    QM2 Fitness Center question

    Out of respect for fellow users of the Fitness Centre, correct attire should be worn, You would not be allowed to use your own gym in street shoes, so why do you think the fitness centre on the ship should be any different. General: Please note that proper gym attire should be worn to utilise the gym. You may find the following questions useful: Can I jog or run on board? How many times around the Promenade, What activities are available on board? and Are there swimming pools on board and what are the opening times?

    Size of luggage tags

    Mark You need The Larger tag holder to properly show details for a Cunard Voyage as per my pic if you print luggage labels yourself. If you narrow them down then some of the details are hidden However if you get sent the tags by Cunard in the back of Travel Documentation of your voyage then they are different and will fit the narrower type of plastic holder The narrower plastic tags holders are for Royal Caribbean and Celebrity whilst the larger ones for Princess, Carnival, Holland America, NCL, Costa Cunard, P&O and MSC but will also work for Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise Critic advertise their type here, but obviously other sites sell them \https://www.cruisecritic.co.uk/store/product.cfm?ID=46

    Size of luggage tags

    I don't think Cunard will fit. They are 95mm x 75mm when folded, which includes displayingYour name and phone number on one side and weight limit and no prohibitive items on the other side. Together with Voyage number and Stateroom etc

    Sail away from NY

    Yea with apologies I meant Red Hook to Wall Street (Pier11), You can not miss it being right next to the ship, with all the signage.

    Sail away from NY

    About 20/25mins from Brooklyn (Pier6) to Wall Street (Pier 11) https://www.ferry.nyc/routes-and-schedules/route/south-brooklyn/

    Sail away from NY

    You could always use the NYC Ferry service, very easy from right next door to were QM2 docks at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal $2.75 each way. South Brooklyn Route to Pier 11 (Wall Street) https://www.ferry.nyc/routes-and-schedules/

    Travelling on the Queen Mary with pet in kennel

    Yea I think you could be correct.

    Travelling on the Queen Mary with pet in kennel

    See Junker is Threatening the UK with a 4 day Quarantine period for UK to Europe for pets . Re Brexit. So if QM2 is continuing to France or Hamburg after its Southampton stop, it may seriously be worth considering. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6228497/British-planes-wont-able-land-EU-Brexit-goes-wrong-pets-face-four-day-quarantines.html

    class difference?

    The faux leather wallets are actually quite useful, as it prevents your cruise card from wiping its self if it gets near your phone/ipad,

    class difference?

    Agree with what you say Bigmac, but do not forget that you can tell from the cruise card if you have sailed with Cunard before and also the little discreet diamond on the Card that shows if you are travelling in the Grills.
