  1. We have 2 full days in Southampton and are going to Portsmouth to see https://www.hms-victory.com/ and then depending on weather go Corfu to visit https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/corfe-castle where my Mother used to go to as a child. We are on the May 17th sailing and she did book and choose deck 13 while on her last voyage in 2017 because she wants to see the new staterooms. She doesn't believe in spending extra money for a balcony or window because she doesn't spend much time in her cabin except to sleep. When adding me to her booking she asked about upgrades but was told the ship is fully booked but maybe something will change when we check in. :-)
  2. Thank you, I was thinking that too since she has been getting sick more often and will be 74 this month and there may not be many more trips. This was a very last minute trip to coordindate with my work and the added stress of canceling and rebooking so many things I already had in place from months ago. My daughter is so done with Vermont winters and glad to be heading home to Southern California with a dual degree in Art and Phsycology from Middlebury College! My Mom added me to the booking today for $470, she thought she had paid for a double but it was a single supplement and its an inside on deck 13, #13019. I hope there isn't any vibration I read about and I need to ask if she booked this room on purpose since it is so high up and far from everything. Her last trip she and my brother were upgraded at port to a balcony cabin...I can only wish! Our last trip was for 3 weeks in October 2016 to Ireland, England then the QM2 and by the time we boarded we were ready for some alone time on the ship and pretty much just saw each other for dinner. I will arrive 3 days prior to sailing so we can explore southampton.
  3. I am accompanying my Mother on the QM2 to NYC May 17th. She is a platimum member and this will be my 2nd cruise. Since I am her daughter and we are on the same booking am I allowed to attend the parties and use the priorty lounge? It would be weird to leave her at the door, she is getting older and has been chronically ill and needs a companion when she travels. Her friend canceled and she lured me onboard with all of her internet minutes so I could keep in touch with work and all I had to do was buy a one way ticket from Los Angeles. I already had a trip planned May 19th to NYC and had to change flights and all kinds of things just to go with her so it wasn't a decision easily made. My daughter is graduating from college May 26 so it is working out (thankfully!) that I will be arriving in NYC on the 24th and then driving straight to Vermont.
