  1. Hi everyone, Thanks so much for all your good wishes. I'm pleased to say today is the first day I have truly felt I'm on the mend. I am still coughing and pretty breathless but have been able to walk round much more without gasping for breath. I think it will be a while before I am at full strength again, which is frustrating. However, I'm definately on the way, and that has to be good. Unfortunately, yesterday one of my cats suffered a blocked bladder, and is in at the vets for sorting out. What a family! We don't do things by half! Hoping to be bringing him home later this evening. Hope all is good with you all. Stay safe!
  2. Well, things didn't go quite to plan for us. We had to return home from Southampton on the Friday as I tested positive for covid. Turns out I have had/got severe covid and I ended up in hospital for most of yesterday. Thankfully, I am home now with a raft of drugs and orders to monitor my sats carefully. Thank heavens I had had the vaccine! I also have a chest infection, which would not have been helping. It all got a bit frightening yesterday, but I feel a lot better already today. If anyone out there has not had the vaccine yet. Please, please get it now. It could save your life.
  3. We went to see QM2 in grey, drizzly Southampton this morning. She was looking good in her new paintwork, but the weather was terrible! We are down to use our many times cancelled pre cruise hotel bookings. Have joined two together. We should see QE in tomorrow as well. Enjoy the end of your cruise, Lanky Lad.
  4. Glad to see lots of people enjoying the coast in different parts of the UK. We were also by the sea today, in the east, Sheringham in North Norfolk. We had a swim and a paddle. The sea was so calm and wasn't very cold at all. Probably the last chance we will get to go in the sea this year. And we really enjoyed it.
  5. As i am reading it, if it was paid for with an FCC from a cancelled cruise, you don't get the 125%, as you have already had it once with the previous cancellation. We are in the same position. Will still roll it over, but slightly annoyed we don't get the 125% for this cancelled cruise, although I can understand why.
  6. Looks like it. That part wasn't mentioned in the email they sent us. I only found out about the TA on cruise critic. Oh well, we still have a cruise booked for next Sept. I really hope that one will go! You are making me feel old. Our oldest great niece is 21 😳, the youngest is 2. My husband is the youngest in a family of 5.
  7. Just had an email to say our Dec 10th cruise to Netherlands and Belgium on QM2 is cancelled. Apparently because they want to stay nearer home for the first cruises back! Not sure where they will find that is nearer!! We were expecting it, as the QM2 cruises had disappeared from the Cunard site, but I'm still heartbroken 😢
  8. Huge congratulations Host Hattie, on the birth of your great nephew.
  9. We have been overnight in Amsterdam 4 times. The view is basically a load of office blocks. You can't see the city from the ship. I think we have moored both ways around, but I really wouldn't worry, you can't see anything of interest. You can see the other side of the river but there is only normal houses there.
  10. I just looked up my vaccine record on the NHS app and it only gives my first name and my surname. Yet elsewhere on the app my full name, with middle name appears. So they have my name recorded correctly but it doesn't appear in that form on the covid pass bit.
  11. We started with QV and QE, just like you, Csardas. We have only been on QM2 once. Our second QM2 cruise has been cancelled twice and is now looking a tiny bit more hopeful for this December. My favourite ship is still QV. I get the hug and feeling of being home when I board her. However, QM2 is a beautiful ship, and we loved being on her. I agree with all the points Carlmm made. The layout is complicated compared with QV and QE. We didn't get on with the layout of the buffet at all. But, we still loved the ship and can't wait to be back on board. QV might have my heart, but QM2 is a lovely ship and I think you would have a wonderful time on board her. I would leap at the chance to be aboard a beautiful Cunard ship taking, what sounds like, a fabulous cruise. Go for it, I'm sure you will have a great time!
  12. Really interesting to hear how it all works. I'm looking forwards to reading your full report. Sounds like you had a good time.
  13. Have a wonderful cruise and holiday, Lanky Lad.
  14. Hi Dancingkatz, we are also ballroom dancers, though not very good. We came late to dancing, having sat and watched in the Queens Room during our first cruises, before starting lessons at home. It was the main thing that put us off booking one of the UK seacation cruises. We were worried there would not be any dancing allowed. We are keeping everything crossed that the ballroom dancing will be as it was before the pandemic. And that we will be able to take to the floor again sometime, hopefully not too far in the future.
