The QE2 Story on board QE2
« on: Jul 02, 2012, 01:14 PM »
The possibility of a QE2 get together on board the great vessel now seems a little closer, albeit in a few years time. I'm up for it, anyone else? List started!  :)

Count me in, too!
Can't wait - having never seen the PG bar,
it'll mean that my last ambition (ever!) can be be accomplished!

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.

I'll be there!

I look forward to sharing a drink in the Chart Room with QE2 friends who I have never been aboard QE2 with.

January 2014 might be a date to aim for... or we could link it to the date that QM2 will be in port during her 2014 WC.

Fingers crossed it comes true this time...

Good thinking, Cunarder Man - nothing like the Scouting Motto, 'Be Prepared', is there?!
Given that there are Very Nearly 900 members on the Forum,
maybe we could make a few alternative enquiries - like chartering a wee ship....  :)
There's Saga Ruby, or the Adonia even - and although PS Waverley was steady as a rock in the rough water last weekend, she might struggle a bit between bunker stations!  I'd even travel out in a tug, or a barge!
Otherwise if push came to shove - after a flight on the classy Emirates Airlines out, QM2 could bring us home - she was charging £40 pn to the pax joining the end of the Worldie in 2011, and it's guaranteed that TQS Members would comply with, and respect the Cunard Code of Conduct even more effectively that the pax did who joined 15 mths ago!

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.

Experience shows otherwise, Myles.
As far as atmosphere on board, team spirit and all other things that have been good in the distant past, 
our 17 nights on board Queen Victoria in April were about as close to being on board QE2 as we've experienced yet :)
Why not try her and see?!

I'm in but must qualify my statement with a hint of "it may take a while".  1/2 way around the world to Dubai is no easy task.  Well worth it but no easy task.
