captain warwick or Captain Wright
have just read the qm2 review a bit confused, I thought the captain of the QM2 was Captain Warwick, when was he superceded by Paul Wright...?

Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
My understanding is that Commodore Warwick left the vessel for a well deserved holiday on March 6. While not certain, it is my belief that he will be back on duty by the time the QM2 sails for New York.

Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
I'm as confused as you on this................Does anyone have any answers???????????

Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
thanks...the way the www.qm2 review reads you would think that captain wright used to be the in charge of the qe2...................which was not my experience.

Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
Commodore Warwick is on vacation, and should be back around the 6th of April. Capt. Wright is #2 aboard the vessel when Commodore Warwick is on board, and acting#1, while he's gone...

Re: Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
Thank you Thulewx - that makes sense! Commodore Warwick has earned a break after all the hype - he'll come back refreshed and ready for for more of the same.

Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
Captain Wright is in charge until the Commodore's return. In fact there are three other senior officer's who attended the Captains parties and all had four bars on their shoulders. So you know, some of Captain's you'll see onboard are actually Captain's attached to the Royal Navy etc., We saw Captain Wright running around the QM2 everyday. He's about the most personable Captain I've ever met onboard a ship.

Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
Commodore is a higher rank than Captain. Commodore Warwick is the Senior Officer in Carnival Corporation, sort-of Commander of the Fleet.... Hard to tell when he'll back on the QM2, may depend on where they are at the projected return date...

Re: Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
commodore warwick was also recently appointed to that rank in anticipation of his new command of qm2...and we understand rightfully so.
captain wright, on the 3/6 sailing (his first in command on qm2) was MOST gracious and personable. yes, he did have command of qe2 as did the commodore. on our 3/6 sailing, he was particularly "sharp" in remembering names (called myself and my partner by first name every time he saw us), delightful on his reports from the bridge, and available in his many jaunts throughout the ship to have a short chat. it's obvious that cunard, in both the commodore and the captain, picked great guys who will bring many positive attributes (and comments by passengers and crew alike) to this new grand lady! if you read, captain wright, thanks for being so nice and we hope to stay in touch with both you and commodore warwick...and of course kim. mike and jon

Re: Re: Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
Thank you Mike and Jon
Now you know there is one Captain who reads these posts!!
Just to clear up issues - Commodore Warwick returns on April 12th until May 24th. I am then back until Aug 3rd. We basically will be doing 6 months each on the QM2 during the year but the periods of duty will vary.
Best wishes and look forward to seeing you back
Captain Paul Wright

I was on the QE2 under Capt. Wright's command on the SOU-NYC voyage that was over Sept. 11th 2001.

He, and his crew handled everything beatifully, professionally and appropriately.

I have a pic somewhere of Capt. Wright overseeing the docking of the QE2 from the flybridge at Boston harbor at the end of that voyage.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
Hi Roscoe
I dont think I am on that crossing but it will very much depend on prevailing weather patterns at the time how close you will get to the Titanic Site. Both Commodore Warwick and myself like to pass over direct position if at all possible.
All the best for your crossing
Captain Wright

Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
Thanks Cptn Wright.....was very impressed that the QE2 had such a number of books about her in the library on board so am looking forward to having one at hand on the QM2 as we follow the same route...approx anyway...and it would be great if there is some announcement if we get close to the site...will save me continually checking our position!!!!!! ..Dont care what the reviews here are looking forward to it with great anticipation with either if you in charge!

Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
Captain Wright, looks like you will be the Captain on the Fjords trip in July. What do you anticipate the weather to be like on this trip? Will we be sailing into the fjords or just stopping at the ports?

Re: captain warwick or Captain Wright
Well I`m looking forward for this April 16th voyage and can`t wait. If any of you was reading post from me in yahoo groups and look at my profile, well I haven`t updated since 1997 because I rarely use yahoo for e-mails or posts. On my profile it says I`m 17 but now I`m 24 going on 25 on April 13th two times as I fly out of Tokyo,Japan that evening and when I arrive in Honolulu,Hawaii the morning of the 13th which I`ll stay for two days before heading out to Southampton, England. I will also bring with me some old postcards that I`ve collected of the RMS Mauretania, RMS Lusitania, RMS Olympic and the first RMS Queen Mary. As you can tell I`m ocean liner fan and can`t wait for my first transatlantic voyage, it`s a dream come true!!
