    Bag Weights to Measure Up

    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

    Gala Evening Christmas Ball

    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.
  3. 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

    Cunard Black Friday Sale

    We booked yesterday for 16 night nyc to nyc November 2019. Price in Canadian was $3311 for DF on the 19th. Yesterday it was $2999. But no OB or free grat for Britainna. But the price difference from the day before was still better even taking into account the cost of grat. Note. As this was a discount sale future cruise credits are not allowed. Which is not in the fine print on certificate nor website. But it is in cunards notes for the sale code.

    your cruise card is your door card and I have seen many sparkly land yards...I just give mine to my husband to Carry If I don’t have a purse or pockets in my outfit 😀 and the room safe is a code you enter

    Travel Agent or Book On Board?

    When we were on QE this summer...the price of the cruise we wanted to book was very high, they recommended we purchase a future cruise certificate for a deposit of $360 CAN each...good for 4 years...so can wait til a good deal comes along and then book and get the standard credit you would get if booked on board.. Interested in the platinum comment, how much credit are you offered, we are going on QM2 in late November and will be our first cruise as platinum Sent from my iPad using Forums

    Guaranteed cabin

    The same thing happened to us a few cruises ago, we booked a room on deck 8 with a little bit of a view, but noted we would take an upgrade..ended up on deck 4, technically sheltered balcony is in a higher category than instructed view on deck 8 in the end we paid more and got a better room but we have had sheltered a few times, it is ok as you have a full view, but only when standing, and I found the room slightly darker than a room with a glass balcony find it interesting that deck 4 is not an option when you book, I think it is reserved to move people around.

  13. Loved it, upgraded last Xmas on QM2 when we saw the price dip for a few days..it was amazing, personally not worth the huge price difference as we can get 2 cruises for the price of one, but when a deal is too be had, go for it...the grill lounge was great for relaxing before dinner and having afternoon tea in a personalized setting..they also had a few private grill lounge entertainment options that we loved...the personal attention to detail at dinner etc is also amazing...
