Where I stayed
Down at the docks we had to pass through security similar to airports and had to wait in a lounge before we could board. No upgrades this time because the cruise is fully booked!!
Our luggage was waiting in our cabin so we were able to unpack immediately. We have a lovely big room with 2 portholes and, of course, a lovely bottle of champagne waiting for us. After unpacking we went to the Purser's Office to buy some stamps for postcards, which QE2 will post
We went out for the sail away, but it was raining and miserable - after watching the tug "Madeline"pull us out from the wharf (1/2 hour late because of some late arriving passengers) we wandered back to our cabin. After a quick nap we changed for dinner, which was wonderful!!! Smoked Trout mousse, milk-fed veal and lemon sorbet - delicious!!!
