I had always understood that it is priced according to the number of formal nights in your itinerary.

I think you'll find that it's less expensive to buy something that he knows fits and perhaps...

True, but note that the port corridor on 8 ends at a short stairway without a wheelchair ramp. There is a ramp at the forward end of the starboard corridor.

I had thought the wider passageway on 7...

The issue with the A lifts is that they're fairly remote from the Grand Lobby. On 2 and 3 you have the half decks around the Royal Court Theatre to contend with plus the diagonal passageway forward...

In my state the pharmacy must use a generic if available unless the doctor indicates in the prescription that substitution isn't permitted.

I think it can be mentioned as it's not a travel agency.

I use Cruise Compete. You identify the ship and sailing date and several agencies respond with quotes. Some may have a lower price (if the...

It's just that the listed price for a P2 is the same as an A1.

Cunard would like you to believe that this is because they lowered the P2 price to that of an A1.

It will depend on the line. We've don a TA on Cunard and absolutely loved it - thinking about another in 2019. But our experience with other ships on sea days suggests that other lines may not be as...

We've cruised on Cunard at least once a year since 2010. We've never received any sort of upgrade. Even the one time we booked a balcony guarantee we were assigned within the guaranteed category.

Also note that New York's Dial7 car service has an app with features similar to Uber - when you request a car, the status and location of your assigned car is shown on a map, pricing is shown...

That can be one of the factors that make your smart device appear to have an extremely poor data connection, especially when connecting to the ship's WiFi. Every app that is accustomed to a regular...

Disclaimer: I've never incurred a one-minute charge due to being called while still registered to the ship's network. I have received a few 20 cent charges due to being overseas and not answering a...

We've sent and received short texts on QM2 (Happy New Year, things like that) with good results as one would expect. 50 cents to send, free to receive sounds about right. I have a lot of services...

Since you're obviously expected to be taking your meals in the Grills restaurant, the maitre d' will have to accommodate a request to be seated in Britannia, whether for one meal or the entire...

I think there's confusion between clearing for disembarkaytion and clearing for subsequent embarkation. It's probably less of an issue for closed-loop cruises, but embarkation on QM2 in Brooklyn is...

GE is available in Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades), but there's a free Mobile Passport app available that gives you access to the GE queues there.

The problem is that cruising home from Hamburg probably means an overnight flight to Europe from the US (I'm not a fan of the concept of a b2b transatlantic crossing; I'd rather spend some time once...

When insurance hassles me I investigate what the cash price is.

Because vacation is over, the ship is done with me - nothing is open and they just want to reset everything for the next group, and usually I have a four hour drive ahead of me and id just as soon...

I'm accustomed to sailaways around 5:00 PM and arrival around 6 or 7 AM. It sounds like Hamburg isn't like this. The itineraries on Cunard aren't a lot of help. Does QM2 arrive and depart at "off"...

I generally tip $2 but if the person delivering normally works in the MDR or cafeteria they're very much part of the gratuities pool.
The daily gratuities are allocated to a number of people in...

My perception of the problem with the curtains is that they seem to be fixed at the wrong end - the fixed end of the curtain should be toward the shower spray (behind the wall separating the shower...

Yes, I was. Sorry about that; I think most of my other comments still apply (passenger numbers are a little lower on Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth).

Purchased OBC is when you or someone else like a friend or (perhaps) your travel agent pay in advance to have a credit in your account upon boarding.
Promotional OBC is that provided by the line,...

1. No need to reserve. Your table is yours for all meals, at the time you want. Most people in Grills don't consider specialty dining to be a step up compared to what's on offer in their normal...
