Hi does anyone know who is the current Captain of QM2. We are joining her on Wednesday for a quick trip to Sydney.
Capt Wells if memory serves.You are correct. I had a message from a friend who is onboard and mentioned that Captain Wells is the current captain.
Captain Christopher Wells came on the ship in Quebec on September 29th. You can tell when he is the master because the ship will be flying the Blue Ensign instead of the Red Ensign. (He is currently the only Cunard captain who is an active or retired member of the Royal Navy Reserve and thus the Blue Ensign.) Captains are typically on/off every two months. Outside of the world voyage the changeover normally takes place in Southampton.Cheers, was trying to work out who the captain will be for our 15th December round trip.
Suppose you folks would have palpitations to "dine at the captain's table"?It is a very enjoyable and sometimes amusing experience, from receiving the Captains invitation, to joining The Captains Table in the Britannia Dining Room on QM2 for dinner . Have been privileged on many an occasion.
Eat with the staff? How quaint!
Suppose you folks would have palpitations to "dine at the captain's table"?By that extrapolation an invitation to dinner at the White House can be taken as being asked to dine with a "US government employee".
