  1. I also was around at the time of Queen Victoria’s arrival back into the Solent waters. I was waving to passengers onboard from my vantage point on the ISLE OF WIGHT. Good to see her arriving mid morning makes a change and a chance to get some photos.
  2. Loving following your blog. Excellent .x

    QM2 2022

    The last time QM2 went round the horn was in 2009. I still have my T Shirt to prove it.😊
  4. I feel confident you will be in good hands. The staff have to be able to cope with all clients needs. Don’t let it worry you and enjoy your wonderful cruise . Love to you both . X
  5. No never had my colour done on QM2 so can’t answer that but if you unsure I am happy to come a, long with my foils and comb and do your highlights.πŸ˜‰. Any excuse to be onboard with you.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Hope you have a good cruise. Xxx BTW. I think they probably use Wella colours, but it doesn't matter as long as you know the number you like as all brands are international , numbered colour coded. So lightest blonde is always a number 12.etc.
  6. Hi Bigmike911. My husband always takes his white tie and tails on all our Cunard Cruises. I must say he has never been mistaken for the Mairte D. He loves his jackets and more so his colourful ties. He has also been known to wear his morning suit with his top hat and tails to the Royal Ascot Ball. You can never have too many jackets and nice clothes on a Cunard cruise, and my husband would never, ever, dream of taking his jacket or tie off during the evening.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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˜‰
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. Thankfully the Screen printed tiles are not as ugly as this.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
