I agree completely about the deck 13 cabins. We had a week in them last year and have booked a round trip next year

Like your husband I have hearing problems as I can only hear in one ear. My first time on QM2 was a three week voyage and they put us on a table for 6 in the middle of the Britannia restaurant and...

Yes, I can remember buying advance credit at $1.80 to the pound. Sadly, those days are long gone.

We have been in Britannia, Britannia Club, Princess Grill and Queens Grill, although only the first two were on QM2. I think that the Britannia Club is the best value and we have done that twice and...

We were in the choir last year and can really recommend it. They had two choirs and each one sang for one NSO performance.

I'm not really complaining, just pointing out how the prices vary. Last year we paid £2,579 each for the same cabin and that was just for one way, although we did get three nights in NY, so the...
Britannia Club - price change
I booked two Club cabins last December for a voyage in April 2019 at a cost of £2,499 each. Now I find that Cunard are selling them at £2,199 each. Quite a reduction? My travel agent contacted Cunard...

We got to see backstage for free on our last voyage by joining the ship's choir. We were accompanied by the National Symphony Orchestra with Anthony Inglis conductor and choir-master.

We were transferred to Brooklyn from our hotel last year and arrived at 12.30 to find that everyone else had the same idea. Boarding took over two hours. The staff blamed it on people ignoring their...

We did a Westbound in 2007 and booked a Manhattan trip. It took so long to get through immigration that we only got 30 minutes in Manhattan. Cunard did refund us the cost of the shuttle though.

We did an Eastbound crossing last year and we were in the ship's choir with Anthony Inglis and the NSO. Highly recommended.

It would probably be thought a bit rude. And even the tables for two are only about a foot from the next table.

When we boarded at NY last year everyone turned up at 12.30 despite being given different boarding times so it took us over two hours to get on board

I like the obstructed views on deck 8 as I hate heights and it feels safer when you are looking at a lifeboat rather than down at the sea

I may be wrong but I think that American proof spirit is a lower value than British so 47% American may be 40% British

You should be aware that tables for two are usually only about six inches from the next table so not really private. We have always ended up talking to the next table as if we were a table for four...

I was once in the Grills Lounge and mentioned to the waiter that I fancied a margarita but that they tended to be very weak on cruise ships but he promised me a real one and it was.

We have been in Britannia, Britannia Club, Princess Grill and Queens Grill. The last two are very nice but not really value for money unless you have lots to spare. The best for value is the...

You do have to check that cruise cover is included. With a lot of policies it is excluded.

On our last crossing one of the dogs had crossed so many times that we were told that it was a diamond member.
Thanks

The only problem with Intercruises is that their phone number is an 0843 one so it can be expensive.

We went from the East coast tothe West coast of the USA on Amtrak and the steward in the dining car tells you where to sit and who with. We met some very nice paople

But if you sat with them every night they soon would not be strangers.

The other advantage of Britannia Club on QM2 if you are a dog-lover is that you can walk aft from the deck 12 cabins and see the dogs being exercised from the kennels.
