  1. I agree, I do not understand the continuing perpetuation that the menu has been reduced to three courses. In fact, I think the menu most nights actually supports more than five courses. One could easily have a cold appetizer, hot appetizer, soup, salad, entree, dessert and a cheese course. The change in menu headings has not done anything to limit the offerings, only imagination.

    That is awesome. We have two Cunard cruises under our belt and are counting the days until our third. Dressing up and being part of the evening atmosphere is really something not to be missed. I see that you are experienced cruisers, but I think you will find the Queen Mary 2 to be a truly unique and fabulous ship. Have a great time and come back and report when you get home!
  3. There is someone here on the Princess boards who prefers to sleep outside and takes his own inflatable mattress and sleeps outside on this balcony, even has pictures to prove it. However, I would caution you, if you haven't slept outside, no tent, no improvised shelter under the stars before it can be a very different experience and not necessarily conducive to good sleep. I wouldn't take any of the cabin items outside or prop the door, but it is your cruise, if you really want to try it, take an inflatable mattress and go for it and then come back and let us know how it went.
  4. Club Class Dining entrance on Grand Princess, also on Deck 6, but on the Starboard side, opposite where everyone else enters on the Port side. The photo is about 14 days old.
  5. Hello. The answer to your question is two parts. First, all suites are by default Club Class. Among the mini-suites, only category M1 are Club Class. A quick review of Emerald Deck plans makes it look like there are about 34 M1 Mini-Suites. We have sailed Club Class multiple times and absolutely love it. Special entrance to the dining room, no or very short waiting most of the time for a table (come whenever you like), table-side meal preparation at lunch and dinner, omlete table-side preparation on sea days and no usually a special off-menu entree item at dinner.
  6. Have an awesome cruise! We swapped our minibat setup for sparkling water as we weren't going t9 drink the alcohol offerings, but I didn't enquire about a coffee card. If you have time, could you please check back and let us know how it goes?
  7. The Grand did not have on demand while we were onboard. However, we did receive a notice that there was a team onboard conducting installations to support future on demand TV onboard. I do not recall if they mentioned a date when it would be operational.

  12. Judy, obviously tipping is a very personal and sometime controversial decision. For us, we chose to tip Giovanni and each of the servers. We had different waiters at every meal, but over the course of ten days had a pretty even distribution among the team that was working in Club Class.
