  1. In 2018 on QE we had number 200 a table for 2, in the Princess Grill. I commented to the waiter about it having rounded corners, and was it was a permanent table for two, the ones with square corners for two can be linked to make larger tables as required. We have always received a table for 2 on Cunard, but they are often in a row of 2 or 3, with a small gap between them so you can converse with your next door table if you so wish.
  2. A lovely leisurely lunch in the Grills Courtyard on a sunny day, bliss.
  3. We were diverted there in 2005, when we were on Arcadia's maiden cruise, we much prefered it to Livorno!
  4. Just read the brochure. Just wondered if anyone has had a liveried flukey carrying their cases for them? We found that they were the photographers trying to con you for a picture!
  5. We have just received a card and a calendar from P&O in the post, we last cruised with them in 2009! We also got a Cunard promo booklet, offering us the same terms for booking a cruise as were available on our cruise last month.
  6. My wife has to take 6 prescribed medicines, we always take an extra weeks supply, just in case. Never had a problem getting a early prescription from our doctor and getting it from the chemist before we go..
  7. Having just got off on Monday, just had a look where she was, it appears she made a short stop in Vigo tonight.
  8. Another batch around an hour ago, the mods appear to have deleted them all. Thanks Mods
  9. We were on this cruise too, although in a Princess P2 suite, and compared to our two previous longer cruises felt there was something missing overall. We had a guarantee cabin, and it was only assigned sometime on the day before, and we were only able to print out the e-tickets and labels the morning we sailed. When we got to our cabin, we had a table assignment in our name, but tour tickets and other paperwork, birthday card and balloon for another couple, I brought this to the attention of the cabin steward and concierge, but still received disembarkation documents in their name, along with ours! Slightly worrying that their computer can get 2 couples in a cabin, we assumed that it was a late cancellation that had not been cleared from the system! A lot of table side cooking and flambes were happening at our end of the Princess Grill, but with a short cruise, I think it is difficult to build a relationship with the staff. On the sea day ( trip to see the Lizard!) we went to the theatre 3 times, sitting on deck 3, 2nd row from the back. The morning was an interesting 'Learning to fly the Spitfire' lecture, afternoon was the film 'Mamma Mia, Here we go again', for both these the sound level was great, but in the evening when Roy Walker did his act, we were unable to hear him, all around us people with commenting about it, and one passenger went to the sound booth to ask if anything could be done, and told it could not, we stayed a little longer, but eventually walked out.
  10. Apologies, I misread the cabin number on my phone! When I could download the e-ticket the morning we sailed, found we had a P2 in the midships block! Must have been a last minute allocation, as we had a birthday card balloon and tour tickets for another passenger in our cabin
  11. We got our cabin assigned sometime after 10am this morning, 24 hours before sailing, a P2 guarantee, what did we get? One of the 2 disabled P2's in the bow of the ship. So be warned, you might draw the short straw! Not be doing that again if we decide to book another Cunard cruise!
  12. A bit of research revealed that a commodore was usually in charge of more than one ship, so probably the senior captain. My great great grandfather was a commodore, sailing between the Baltic and the UK carrying timber, sadly he perished in the Baltic in November 1867. His grandson revived the seafaring tradition of the family, sadly drowning aged 17 in 1889 off Anglesey. We gave up then!
  13. FYI, For anyone visiting Southampton from next Thursday 15th the Christmas Festival (Market!) is on until Christmas. To make it more of a break we decided to have a day in Southampton before our short QV cruise next Friday, so will be able to visit it. Just hoping we will get a cabin allocation soon!
  14. We sail 3 weeks tomorrow, still no cabin, and the ship has full for several weeks!
  15. But nothing prevents you getting a serial door slammer next door!
