Ugh I love food.. Can’t want to see the food! (Side note, has anyone tried poutine?)

Classic question actually heard several times...."What time is the Midnight buffet????"

Along with..."Do the crew live on the ship?"  etc

Same holds true for some American resorts that hold special event weekends and have a "Midnight Buffet" on Saturday night.

The theme for the October Photo Competition has to do with food, and food on QE2 !  There must be many wonderful photos of the gastronomic delights on QE2 !  Please look through your photos and upload your three favorites for entry in the competition.   :)

If you are having any problems uploading your photos, please contact us at admin@theqe2story.com and we will be more than glad to help out.   :)

We are more than half way through the month, and we only have a few photographs for this month's photo competition.  Coming off of the conference, it must be a bit difficult to focus on anything else.  But there was so much awesome food and spectacular displays on QE2, please take a moment and look through your photos and post three of your favorites in the gallery for the October photo competition.  :)

Thanks for the reminder June.  I have added two photo and will see if I can find a third.
