  1. My guess average age on QM2 winter crossing is about 75-80. Just a guess. Seems that way to me. Lots of round trippers too from either New York or Southampton. Christmas time lately has been a trip from New York down to Caribbean and back. That's a wonderful trip as the ship goes all out for Xmas.
  2. I would think we spent about 3 to 4 hours in Tracy Arm on the Explorer ship. Then about an hour to get to Juneau and back to the Solstice. It was nifty boarding the Explorer ship inside Tracy Arm. Very special. We had plenty of time in Juneau as I think all aboard was at 8:30pm .. Alaska has never disappointed me. It's really impossible to capture an image of how close we got to the glaciers .. but I kept trying.
  3. Glacier Bay is certainly impressive. Been there and loved it. BUT -- Tracy Arm can be exciting too. We had a beautiful day off the Solstice (in 2013) onto the small Explorer ship for a close up look at the Sawyer Glaciers (South and North) and to top it off a pod of Orcas gave us a terrific show.
  4. This is one of my favorites from 2015 as it includes a very LONG queue -- a cookie --- a nap --- drinks before drinks -- sail away Fireworks -- and the Churchill Lounge.
  5. We had such great times in Alaska on Infinity and Millennium. We had hoped to get back there, especially Icy Strait with one of our favorite nature walks.
  6. Ah .. yes .. the Bistro on 5 for $5. And then at some point I think it was the Bistro on 5 for $10 .. ? We loved it on Infinity and Millennium. But can you imagine them letting you make your own crepe these days? Shot on Millennium Summer 2014.
  7. I failed to mention, the video was from summer 2012 on Infinity up in Alaska. Great times for us. Will they ever come again?
  8. For those of you who never did Qsine, here's what you missed in less than 2 minutes.
  9. For those wanting to do a Panama Canal transit, here's the Maiden Transit for Queen Elizabeth in 2011. What a day that was! But even more important for us our the glimpses of our dear departed friends Olga Moore (who taught watercolors on Cunard Ships for many years doing something like 15 World Cruises) and Elaine Reed (World Cruiser) who we miss so much. Ultimately cruising is about the people you meet.
  10. Yes. We received a refund on our credit card for the 42 lost days of the World Cruise on QM2. It was done prorata perfectly. Questions: Did you pay for your flight home from Perth or did Cunard handle?
  11. thanks for posting. Excellent job! We join the ship on Dec 22nd but I doubt I'll have your energy to do all that posting while on QM2 .. Fair winds to you ...
  12. I did this back in 2015 ... For Elaine .. we miss you so ... White Pass Summit Excursion - Skagway
