QE2 on St Valentine's Day

Tonight QE2 is joined by Costa Classica and Costa Victoria.

I was aboard for Valentines Day in 2002 - the Queens Room was decorated in pink and each passenger was given a glow in the dark heart. That night, at 12:01am, we sailed from Sydney.

I cannot let the day pass without raising my glass to our Valentine here!

Does anyone else have memories of being on board for St Valentine's Day? What was it like? I'd love to know...  ;D

Nice one, Myles!

Were you on board? What was it like on board on St Valentine's Day?

BTW, in 2008, she was in Tahiti :)  .
Being that time of year, she would have been on her World Cruise almost every year, in various exotic locations...

Absolutely beautiful menu card!

The food itself... interesting to see how the menu changed between those days and the more recent QE2 menus.

I would take :

the salmon and capers
the turbot
and a vanila ice cream with hot apricot sauce!

It is the hot apricot sauce that caught my eye immediately :) ...

I wonder whether today brought out any special memories of QE2 on St Valentine's Day? Sadly, I was never on board at this time of year...
