Default Interesting Mail Today: QM2

The postal lady delivered to us today a "Collector's Edition Preview Brochure for Queen Mary 2." The accompanying letter stated that it was sent to us as "preferred waitlist guests," and included our booking number for the maiden voyages. Wow. For only $37,499 (plus $108 taxes and $769 air) per person, CruiseCam and I could book the Grand Duplex Apartment. Not bad. Of course, we could always book a standard inside for only $2,449 pp plus taxes and air, but why go "steerage?."

Somehow, I just can't envision many antlers, pajama antics, balcony sliding, kite flying, "Friends of Kuki" shirts, golfing, lighted Christmas tree costumes, Phil at the Captain's Table, or Pamda and her spoon trick on that sailing. Well, at least not in the Queen's Grill (first class dining room). :o)

Well, doesn't seem like my style of cruising if they don't like pamda's spoon tricks! <vbeg>

Are you booking the Queen Mary, or the Queen Elizabeth Suite, Theresa?

Such a difficult decision.

I will let you decide first and then go with the other one. It is so difficult to decide!

Don't you think people would be willing to pay extra for the spoon trick?

CA: The sailing is January 12, 2004 and they do not say how many people the suites hold. The description of the Balmoral Duplex is as follows: "The most lavish suites afloat. Expansive living room with upstairs bedroom, oversized balcony, two marble baths with separate whirlpool tub and shower. 2,249 sq. ft." - That should hold at least 12 of us!
Pamda: They would if they knew what they were missing.

CA, if there is no shiny bannister, I'll bet we can rig a slide with a few tablecloths tied together!

Got the same brochure, I think the most interesting part is in the folder in the back flap that lists the four "Maiden" voyages (South Atlantic to Ft. Lauderdale, RT Ft. Lauderdale, and the West and Eastbound transatlantic). I sorta think after the first voyage to Ft. Lauderdale she'll enter a new category and be known as a Technical Maiden. (g)

Wow I can just picture all of us sharing the Suite together. Would that be some cruise or what? I can see the headlines now: Group of friends thrown overboard do to antler wearing, kite flying, rides on unapproved banister and spoon tricks not to mention a floating phlamingo named Phil. I bet that would be our last special innovation. <VBG>

Sort of like a "sleep over"!

How fun!

I don't know if any of all y'all have seen the top level suites on NCL Star?

The entire top deck is split into two3-BR suites. Each BR with private bath. Each suite with computer, printer, grand piano, wet bar, serving station for waiters, etc. AND there is a folding wall that could be removed to join the two suites.

Outside and down some stairs is an exquisite Oritental garden.

It either sounds terrific or terrible. Then there is the issue of food

Pamda & Theresa,

Let's ALL take it. Let's see...2 3-BR suites. That's 6 bedrooms. So we can either do 6 couples, or we can split up, boys in one and girls in the other and probably add another 6 people or so! I'm in. What about the rest of you?!!
