So what is going where the future cruise office was? We have looked at the plans for after the refit and there is no Chart Room marked and Cunardia is still there.
Does anyone have a link to the correct post re fit plans?

To be precise, the Future Cruise Office is moving to where the duty free alcohol and cigarettes were sold,.next to the Queen's Arcade rather than the actual walk through Cunardia exhibition area.
The Chart room is moving next to the champagne bar, sort of sharing the area with Cafe Carinthia, deck 2.

Thanks for any help.
it was my understanding from the world cruise this year and from the staff involved that the sales office will be in that space that is currently the Cunardia exhibit,

Guess the only way to find out is to wait and see but we shall be waiting with baited breath. have a great cruise and please report back!..

regards Roscoe

The interior changes do show show some promise, but her aft is simply unattractive.

Too late now, the one advantage is that you can't see the exterior when you're onboard - lets hope the new interiors make up for it. It will take a certain amount of pride away, I always felt proud of her seeing her from afar whilst in some exotic port.

I hope that feelings return.....

QV has left dry dock, MSC Splendida is in Palermo but sadly QV does not show up on her camera, nor does she show on the Palermo port cam.
