  1. We are so lucky when we are in the Club Britannia Dining Room our Captain prepared Crepes, Bananas & Peaches Flambe and Cherries for our Baked Alaska with no problem on the QM2. They do taste better when done at the tableside and not in a group form for many dishes. Personal Prep makes the difference.
  2. Frank, Take Care & Stay Safe. We too are concerned in NYC..... Watching the reports too about the multiple Big T's....
  3. Kindly Beg To Differ from a New Yorker... Ditto, Enjoy your day...
  4. Unfortunately you not as informed as we are. Special email received from City about these two precautionary barriers being installed. Came in as of Friday evening. So we rely the City do what they believe is necessary under the circumstances. Have a good day..
  5. Getting Ready for the Tropical System on Tuesday to Hit NYC.... Winds 65 mph Rain 5 inches or better Rip Currents Heavy Surfs Heavy Flooding - Especially Lower Manhattan New Special Barriers - Designed after Hurricane Sandy...
  6. As a American Bacon lover, made right it's very tasty and look forward to it. We make it right especially for BLT's.... Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich Sorry you had it wrongly prepared..
  7. Hi oskidunker, Yes we too see the Mein in NY Harbor at times of the year. We sailed the Cunard Caronia in August 2001 with numerous German Passengers and it was a challenge. After each PA announcement in English there was one in German. Two different Daily Programmes were printed. Even calling of BINGO's numbers were in English & German. The Social Hostess announcements at Showtime has a German Hostess. Even the Menus were printed in German. We Passed the Test......lol.....
  8. So Sad....... QM2 beached.......She deserves to give joy to the passengers who love her.
  9. Hi All, Well NYC in the last two days and next two keeping up with it's nick name The Big "Baked" Apple. Extremely hot and some streets are empty and unfortunately with the health emergency not that many places to escape too. Phase 4 opened up to certain locations and not too many. Looks like indoor dining will be the last locations to be re-established in the future. Lucky many of the outdoor dining or sidewalk cafes established do have umbrellas to shade the sun. Theses are the kind of days we remembered when boarding a cruise everyone headed to their cabins, changed and straight for the pools with that topical drink in hand. Those were the days to remember and hope will soon return in the near and not too distance future. Reviewing plans to either escape on a short vacation to the Jersey Coast or Up State NY in the Mountains. Both still not in the situations we would like since changes are established and not the we remembered in the past.
  10. Hi cgtnormandie, Yes I wanted to see what else other like. We agree with you. We sail the QM2 and first board and drop off our hand bags at the already available cabin. Then we head the crazy Kings Court Buffet. First we find the table then we each go up one holding the table. Granted being on the QM2 don't think we have nice lunches in the Buffet. It's crazy. Next time we are going to try a bar that serves Fish & Chips that to new passengers don't know about and head to the buffet. We too won't eat to much since we board around 1230PM and dinner is around 630PM. So having a decent meal around 1PM will hold us for our first excellent meal later on. There is enough goodies to hold us till then. Since we are in a separate dining room, we don't experience the hair raising first night...
  11. Hi oskidunker again, That's a new one, sweatshirts on Formal Night.... Penalty for that should be walking the Plank! lol..... Honestly really never heard arguing on board... Cunarder's are more understanding. You will see a difference in each line. Yes, they should walk the Plank!
  12. Hi oskidunker, Yes we have seen passengers denied access to the Britannia Restaurant by the Captain/Ass. Captains of the Dining Room. Either at the Main Entrance or side entrances. They were kindly approached to return to their cabin for more appropriate dress to be changed too. Some do enter when the Dining Room when the meal service is in full swing and are not first noticed but were approached. The Staff are very polite with their approach and never saw any debate. The passenger just exited and returned in proper dress for the suggested dress code of the evening. We seen it happen in the past either on Embarkation Day or when we sailed on Caribbean Sailings shortly after departing the port. Some people just at time play a Game of Chance to see if they aren't noticed. The one thing we look forward to even on Embarkation Day is the daily Evening Dress Code on board the QM2........
  13. Hello Camgirl From The USA.... If you Google Mask Patterns you may find many articles or suggestions. At the beginning when the Virus attack started in the USA and cloth masks were suggested, many many articles hit the internet for those that did not want to purchase them. Many articles and suggestions appeared for those willing to make their own.
