  1. Couldn’t sleep last night with the thought that QM2 being made to look like a cruise ship.She is an iconic ocean liner, and the only one for a memorable voyage( in my opion) Feel better reading Germancruiser’s post this morning.
  2. Chengkp75 Thankyou so much for your very informative reply.By looking at your “badge” we certainly got the right person to reply.
  3. We are really interested in what goes on for our beautiful ship’s long awaited refit Do all the crew disembark and rejoin later? Does the captain stay with the ship whilst she’s in Rotherham? Are all the stores taken off? Why is she going to Rotterdam and not where she was built? Over to you ,Cunarders.
  4. I’m including several outfits which I will keep for the end of the voyage.Of a more loose fitting to compensate for the “sea air shrink “ Catch my drift,!
  5. 67 days to go, and I am already twirling around in my long dresses trying to choose what I need to pack.Trying on different shoes, handbags and jewellery.This is what I love about Cunard.You can just be as you want to be.
  6. We have been checking those dates as well.Seems strange that the Gala night is not on New Years Eve ? That will be the evening that most people will want to “push the boat out “ and get ready to party.New Years day will be a time to relax after getting to bed in the early hours. Counting the days!
  7. Thank you! Things are just getting better. Will certainly keep in touch a bit nearer the time
  8. Thankyou! Thankyou! 🇺🇸Feel so much happier this morning. Only reason we fly is because MOH refuses to cross the Atlantic in December. Working on it!
  9. Thankyou so much.Hopefully the weather will be good enough for us to do something😀
  10. Thankyou so much.You always have the answers! I am going to ask on board if there is anyway we can see New York before we leave.I do remember someone writing that there is a tour pre flight.
  11. When I go into my Cunard and most popular shore excursions and select New York Highlights ,put the date in and our names appear.It’s just a case of ticking the boxes and paying. Sometime ago I did ask on the forum if there was such an excursion , I am sure the answer was yes.
  12. Another question for another answer? We want to book the New York excursion on January 3rd when our cruise finishes and before we fly back to the UK.It commences at 8.30 and is for four hours. I cannot find out if our luggage stays on the coach whilst we are on the tour.? Do we go back to the cruise terminal to get on another coach to go to the airport? If we do not take our luggage where is it stored.? That’s a worry as new passengers will be queuing to get on board. I have asked Cunard but up to now no one can find the answer. I am sure that someone will come up with the answer, you always do !
  13. Thank you all so much.I knew someone would have it to hand.Will make a note of it for next time.😀
  14. Hi everyone Can anyone help with the address? I am filling in the information again for our visa’s .Cannot recall what I put from two years ago.I know someone will have the answer . Thankyou
  15. Was worried watching the weather, but relieved that you are safely on board.Bon Voyage!,
  16. Looking forward to sharing your wonderful to be voyage
  17. Thankyou so much for your responses. We are hoping so much that we will be able to enjoy our voyage without worrying about getting ill.We still of memories of the phone ringing in our cabin and the doctor telling us we couldn’t fly home and would sail back to Southampton.I was quite poorly but we were so well looked after.And the food (when we were better) was fabulous. Glad no checks to get us on board and to Spirit rev lets hope we can all party. ps .Have enjoyed all day the responses of QM2 Mixed Reviews!,,,
  18. This was one of the many questions I was preparing to ask so pleased that a few people are still concerned.Having been isolated during the 2021 Caribbean cruise we are trying to prepare for as much as possible. Does anyone know if not having covid proof will be applicable from Brooklyn as we board for our Christmas/New Year 2023 cruise? Also are any of the islands asking for proof? Of course we will be taking our own test kits , but do you just inform the medical centre if you test positive? We are both getting our latest covid/flu vaccines next week.I know all this sounds a bit “over the top” but we are hoping to have a fabulous time. Our best wishes hope to meet some of you on board,we will be the ones with balaclava’s and rubber gloves!,,
  19. QM2 has just sailed past our house looking very regal and beautifully lit up.Only doing 10 knots .So looking forward to being on her at Christmas. ps.Couldn’t see any blue jeans !,
  20. Thankyou all so much for your reply’s.Still a bit muddled! Will wait until I can contact Cunard.
  21. Have just had a call from our American friends that the departure from New York is now the 21st December not the 22nd.News to us ?…
  22. Is anyone “bright eyed and bushy tailed” to see Cruise mapper this morning for Queen Victoria? ETA arrival in Cherbourg April 29,17.31.It must have been a time lapse from Bilbao. Hi to all the enthusiasts
  23. Thankyou so much for your kind comments.I think we have resolved ourselves to waiting…patiently.I have a lovely husband who always books a flight and then goes straight to book our seats. .We nearly always fly BA as we find the food better, and as you say the planes are so much more comfortable .We can select our seats I think 7 days before we fly, and can use our Avios points. Its just we cannot do it NOW ps.I cannot tell you how much we are looking forward to the cruise and getting further than Barbados
