Cool Cruiser (2/15)

  1. Why are all the guys laying up tables ie the glasses , wearing white hard hats? Are there low flying angels?
  2. Don’t tell anyone,cos I snore !😉
  3. Hi Maggielou 362 I could not agree with you more! My voyage heaven is being on board QM2; lounger nicely positioned out of the way of walkers on deck7; sun hat and a good book.The sound of the waves, and MOH doing his circumnavigation of the deck, with only an occasional “are you ok” Cannot wait 😀
  4. Having read of the books brought from home on our last QM2 voyage I borrowed a good read from the library, but unfortunately did not finish it.A good reason to book another voyage ! Hoping it’s still in stock, as it was “a who done it”.
  5. We flew into JFK for the Christmas Celebration Voyage, and were picked up by Carmel Limos as recommended by CC.Very comfortable drive to our hotel in Brooklyn , which was the Down town Hampton Hilton, recommended because it was only a short taxi ride to the ship.Could not fault the hotel, and there seems to be a lot of routes into Manhattan.We went for a walk before we left for the ship, much to the amusement of a NYPD traffic ‘cop’ who insisted on holding up all the traffic so we could cross , and then did the same on our way back.All felt very safe.
  6. There’s no problem.Choose what you prefer and enjoy.I always think I will try a different wine every night but usually keep to two favourites.Not usually a lot left but yes they will recover any undrunk wine.
  7. We spent an overnight stay at the Downtown Hampton Hilton before we left from the cruise terminal.Very good hotel for just a few hours, comfortable ,good breakfast, fabulous staff and not far to terminal with a phone call from the hotel for a car.And our Hilton Honors points.
  8. Definitely go for the wine! We did!
  9. Yes and returning back into New York.Watching everything coming into view was amazing at 4.30 in the morning. I set the alarm but my husband slept on!,
  10. Our voyages in those two cabins,11105,11107 was to the Carribean, and it did keep the sun off the balcony.I think my feet were the only part of me that caught the sun when I was sitting there.I don’t think we spent very much time on the balcony.far too much to do. Our holiday started in New York, and it was wonderful to arrive in the cabin, go out onto the balcony, and whow! the view ,looking up towards Manhattan,the Brooklyn Bridge, and in the other direction to the Statue of Liberty.Both times the sun shone and the sky was blue. I was even up to see us go under the Verrazano Bridge and see the Statue all it up.Wonderful.x ,
  11. I posted yesterday that we have previously sailed in 11105 and 11107.Great except for the overhang from deck 12.This is the walkway that goes part away along the length of the ship.I am presuming it is on the port side as well.We have booked to visit Norway in 2025 but have moved our cabin further down to 11069 so not to have the overhang.
  12. Sorry that should have been 10005, my apologies.
  13. My sincere apologies MOH has corrected me this morning.We were in 11105 and 11107 as described.Our friends were in Princess grill on deck 10 ,11005 and their view was wonderful.Once again my apologies.
  14. We have been in both 11005 and 11007.They are situated between two sets of lifts and stairs, but not too far to walk.The balcony is great, but there is what is called an “overhang “.It doesn’t stop your view , but it does interfere with photos.It is the walkway from the above deck.We never heard any noise ever!,Another thing is it does stop the sun, but as we spend plenty of time elsewhere on the ship it wasn’t a problem. Still lovely to sit early morning before breakfast and in the evening for sunset.We must have been happy to book similar again. Not sure how far the overhang goes, but I’m sure someone else does..
