Thank you for this -  it's in Good Order too!

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for what seemed like ages...Please don't leave her looking more like a Hotel-with-a-Hull than the greatest Liner afloat - Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Great list! And it looks amazingly easy to fill each and every one of the letters!

Here are a few more :

A : Afternoon Tea
C : Computer Learning Centre
D : Dance classes
P : Princess Grill, Penthouses
S : Swimming Pool, Shore Excursions

and one of the oddest of them all : E for Enrichment Lectures!

Plenty more coming no doubt -- this will be a great collection!

- thanks for adding to the alphabet list.  I remembered about the Princess Grill after I had posted the list. I had not thought about the others though and you are correct, there will probably be some more.

Some things I miss:

Bit beneath the Bridge
Cocktails in the Crystal Bar
Dressing for dinner
Friends that I met onboard
Grand Lounge shows
Jogging round deck
Library - what a lovely place to relax
Midship lobby harpist welcoming you back onboard
Photos on formal nights
Sound of the sea
Teak decks
Walking on deck

I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank
