Yes Janny444, your table is "yours" to use whenever you want during dinner time. In addition, that same table is yours for breakfast and lunch whenever you choose to eat in the dining room.

I just booked the same cruise. Unfortunately though, flights and transfers are not an option offered to us in Australia.

There were several glass fronted balcony cabins remaining on deck 4 when I...
QE to Alaska
On this topic of future itineraries, I was sent an on-line survey by Cunard yesterday which covered many things, but specifically talked about 7 and 10 night Alaska cruises out of Vancouver in June...

I am also considering a transatlantic around August 2016. Is anyone able to tell me when the schedule for 2016 is likely to be published?

Dr Payne is a wonderful speaker with great humility. When I boarded QM2 in Sydney in 2012 I had the good fortune to be seated next to him at lunch on my first day aboard. It was fascinating to chat...

Hi Salacia

I had not taken the medications, but according to the Red Cross the issue was simply that I had been there, and even if I had taken the medications I was still ineligible to donate...

I'm certainly no expert, but last year I did call at Rabaul for a few hours on QM2.

I'm a regular blood donor, but when I went to donate a few months after my return from the voyage I was declined...

Yes I confirm this. On my last 3 week voyage, the waiter just turned up with my double espresso, without me having to ask, from night 2 onwards.

Yes Jimsgirl, you can get juice from room service. My wife was unwell on a voyage last year and we ordered MANY glasses of cranberry juice from room service at all hours - no problem and no delay.

I did a 20-day leg of the 2012 World Cruise on QM2, Sydney to Hong Kong. I didn't eat in King's Court (apart from a couple of quick tea breaks when I was in the area) so I can't comment on the...

I was in Britannia on a leg of the world cruise on QM2 last month. Lobster was on the menu one night but I did not order it - on my waiter's advice. He told me that several diners at the first...

I was on the ship when we missed Saipan. There is no doubt in my mind that the Captain's decision was the correct one, even though I understand that the people of Saipan were disappointed.

I just had an "emergency notification" from Cunard by email that says:

Queen Mary 2 will now berth at the Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay in Sydney on 7 and 8 March, rather than...

Fantastic! I'm boarding that day. I wonder when Cunard will tell me about the change in arrangements - no boarding at Darling Harbour and catching a catamaran I'm guessing...

I have just been down to Fremantle to look at this magnificent ship. I will be embarking in Sydney next week, so all those on board now please look after her for me!

I've heard this sort of sentiment here before - do the people who feel this way also feel uncomfortable about travelling on planes that have first and business class as well as economy?

Thanks again for your blog Whitemarsh. It really adds to my level of anticipation!

Thanks for that. Interesting that you have to disembark on the first day of a 2-day visit - when we disembark in Hong Kong (which is also a 2-day visit) we get off on the second day so we get a night...

Thanks for the excellent descriptions thus far Whitemarsh. We are boarding in Sydney on the next leg so it's great to get a picture of what it will be like.

My wife and I enjoyed sitting in that box in our 2010 crossing. In fact, the only night we didn't use it was the night it had to be reserved and paid for. For each of the other nights we had the...

Yes it was windy here last night Salacia - the furniture on my balcony walked around a bit! I'm wondering if the late Queen's arrival will mean a slightly delayed departure as well, so that they can...
