I'm on a QM TA Crossing (onbound to Hamburg); it arrives in Southampton on August 10 this year. The other two Queens will also be in Southampton that day. I hadn't realized how rare of an occurrence...

I voted. I've never sailed Cunard (or any other cruise company) before. I booked on Cunard for 3 reasons:
1. QM2 is the ONLY ocean liner
2. QM2 is the only regularly scheduled TA (NY > Southampton)...

I'm one of the "new class of Cunard cruiser" - this will be my first cruise on any ship. I have purchased the cheapest stateroom for my first TA crossing in August, so, yes, I'll be traveling in...

Another newbie here. Part of the allure (at least in my mind) of Cunard, and traveling on an ocean liner is the dress code (or maybe I just saw the movie Titanic too many times).

Although my...

See - this is just confusing! If it was a Black & White Ball, I would feel out of place wearing a red dress; I guess I should just buy the red dress, and choose to wear that on another of the Gala...

Yes! I am on the August 3 crossing! We are doing the full 9 nights to Hamburg. It will be our first every crossing; and my first time ever on a ship :)

Your dress is lovely!

Thanks Host Hattie - I also wondered that, too! My TA crossing in August is showing:

Day 2 - Gala Evening - Royal Cunard Ball
Day 4 - Gala Evening
Day 6 - Gala Evening - Roaring Twenties Ball

As far as I am concerned, QV & QE are no different than any other line, but QM2 *is* different than any other line, for two reasons - it's is an ocean liner - every other ship out there is a "cruise...

I don't drink alcohol (never acquired a taste for it), but I'm addicted to Diet Coke. I am using my QM2 crossing as a detox - I like Diet Coke, but I won't pay exorbitant prices for it, so I'll be...

Twitter is my prepared method of "venting" - if you call, email, or telephone them with a complaint, it's anonymous. If you take it to Twitter, it's open to anyone who uses that social media platform...

I posted on Twitter, and was asked to DM them if I wanted to discuss the dress code further, so at least they seem to want to listen on Twitter...

Scenario:


You’re dressed appropriately for the evening; you’re seated at a table for 6. Two of your tablemates are dressed in jeans, t-shirts and baseball caps.


You look over, and see that...

That's interesting! I'm traveling in the opposite direction, and my Voyage Personalizer is indicating English language tours.

I'm taking my first TA in August, and I still plan to dress up as if the dress code hasn't changed at all. As this is a bucket list item, I doubt that I will be going on any other Cunard (or any...

I will be in Southampton on Friday, August 10. I believe all three Queens will be in Southampton on the same day. It sounds like it's going to be a nightmare as far as traffic goes!

Thanks, Diane - I just read your thread - that definitely gives me some ideas.

It sounds like getting to the train station from the cruise terminal would require taking a taxi - will a taxi driver...
Thank you for sharing - those pics look great!

I haven't taken my first cruise yet, but part of the appeal of Cunard is the formality of it; a throwback to another era. I like the idea of dressing for dinner, even for an informal night, and have...

I agree that Stonehenge is overrated, but I think unless you've actually seen it, you might not realize how overrated it is (reminds of visiting Plymouth Rock in the US - that was the most overrated...
Trying to decide what to do in Southampton
We are taking a TA Crossing from New York to Hamburg, with a day in Southampton.

I've never been to Southampton, but I have been to the UK several times. My husband has never been to the UK or...

I'm curious to know when to expect voyage personalizer to be updated to show which nights are formal? I'm taking a QM2 TA crossing in August.

QM2 | Question on luggage/packing evening gowns
First time TA crossing coming up in August (9 days NY > Hamburg).
I tend to travel lightly when I fly. I can pack for a 2 week international vacation using just a carry-on suitcase, so I’m feeling...

No advice for your question, but wanted to chime to say I'll be on that TA crossing (although I'm continuing on to Hamburg...)
