Autumn East Coast Dance Cruise New York to Quebec on Cunard's Queen Mary 2.

The Autumn Escape itineraryINDEX to Autumn East Coast Dance Cruise New York to Quebec on QM2

This is a nine night cruise out of Brooklyn, along the US East Coast calling at Newport, Boston, Bar Harbor, up to Halifax, and then along the St. Lawrence River to Quebec City before returning to Brooklyn. Our group will enjoy ballroom dancing each night with dance workshops on sea days - meeting up with old friends and making new ones. As well this is a  tour through the culinary offerings aboard the Queen Mary 2 on this voyage - although obviously reflecting my food favorites.
