Queen Mary 2, the world’s largest ocean liner, sails from the Brooklyn cruise ship pier in Red Hook on eight voyages beginning next Friday, Oct. 2, and ending with a 108-day world tour departing Jan. 4, owner Cunard Lines has announced.

Looking to the future, the Queen Elizabeth on her maiden world voyage will rendezvous with the Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Victoria in the New York harbor on Jan. 13, 2011, repeating to the day a similar event three years ago.

The QM2 usually arrives early at 6:30 a.m. and departs the same day at 5 p.m. Her schedule of cruises sailing from Brooklyn Pier 12 as shown on Cunard charts is:

• Oct. 2 – Autumn Splendors, seven days, New England, Boston and Nova Scotia.

• Oct. 9 – Transatlantic for 20 days with stops in England and France.

• Oct. 29 – Repeat of Autumn Splendors.

• Nov. 5 – Round trip to Southampton, England, her homeport.
