I'm reviving this thread since I just watched a video on the ITV News web site discussing this year's meeting of the three queens. That video ended with this comment.

It just occurred to me the reason UK fares are the same for P1's and Q6's on certain voyages probably has something to do with the "Upgrade expectations" promotion going on in the UK; "Book a...

I believe the OP is asking about Q6's on deck 9 forward (9001-90013 and 9002-9022) as compared to P1's. There are indeed several roundtrip crossings from Southampton next year where the fares...

Here's another video from NDR.de showing the preparations that were undertaken earlier today on QM2 to get her ready for this evening's departure from Hamburg.

Here's a link to a page on the NDR.de web site with a video and some photos of QM2's departure from Hamburg this evening.

I can't speak to when the $25 corkage fee will be implemented if it hasn't been implemented already, but it sure seems that it is Cunard's intention to increase the corkage fee from $20 to $25.

Excellent! The Red Arrows performance went on after all. I'm sure there will be many wonderful photos of the action to be found elsewhere. But here is my modest contribution as I am 4000 miles from...

I would be inclined to pick the itinerary that appeals to me the most rather than the time of year. The two voyages we are discussing are voyage V914 (June 4-16, 2019) and voyage V920 (Aug 11-23,...

Thank you very much for that nice compliment. I am recently retired after a career in IT. I have been told on one or two occasions that I might have made a good teacher.

I've not sailed in an inside cabin myself. But one tip I often hear from those who do is to tune your TV to the channel that shows the live view from the bridge. That way you can get at least an...

I can't find anything about that specific photo package online either.

In the Voyage Personaliser, there is this item under "Little Luxuries", "Memories to Treasure".

I understand the confusion, but that screen shot actually does show QM2 departing New York last Friday at about 5:45 pm as she is heading toward the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and out to sea. It has to...
What's up with the Ocean Terminal in Southampton after November 4th?
Just curious if anyone knows what the situation is with the Ocean Terminal in Southampton later this year. The Southampton Cruise Ship schedule is showing no ships docking at the Ocean Terminal the...

Upgrades can happen at just about any point. The one time we received an upgrade, it was 5 days before departure. Others have reported they have received upgrades as late as during check-in for their...

Funny you should mention the timing of the complimentary wine tasting event. We got caught out by the time being changed during our three recent June voyages on QM2 (New York to Norway and back). I'm...

Yes, indeed. The actual wording during the QM2 guest emergency drill (transcribed from several videos which are a few years old but which I believe is still the current wording or close to it) is "If...

Very interesting. I just used my VPN software to create a tunnel to Brazil. Then when I tried doing a cruise search on cunard.com as if I were in Brazil rather than the US, I got the same error as...

Not sure about balcony depth differences between decks with regard to Britannia Balcony cabins on QV.

I'm pretty sure the balconies are deeper on the Britannia Balcony cabins on deck 4 all the way...

No, not sure what is going on for you, Mario. When I do a search on "cunard.com" here in the US using no specific search criteria, I get "424 available cruises" returned in the search results. When I...

Unless I've missed something somewhere, the Britannia Balcony cabins are all the same size on all decks. Well, almost all the same size. Naturally the wheelchair accessible cabins are somewhat larger...

Yeah, not much more to be found anyway at this point, unless you want to drill down into the individual itineraries to see the specific dates of each port call or want to see some of the "sail by"...

It's only about 200 yards between the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal and the NYC Ferry dock at Red Hook. Here are links to a couple earlier threads started by frankp01 and Solent Richard with some...

The only thing I can think of that sounds like "fanfare, fanfare, fanfare" is the radio alert message "pan-pan, pan-pan, pan-pan" to announce a situation that is urgent but not yet serious enough to...
