A couple of years ago, on the Concorde forum, a "virtual seat plan" was created by everyone saying which seat(s) they had flown in on Concorde, and when, the aim being to see what the "spread" was and which were the most popular seats.

I suggest we could easily do the same on here by listing which cabins we have sailed on QE2 in, and when.

I'll kick off with mine:

Cabin 5050, Southampton 1st September 2002 - Civitavecchia 7th September 2002.

I don't see why not. :)

It would probably be a good idea to indicate the crew as such, like you have done, though - and maybe only list voyage details ( in the format I have done with mine ) for passengers as, obviously, the crew will have sailed to a huge number of destinations.  Perhaps state the dates of service for the crew, though?

What will be really interesting would be if anyone has not just had the same cabin as someone else, but if it was on a consecutive voyage as well; coincidences like that make good reading don't they? :)



PS Rob, that's fine - I only stuck it in there first instead of here because of the word "virtual"

I was thinking how to do this on a website, I could be a web form that logs everyone's responses in a database table, that's pretty easy.

But I'm trying to work out in my head how we could present that graphically, like as a virtual cabin plan.  I'll give it some more thought.................

That would be lovely, Richard - I'm not sure but the virtual Concorde seating plan might still be on that forum, which would show how it was done then.

The only tricky thing really is going to be how to show it clearly when the same cabin is in play more than once.

Probably some sort of colour coding would work.  You'd just do a group by and count in the SQL query.

Do you have a link to the Concorde one?

Hi Richard and Peter - and all!
 
Just a couple of thoughts and as you know, I know nowt about doing anything on a computer, so what follows could be rubbish!

Is this any use?
http://www.ba97.com/ba97/concorde_seatplan.htm

or this?!!
http://www.cunard.co.uk/QEliz2_2007_Flash/deckplans.html

alternatively
Might it be an idea to convert a theatre seating plan
as in each row = a deck, each seat, equivalent to a cabin?
http://www.londontheatre.co.uk/londontheatre/seatingplans/olivier.htm


alternatively
Richard - might it be possible to just do a series of doors along alleyways, as on your wonderful site, and each of us could insert our names, as on a label, some doors may have more names than others?

I've been asking on the Concorde forum; it appears the thing was lost when the host was subject to a hack attack a few years ago, so I'm afraid I can't show you how it was done then - unless anyone who still posts there saved a copy, but I won't hold my breath.

Maybe we should collect the information first then we can see what we can do with it??

I guess we'd need persons name, cabin number, date/year - what else?

Now that we have over 640 QE2 fans. It would be good to find out how many of the "members" have travelled onboard the QE2 and which stateroom did you occupy.

I was on deck 2 with Stateroom number 2009 at the front of the ship.   July 2008.

Where were you?    It would be good to see a complete list and to discover if anyone had the same stateroom.

Waverely,
 Unless you know something l dont l havent had 4003, l have been entertained in 4003 but l doubt that counts, and  best if l leave that subject there. 4123 was my last  and of course 4028 my very first cabin. Long after the last views on NY faded in the distance or the storms on the high seas, its my first view of 4028 that is locked in the memory box.
 3006 l have had twice and loved it, as for the rest of the voyages l cant remember off the top of my head, the highest l got was One deck and the lowest was Five deck, but if you give me some time l will come back with the various numbers

Might it be an idea if we could add a photo to the cabin number with details of the grade etc and any cabin comments, or is this going to complicate matters and make for a very long thread.

OK, this one is really going to throw a spanner in the works of the numbering system(and who better to throw the spanner than an engineer!)

In July 2008 my wife and I had Stateroom B2 (the foremost cabin on the Boat Deck, Port Side), but to fit in with the requirement that all suites must have 4 digits, we had to tell everyone we were in 9996. What we actually had was one of the Third Officer's cabins (after we had kicked him out down to a dog kennel on 5 Deck - parental privileges!).

Myles, Did you prefer it with the curtain "Fake porthole" or without?

This is very like the cabin my Dad had to use in April 1987, splitting our family group up, after all the cabins on 5-deck were flooded.

Well to be honest l didnt care for the art work in the last photo. But l did like having the curtain on the wall it gave me the impression that there could be a porthole behind there, But it did tend to make the cabin look a bit small, (heck it was small enough anyway) but everything and its location had been clearly thought out. And something l took for granted was that l had plenty of storage space and all the clothes could be hung in the wardrobe and the suitcases would fit under the bed. The pull out writting top was a great addition But all it lacked was a stool to sit on or perhaps a chair. In saying that anytime l did have a chair in  my cabin it was in the way and was used for putting stuff on. The full length mirror was a great touch as well. In fact everything about the cabins semed to have been well thought out.
 Early on during the start of each cruise  l used to have a good look round my cabin, puling out all the drawers, examining the wardrobe, under the bed, in the bathroom and each cabin had its own quirks
 3006 l found seemed to excell in the quirks department, so much so l had it twice.

The only one I can remember that cabin 1019, Princess Grill P1 grade. Was an awesome cabin.....

No the crew cabins on Six Deck were all 4 digits starting with 6001 all the way forward to 6100ish aft.

The cabins on 3,4 and 5 have 3 digits and easy to find, for example cabin numbers between 01 to 30 (if i still recall) are forward cabins 31 to 99 are aft.

24 years ago on Monday coming, my parents and I were meant to be in 5097, but we couldn't because 5 deck was very flooded - so we were in 4174 instead.  Has anyone stayed in either of these rooms, and/or have photos of them?

My dad was put in Cunard's senior engineer's cabin in an inside on 3 deck above, but sadly I can't remember the number.

Thanks.

There is a very good deck plan here for anyone wanting to jog their memory.

http://www.deluxecruises.com/cunard/cunard_information/qe2_deck_plans_and_categories_queens_grill.htm

My first cabin in 1978 was 5014 which I used for a couple of years. I was assigned cabin 5038 in around 1980/81, and I finished my time aboard in 5004 which was great as it had a porthole. I was in there from April 81 till may 82.

 In the good old days the deluxe cruises site was a bible on early booking day, or for that matter anytime you were checking out cabins, When your Travel agent called it was to hand for the single grades it was either size or location that mattered...

For the last couple of months I have had a idea spinning around in my head, and with most of this type of ideas I keep them there for a long time, until I have worked out a lot of the smaller details. What I have in mind is a online web-app, originally I was planning it for to use with the ss Rotterdam, but I would also like to make a QE2 version, the QE2 version will be made first. That is something that I already have decided on doing.


The central idea is that it will be possible to keep track on which voyage a passenger was in which cabin, with that information it will be possible to do a lot of cool things, for example it would also be possible to create a page that displays on which particular voyage, which cabins were occupied. Of which person stayed in which cabin during the service life of the ship.


Other features would be the upload photos, for the specific cabin, given a impression of the cabin through the years. I also have some more ideas spinning around in my head, but I would like to implement those later (working on to much stuff right from the beginning makes coding always a big mess, working with smaller stories is always better).


Is there any form of intrest into this? I know that it would be impossible to have everybody in every single cabin, but I do hope that we can come close.


If we go ahead with this, are there any programmers in the QE2 community willing to help? It would greatly improve the time it takes to complete the project.


Also, it will take a lot of information gathering, for examples all the cabins will need to be mapped, voyages added(although this can also be done on demand when is needed).


If any of you have a idea that you would like to have integrated, please leave it in a comment, and I will add it to the list, and see if it is feasible in the first version, or added at a later stage.

This is a very ambitious project, Bob! It sounds wonderful, and I wish you every success with it. It would be fabulous if it could be done!

Maybe we could start by continuing here what we started in this topic already, i.e. each of us trying to remember when we were on board and which cabins we occupied at the time. If I put my mind to it and search my files, I should be able to do this for myself (perhaps even for my mother and sister too), but this would be relatively easy as we were only on board half a dozen times or so.

Much more difficult for Myles, who seems to have spent half his life on board!

I would be interested to hear what each of us think we can contribute to this four-dimensional (space and time) project.
