, you all are great!!!!!! I thought that no one would bite. I am going on June 11th so anyone one going before that I need you to do me a favor. I am under 21 but not by much. And my friends that are traveling with me (and I ) are wondering what the drinking policy is on the QM2.........is it like RCL 18 for beer/wine 21 for everything or else...........If more that one of you would not mind asking a bar tender or two and then report back I would greatly apreciate it. The reason I ask for more than one person to ask is some times (or should I say a lot of times) we get conflicting stories back on this subject. Anyways thanks for all your help, and to all of those who responded.

Chad

I'd be glad to ask several different bartenders/waiters so you are "in the know" before you go. I will email you from the ship with my report on that subject. So read through all the stuff to get to the "Chad" comment. Nothing like having a "mission."

I am anxious to find out from those on the May 10th sailing to the Caribbean how the cruise was and what to expect as there are 4 of us from New Jersey going June 11th.

Also would like more info on what the dress during the day...resort casual or whatever one can think of.

Thanks!

My crossing is July 5th and I am just about finished shopping for my evening clothing, shoes, bags, etc. Getting this all packed will be a trick for me. On most trips I end up taking too much but I like to have choices. We figure that we really don't have to handle our luggage very much as we have arranged transfers to London and in NY we'll just arrange for a taxi from home to the pier. This is all so exciting and so much fun. For me the planning is such an integral part of the pleasure of traveling. Have a great time.

June,

We're from Kansas and are on the July 5th crossing also. What color are your shoes?

We will look for you.

We're arriving in New York on the 3rd so will have some time to enjoy New York before Sailing on the 5th.

We too are enjoying the planning and shopping.

To The Chad and the others from Jersey, no one was checking ages for drinks, but that was probably because almost everyone was over 35, most over 60. You just sign you rname and room number. Officially they tell you 21. I don't know where everyone else got told 18, as it is in the literature as 21, and I asked several bar servers what the policy was and they were adamant it was 21 oand over.

Shorts and tops okay for daytime. But not sloppy looking, and not in the better eating venues.

It was great, and I'd go again. Ship was beautiful. Food okay to great. Service terrible to great. It all depended. Just like what everyone is saying. I made a good time of it, so I had a very very positive experience. As I am sure you will.

Shelly,

One more question......what do guys need to wear in the dinning room for lunch. is shorts and a t-shirt ok, or do we need to wear pants.....thanks for everything. For those of you going on the Jun 11 sailing lets start a roll call with ages and state.

Chad

Chad -- For lunch in the King's Court (buffet) shorts and teeshirts were okay.

Officially shorts are not allowed in the Britannia Dining Room. Only once did we take the time for a meal in The Britannia Dining Room other than dinner and that was for a leisurely breakfast (1 hour). Many people had walking shorts on, as I did, but we were all seated without incident. I asked the maitre d' before assuming he would seat us. I told him he could stick us in an unobtrusive corner, and he put us at the Commodore's Table!!! That was a surprise!

As you will not want to draw attention to your age, you will want to pack really nice looking polo shirts and cotton shirts and no g-string shorts (if you are given to those types of things in Texas!). Longer shorts are better accepted.

I think because it was a Caribbean sailing, it was a touch more casual than I have heard that the crossings are -- due to warmer. I wore my shorter shorts on deck and on the back deck 7 to sunbath, but not inside. I did wear walking shorts (just above the knee) without any problem the rest of the day in and outside. We always descended to our cabin for champagne and dressing for dinner by 5:30PM, as did most people, so the dress code changed radically at this point of the day.

I stressed out too much over the clothes prior to the sailing. I should have packed what I originally thought, packed less, and stressed out WAY LESS.

I was the one who told Chad that the drinking age was 18. I looked up the Daily Programme (which I have in front of me right now) from Friday, May 7, 2004, and it says under "Service of Alcoholic Beverages"--and I quote..."It is Company Policy not to serve alcohol to persons under 18 years of age on board the QM2."

Hi everyone! I also said the age was 18 because I sailed cunard 9 times and it was always 18 so I thought the rule had not changed. But who cares I can drink!!!!! As for a roll call good idea..... My name is Alainna I'm from Delaware and I am 27! Some days I feel like I'm 80 and others like I'm 8!
