We will check-out of the hotel, board a motorcoach, and ride to the Stonewall Inn, where a riot broke out on the night of June 28, 1969, effectively launching the Gay Rights movement. We’ll discuss its special place in modern history with our Study Leader. We’ll also take some time to linger in Christopher Park across the street, part of the Stonewall National Monument — the first official National Park Service unit dedicated to telling the story of LGBTQ Americans. We will re-group at an agreed upon time and place the Group Leader will announce, ride to the cruise terminal where the Queen Mary 2 is berthed, and begin boarding procedures.
Late lunch aboard the Queen Mary 2.
After completing boarding procedures and getting your cabin, take some time to freshen up and begin to familiarize yourself with the ship. We will participate with the rest of the passengers in the required Safety Drill before departure, so please listen for the announcement.

At leisure. You might like to see a show in the ballroom, watch a movie in the theatre, have a beverage and a chat in one of the bars, or find a book in the library — one of the best shipboard libraries available — and curl up in that perfect reading chair. The choice is yours.
