EXTREMELY SHORT NOTICE! Anyone on the Europe side needing to go/return to the US? I took the TA on the QM2 last year in Sept and would like to return to the US aboard her again this June 24 but can't afford to pay the full price for an inside cabin. Being a Cunard World Member might garner an upgrade though ;-). I traveled with a wonderful mate last year that I connected with on Cruisemates but she will be returning in September. I'm easy-going, unpretentious, and not interested in the life-style of ballgowns, eating with the captain and bling but I would totally support you if this is what you wish to experience (you will need more storage which I will happily share with you.) I will be spending most of my time in the health spa, the movies, a few floor shows, and sharing dinners with you (if you wish) along with a good bottle of wine or two for the journey. Oh and penny-slots in the casino! I'm 63, non-smoker, social drinker, widowed, experienced sailor/cruiser. Love people and great conversations, visiting new places, photography and the movies. As of this posting, VTG is running a booking exclusive until June 8 of US$400 onboard credit on select balcony categories (shared between us) for US1299(not including port fees and taxes). I have not booked this cruise yet because the price of my airline ticket is more expensive and I would prefer to take my sweet time returning home! Please contact me ASAP. And if you are on the EU side, my TA said there might be a sail/fly arrangement available. (Need to verify!)
Definitely interested! I took the QM2 eastbound in September and it's about time to head back. Sounds like a good lifestyle, I usually spend my time reading and taking walks on the deck. My email is email@example.com, let me know if anybody has taken you up on this yet.
