  1. Just logged in to my voyage planner for a new booking and was surprised to find Cunard U.K. customers now have drink package options! When did that happen? Too late for us now as we no longer drink enough alcohol to make it worthwhile! LOL! We shall just get a wine package onboard as usual and pay for the odd stiffener at the end.
  2. We flew back from Budapest on the 14th July at the end of our Uniworld Passau to Budapest cruise. The river levels were great and the weather was perfect for us. Temps remain in the low 20s and there was some cloud cover. The previous week they’d really suffered in the heat.
  3. We’re moored at Durnstein now. Set sail for Vienna at 22:30. Water levels ideal at the mo. Asked Captain Martin what’s his best guess for next week’s levels. He laughed! Next week is next week on the Danube! Lol! So notamermaid’s explanation explains why!
  4. Lmao! Thanks for the kind wishes! I’m sure I’ll have a great time! I’ll let you know. We’ve sailed the Rhine and Rhône with Riviera and the Dutch waterways with Emerald. This will be our first trip with Uniworld. Friends have recommended them so we’ll give them a whirl!
  5. Many thanks for all the updates notamermaid! We are supposed to be sailing from Passau to Budapest on Sunday. No idea that I should be worried about damaged lock gates! I thought the water level might be a problem or one of us falling ill or injuring ourselves leading to having to cancel our trip. Just shows there’s no point worrying at all! What will be will be. Oh well fingers crossed! Lol!
  6. Thanks Arsesta! Packing mozzie spray as I type! We’re boarding the SS Maria Theresa on the 7th and cruising to Budapest. Hopefully said lock won’t interfere with our trip too much. Must be magnetic! Which ship did the damage this time?
  7. Ahhh Captain Inger! Faroe Islander I think. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  8. I had a birthday in the Britannia restaurant on the QM2 about 5 or 6 years ago and was given a cake then as well, but not as big as this one!! Lol. Sent from my iPad using Forums

  10. Yep! Still Captain Hashmi. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  11. Ok. At the risk of being contentious...... just back from a week aboard the QE in a Q6 cabin. We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed being pampered. The food was on the whole very good but we’ve travelled Britannia cabin before and dare I say it found the fare very similar! Yes in the Grills you may be able to choose what you have on which night or ask for a particular favourite in advance but as we were onboard for only a week that didn’t really worry us. However, we did use the option of having lunch off the menu in our cabin occasionally when we just couldn’t be bothered to trek up to the restaurant. Lovely time though! Lol!

  12. Just back from a “bounce around the bay” as Captain Hashmi called it. Queens Grill stern cabin. 60th birthday 2nd night. Brilliant! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  13. I lived for 10 years in the Middle East. Not so sniffy about choices. Hate saccharine but now Type 1 so no choice. Before diabetes any tonic that didn’t have blessed sweetener. Now it hardly matters. Need a hefty whack of gin, ice if gin and mixer not chilled, lemon or lime, zest if possible! Go Grills - take your own choice of mixer! That’s what we just did. Fabulous!

  14. Wish I had a “like” button on this app! Rotfl! Love it! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  15. Same thing happened to us a few years ago. Having dinner when my better half nite that we’d turned back to NY. Captain Wells came on to say we had a very poorly pax who needed hospitalisation. Back under the bridge we went, coastguard came out from NJ in a boat and picked up the poor fellow! Back under the bridge we went! I still think about him now and hope it turned out ok for him.
