  1. Yes, yes and yes. Last year I had two transatlantic crossings booked. One week before the first one my travelling companion had to have emergency surgery. Had to cancel this trip. Recovery went very well and everything was set for the next cruise five months later. Then days before the second one my travelling companion had a fall and hip surgery ensued. Hence a second cancelled crossing. I had purchased Cunard Care(luckily). Claiming involved a one page form, the Doctor’s signature and uploading it to a website. The claim was settled very quickly and the fares refunded. So in my situation or rather situations-it worked very well. Now I know my credit card has travel insurance but I always hear stories about how it can be hard to claim. In my experience Cunard Care was very easy to deal with. Hopefully I never ever have to use it again! Of course I was really really really looking forward to a trip I booked this year. Of course that did not work well. Fingers crossed for 2021!
  2. Although I knew it was going to happen, seeing my May transatlantic get cancelled was still sad (and with C19 I would not have gone should have gone ahead anyway) In time I am sure everything will return to relative normal and I can’t wait for the rush of excitement that comes with that first step off of the gangplank and onto the QM2!
  3. It appears that this indeed is the case. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.businessinsider.com/leaked-audio-cunard-cruises-queen-victoria-has-cases-of-covid-19-2020-4%3famp
  4. Ah rust! A couple of years ago I did a transatlantic and I had a balcony cabin on deck 11 towards the aft. Now “the wall” (for lack of a better word) that divides the back open decks from the superstructure was a brilliant white (and of course punctuated by the black “stripes”). Over the course of the 7 days you could see the rust forming and tarnishing the white. By the time of arrival in Southampton you would have thought it had not been painted in years yet only 7 days before it was perfect. Travelling back a week later it had all been touched up. So all in all “rust” happens!
  5. Hi! Those little guys eating the chicken are mine (the gluttons)! You do not need to walk your dog on a lead(you can if you want to). They have the whole side and back deck to run around. The back part is great for running up and down with your dog. The nice thing is that all the excitement tends to make the dogs tired and by 8:30 pm they are ready for bed! I have always noticed that for the first two days all the dogs are pretty excited as they get used to the new routine but after a while become super "chill" and relaxed.
  6. Hi Zoe, I have taken my dogs on the QM2 a total of ten times. The kennels ...in my humble opinion ...are excellent. First of all the Kennel Masters are excellent. I have had Kennel Master Oliver each time and I can not speak more highly of him. There is also a second Kennel Master now. They take such good care of the dogs. There is plenty of space to exercise and play with your dogs. There are lots of visiting hours throughout the day. Here is a great video (in French). At the 16 minute mark there is a tour of the kennels(small disclaimer: my little dogs are in it!) https://youtu.be/kTnihBslQZQ
