  1. Hear, hear! I understand that language changes over time, and that words acquire new meanings according to how people use them. Nevertheless, the traditionalist in me really appreciates you pointing out the nuance here. 🙂
  2. None necessary; I appreciated the additional nuance. Thanks to everyone for their input here! I know we're 14-months-and-change out from our trip, but we're looking forward to it. We may have even talked another couple of friend (friends who are also a couple? friend-couple?) into joining us (or at least, they sounded enthusiastic yesterday, so I'm hopeful).
  3. May one ask why you’re so concerned about people agreeing with your assessment re: classism? Please keep in mind that I say this (a) grounded in my unabashedly working class existence and (b) as someone who has not yet traveled via Cunard, but has vacationed with other lines.

My partner and I haven't been on a proper vacation in a few years now, so I (maybe a little impulsively?) booked us for Transatlantic M143, 15 Dec 2021 (Southampton-NY) — fingers crossed that life has returned to some semblance of normal by then, or at least normal enough for this trip to happen. The big question — weathering the weather, whatever the weather... I know that calling the North Atlantic 'unpredictable' is something of an understatement.
