    down loading the E tickets

    I carry a small mini stapler and pre fold the luggage tags and then attach them after baggage pick up. Takes about a minute to do. I always put two tags on each bag ever since one tag came off and the bag delivery got delayed until late evening.

    Access to QM2 Theatre on Deck 1?

    The only access passengers have to deck one is the tender lounges. There is no passenger access below deck 2.

    I would like the new ship to have....

    For what she's asked to do, that extra power us crucial, even if not used regularly. On a transatlantic schedule, delays due to bad weather can't be made up by skipping a port like they are on cruises. Nice as they may be QV and QE wouldn't work on 20+ tranatlantics a year. Look at the delays into NYC the QE has had off season. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    No added sugar desserts on QM2

    If you have specific dietary needs, let head waiter know the first night. Cunard has separate menus for various diets; you provide your specifics, order the night before and you're set. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    Notes from Queen Victoria to the Mediterranean

    They have a fever tree light tonic, but I'm not sure about sugar-free. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    What's Your Favourite Cocktail?

    I've done this many times. You'll even catch the last 15 minutes of the pianist. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    Tuxedo rental on QM2

    I had to rent a shirt once when I brought the wrong size, and that is where I went. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    Britannia Club - price change

    It's the same with airline tickets. Computers have allowed for minute by minute price adjustments based on supply and demand. Sometimes as,a customer we "win", sometimes it's the company. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    QM2 westbound Crossing -must do's?

    If you are at all a night owl, wandering the ship late at night, well after midnight can be a real treat. Walking through the public rooms on deck 2 and 3 when you are all alone, the ship will seem like it's all yours. Then up to the late buffet in the Kings Court because everyone needs a fifth meal of the day at least once in life. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    World Cruising versus Back to Back cruises?

    Queen Elizabeth 2018 Refit

    Lord, I'd enjoy the ship, but would feel like I'm on a high class ferry. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    What's your preferred table size ?

    We share tables on shore all the time. It's called dining out with friends. I figure on board ship, without the friends from home, we're dining out to MAKE friends. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    Dining time on westbound crossing

    With the "real" time changing just about everyday on a TA just "pretend" it's earlier than it is. Have breakfast and lunch an hour later than usual and 8:30 becomes 7:30. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app

    Embarkation Time

    I agree with rv24. I like to enjoy my morning and have a quiet, peaceful lunch, then arrive at the Brooklyn terminal about 1:30 or 2:00. No waiting, short taxi line into the terminal, no need to go to the Kings Court. Just unpack and relax. Sent from my SM-J700T using Forums mobile app
