When the ship Queen Mary 2 sailed into New York harbor, amid great pomp and circumstance, giving trans-Atlantic travel and waterfront a much-needed shot in the arm, the author would have done almost anything to have been on board. Well, short of actually paying for a stateroom, of course. The author fell in love with ships early. His experiences aboard Cunard ships had happier endings. The author and his family sailed out of New York for Cherbourg, France and Southampton, England aboard the original Queen Mary.
