This is it for the 2010 cruise season in Halifax. By all accounts a successful one. A fitting finale was this evening's sailing of Queen Mary 2 with a polite salute to Halifax on her departure. There seems to be a bit of a problem synchronizing all three chimes (whistles), but when they are all sounding at once it is just about as impressive as it gets.
The ship's master was recognized for his role in aiding a small craft in difficulty on the ship's last call in Halifax. QM2 diverted to the boat and stood by for several hours until the Coast Guard could get to the scene.
