Smile Queen Mary 2 X-Atlantic, Nov 12, 2013, roll call

David and Dave are crossing. This will be my 3rd time on Mary2, although first crossing. I have sailed her before on 2 cruises. 10 years earlier, crossed on QE2.

We are hoping to meet friends of Dorothy.

Hi David and Dave, My pal Ron and I will be on this crossing with you. I originally planned to go eastbound, spend some time in the UK and then come back on this crossing, but in the end we would have been away from home too long. So we will fly over and come back with the Mary.

This will be our 11 time on board and I think 8th TA, but I cannot remember exactly how many times. Each time has been a delight though. I will look forward to meeting you at the Friends of Dorothy in the Commodore club on the first afternoon out.

Cheers and Best Mike.

David, I for one am looking foward to my vacation in the UK and the Westbound crossing. I have fill up my English days with things to do and evenings for dinners in favorite restaurants and a couple of new ones too. The White Star Luggage packet arrived yesterday and I am getting all of the clothing checked, laundered and cleaned and ready to pack for a 29th October pick up.

And, I am now checking the message boards for new roll call entries. A fellow named Stuart is going to be on the crossing, from Hamburg, and I have invited him to join us here as well.

Any other FODs on the crossing?

Mike

Hi, all,

Excited to be boarding in Hamburg for the 9 night crossing home to NYC. On my own for this trip (travelled with friend this summer) so looking forward to meeting other FODs in the Commodore Club either day after Hamburg departure or Wed, 13th.

Stuart

Stuart, Welcome to this side of the roll calls. We will look forward to meeting you face to face on the 13th. (or maybe the afternoon of sailing about 5 pm?) As you will be aboard and should be well relaxed from your massage....

Mike

Sounds good, Mike. Is the group meeting for a sail away party somewhere?
