Does anyone know please, if there is anywhere on the QM2 where I can purchase a helium balloon? Or, anywhere I could get one filled if I bring an uninflated one from home?Hi
I've never seen helium balloons for sale on board. I don't recall ever seeing a helium balloon on a table or in any display so I'd be doubtful there is anywhere to get one filled but it might be worth a call to ask them.
Otherwise I suppose you could check the small print about what can be brought onboard & bring your own canister to fill the balloon yourself - though it would be hard to keep it a secret from the recipient
I'm afraid those on NYE and the balloons on party nights in the QR are not helium though.They definitely had them on the tables for NYE on QE/QV. And definitely helium filled. They used small canisters to fill them. We watched them doing it during lunch. Bell boy is right that the others are not helium as they wouldn't drop to the ground if they were!

That's right.....the whole point is a balloon drop.
Yes, they can provide helium balloons for a birthday celebration.
