  1. We did not observe any engine or other major mechanical issues on that cruise. Jumbotron screen at the pool broke partway through the cruise.
  2. We were on that cruise. It was a medical evac. Observed another one in Cabo.
  3. We were on the post refit cruise. As others have reported, boarding was hours late, and the refit continued during the cruise, including new carpet in our stateroom. Crew was distracted for the first few days cleaning areas and continuing the construction. Some features did not work, or broke during the cruise, including the pool area Jumbotron (no loss as it was playing ads and loud music all day). Frankly because of the poor execution by Princess during this cruise, we would be hard pressed to choose them again. We are 20 year veterans of Cunard, HAL, Azamara, Regent, and others.
  4. We just concluded a cruise on the Coral Princess. Brought tux and gowns. Very disappointed that there is no dress code enforcement whatsoever, and you may be dining next to a guy in jeans, a cheap blazer, and tee shirt.
  5. Was wondering if the onboard shopping on QE includes either Chanel or Lancôme cosmetics (not perfume). Susan is hoping to make some cosmetic purchases! Cheers, Don
  6. Fingers crossed for an upgrade! Cunard originally messed up Susan's status (she is a plat on Cunard), but very happy to have a balcony as we booked a great interline fare (I am United Airlines retiree). Cheers!
  7. We are on the 2017 cruise....checked in to the roll call thread! Board a week from today in SFO!

    QE2 Disco

    Sigh. Such great memories of enjoying a nightcap in the Yacht Club on QE2. 😀
  9. Cabin 6041. Will be sure to report. First time on the QE, but long time Cunarders (plat and gold) with many crossings on QE2 and great cruises on QM2 and Caronia. 😀
  10. We did post to the Roll Call...thanks for the heads up!
  11. We love the late seating. Less hurried while dining, and great times scoping out the parade of early diners passing by while enjoying cocktails! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  12. Anyone else booked on the QE departing San Fran next week headed to Sydney? We are very excited to be on this cruise! First time on the QE, but longtime Cunarders with many trips on QE2, Caronia, and QM2. Cheers, Don and Susan from Chicagoland Sent from my iPad using Forums
  13. We are just off the Journey on Sunday, and while we loved the Sunset Bar area, we don't think the "open while under construction" worked very well. Having guests sit ten feet from workers in dust masks doing tile work not a good idea. Waiters seemed stressed as they had to run to another bar to fill drink orders. Once the work was done this became our favorite place for a before dinner or after dinner cocktail. Hours of other bars seemed a little wacky with not much open at 5:00pm. Working on a full review of our cruise.
  14. Our understanding is that if you do not purchase the liquor package, but order a cocktail with the higher quality spirits, you will incur a charge. Any idea how much the charge would be, on say an Absolut martini, versus the standard Smirnoff? Trying to assess if the liquor package would be a good value for us. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
