Default QM2 - March 6th. sailing

Hi,

Is anyone going on the March 6th sailing of the QM2. I will be with my family and was wondering if their are any other gay individuals on this sailing or if there are any gay crew member nights that passenegers can meet with the crew.

Also, I would like to hear about the type of people on the QM2, the food and entertainment, etc.

Thanks,

Nick

pied piper travel (new york based) and rita orwell travel (fort lauderdale based) agencies have groups on 3/6 qm2. should be fun. we'll have to post room #'s as we get closer so we can get in touch...as of now, rooms might be changed or aren't assigned yet. i posted earlier about 3/6, no responses, so maybe it's time to get on the board folks and let's meet! good friends on maiden say ship is GREAT so looking forward...i'm also going aboard 1/28 for luncheon, may have info from that visit. mike (and jon)

Don't bother trying to hookup with the crew. They will be put off at the next port if they are caught with a passenger. This is the way it is with most ships policies. Male or Female! There was a rummor of a gay crew bar on QE2 called "The Pig Sty" that the crew took passengers to, but there was an "incident" and now Cunnard does not allow that. The crew is only allowed to get off the ship after all the passengers have left on their shore excursions, so you could hang around and check out your gaydar if you wanted to meet some cutie. But this is still not recomended.

If you go to Piedpipers web sight, they do have pictures of past cruisers. I woulds say that the average age is about 50. It's not hard to spot them at late seating because there are so many men seated altogether.

I have also traveled with my parents and have enjoyed it. Of course you said "family" and not "parents". But I enjoy it because I don;t see my parents very much.

On QM2 i'll be in cabin 11086, if you want to ring me. That number is not likely to change. When they don't assign a cabin number is because they think they may be able to upgrade you. On an Alaskan cruise with my parents, I went from the lowest price outside cabin to a balcony cabin.

by the way, for those interested--this sailing or others. the brittania maitre' d is a friend of some of our posters...david thompson. evidently a very pleasant, sincere guy and of course "family" so maybe you can glean a bit of information from him...but don't be overbearing or put him in an embarrasing position of course!

A friend and I will also be on board. That should bring the total of "family" up to the high hundreds. The crowd may be a bit older but should still be fun. Hey, it's a cruise!

Several couples on the maiden Caribbean voyage. Many of the crew are family. The vocal quartet is totally gay. Just follow them. They can be found performing usually about 8pm and 10pm in the grand lobby. The most popular bar was the Chart room. The Commodore club was too far from Britannia and I understand it's usually very loud. It's was one of my favourite rooms on the ship. I also really loved the atmosphere on the Chart room before dinner, on formal nights it takes on the feel of a 1940's ocean liner.
The tender process can take some time and so if you have hoping to meet any crew good luck.
If you have any questions please don't hesistate to ask.

don't know the total for pied piper, (which we believe is minimum of 150) but rita orwell travel in fort lauderdale also confirms 90 cabins booked. so that's l50 there (leaving room for maybe 30 singles, not doubles). maybe 300+ just these two groups. ok, guys and gals, we're gonna really be visible on this sailing! look forward to meeting "famiy" aboard. mike and jon (in wilton manors, the little "gay" city in fort lauderdale).

Hi Guys,

We (Paul and I) will be on March 6th with the Pied Piper group, however, we also have some other friends going as well. We're in Cabin #4053 (I think that's steerage). So, if you get a chance to make it down to the bowels of the ship stop by or give us a ring! This is our 14th cruise in 12 months, so it will be interesting to see if the people and the ship will make the trip unforgettable. There's definately plenty of family going on this voyage so we can all meet up. I've heard the place for family if the Commodore Club and the last family group took over the place at night. There's been some bashing on service and food issues but if we band together and all have a great time amongst ourselves, we'll be able to endure any hardship the Queen has to offer. It's really great to see that so much family is onboard for this trip and we look forward to meeting all family members and having a great time!

Greg

No doubt the cart would be removed from the port of call list. It never fails:-) See you onboard

Everytime we think we going to cart, it's always removed:-) it's getting to be a bit like Haiti:-) What cabin are you in?

This is the second time missing Cartegena for me also. Guess it wasn't meant to be. It's a week to go and no cabin assignment yet. I'm praying for the upgrade fairy to bless us with a visit. .

to be honest there's not a whole lot to be missing in cartegena...we were "mobbed" there by street vendors (even ON a ship tour) and it was like wanting to have a fire hose to keep them away. they would NOT take no for an answer. but the emeralds were good, tho... if you'd like the name of a reputable jeweler there, and she WILL ship, it's "Maria Rohas, Emerald Plaza No. 9, Rojas de Plata Y CIA. S.C., NIT.800.241.982, Cartegena, Columbia : Tel. 011 575 664 6274" (from US). she is the owner of the store. am posting because several on boards said they were disappointed in not being able to look for emeralds there. we lost an emerald ring ...in the panama canal of all places...that we purchased from her, called and told her, and the next time she came to miami she replaced it, remembered it exactly and the replacement was very close. she also brought her very handsome son with her lol. now that IS good service!
