    Old Havana

    $0.00

    It is a warm evening in Old Havana. You maybe had an early dinner, and are walking along the narrow streets of Old Havana, looking for one of the watering holes, to enjoy a refreshing Daiquiri, or Mojito, and listen to some live music played by a guitar trio… Or you are looking for a “paladar”, a private restaurant, for a late dinner, after a long day visiting museums or any other interesting place…

    The Queen Mary 2 Journey - Luxury Personified: Part One

    $0.00

    REMEMBER WHEN?   LUXURY WAS A GIVEN, AND THE CUNARD SLOGAN WAS “GETTING THERE IS HALF THE FUN”? That was in the Golden Age of transatlantic crossings. When people really going to or from someplace had to resort to sea travel to go long distances.  With the advent of jet planes, carrying more passengers at greater speeds, ocean travel has become almost extinct. But, the QUEEN MARY 2 keeps it alive in all its luxury and splendor on its run from New York (“Brooklyn!”) to Southampton (and some other European destinations).  And I’m telling you, if you have the time, and the money, then treat yourselves to 7 days of luxury, elegance, grand living, and of being suspended in time and place. Getting there really was more than half the fun!!!

  6. Queen Mary 2 - The Voyage, the Ship, the Arrival:  Part Two

    Queen Mary 2 - The Voyage, the Ship, the Arrival: Part Two

    $0.00

    Sea and ship travel nowadays just isn’t the same as it used to be.  People cruise nowadays, they’re not traveling to really get anyplace, and they’re traveling on holidays, with friends and families, with work groups, with associations. They’re cruising to relax, have a good time, be entertained and fed all day, and when they arrive, well, some of them fly straight back!  (And by the way – Cunard has a reciprocal arrangement with British Air for special fares, make sure you enquire about it before leaving).

    The Queen Mary 2 Voyage - Everything You Hoped for in Luxury Cruising: Part 3

    $0.00

    The everyday food onboard ship is absolutely amazing!  Kudos to the Executive Chef, his sous-Chefs, and “the lines”,  plus all the kitchen workers who so diligently produced fine food at every meal.  Breakfast is a wonderful mixture of choices – the traditional English fare, solid, well cooked and tasty (bacon being the biggest treat it seemed!).  There were the Continental breakfasts more on the French style, and then the hearty German ones laden with processed meats and cheeses.  It seemed that everyone subscribed to the English tradition of eating a hearty breakfast to set you up for the rest of the day.

    Caving with Carlin Part 4

    $0.00

    Carlin led us along a scenic hike along the base of a cliff, clambering over a multitude of rocks and the occasional root.  Looking up, there were always towering walls of rock soaring up towards the sky.   We reached this place called “the Anvil” and here we looked up and saw a giant rock formation hanging precipitously over our heads!   I looked around and saw no place to go from here and wondered what Carlin had in mind for us now!  As we took a moment to catch our breath he told us about the rock climbers and how there are several routes up this steep cliff!   In my mind I am saying “are you expecting us to climb up there?”
