Multimedia & CD-ROM Room.
« on: Oct 13, 2010, 11:44 AM »
I wonder if anyone recalls the CD-ROM / Multimedia room?

It was added during the 1994 refit as a small room off the Book Shop, forward.

It operated as a CD-ROM Library for a few years and then became a storeroom, however the "Multimedia" sign was never removed from the wall above the entry.

My sister and I used it during the 1995 World Cruise when we were aboard, CD ROM was so "cool" back then!

Does anyone else recall it?

No I never used it, but I did see the sign and wonder!

Yes I remember the joys of multimedia in the mid 90s - CD-ROM! - but not, for me, on board QE2.

I do remember it and even have a similar photo showing it, but it never crossed my mind to look inside or wonder what it's original use might be.
