  1. Thanks, all! That's a load off my mind. 😊
  2. I know the answer to this question is probably buried in the forum somewhere but the search tool couldn't it, so I apologize if this has been answered before. I'm sailing solo for the first time in September. Will I be charged the HSC for 2 people or only for myself? The "Know Before You Go" says the daily HSC is charged "per guest, per day", but I was reading elsewhere on the boards where some solo travelers were charged for 2 people, just like we have to pay double the fare for the room. I'm just trying to make sure I'm not caught by some unknown surprise. Thanks!
  3. Mark, you would love doing a crossing. My sister and I did the QM2 from London back to New York in April. If we could, we'd still be on that ship in the middle of the Atlantic!
  4. Thanks, SilvertoGold! I do like a lot of sea days, so it sounds like it would be a better fit for me.
  5. That's what I was afraid of. There is a sailing that goes from Vancouver to Hawaii around the same time. Do you have any idea if the weather to the islands is as bad?
  6. Howdy all! I've done a lot of searching but haven't been able to find an answer on this. I'm currently scheduled to sail on the Nieu Amsterdam out of Vancouver at the end of September for 21 days, going through the Panama Canal, and ending up in Ft Lauderdale. What I want to know is how hot and humid will it be in the evenings and mornings when we are at sea? Would it be too hot and humid to use the balcony? I expect it to be warm when we dock, but it would be nice to know what it is generally like at sea. I currently live in Houston, so I can deal with some humidity, but if it is going to be like sitting in a steam room, I might change my trip. Thanks for any help you can provide!
  7. Thanks, Bluemarble!
  8. Some ships offer a set amount for a bag of laundry. Does Cunard offer this on the QM2? If so, how much is it?
  9. Thanks, everyone! It's nice knowing you can bring your own water still on Cunard. I've gotten rather annoyed with some of these lines that insist you have to buy everything on the ship at ridiculous prices. I'll definitely be making a stop for water before getting onboard.
  10. Does anyone know if it is still okay to bring bottled water onboard? My sister and I drink a lot of it, and she has some stomach sensitivities to tap and certain bottled water. A lot of the other cruise lines have gone to not allowing you to bring any bottled water or soft drinks onboard, so I'm hoping Cunard hasn't done so. Thanks!
