I think, this subject has been well covered, as it were. Red and Black Velvet, I think we're getting into smoking jackets here. one question will you wear a Fez with it?

I am of a different thought on the airport transfers. To Newark EWR by all means the coach it's far cheaper than a car service or a taxi, To LaGuardia LGA or JFK, it depends on the number traveling...

Perhaps more surprising to me was that calls made on my balcony in Southampton before we sailed went through the ships system, as roaming calls rather than the land cellular systems. I guess it...

Well not unexpected but no responses from the Germans. Now why am I not surprised. I was only asking a question not buying anything. So Silence!

Lamb, Get your internet package the first day for a few minutes extra. Also check with the spa when you board, they often have good boarding day offerings. I would avoid buying from the 'little...

The boxes are first come, first served. On formal nights there are several boxes on right and left rear than are reserved for people who pay extra for a special experience with a private reception...

I will shower and change from boarding and lunch, and a coat and tie for dinner. I don't get much chance to be a coat and tie guy, so I rather like it. Mike

VAT reclaim desk at Hamburg Steinwerder Cruise Terminal
I am sailing on QM2 Friday 3rd November, 2017 and have several UK vat reclaim forms, They need to be stamped by a customs officer in the European departure location which is Steinwerder in my case. I...
Cunard Queen Mary 2, 3rd November, 2017 westbound from Hamburg.
I started a thread for the 5th November voyage from Southampton, and got to thinking that there may well be some Friends who are boarding in Hamburg, either for the crossing to Southampton, or...

You can buy duty free into Singapore, then buy a fresh one to take on the voyage. Sounds good to me. Maybe one for you and one for your spouse and you will be good to go.

I have always been pleased with the service, the price and the turn around of laundry and dry cleaning. Far more reasonable than land based hotel service or even my own local cleaners. I usually send...

What you will get as a platinum is 2 more complementary hours of internet time per person, and an invitation to the Senior Officers Party, which at one time was an event, but there are apparently so...

I did it only one time, and at the time the Cunard "duty free" price was far more than the airport duty free, but it was Johnnie Walker Green, which was not available in the US at the time. It is now...

The WiFi is best described as slow and expensive. I was not able to find the list of charges, the closest I came was a statement that for $45 you would get 120 minutes of time. There is a very...

While that is true if you want a seven day Southampton to New York and vise versa. I just looked at T/As for 2018, and found several that do that route and a lot more that do Southampton to Ft....

Well its is exactly two weeks before we board in Hamburg for this crossing via Southampton. I usually enjoy meeting friends at the daily friends meetings and there have usually been one or two people...

I am having trouble getting my head around why some one would want to travel on Cunard, and not want to be properly dressed. Dressing well is part of the ambiance and elegance of the ships. If you...
