We looked forward to this cruise as it marked my retirement and my wife’s birthday, we had had to save for this one and had handed over our hard earned cash with pleasure we loved being cosseted by Cunard’s attentive staff. This would be the 12th or so cruise and our second 28 night cruise with them. So we knew what to expect. Lovely.
We joined the QM2 as scheduled following a Covid test each. The ship looked great the welcome was great and nice to see some old faces. We sailed on time and we both remarked how good it was to be on board again.
Due to Covid 19 the rules on the ship had unsurprisingly changed. Even the muster to stations had changed, now just a walk through your muster station and a continuous video on the cabin TV on how to fit a floatation device, we did not even hear the ships hooters as before.
