Yeah, Cunard went to a lot of trouble to update that FAQ page to include the new dress code definitions for "Gala" evenings and "Smart Attire" evenings and even included the new statement "During the...

The "rule" I believe underwatr is referring to is this bizarre statement about the dress code found in the Cunard UK FAQ for the question "Is there a dress code on board?"

"During the day

And there she goes. She's on her way. Bon voyage for everyone on board for her New England/Canada voyage!

Shouldn't be long now. Just heard QM2 is on initial on the NY Harbor webcam audio.

She never got more than a tad above 25 knots since I started watching on marinetraffic yesterday. Her past track shows she was doing more like 22-24 knots south of the Hamptons and then 20-21 knots...

QM2 arrived at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal about half an hour ago. See this earlier thread from this morning with more details about the reasons for her delayed arrival.

I see our voyager personaliser now also discusses the Alternative Find Dining option on QM2 as being "Steakhouse at the Verandah". We're too far out to book anything yet for our voyage, but I've...

Extrapolating from her current speed and position on marinetraffic, it looks to me like QM2 is going to be arriving about 5 hours late into New York today (probably close to noon before she will be...

QM2 is not yet showing up on marinetraffic via land-based AIS. But I do see a vessel described as "Passenger Vessel - Position received by Satellite" which is probably QM2. That vessel was doing 25.3...

They do tend to add more speakers to the documents in subsequent versions as they become available. And so far this year they have been doing a better job of updating the documents (roughly every...

I think Cunard does a pretty good job of what you are suggesting. Once you find the lists of shore excursions for a specific port, Cunard provides the following caveat.

"Please note: The shore...

Since you are in the UK, this link to a page on the Cunard UK FAQ should work for you to give you an idea of what the obstructed views look like on QE.

The answer to the question "How much are the drinks on board?" is back on the UK FAQ. I don't see any difference in the drinks menus on that page. I suppose I should have actually wished for price...

Cunard has just posted insight speaker lists for 2019 and the one insight speaker listed so far for QV's August 11, 2019 sailing is "Phil Holt - Red Arrows/Donald Campbell". I wonder if that's a...

Updated lists of Insights Guest Lecturers have been posted on the Cunard web site. They now include speakers for the remainder of 2018 as well as for all of 2019 for QM2 and most of 2019 for QE and...

In addition, it looks like all three queens will be in Australia at some point during February/March 2021. In fact, based on what the Sydney cruise schedule is showing, QE and QV may both be in...

My mistake. I can see the Cherbourg and St Peter Port shore excursions via your link. I can't see any excursions for the other two ports though, so hopefully the alternate strategy and the links I...

I'm not sure why, but for some reason I'm not yet able to see any of the lists of shore excursions for your voyage via the link to the "Netherlands, Belgium and France - Ports & Excursions" page Host...

The bulk of the Cunard 2019 schedule was announced last year on September 5, 2017. However, that did not include most of QE's Alaska itineraries for 2019 which were not officially announced until...

There was a video screen that displayed the Kings Court alternative dining schedule during our recent June voyages on QM2. It was on the port side of deck 7 and as best I can recall it was near the...

That was my thought too. Hopefully it's a sign of some drinks menu changes in the works rather than price increases.

I just noticed the Cunard UK FAQ for the question "How much are the drinks on board?" is producing the error "Can't find the page you're looking for." This isn't the first time this has happened with...

Voyage M011 (without the "A" suffix) is the 9-night Eastbound Transatlantic Crossing from New York to Hamburg from 25 April to 4 May 2020. For whatever reason, it doesn't show up yet on Cunard's web...

I don't know if these times are necessarily any more accurate than what you have, but here is what I am seeing on about half a dozen different sites for the 2019 QM2 Independence Day voyage.
