Title: Queen Elizabeth Round Britain 23 June 2016
Post by: Cunarder Man on May 13, 2016, 07:30 AM
There are a number of QE2 enthusiasts already booked on this cruise. It is highly likely we will be sharing memories, photographs and memories of QE2 whilst on board. Has anyone else booked?

Nope! But can maybe say hello in Greenock!

Yup! My wife and I will be on board for that cruise - and very much looking forward to it.
Maybe I'll nip down the road when we get in to Greenock to cut the grass . . . then again . . . .  :P

Plans for Liverpool and celebrating the 100th anniversary if the Cunard Building coming together nicely including two concerts on the Pier Head in front of CB open to everyone - one in afternoon at time tbc and one at 2130 leading up the fireworks (including a very special one) and departure of ship.

0700 - ship arrival. A surprise in store here
1100 - Service of Celebration at St Nicks]
Concerts and Fireworks
1730 - Reception and Dinner on ship for VIPs
Passenger Dinner that night will have Commemorative Menu

Aye - we'll be there too! Looking forward to Absolutely Everything...
ooops - gone back to Scottish v early ancester / Granny's roots...and planning Good Walks, and just a few very special Sea Days, a day full of Tender-rides off Guernsey , 50yrs wed'g stuff, and the possibilities of having The QE2 Get Together on board!!

Rob - It will be Very Good to See You!

The Cunard Building Day sounds excellent - A Special Thank You to you, Michael
Then there's My Liverpool Home bit and The Leaving of Liverpool too - Can't Wait!
("Not many know"(!) that during and after WW2, and before Cook St was pulled down, the Cunard Building, St Nick's, the Mersey Mission and Cathedral were all part of My Liverpool home!)

Hope you enjoy the cruise it sounds really interesting, especially as I like the round Britain cruises.  But unfortunately as we have a River cruise booked for July we cannot go on the QE in June.  We will think about going to Greenock or Liverpool to see the ship, that would be the next best, and we can envy all you lucky people onboard.

Oh Lynda - Please, Please Do come!
(Sssh - There's a great saver fare offer on! and the itinerary's not bad either!)
It would be a bit of a getaway-from-it-all - and very good to see you :)
