Thanks for coming back to let us know the outcome. How did you enjoy your trip ?
It was fantastic. If I could make the voyage often, it would be wonderful.
However, there was terrible weather, rough seas, seasick feelings. No amount of meclizine, ginger, or green apples helped. After a couple of days I was okay. The seasick surprised me, as I thought the size of the ship would be soothing. It wasn't. I felt the movement from sail away.
The ocean was rough. Waves hit the Golden Lion windows and darkened the room- everyone taken by surprise. I wouldn't trade lots of these moments for a smooth sea.
Walking down the hallway, I found myself floating midair with the floor sinking and me with no floor under my feet.
There were lots of good memories and I wish I had sailed before, but that's life. Last year we crossed twice, even through a hurricane.
It's a marvelous way to enjoy the big skies and the horizon. We saw some porpoises, rainbows, ships loaded with trailers and a bird or two who hitched a ride.
There is more to say, but I suppose that should be a different thread.
Thanks for asking and I know I should have come back to share, but I was very ill arriving back in the US and then I thought there was not much the board would learn from a new Cunarder. But, I am glad to share anyway.
Looking forward to First Transatlantic Crossing on QM2! It's nearly boarding time
Enjoyed it so much that have now crossed Three Times in two years!!!
