  1. On AWE: Lux Lifestyles; Top Travel;Travel in Style; Live Here, Buy This; Private Islands; Dream Cruises
  2. The two words in French that translate into English as ship are both masculine. Le navire and le pacquebot. Therefore the pronoun il.
  3. The verb "manquer" means "to be missing". So, the sentence "vous nous manquez" means "you are missing to us" or as we would say in English ,"we miss you".
  4. By large ships, do you mean the only mega-ships like the RCCL Oasis of the Seas? I was there on Crystal Symphony in November.
  5. You remember correctly. Exquisite traditional French food that's not that easy to find in France anymore, just not the ultra-luxury items in The first class dining room, like Beluga Caviar. Unfortunately, I made the decision to go tourist because first was $500 more. This was 1974 and I was 22 years old. Responsible decision at the time. But I ask myself now, would I miss that $500 in 2020? LOL
  6. The Queens Grill on all the Cunard ships. To turn back time, the Versailles Restaurant (tourist class) on the SS France.
  7. Did the whole 2016 WC on the Serenity in a C3 with no problems whatsoever.
  8. Pre-dinner cocktails in the Cove. Meals in Waterside.
  9. Yes! Buffets as a routine thing have no place on an elegant ship. Maybe a once a week specialty thing.
  10. Way too many ports without multiple successive days at sea.
  11. Thanks. So, if I didn't need to use the internet every day, I'd be better off using the $16 plan on a piecemeal basis? Are there any per minute plans ?
  12. In Carnival's info on internet pricing, under Value WI-FI Plan, two of the entries are: Onboard: $12.00 USD, per day Onboard 24 hour plan: $16.00 USD What are the differences between these two?
  13. Absolutely it is NOT! Cunard has dining categories, not classes. Where you dine is based on your cabin. The entire ship otherwise is open to all passengers. As time goes on, more and more people who post on these boards have never traveled on ships with classes, nor do they know what the experience is. I traveled on the Italian Line and French Line in the 70s and Cunard in the 80s when the QE2 was still a two-class ship. For example, on the Italian line there were three classes. This meant that there were three of everything, e.g. three dining rooms, three swimming pools, three lounges, three children's playrooms, separate seating in the theatre, etc. There were signs at the entrance to these areas saying "First (or Cabin) Class Passengers Only". All far removed from Cunard nowadays.
