The Trip 

So, for this summer excursion…my daughter and I have a short flight into the New York area , one night in New York, then 7 glorious nights  on Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 before disembarking in Southampton, catching a ride up to London and staying in the London area for a total of 11 adventurous days. We will then be taking her first transatlantic flight back home in time for 4th of July. 

A lot of this trip excites me.  Adventure has always been something that inspires and excites me. Getting opportunities to meet new people, and explore places I’ve never been also excites me. 

I’ve been calling Cunard once to twice a week since I first got it in my head that I wanted to make this trip. Let me tell you something, you won’t find nicer customer service agents anywhere. Not only are they happy to assist you with your questions, but they go the extra mile to make sure their answer is thorough.

2 days ago, I called concerning the different dining options available to us on QM2. I can solidly say, after that conversation, that E and I should not lack for options. I will probably write more extensively on the options either tonight or tomorrow, as well as my thoughts on each.  

I think my favorite thing about the trip is recognizing that there are many facets/aspects of the trip that I can pull apart in the quiet hours of the evening. I probably will have as much time in exploring before the trip as I will on the trip itself. 

I look forward to sharing all of it with you.
