  1. Hi Hattie, if you in the Commodore before second sitting dinner , I will be there seated near the at with a forum lady friiend . Come and say hello. We are easy to spot . Short bright red hair on my friend and I am colourful purple red . πŸ˜‚ My hair will be up in a formal style . Long sparkle dress . Would love to meet you. X
  2. I have cruised in Alaska and I can see why the dress code is dumbed down. The long hours of daylight when it doesn't go dark until after 1-0am in the morning, means people are more often out on deck watching the stunning scenery. I am sure people will still dress in formal wear but I would guess there will be far more people in jeans and Anoraks, and casual wear wandering around outdoors. I love formal nights and personally, I would dress up and ignore those that don't want to do so. Just enjoy as Alaska is stunningly beautiful.
  3. Hi Roscoe. Thank you for your posts and more so for your fantastic blog which was just great to read. I am still catching up on a couple of post but will read them all again as they were so good. Loved the photos and your pairing of shoes to amazing clothes. You stole the show. Many thanks for posting. X
  4. The gym equipment was replaced in November at the start of the Caribbean Cruise. It was replaced whilst in Southampton. The new equipment is really nice. I was first to use some of the machines. The Spa also changed on the 5 th December, . to a brand-new spa brand in partnership with Canyon Ranch, called Mareel Wellness & Beauty
  5. Hi Roscoe, I spotted you at the World Club Party . Not that I was there. Wish I was. Top sailor, Terry Quack Quack Waite. πŸ˜„ You were looking very dapper/ handsome in your Black and gold Kurta. Where did I see you? On the FB forum where Harry posts. Photos posted up of the party and I spotted you. Centre of the Queens lounge. Well, it is the only place to stand, get a few drinks and network πŸ˜‚ Loving your blog. X
  6. Yes, Roscoe39. I certainly did pick up your little message to me. How could I overlook those fabulous shoes? Wonder if they make them with heels? πŸ‘  I hope you bought them all. I am loving your blogs, you do make me chuckle.πŸ˜‰
  7. Hi Roscoe 39. Caught up with your wonderful blogs. Enjoying them very much as I always do. Thanks for letting us all cruise along with you. X
  8. I always wear my work out clothes to go to the gym. I use the shower room in the ladies facilities or the sauna. I would wear my bathrobe to go to the outdoor jucuzzi, or for after a swim, or going to the thermal spa although if you hand in your key card you get to use a locker in the spa so can change your clothes and get clean bathrobe. I would never walk around the ship in my bathrobe. I only walk from my cabin to the elevator and straight to the spa /pool area.
  9. Thankfully the Screen printed tiles are not as ugly as this.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  10. I always refer to it as ”Holland Americ Line ” because this is what I have always known it as. I worked on Holland America Line 40 years ago and that was what it was known by. Holland America Lines still use that name for their face book and other forums. Regarding tiles. The one's they give out today are a poor imitation of then Delf ware ones that were given out some years ago. Today they are just scream printed. Still nice to own though. I have quite a collection .
  11. I have to agree with your comments. The chart room was a great place to meet and on QV maiden world cruise it was very popular as meeting place for world cruisers. I was recently on QV. Nov/ Dec 2018, and since her refit and find it hard not think of the Chart Room the way it used to be.
  12. Hi Tampa Girl, I have done a world cruise on all three different Cunard ships over the last ten years. I have no preference as all three ships are wonderful. I tend to go for the intnerary. The the best world cruise in my opinion is when you do the full circumnavigation. Other world cruises, or grand voyages are very nice also. We did a world cruise on QM2 which was 108 night and we circumnavigated Australia twice before heading off to Asia. I have also done the WC voyage around South America. That was the one I least preferred. So all World cruises on Cunard are very special, and all three ships are great, however for me the best one was on QE 120 nights. Just my personal taste and it was a lovely world cruise as far as ports of call were concerned and I go for the ports, itinerary first rather than the ship. Which ever you choose it will be fabulous!
  13. Yes, true but new products, some new prices , new uniforms new relaxation beds in thermal suites and new aqua colours. Lots to love about this. ❀️
  14. The Spas on QV and QE has now changed to the new name of MAREEL.
  15. Christmas and New Year you will see some outstanding dresses. More glizt and glam. You can really go for it as you are never overdressed on Cunard. Christmas is the ultimate time to dress up. Glizy sparkle. Full length dresses stunning!
