Hi Karching,

My experience on cruises is that most cabins, including balcony cabins, are for two people, but there is often a sofa that can be made up into a bed for a third person. I have sailed...

Hi,

I read on another site today that the QE2 is to be moved to Cape Town where her owners also own dock space, but it wasn't clear whether or not this was permanent or just for the duration of a...

Don't get me wrong - we thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, actually more so than we did Oceana last year. It was just that standards seemed to have slipped, for example no delivery of "Britain Today" to...

Hi Triton,

You are right in thinking that on Cunard the grade of cabin you book dictates the dining room you eat in - Britannia Restaurant, Princess Grill and Queens Grill. In all three, you get...

Hi Jimbo,

I have done two transatlantics, one on QE2 and one on QM2 - the latter was slightly more casual than QE2, but on my QM2 transatlantic, it was 4 formal nights out of six - tuxedo or...

Of course, if you check in early, you have time to explore the ship if you haven't been on board before, you can have lunch, get your bags unpacked and generally have an extra half day's "cruise"

QE2

I have noticed in a couple of articles (about the QM2's chief officer and in your review of Cunard) that you say QE2 went out of service in May 2008. That is wrong. The ship is still in service and...

Anyone going on this cruise to North Cape in July? Has anyone sailed on Arcadia before and does the ship have FOD meetings?

I only know the Queen Elizabeth II terminal (there are two others) and as of my last visit there in July last year, there are no duty free shops - just a bar selling drinks and sandwiches.
