the New Jersey skyline on the left, downtown Manhattan center, and Brooklyn on the right:



Sailing under the Verazzano-Narrows bridge, with 17 feet to spare...



Some pics of the decks...







The spare propulsion blades are stored on the foredeck as sculptural elements...



The Britannia Restaurant:





The grand lobby:



The Chart Room, site of many cabaret concerts:



The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts' interpretation of "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the ship's main theatre:

^Definitely DO IT! It's really a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Tip: If you want to have a cabin with a balcony, I'd suggest the "in-hull" balconies on decks 4-6. If weather is bad, the ship will close the upper, exposed balconies but the recessed, in-hull balconies will remain open. They can be enjoyed even in windy weather. Of course, you can always pop for the $45,000 staterooms with a private butler, 2 floors and personal gym.:)
