  1. Thank you Steve for bringing back memories of that very same crossing. I was lucky to have been on board for the Southampton - NY part. Indeed, the weather also became quite unstable as the ship sailed from Southampton and it was certainly a little rough day 1 through 3. I had never been sea sick before. Even when whale watching in the North Pacific or embarking on a rough North Sea crossing to Europe, I had never felt even a little bit queasy. It was amazing to get through it and the Dramamine finally did the trick for me on day 2. However, it goes without saying, I also got to thoroughly enj
  2. We have been busy planting vegetables and going back to old recipes and baking from home. It has been a time to reflect, although 2 months ago it seemed like May was so far away. There have been many inspiring stories throughout the past few months such as Capt Tom Moore and this hero below 96-year-old WWII veteran is running coast-to-coast again. This time to raise money to sail a restored ship
  3. As a solo cruiser I found that I had to be bold and enter the Queens Room with a purpose as if I was looking for a friend who had saved a seat for me. The trick is to look around and make eye contact with somebody who looks like they would welcome you at their table for two. A fair amount of solo teatime travelers will welcome a stranger for good conversation and a nice cup of tea and those warm lovely scones. You are also helping the waiters and Maitre D as they are always looking to hurry on single teatime patrons because of table space and the queue.
  4. The buffet will possibly have to change temporarily or even permanently. The food court idea could be workable. Based on the latest news out of Australia and especially New Zealand, that may well be the location from where cruising could tentatively commence later in the year.
  5. My favorite ship too. Cunard sent out a text to a link regarding the secret recipe of the scones and how to make them should you wish to make your own. Cant be the same though.
  6. What ideas do you think Cunard (Carnival) are discussing/entertaining regarding having the Queens all cruising again soon? What do you imagine when you think of steps we need to take to get back cruising in some fashion similar to what we are used to? Bear in mind that we should assume the virus will eventually get less severe as more people around the world acquire some sort of immunity or, at the very least, the severity of an infection will in time be no worse than a current flu. Unfortunately, that may be more than one year. First thing that may have t
