  1. Brilliant thank you both for your reply. We are on Q027 leaving Vancouver 8th Sept. Thanx
  2. Hi is there anyway to find out what cabins are available on board, looking at changing rooms but want to see whats available first. Thanx Allison
  3. Hi I can only see Guest Speakers up to April on QE is that all there is showing or am I doing something wrong? Looking for September 2020.
  4. Thanks everyone for your replies. Lakesregion we dont plan on selling the pieces we get we buy then because we like them and they will eventually be left for our grand kids so the more Grand kids we have the more cruises we have to take:)
  5. Hi just wondering if we buy some "Art" while onboard (thinking a bronze) are we able to take it with us when we leave the ship? We bought some last time we were onboard but they shipped them to us and the freight and customs worked out to be dearer than the item!! Thanx
  6. Hi sfred Thank you so much for that information the PDF is brilliant so much to see and do.Im sure I will have lots more questions once I have sat down and studied it.The coastal walk looks amazing. Thanks again. Hope those fires are far enough away from you,terrible things. Regards Allison
  7. Thanks everyone for your replies and weather reports as I cant do anything about the weather I will ignore it for now. Sfred can you tell me what you did in Aomori and Sapporo if anything as we have never been to Aisia and are not sure if it will be easy to walk around doing our own thing or should we get on a ship tour. I see you speak nearly the same language as me πŸ™‚ so was wondering if you found the language barrier a problem. Thanx Allison
  8. Hi just wanting to hear from anyone who has just done this cruise as we are booked on Q027 in 2020 and was wondering what you would suggest we do and possibly dont do in the ports/excursion and also how was the weather and the seas.Many Thanks Allison
  9. Thanks for your replies Windsurfboy im not a good flier so the least time I have to be up there the better so we will be flying direct to vancouver non stop. Jack E Dawson yes it is a great place to live and we will be on Air NZ got a price fron T/A $1600 thats for NZ to Vancover then Tokyo to NZ at end of cruise. The only thing wrong with NZ is that its so far from anywhere oops except Australia.
  10. Hi Roscoe we were Jaffas for 50 years then decided to move here just in time for earthquakes... still better than Auckland except now we need 2 flights to get to Vancouver!
  11. Just rang Cunard and the answer is No as not enough people live hereπŸ˜‚ seems pretty full to me!
  12. Thank you Lissie we are in CHCH and Jack E Dawson your probably right I will ring them.
  13. HI I just saw a post asking about flights to Canada through Cunard and was wondering if they do them from new Zealand? Arriving Vancouver September 2020.
  14. WOW What an amazing gift. I have nothing particular I needed to know however we are in 4113 QE next year,anything interesting near bye?. I love finding all the little nooks and crannies even if I dont know where they lead. Thanks again. Allison
  15. Thanks Roscoe just thought I would ask.
  16. Great thank you all for the replies will definately be doing this. Cheers
  17. Brilliant! I didnt realise they did other areas of the ship,will definately look into that. Thanx again
  18. Hi Roscoe where can i find a copy of those plans? Thanx
  19. HI last time we were on board QM2 I vaguely remember a behind the scenes tour of the galley ? being available... am I right in thinking this and if so are they available on QE? Thanx Allison
  20. Hi alibabacruisers so glad you enjoyed yourself,I have a few questions if you dont mind? We dont speak Japanese did you find the Language barrier difficult? Our ports of call in Japan are Kushiro,Hakodate and Aomori if you also went to these places is one better than others and what would you recommend doing. No more questions for now but I'm sure I will think of more later. I sure hope they don't change dinner seating times but in the grand scheme of things its too much of a drama. Thanx again.
  21. Thanks for that I will have a quiet word with ours. Allison
  22. PORT ROYAL Can you please explain what PCS/VS is. Thanx
  23. Hi bazzaw we are doing that cruise (Q027) but in reverse next year and we too are a bit daunted by where to stay,what we did was we went to a Travel Expo and spoke to a company that specialise in tours of Japan and asked them about areas/shopping ect they were very helpful even though I told them we had already booked our cruise. We booked cruise direct with Cunard and just used local T/A for flights Got It all sorted.Maybe this might help.Cheers Allison
  24. Hi we would love to hear from anyone who is onboard this voyage as we are doing the reverse one next year. (Q027) Have never been to any of these ports so any tips or thoughts would be greatly received. Cant wait. Many Thanks Allison
  25. Thanks for your reply Elephant1151 thats a shame it was a nice place to sit ,eat and meet people. We havent been on QE before so will need to hunt out a similar place when we get on board. Allison
