WaveyDavey, QE2 Engineering Officer, 2003-2008
« on: Nov 01, 2009, 04:14 PM »
Having moved to Cape Town a couple of years ago as I married a South African.

I left Cunard about a year ago having worked for them as EO for just over five years; more or less evenly split between QE2 and QM2 - as a senior officer I did get to know rather a lot about them.

How would you feel if QE2 had turned up in South Africa ?  Would you have gone to visit?

Hello and Welcome!

It's great that you have joined us - hope that you'll enjoy having a bit of a look around...
Perhaps  you'll soon realise too,
that any contributions you might make will be read with genuine appreciation :)
(Hope it won't seem like another of those 'cocktail parties', ;)  !)

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Hi I have just joined this site. I worked on the QE2 as manageress of Steiner salon from 1979-1980....long timem agao. Best time ever. I now spend about 8 months each year in South Africa, Hillcrest near Durban. I was in CT this year for a short holiday with some friends. Just thought I would make contact.
