  1. Sunrise over Alaska mountains between Skagway and Hubbard Glacier, taken from QE on 25 May 2019.
  2. QV arriving in Sydney at dawn on 29 February 2016. We were boarding later that day for an 8-night domestic Australia trip, and had treated ourselves to a night at the Hyatt adjacent to the Overseas Passenger Terminal.
  3. Sunrises at sea - my favourite time of day aboard! Here' one from the South Atlantic during QV's South America voyage earlier this year in February.
  4. Ah, thanks for the hint. Genova Italy
  5. Thanks. I forgot my elementary school lesson: "i before e except after c, or when sounded as a as in neighbour or weigh, or Janeiro". 🙂 To add some additional secondary ports for "Mar", there is Copenhagen, Denmark and Fort de France, Martinique. There is also Timaru, New Zealand, a port a few hundred kilometers south of Christchurch, but I don't think any of the Cunard ships have called there.
  6. Oops sorry. Looking again, it was the Vistafjord call that I found. The reference I found mentioned Cunard and I leapt to the wrong conclusion. My bad.
  7. I was holding off on guessing "aria" because I was uncertain about the Pacific island. I remember QM2's March 2012 call there being cancelled due to weather, and I couldn't find any references to other ships. But if QV has been there, then "aria" would be: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Varna Bulgaria Saipan Mariana Islands An honorable mention might go to another Pacific island, Santa Maria in Vanuatu, which could have been both a santa port and an aria port. Unfortunately the place where ships call, Port Vila, is on the island of Efate rather than the n
  8. Cleveland, Ohio Shreveport, Louisiana (just kidding...) Port Everglades, Florida Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain
  9. Congratulations @Host Hattie! I looked at google maps for a long time without seeing a "dine" port. I always thought that port sounded a bit like a 1950s rock and roll band... Bill Haley and the Comets Buddy Holly and the Crickets St Vincent and the Grenadines
  10. Cartagena, Colombia Cartagena, Spain These two ports kicked off a good discussion awhile back about different Cunard ports with the same names. Another candidate for "tag" is Chittagong Bangladesh. I don't think Cunard has been there, and I hope it never does. The port has a large and growing business doing ship breakups.
  11. Ah ha! Thanks for the hint. Athens, Greece
  12. Sunny and 31 (C, not F) today here in summertime Brisbane. We had a video call with some mates out in Perth WA yesterday, and they said it was 43 over there (109F).
  13. I'll have a go today at "hen". I can only think of two confirmed ports of the three that @bluemarble indicates: Gothenburg, Sweden Chennai, India I have several candidates for the third. One is: Ghent, Belgium Ghent is nearby to Bruges, but is more of a river port than a Cunard ocean port. Another "stretch" possibility are the various Italian ports on the Rome side of Italy, like Civitavecchia, Naples, and Livorno. These Med ports are all on the: Tyrrhenian Sea And the last possibility is one that I'm fairly cert
