I enjoyed prompt, faultless service in the Queens Grill Lounge on Queen Mary 2 exactly a year ago.
The tea and food served was equally superb.

Nothing to complain about from me :)

My apologies. It would seem my memory has let me down yet again.
I am on QE in February and will make a point of correcting myself by lowering a blind!

Best wishes.

If I wasn't loyal to one line, but tried another... I wouldn't expect my original choice to credit me for "jumping ship"... 'cus that would be very odd... :confused: .

I much prefer the blinds closed in the Commodore Club on QM2, than "open" as on QE and QV (where the blinds are fake I believe and can never be "closed").

The reason is that I think the highly...

I simply can't imagine asking someone else to do my unpacking or packing. However, we all have different views, likes and dislikes.
Your Butler packing your luggage.
When I was in Queens Grill (just the once (so far)) I did my own packing at the end of the Caribbean cruise.

Just curious.
For those in Queens Grill who fly after disembarking, who ask their...

A slow walk/stroll around the promenade (maybe a couple of laps) if the weather is good, seeing the "early seaters" appearing in their finery.

I shower (after travelling) and then fresh clothes for dinner and the evening, "informal" means jacket-trousers-shirt to which I usually add a tie (some men don't, some do).

I received a "cruise log" of my first voyage, a WB crossing on QM2 in 2006.

The whole of the last full day and final morning on board were marked "Estimated at time of printing" ie conjecture...

Like Lanky Lad (Hi Lanky Lad :)) I've not noticed this on board any of the ships. Something I'll listen out for on QE next Feb/March.

Just to add to bluemarble's excellent answers; I've been to St Lucia on QM2 when she was the only ship visiting and we still used tenders as she is too big to enter the port (as bluemarble states).

On my cruise it was.

Often, when there are many ships in port that will all try to leave early evening, or in a popular bay which will be crowded with small boats come evening, I feel they often...

Hope this helps (a little!).

Hi smeeville/Sue, very quickly,

I think that Cunard is very suitable for singles, ask to be placed at a larger (6 or 8 person) table. I know others will wish to add to this, but my advice would...

Hi kentchris,

Until the arrival of diesel engines, "Engine Rooms" didn't need funnels*.

Before the arrival of diesel engines, Boiler Rooms had funnels.

Hi derekthesailor,

I've met and chatted with some lovely, delightful passengers on board QM2 mid-Atlantic who were using the ship simply as a means of transportation across the pond.

Hi bluemarble,

I've never been asked to prove I've insurance during the check-in process.

On my early bookings I often put fictitious insurance details in as a "place holder" in order to complete a booking, replacing them at a later date with the real thing.
