Very interesting article and pictures in Cruise Travel magazine (link below, pages 34-41) about life on board QE2 and some of the areas on board in the 80's, plus some of the deals available at the time from Cunard in the U.S.A. including the combination of QE2, Concorde and staying for a week at the Ritz hotel in London. I had the pleasure of doing the first two, but have only had "Tea" at the Ritz !

I've just spent the last half hour reading through all of your finds Rob, really good reading and bringing back loads of memories for me as two of the features related to my time on board. Thanks
