Earlier this month we had the chance to set sail once again on the Queen Mary two and once again we loved it.
This trip was a little bit different because we were doing a cruise instead of a crossing and we went from New York City up to Halifax Canada then down to Boston for the Fourth of July and back to New York. I think Craig still prefers a crossing but we still had a great time!
We were also able to take our 16 year old niece Renée with us on this trip so that was a little bit different you were definitely not used to having teenagers around us 24/7. ;) Our friends Brian and Eric joined us as well and with them around we always have a good time.
We got to New York on June 29 and we had a great first day we went up to the Empire State building and Time Square and to Tiffany's so Renée could see where her favorite actress stood in her favorite movie (Audrey in Breakfast at Tiffany's)
We also happen to be in New York during gay pride week so Renée ended up seeing a lot more of the world and she'd ever seen before. Oops! Of course this was the first thing she told her mom and grandparents about! But we took it all in stride and we had a great time!
We set sail on July 1 and then for the next five days we called the QM2 our home. Renée had a little berth to call her own above my bed and of course Craig loved every minute that he was on board. We loved being back on board. We had such a good time, enjoyed the company and the great food.
While we were in Halifax we were able to go to four different graveyards where Titanic victims were buried. That was really touching an emotional and a really good experience. We also went to the Halifax Maritime Museum and were able to see some of the most famous and interesting pieces of wreck wood and Wreckage from Titanic. Pretty much this was Craig's Titanic dreams all coming true all in this one day and he had a great time!
While we were in Boston we are able to meet up with my parents and spend the afternoon with them. We saw the old State House Paul Revere's house and old North Church we also had some amazing Italian food and cannolis. Yum!
Of course we always love the time that we can spend on the QM2 because she is such a classy lady. I'm trying to convince my parents that they should think about scheduling their own crews are crossing on QM2 let's see if they really do it.
