Richb, thanks for taking the time to report on your trip. It's been ages (December) for us too since being on SD. As far as specialty drinks, we once sailed with a lady from the Netherlands that...

Boring out here in a Hum free zone. But still, Bon Voyage to HH and Blondie on SDII today. :D

The farthest forward on QM2 we have stayed was 4007 and we found it very comfortable. I doubt you would ever have the problem of "boom! shake, shake, shake" forward on QM2 as is common on normal...

Lots of interesting ports but, and this is just one person's opinion, it seems more than half the days are sea days. Not trying to start a rant about the "good old days" but QE2 used her speed...

I second all you say about ATN. I too have flown many airlines in many parts of the world and think ATN is the worst ever. As much as we loved the PG, unless they sail in other parts of the world,...

Thanks for the info Chief. It prompted memories of the "good ole days" on freight ships with only tank water. The potable water could be quite "iffy" depending on the port. Our Ch Eng. would...

We prefer cabs. Driving is a pain and parking a problem in most areas. Just our opinion.

As Westies, we would love the opportunity for a Cunard Alaska voyage. I agree it would be a magnificent fit.:D Wouldn't mind a Cunard Mexican voyage either.

We have been on SeaDream from both SXM ports. Usually Philipsburg is the fall back if Marigot is too rough. If scheduled for Philipsburg, I would feel confident that it will stay in Philipsburg. ...

Darn! Sold my clubs back when we moved aboard our boat. Back to the dress. I will pack a sport coat in Europe but not the Caribbean. Always long slacks or khakis in the evening with a collared...

That's a bit sad. I first sailed Cunard as a child and my first time on QE2 I was 21, sailing alone, and it was anything but stuffy and formal. The Queen's Room was formal with ballroom type...

As usual, Blondie is correct.. I merely mentioned we were chums with Ho-Hum and the exodus began. Every port a few more left....

That's more like it sir. Appreciate it Bigly! Sounds like some of the crew we liked on our trip have left. Living at sea is a tough life even without the family from h*ll.

We have stayed at the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort right by the airport and enjoyed both the facility and the food. Also right near the world famous Sunset Bar. Great for watching airplanes and near...

Hi ,
Last month we flew STT/SJU to catch our "real" plane. STT was an early flight so we did not get to stay aboard for a nice breakfast. Usually they let you stay till about 10am, local...
