Sailing Into NYC Harbor-@4:30 am . Spectacular View. Our smokestack just cleared the Verranzano Narrows Bridge by a few feet!
After six sea days, it is great to see first land, on this special July crossing of The Atlantic.
Sailing across The Pond - The Atlantic Ocean, on the shortest bridge between New York and Europe - The Queen Mary2. It is not a Cruise but a Voyage, nor a cruise ship, rather A Liner, the last of the great ocean-going liners.
The Queen Mary 2 comes to Hamburg every year.
For her tenth jubilee she got a special celebration.
I took lots of videos, and posted them for my my friends on Facebook, but this one pretty much sums up the crowds enthusiastic response as the flagship sails away down The Elbe River to open waters in the North Atlantic...
