  1. Hello from the Queen Elizabeth We are day 7 of 8 sea days to Walvis Bay, Namibia. A couple of things I forget to mention in my other posts: When we left Southampton we had a Fireworks display that apparently Carnival UK put on for us and Queen Mary 2, I don’t know what for, I guess it might be because it was the day before Guy Fox night in the UK or it maybe because that was the last time Southampton sees the Queen Elizabeth for the next two years, It will be 2021 before Queen Elizabeth gets back to the UK. As the Queen Elizabeth will be spending the next two years in Alaska, Asia and Australia. And also We are now Diamond members with Cunard :D, we got our black cards this cruise! Whooo! So we are on the top level of the loyal programs for Princess and now Cunard :D Also when we get to Cape Town, South Africa there will be 1,000 passengers staying on the ship for the next leg to Australia! PS: If you don’t like heights, don’t look at the last photo!
  2. Hello from the Queen Elizabeth We are now in the Southern Hemisphere as we crossed the Equator Yesterday! :D King Neptune came to visited the Queen Elizabeth as we had our crossing the line ceremony! It was good fun!

  4. We have never been to Cape Town, South Africa before. We are docked in Cape Town overnight, so we got two full days here. I was wondering would you recommend doing here?? If you have been to Cape Town before, what things did you do here?? Also is the waterfront area safe at night?? Any ideas / suggestions are very welcome πŸ™‚ PS: We are thinking about doing the Hop on / Off Bus for one or both days while we are there.
  5. Hello from the Queen Elizabeth On Friday 8th November 2019, we where in Tenerife, Spain! We had four other cruise ships with us! (Artania, Europa 2, Marella Explorer, Ocean Majesty). We had a good day we went up to Mount Teide on a ships tour. We now have 8 sea days (yes! 8 days at sea!, this could be fun! haha!) on our way to Walvis Bay, Namibia.
  6. Hello from a rocking and rolling Queen Elisabeth! Since we left Southampton on Sunday we have had a force 9 gale! With 7 – 8 meter seas We had 40 knots of wind guesting to 50 knots of wind! By the time I post this, we will be out of the Bay of Biscay! When we went across the Bay of Biscay on the last cruise to the Canary Islands it was calm, so the Bay of Biscay have her teeth out this time!
  7. Hi Guys Last Sunday (3rd November 2019), we got back on the Queen Elizabeth after a two day brake from the ship after we did the Canary Islands cruise. Over the next 49 days I will attempt to post a few update and photos from our cruise. This will be internet access permitting πŸ™‚ I am also posting photos to Instagram and Twitter, I am not to sure if I can add those links here, but I will check and post the links at a latter time 😊
  8. Nice find. It will be interesting to see if they use that name.
  9. When we where cruising on the Queen Elizabeth we where lucky enough to rendezvous with the old Queen Mary in Long beach, California for the 4th of July 2019 Fireworks.

  11. Pacific Explorer has been very lucky today as she has been able to visit Norfolk Island: I think this might be the first cruise ship to visit the island this year, at lest for this season πŸ™‚
  12. Has anyone here been to Le Port, Reunion before?? if so I was wondering what did you do here on your visit?? Any information or advise is welcome 😊
  13. That is why I have created this post, so this can be our roll call for now 😎
  14. Some times yes and some times no. Not that many cruise ships go to Stewart Island ( Oban ).
  15. I wonder if Royal Caribbean would let other cruise line ships dock there?
  16. It will be interesting to see if they do build a wharf.
  17. Hey David, it might be time we start a new "Cam of the Day" thread 😎😊
  18. You don't need to be sorry, we are still posting in this thread πŸ™‚
  19. If there is anyone here booked on Pacific Adventure maiden cruise from Singapore to Sydney - 12th Oct 2020 I have set-up a roll call here https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/2701687-roll-call-pacific-adventure-singapore-sydney-maiden-cruise-12th-oct-2020/ for this cruise.
  20. Hi Guys A few weeks ago we have put a deposit on this cruise. We are a family of 3 (Mum, Dad & Me the son) we use to live in New Zealand (but we are now sea gypsies 😎 ). We will have been on the Golden Princess before she went in to dry dock to become the Pacific Adventure. It will be interesting to see what P&O do to the Golden Princess! Any one else coming with us on this maiden cruise ?? 😊
  21. I have tried to do a search on cruise critic for Le Port and Reunion Island, but I have been been able to find much apart from one from thread from 2016. Has anyone else here been to Le Port, Reunion?
  22. Thank You everyone for there information and replays, very helpfully 😊 We had a great time at the Raptor Centre and Fortress of the Bears rescue centre.
