I am self-employed, and need to be able to check my email to make sure my clients feel that I haven't abandoned them if they have questions. Thirty minutes in the morning and again in the afternoon...

We've done a few summer crossings and always see children on board. They look great all dressed-up for dinner.
I admit that I get a little sad seeing them in that mother changed our reservations on...

Thank you for posting. Even though we've done four crossings I like reading the Newbie posts. You always learn something. Our first crossing was a "once-in-a-lifetime" trip. Quickly followed by 3...

Dancing & formal wear: Two topics that bring out the elitist charges.
We sail on Cunard because of the Queens Room and the Formal Nights. I think of Fred & Ginger, old black & white movies, 1930s...

You're right. Many dancers don't drink while dancing. Most land-based cocktail lounges and restaurants don't have small wooden dance floors. A dance floor takes up space that could go to tables. ...

I've been on four crossings, and on each one the cruise directors mentioned ballroom etiquette every night. They talked about line-of-dance, travelling couples dance on the outside and slow moving...

I think it's the best. If one thinks that dancing is romantic, the QM is for you. You just has to accept the idea that many other people think dancing on the ship is good idea and the two big dance...

The Chart Room used to have a small, wooden dance floor before they did the refit. We've danced in the Winter Garden when there is music and also on the wooden floor at the back of the planetarium. ...

We saw the exhibit a few months ago in Boston. Well worth it.

Sometimes I'll be travelling and will be at a black tie event one night, and a less formal dinner either the night before or after. If I'm trying to save room in the suitcase I will wear my tux with...

We're into the craft cocktail culture. We usually spend a few days in London before taking the QM2 home to the states. London is a great place for cocktails. The American Bar & Beaufort Bar at the...

While you can visit and stay of the Queen Mary anytime, the annual Art Deco Festival is a great time to go and see the ship. Held in August, the Fri-Sun event includes dances, cocktail parties, a...

It is nice and quiet. Of course it depends on time of day, but I have always enjoyed the pool & saunas.
I would also shower & shave in the spa so my wife could have the stateroom bathroom all to...

All we are saying is give peas a chance.
Stop the violins, Visualize whirled peas!

The Boston fireworks are set to music. You can stream the audio. It switches between WCRB & WGBH. Just Google Boston fireworks live stream to get the right link. (The QM2 wifi may be too slow, but...

At lunch one day we asked a British couple if they thought Charles should become King or whether it should pass through to Prince William. He said Charles and she said William. And then they looked...

We've done 4 T/A crossings. Twice at tables for 6 and twice at tables for 8. We still keep in touch with some of our tablemates. Only once did we consider changing (we didn't) was at a table for 8...

After the 4th cocktail we all "think" we can dance. It's not the same. That only works if everyone else is on cocktail # 4 or more. :D

Let's go dancing! Cunard has provided a fabulous room, dance hosts, an orchestra that can play danceable songs and guests dressed to the nines and stepping out for a wonderful time. And if you plan...

We've done 4 crossing and the Grill question comes up each time we book. It's not a cost issue as we book on points (I get to charge $1 mill annually on my AMEX card for work related items.) We...

I used my Verizon phone last year on a TA crossing. It was $3.95/min. It worked great. There is a slight delay. You have to get used to waiting a bit or you'll both start talking over each other. ...

I am self-employed. I need to spend about 30 minutes in the AM and again in the PM checking my emails. It is unlikely that my clients have a "real" emergency that requires my immediate attention. ...

It goes to the Kennedy Museum and the Adam's residence.
In my opinion, the Kennedy Museum is worth the trip. The Adam's Museum is good if you're already an Adam's fan. Otherwise it's not that...

We do vintage look. Not actual vintage clothing, but new stuff that looks vintage. They hold up better, fit better and if you damage them you don't feel as bad. My wife always dresses 30's style...

One evening at a local swing (Lindy-hop) dance I noticed that every now and then I would be off with my partner. And I noticed that other dancers seemed to be less in-sync with their partners as...
