Its not lunch!  Its drinks + light canapes, in the afternoon - exact timings to be confirmed.

The idea for the weekend is Saturday + Saturday evening + sunday up until early afternoon.

But delighted to have you aboard :)

That's great Rob. Didn't read it properly in all the excitement. However no doubt we will have a food stop somewhere along the way in Liverpool?

Thanks Rob,

Just to confirm myself & Karen for the QV visit and all the other fun stuff too. It will be great to finally meet some of the people that I have come to regard as friends.

Will send passport details etc by PM.

Tom and I will be attending and looking forward to meeting other forum members at this event.  Good that even although there are limited places for the QV visit, we can still meet to wave the ship off and for drinks later.

Hi Rob
Nice to hear from you and a happy new year to you.
Shona and I would loved to have joined you in Liverpool but unfortunately we are away on a cruise from 22nd May till 3rd June.Perhaps we will meet in Liverpool in May 2015 when the 3 Queens call there.
All the best for 2014

Hello Rob.

Firstly a very Happy New Year to you all.

After missing the Clyde get together last year I would be very interested in joining everyone on board QV. The other suggested activities, particularly a visit to the Cunard Building, sound wonderful.

Thanks Graham, Happy New Year to you too, and good to hear from you.

I've added your name to the list for the QV Visit. 

Details will be coming soon about the Cunard building visit (if it can be arranged) and timings etc.

Cheers,

Very sorry you won't be able to join us!  Maybe we'll still do some sort of Clyde gathering, and we can see you then in between cruises!?

And yes, there's always Liverpool 2015!

Cheers,

Very sorry I won't be there -- expecting visitors who depend on mid-term holidays to come with my godchild and his brother :) .

Hope you all have an excellent time -- and looking forward to pictures and reports!

I can't believe there are still places available for the QV visit in Liverpool at the end of May.

I really thought Rob would be fighting people off for this trip !!

We haven't booked it yet as we are on board QM2 for her 10th Anniversary Celebratory Transatlantic Crossing on the 9th May 2014, but also hope to be either on board Queen Victoria for 100th Aquitania trip, if not then will be in Liverpool on the 31st either way.

Thanks.

The Clyde gatherings have always been terrific fun, and this adds the special element of a visit on to QV, which I thought would be of interest to those of us who don't manage to cruise, and also to those of us who struggle to get to Southampton!

Even without the QV visit, we'll have a lovely time with the other things we can do and everyone who says they're coming can help us decide exactly what to do.

Hi,

Has been a couple of years since I posted on here due to a change of jobs but I've been an avid watcher!  Please can you put me down for myself and a plus one - now need to decide if to take the wife or my dad!

Due to our proximity to Liverpool I will drive over rather than stay over!

Cheers John
