  1. Probably not much use for the OP, but for anyone travelling from the north or the west I'd recommend Battlesteads Hotel in Wark. It frequently has two night deals available on Secret Escapes and excellent food. And at around 1 hour from the port it allows for a leisurely breakfast and even morning coffee before heading to the ship without too much hanging around waiting for check-in to open.
  2. I guess the QV book got lost as well? Haven't seen it for a few years either.
  3. Those were still the prices on QA Maiden, this month.
  4. I'm afraid not Bell Boy. It appears that while the food is free in the daytime there is a charge in the evenings! The cheese was $2.50 for a portion equivalent to canapes for 2. The oysters were $2.50 each. Perhaps part of the reason there are no free canapes in the Commodore Club, if they're charging for them elsewhere.
  5. A couple of small points I haven't seen mentioned. The 'do not disturb/please make up my room' signs are now magnetic. You just stick them to the outside of your door. There is a really useful nightlight, at floor level opposite the bathroom door. The casino isn't listed on any of the lift signs.
  6. Roulette: $5 min. Poker: $5 min. Blackjack: one table $5 min., one table $10 min. These are all on video displays so would change easily.
  7. Cropping, however minimally, seems to do the trick.
  8. 1: 2x blackjack, 2x poker, 2x roulette. Will check minimums. 2: Twice a day. Not sure what you mean by how many stewards. We’ve only ever had a single steward. I'm sure if they were unavailable for some reason someone else would cover but in 30+ years of Cunard cruising I've never known that to happen. 3: Yes 4: Depends on your check-in time and cabin grade. Probably Lido/buffet or Golden Lion.
  9. Queen Anne's newest crewmember has now taken up his position. His final training session. Try as I might I cannot get portrait photos to post properly from this phone. HH could you pls work your magic.
  10. I guess they're getting it ready for the cocktail parties.
  11. As someone that rarely uses the promenade deck on QE or QV I have no particular axe to grind, but here's my thoughts anyway. The promenade deck has a more consistent width without the very narrow bottlenecks that exist on the Vistas, so may be more suitable for those out for pure exercise. The lack of any view on 60-70% of the circuit may discourage those out for a stroll. And those that used the loungers are obviously completely out of luck.
  12. I got on at the top deck yesterday to be informed that the lift was going down. I thought, "I @&%£!* hope so"
  13. There are gates but no sign of a card reader. Though that may come.
  14. Especially when the alternative is two decks down, through the lido, and two decks up again.
