  1. We enjoy the coffee after dinner with dessert, it always comes with milk. We ask for cream and this brings the coffee to an entirely different level,,I wish I could find cream like this at home for my coffee..
  2. I just called, both must have the same, but I got the deluxe drink package for a bit more than 50% off, must be a sale on, just got it for our sailing next May for $24 Canadian each per day..he said it may vary per reservation, but even though I do not drink, it was a deal...coffee sold in Starbucks not included, but it does state premium coffee included any ideas of what that really means?? Will I still get lattes etc.? They do do have a coffee card for $45 for 15 drinks, so could buy that if needed considering the deal we just got.
  3. We are in cabin 8014 on Qm2 Nov 9 across the Atlantic and back from nyc. Figured wouldn’t be spending a lot of time on the balcony, but would allow fresh air if needed and...A bit more light compared to sheltered and was less expensive . anyone had this room and have feedback to give?
  4. Have a great compact canon. With 40 zoom, taken approx at 9 am on dec 8th, this new one is even closer and another further away
  5. Pic taken on dec 8 in port just before disembarking
  6. We have done both, regular cabin and grills lounge , both have the same assortment but the grills is very quick as a small group, was usually in and out in 10 -15 mins.. we were on QM2 inmate November and they walked around with items, no stands with food..in the grills concierge lounge, yes they have items that are self serve at that time of afternoon tea
  7. Funny, we are doing the same thing, this year we did the November Caribbean cruise, next year will be the round trip 16 night leaving NYC on the 10th,,,we enjoy the ship so much this felt like the best thing as will have 12 sea days and 6 formal nights and the price was about the same and get 4 more nights
  8. We’ve been in reg and recently princess grill, we thought the coffee was great in the grills especially when we use real cream..(which we save from another breakfast order with coffee)...it was so good we proceeded to buy the same illy coffee at home, to be disappointed that it did not taste the same...room service coffee is good in grills or Britannia..why not spoil yourselves
  9. We asked on the nov 25th cruise and were told both of us required to buy the package. I don’t drink so not worth it. For the the coffee we were on QM2 in August and bought a coffee card for $38, which worked out to $3.80 per cup, then on Queen Elizabeth, they had a coffee package, same as this one but it was $8.50 a day, and I only bought it...even that was hard had to have 3 good lattes to go past the value...$15 is too high bring back the coffee card, either one of us or both could get a coffee...
  10. We travelled on qm2 this summer, received our large case after embankment with missing wheel, made it really awkward for getting off and on to next ship then airport at the end...that one got thrown out. They broke another one on Saturday as we disembarked in nyc, cracked the case and broke a wheel, and we had another broken in 2011, they do not cover any damage...so far 3, as far as I know they were within the limit, so I feel not so much how much they weigh , but the problem can be how they load, stack and unload luggage
  11. We just got off QM2 and I saw more shorter dresses and pant with nice tops vs gowns this time...as noted maybe more at Xmas, but expect not all gowns.
  12. We are on our way home...great cruise...but I did notice a slight decline in dress...men are still mostly in tuxes on gala nights, but long evening gowns are not seen as much as in past cruises ...would say maybe 20%..this is the first time I felt overdressed. Also not a lot of ties on the other nights for men, mostly shirt with jackets..saw the same thing on QE this last summer the weather was great as were the seas...food excellent as normal. looking forward to our cruise next nov 10th
  13. Hi Mudhen, we will see you onboard and maybe at dinner as we are in PG as well
