Not particularly revealing about QE2, this one, but shows what some of the adolescent passengers got up to...

This web page was immediately below the QE2 Story forum way up near the top of the Google search page!

Thank you, Isabelle and Rosie, for your posts.

Yes, the majority of people out there think either our QE2 is already a hotel in the East or is currently in remake for same.

Somehow, she has to be let go from her captors.

In response to the October 2016 newsletter article on QE2's Final Season, we have received a message from Martha Hufford to remind us about her website and blog about QE2's final season World Cruise 2008.

We greeted Martha here when she joined the Forum :

They were usually either 5 deck aft, or 5 deck forward midships. The Harpist was not a regular 'carry' so would have been allocated a cabin on an ad hoc basis. Any half decent ex-passenger cabins were eagerly sought after by permanent crew members.

4244, bunk, 20' x20' wardrobe. Which if the door opened while you were out, you had to borrow a broom from the steward to get back in. To access the drawers under the bunk your butt stuck out the front door!
