does any one knows what is the best way to book your shore trips when you get on board all the other companys i have been with you could book befor you go on board as a lot of the trips we would lik to go on are limited
all so can you buy a bottle of spirit for use in you cabin as you can do with PO
this is my first cruise with cunard first started cruising on po with canberra in 1982
is ther any other first timers on this trip with cunard
You can send in your Shore Excursion form beforehand but it is not processed until you are on ship. Miami sends them to the ship. There is not any guarantee you will get the tours you want, but it does avoid --maybe-- a wait in line at the onboard tour office or a sell-out.
I would shy away from the tours. I have taken several Cunard arranged ones and they seem to be exercises in getting everyone on the bus, maneuvering traffice, stopping, getting out and back on, waitin for stragglers, and then getting everyone off the bus.
Unless the tour goes someplace unqique and special that you can't live without seeing, I would do shore trips on my own.
My wife and I are also going on this cruise. We are first timers on QE2 too but have cruised with Cunard previously on Caronia. There was no problem taking a bottle on board on that ship. As far as tours are concerned I guess we have to get to the Tours Office soon after we board if we want to be certain of getting the tours we require.
