  1. I am also not seeing the times. If you are looking for times for that voyage, I captured them previously.

  2. It is possible that ships would go from Southampton to New York via Bermuda. Queen Elizabeth 2018 (actually stopped at Ponta Delgada due to rough weather, skipped Bermuda, then added Bermuda on the Eastbound crossing at the end of WC) Q802 Westbound Transatlantic Crossing Sun 7 Jan Southampton, United Kingdom Mon 8 Jan At Sea Tue 9 Jan At Sea Wed 10 Jan At Sea Thu 11 Jan At Sea Fri 12 Jan At Sea Sat 13 Jan At Sea Sun 14 Jan Hamilton, Bermuda Mon 15 Jan At Sea Tue 16 Jan New York Wed 17 Jan New York
  3. Poorly written article. Implies that the shore to ship connection has been in place for a decade. It was put in place after September 2016 (possibly November). “That’s the way it should have been for the last decade since they built this thing.” “This thing” is the $21 million plug-in station that Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg... I believe at the beginning, the QM2 may not have connected every time it docked, but now regularly does. Keep in mind that just after it docks, there is some time (I believe it is 30 minutes) before the connection is established, and the engines are shut down. And again before leaving the engines are started and warmed up (again about 30 minutes) before switching to internal power, and disconnecting. If the activist was observing during those times, he may be mistaken. The article does not specifically lay the blame on QM2. It has gone through the expense of adding the capability and has been using it.
  4. Seeing that too, on the regular website. Must be a medical evacuation. Someone on board will probably confirm. This early in the crossing, it should be easy to make up for lost time, and arrive on schedule.
  5. The past track shown on Marine Traffic shows a turn towads the north that looks consistent with your 290° course estimate. BTW, I'm sure you must have noticed. Before this year, position was not updated a day or two after leaving England, and resumed a day or two before reaching New York, or the reverse. (Unless you maybe paid for premium service that included satellite data, instead of just VHF data) Starting this year, AIS, now has a kind of mesh network, where even if a ship is out of range of a shore VHF receiver, a ship within VHF range of can receive, and retransmit the packet, until it reaches a shore VHF receiver. I believe that during this process is when the course and speed are reduced by one tenth. Position seems to be correct though. You can now view the position, although the speed and course may be off by a factor of 10, all the way across. [Tech nerd info follows] Within the packet, speed is stored as whole number integer, tenths of a knot e.g 123 means 12.3 knots Course and heading are stored as a whole number integer, tenths of a degree 0 to 3599 for 0 to 359.9 degrees. I feel the store and forward logic is retransmitting knots and degrees, instead of tenths of knots and tenths of degrees, and so the apparent divide by 10. [Resume normal] Still I am happy seeing position data, even when out of VHF range.
  6. Hattie, Enjoy your voyage. My wife and I were just on the Queen Elizabeth (our first cruise), Q921B Jul 24, 2019 New York, NY, USA Arrives 06:30 AM Departs 05:00 PM Jul 26, 2019 Halifax, NS, Canada Arrives 08:00 AM Departs 06:00 PM Jul 28, 2019 St John's, NL, Canada Arrives 09:00 AM Departs 05:00 PM Aug 1, 2019 Isafjordur, Iceland Arrives 08:00 AM Departs 06:00 PM Aug 2, 2019 Reykjavik, Iceland Arrives 09:00 AM Departs 05:00 PM Aug 5, 2019 Glasgow (tours from Greenock), Scotland, Arrives 08:00 AM Departs 05:00 PM Aug 6, 2019 Dublin, Ireland Arrives 07:00 AM Departs 06:00 PM Aug 8, 2019 Southampton, England, UK Arrives 06:00 AM We enjoyed it very much. I am interested in your experiences in Isafjordur, Reykjavik, Glasgow and Dublin. These were stops on our trip as well, and we had a great time exploring on our own. Photos from Isafjordur Thanks Vince
  7. Do not appear to be updated very frequently. Maybe also delayed quite a bit. Test QM2 https://www.cunard.com/assets/cunard/ships/qm2.jpg Test QEL https://www.cunard.com/assets/cunard/ships/qel.jpg Test QV1 https://www.cunard.com/assets/cunard/ships/qv1.jpg

  9. Does anyone know if there is something unusual with the QM2? During this first westbound crossing of the season, I noticed the course on at least two occasions has turned to the northeast towards Ireland. My first thought was that there was possibly a medical evacuation. Then it happened again. I then noticed the speed has been alternating between about 20kn and almost stopped. Could the QM2 be conducting a search?
  10. I seem to be missing the last line in 20190202_QEL.txt May 18, 2021 TOKYO Arrives ?
  11. Results from screen scraping All whole numbered voyages that started after Feb 2, 2019 QM2 through Apr 26, 2021 QEL through May 15, 2021 QV1 through May 1, 2021 20190202_QM2.txt 20190202_QEL.txt 20190202_QV1.txt
  12. John, The voyages are available on the Cunard site. I captured them on Feb 2. I didn't want to search and drill down for each voyage. I started entering the URL directly. For example for M106, I entered https://www.cunard.com/en-us/find-a-cruise/M106/M106 One after the next, whole numbered voyages Then screen scraped the results. Q023 -Q027 are Q023N-Q027N Is there a way to attach text files?
