Default Re: Just back from crossing...any QM2 questions?

Have seen several mentions of a black and white ball and another one that i can't remember the name of. What is i the significance of these balls on board, and does each sailing have them? Normally, i think of a black and white ball as everyone going in either black or white. Does everyone do this on board? thanks

We had two formal nights on our crossing and one was called "black and white" and just about everyone did wear either black, white, or black and white. The men, of course, wore either black suits or tuxes (and we saw more men in black suits than I expected we would) and the women wore formal outfits of black and white. However, I don't think it's "required" because we did see the occasionally color that evening.

We're booked on the QM2 for the February President's Week sailing and we very much look forward to it. We took the QE2 transatlantic sailing July 2003 and it was great. The only thing we question is whether Cunard has learned a thing or two about running a childrens' program. It was disappointing on the QE2 and we travel with 2 children under 12. Do you have any knowledge of how they run their program for the 8 to 12 year olds? And do you know whether the cabin sizes are comparable to the QE2? We were pleasantly surprised by our QE2 cabin (No. 4009), which had lots of space, both closet space and for hanging out. And thanks to all for such great information.

We heard very good reviews of the kids program on board the QM2 from families on board our last sailing. the only down side was that they had their hands full as their were so many nationalities onboard as compared to a normal sailing.

Did you happen to take the Orient Express up to London? Haven't seen any mention of this on the threads and we are real interested in doing this but having a hard time getting any info from Cundard. DId you hear of anyone on your cruise if you didn't?
