Falmouth "Cruise"

Post  Brian_O on Mon Sep 06, 2010 3:54 am

I don't remember exactly when the so-called Falmouth Cruise happened but it was sometime between the Falklands War and October 1984.

QE2 departed Southampton bound for New York but suffered engine problems in the Channel. She limped into Falmouth and spent 5 days there before continuing on to New York. Many of the passengers were flown to the States but many others remained aboard for what turned out to be a 10-day crossing. I read about it in the Montreal Gazette at the time and in October 1985 met a couple of women from Detroit who stayed on board for the entire 10 days.

Does anyone have any details or dates?

Do you know how they got back on schedule? They must have cancelled at least one voyage. I do know that they were back on schedule by October 3 when I boarded in New York.
