There are about 50 in our CC group going on the Dawn tomorrow. I'm sure one of us will be computer savy enough to post pictures when we return.

Should be the worst day ever. High security for the QM2. Lots of media. 3 big ships.

I would still love to be there

It should be a real zoo. We just got back from just looking at her and the whole Westside is a mess. The backup begins 2 miles or more from the curise terminal. From NJ take the port imperial ferry and walk(no kidding) Leave the Car in the Port Imperial lot. I don't think it will matter when you get there it will be impossible.

PS we drove to NJ had some shopping to do anyway and had a great view from the Port Imperial parking lots....

PPS my wife is suggesting you get there before 9am as an alternative and you can watch everything.

no luck both the north EPS and pied piper are off the air. The south cam on EPS is working so you will be able to pick them up as they depart if the weather holds.
