  1. It was such fun reading through all of the comments from 2017 - and a good excuse not to get the packing done!
  2. The QM2 Log Book is alive and well, and residing in the library :). I had forgotten all about the log books - I ran up to the QM2 library and signed it, so now it has a 2019 entry. The librarian knew exactly what I was looking for!
  3. You can get some sun, especially in the early morning or late afternoon depending on which way the ship is heading. However, for the rest of the day, it may not be sunny, but it may be sheltered from the wind, and still lovely to sit out there.
  4. I'm so glad that Campbell will be on QM2 for the July 14th sailing. He is very talented, and I hope they don't hide him away as they tend to do on QE and QV.
  5. Thanks for posting the link. What a lovely story :)
  6. I am kind of a party person, so any time is good for me. The downside of the 11:15 party is that you do miss speakers you may want to see, on the positive side we use our Verandah lunch voucher after the morning party which works out well, and it gives us another night of pre dinner drinks with friends in the Commodore Club. As long as there is bubbly, I will be there :)
  7. Thanks for supporting the Princes Trust. Have a wonderful voyage :).
  8. I most likely will be blogging - I love the itinerary, and would like to share it with others :)
  9. Thanks! We will try to fit in the puffins - I agree, they are very cute!
  10. Wow - this is very annoying misinformation. Not exactly what happens in the one and only Britannia restaurant. "Main Dining. Price Included. Your table is reserved for breakfast, lunch and dinner in one of the sophisticated main restaurants aboard. Each is the home of deliciously imaginative menus, exceptional wines and impeccable service."
  11. Booking through a travel agent is still the best way to go. I know that doesn't help with your issues with Cunard, and they should do better, but using a TA saves times and money. Good luck with your booking - I do hope you get to do a world cruise. It really is something amazing, and worth the cost :)
  12. I love any of the souffles, but the chocolate one is the best! They also do a great beef Wellington as a main course. The lobster tails can be nice, but they are often rubbery so I give them a miss :)
  13. Your TA's reply is very strange. Firstly, 20 to 25 people in a QG stateroom is easily done, why, we have that number for our soirees in our Britannia cabin, although it is a bit of a squash and not ideal if you can't put people out on the balcony. The advantage of the stateroom is that you can provide all of the food and drinks yourself so it works out a lot cheaper. Our travel agency frequently hosts receptions on board - you have to pay for the food and drink if you do it in a public room. We have never heard that it can't be done. Roscoe's parties are of the stuff that urban legends inspire, may be you can out do him! I'm sorry we will miss meeting you as we only embark on the 14th.
  14. Yes, that is much more in our price range :)
