  1. I got off QE on Tuesday, not Christmas trimmings yet, but they did have Christmas things in the shop and on display in the windows and cabinets.
  2. As the new ship looks like it is more of a cruise ship than a liner, maybe Cunard will go for something line Halifax so as not to devalue the Queen names. Maybe that is wishful thinking on my part. We have had cruise ships in the past, Cunard Countess, Cunard Princess, Cunard Crown, Royal Viking Sun, and others.
  3. I got off QE on Tuesday, and can honestly say the food and service were wonderful.
  4. We left the ship about 1pm on Sunday and our bus dropped us very close to where we should have docked. Took us about almost an hour so we did not even get off the ship on Monday.
  5. I will be on QE on Friday, only for 4 nights, but I will be in the Commodore Club every night (not all night). I love the Commodore Club on QM2, but QE has a couple of advantages. You don't have to worry about banging your head on the slopped walls and for me the best bit, they don't need to close the curtains at night so you can see out.
  6. Commodore Club is my favourite bar, but al the Chart Room before dinner. Carinthia lounge is well worth a visit in the evening. Check the daily programme for what is on.
  7. The UK website stopped showing actual times some years ago. Makes it tricky to pre book trips if you don't really know what time you need to be back at the ship.
  8. Thanks for the Info. We are there on Sunday and Monday.
  9. I wonder if it should be 16.30 (24hr clock) which would be 4.30pm. We will have to watch and see what time she leaves.
  10. They are the Cunarder mattress made by Sealy. I agree they are very comfortable.
  11. If all else fails, you could sit and watch the waves or look for wildlife if there are no waves. It works for me.
  12. On the same basic subject, is there anything to do in Ijmuiden?
  13. Both ships are nice in their own way. QM2 is a true ocean liner so I would recommend trying her first.
  14. Cunard offer a coach service, as does National Express which might be cheaper than Cunard but will not take you to the ship. There are direct trains from London to Southampton so plenty of options.
  15. My AIS seems to have QM2 pointing North but traveling West. I doubt she is going sideways though.
