  1. Our local Railway company Northern Railways, had a special promotion selling tickets for £1. I managed to get one so went to Liverpool today. Bad timing as QE is there tomorrow. The weather was fine and warm so I had a good time and it was nice to be on a train again. Although I didn't see QE, I did get see Fred Olson's new ship Borealis which used to be Rotterdam.
  2. Thanks for the reports @LadyL1 I am looking forward to my turn in 2 weeks time.
  3. Congratulations on your booking. I hope you enjoy your non-Cunard cruise. I can understand the urge to be on a ship any ship 🙂
  4. A bit of excitement here, I have been allocated a cabin number for my trip in 21 days on QE. I am on deck 1. Very handy for everywhere (apart from the Commodore Club), but hopefully not too much noise from deck 2.
  5. Have a great time. I am looking forward to your next update.
  6. So sorry to hear that more cruises have been cancelled.
  7. I am working on Monday but only not long off my next holiday so I will manage. Been a lovely day here today, quite warm and very sunny.
  8. The Captain's cabin in on the Starboard side behind the bridge. Thanks for the updates on your voyage. I am on a voyage to the sun on 24th September so it will be interesting to see where we end up.
  9. Thanks for the clarification.
  10. Just to give you a bit more detail of the process. After check in you will have to go through a security check. Your bag and coat or jacket, need to go through the x-ray machine and you have to pass through one of those metal detector arches. You may also need to take your shoes off so I always make sure I have my deck shoes on, or once that I can get on and off easily.
  11. That lunch looks amazing HH. Lovely photos as well.
  12. Thanks for the information. I was planning to get a FCD in September.
  13. I received my results by text message in July. I am guessing it's the same for Cunard.
  14. I hope you all have a great time.
  15. It took about half an hour for me to get my results in July.
  16. As has been said the Mayflower test centre is for CPS users. When you get to the front of the queue you show proof of vaccination, the move to check in and give and booking reference. You are then given a wrist band with a bar code. You then drive forward and do the test. After doing the test you drive to the terminal to board the ship. Otherwise, the tests are done in the luggage hall at the terminal. I am not sure how this works, but I saw the test booths when I was collecting my bags after getting of Britannia in July.
  17. Yes I think we may have met many moons ago. If you see me onboard say hello.
  18. It's a beautiful day for setting sail on a beautiful ship.
  19. I am not sure about sailing on Friday 13th. From my experience on P&O there were plenty of activities but you had to stay with your group. It did not seem to spoil the enjoyment too much. I am looking forward to 24th September when it's my turn.
  20. Thanks @LadyL1 I am also looking forward to 7 nights on QE in September. It would need to be something very special to get me back on P&O.
  21. My report is here https://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=681745 To sum it up, I enjoyed it and would go again, but I prefer Cunard.
  22. I have just come back from a P&O cruise and I can't wait to get back on Cunard. That is just my opinion.
  23. I had a great but I am glad the ship was only about half full. I have submitted my report I am just waiting for it to show.
  24. Once I had got used to the mv voyage, or my holiday app I quite liked it. Especially the onboard account access. Apart from that most of it will be unnecessary when things are more like normal.
  25. We used the My Holiday app, which Cunard now have. This allowed us to book meals, shows, and join a queue for meals. Once we got used to it, we got to like it. It also has a function to allow us to check on board spending. The storm hit us at about 5.30am according to the Captain the forecast was for 45 mph winds, but they hit 70mph. It was quite bumpy and I loved it. I will do a full report and add a link. Although I enjoyed it, I have not been converted from Cunard to P&O.
