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.

We got caught like this when using a pre-paid money card, which you load with a fixed amount of money. If there is a hold on the card and the balance is low you can't use it.

We have just returned from a trans atlantic crossing in Britannia Club. Most of the tables are for two but are less than a foot from the next table so you are not really on your own. Some of our...
