As Host Hattie says, yes (with champagne in QG, not sure about PG?).

I dread spilling even a drop of Pol in my cabin; I'm sure it would be similar to the scene from Alien where the liquid burns through the floor and drips down and down, leaving a hole through three or...

To which my comment is "If it is very important to you, why aren't you answering?". Angus Struthers (if indeed it was he), managed to use many, many words to say absolutely nothing.

Not sure why he bothered frankly (or was even invited).

He could have saved himself the time (and ours) by sending a standard Cunard press release along.

Oh, just realised, he did.

Sadly, over the years, I've also seen some people treat the stewards/crew/staff with appalling rudeness; almost as if the passenger considers them to be some sort of subhuman slave.

They even...

Same here. Got another on QE in Sydney, February. I've pinned one on a Cunard Teddy Bear (it joins Gold and Platinum pins) :) .

The only thing I regularly value as a Diamond Member is the many hours of free internet time (usually with an extra "embarkation special" deal). Often the discount on the cleaning bill only happens...

Don't you always, routinely, add-on 15% in your head? I do to avoid surprises (actually, I can't work out 15% quickly, so add 20% for speed).

Thankfully, as you can see from today's conversion...

Thanks Mr Toad :) Of course, 15% isn't added in the shops (as per my example given), and even in the bars or restaurant (wine list) 15% doesn't usually cover the difference between the two...

As others have said above, all prices are shown in USD. Look at it as a week-long preparation for your US visit ;)

I agree with your observations.

I am one of those who normally wears a tie on "informal" nights (or whatever the name of non formal/gala nights is currently). (however I have one shirt that looks...

Well said majortom10.

I believe that Queen Mary was sold in the 60s to Long Beach "as is"; similar seems to have happened with Queen Elizabeth 2. There should have been a list "except the...

Hi NeedPeace

Technically no; I believe you need to be booked in the Grills or Britannia Club cabins for pillow choice.
However, I once asked my cabin steward politely for a change as the pillow...

I find it... interesting. Cunard trade so much on the "Ocean Liner History" and of the traditions of the line, and of the many ships in the fleet since 1840.
Constantly refer back to the previous...
