Major Snow Storm Delays Cunard Ship

Cunard Line has announced that the departure of the Queen Mary 2 from New York City will be delayed significantly due to the current snow storm.

The announcement was made via Cunard’s Twitter account:



Cunard Line is encouraging guests who are sailing to check in at the scheduled time at the Red Hook Cruise Terminal. Guests will be able to board the ship at the scheduled time and have full access to the ship’s facilities.

A statement sent to Cruise Currents from Cunard explains the primary reason for the ship’s delay:

“Queen Mary 2 is currently docked at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, having arrived late last night in anticipation of the arriving snow in the New York area.  The terminal remains accessible and operational at this time and disembarkation commenced earlier this morning. In order to accommodate late-arriving passengers, the ship will now sail no earlier than midnight tonight.”

1/4 Update: Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 departed New York City at approximately 1 am eastern time on January 4th. The Queen Mary 2 is sailing a transatlantic voyage and is scheduled to arrive in Southampton on January 10th. No impact to her arrival in Southampton has been announced at this time.
