Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg shared the spotlight with the world’s most famous ocean liner, Queen Mary 2, when he and other dignitaries gathered for the official opening of the new Brooklyn Cruise Terminal on April 15. The brand-new facility is Queen Mary 2’s new home port in New York City and, as such, the legendary ship docked there, for the first time ever, during the terminal’s official opening ceremony and press conference. Mayor Bloomberg was joined by Andrew Alper, president of the New York City Economic Development Corporation; Marty Markowitz, Brooklyn Borough president; Richard Larrabee, port commerce director, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and Carol Marlow, president and managing director of Cunard Line.
Queen Mary 2 began her 2006 transatlantic season with her departure for Southampton later that day. Crossing the Atlantic from April-November, QM2 is the only ship making regularly scheduled transatlantic crossings between New York and England.
“Cunard’s move to the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal is an exciting new chapter in the history of Cunard Line and we’re looking forward to sharing this celebratory day with the Brooklyn community. This location offers unparalleled views of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty creating a truly memorable start and end to a legendary Cunard voyage,” said Carol Marlow, president and managing director of Cunard Line.
In its first year of operation, the 182,000-square-foot Brooklyn Cruise Terminal is expected to welcome approximately 40 ships, including the new Crown Princess launching in June 2006. The Terminal adds 330 new, permanent jobs to the Brooklyn waterfront.
Queen Mary 2 is the grandest ocean liner ever built. There are 1,310 suites and cabins available in degrees of style and comfort ranging from pampered elegance to almost unimaginable luxury in the ship’s famed Grill-level accommodations. Queen Mary 2 brings together like-minded travelers who relish the Cunard hallmarks of impeccable White Star Service, fine dining, sophisticated adventure and legacy of historic voyages and transatlantic travel.
In New York, crowds of well-wishers converged on Brooklyn’s working waterfront as well as other waterfront areas to view the Queen Mary 2.
Two cruise lines sail out of Brooklyn, New York. From the splendor of Cunard Line to the value of Princess Cruises, there is a variety of prices and styles available. Brooklyn cruise line destinations include England, the Caribbean, Canada, New England and a world cruise.
