Thanks for the Link, Jerry.

I see, in the pictures, all the apparatus that will be used to keep me and Jason from "Floating off on Cloud 9".

Now it's:
1. 108 days 'til January 12th: Maiden Voyage;
2. 199 days 'til April 12th: Return to Southampton;
3. 203 days 'til April 16th: Maiden Southampton to New York Voyage; and
4. 212 days 'til April 25th: Return Trip to Southampton, accompanied by the QE2;.

And, yes, I have "Countdown to April 6th": 193 days until I leave for London. Definitely looking forward to it.

We'll still have to see whether Inger, Phil, Brian, Geoff, et al will be out along the docks in Southampton, watching the ship take off, and cheering her return.

Anyone here planning to sail the upcoming Queen Victoria on her maiden voyage?

Tarn, right now four of us will be on the Queen Mary 2 voyages, though only Jason and I will be on the same one, April 16 - 22nd.

However, we hope to get together with Jim and Jerry in New York, following our excursion.

I don't have any data about the Victoria's schedule, or who might be thinking about being on that ship.

Tarn, On April 25,2004,I will aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2 as on that date both the Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Mary 2 will both sail out of New York to Southampton.Both ships will arrive in Southampton on May 1,2004.And on May 1,2004 I will be aboard the Queen Mary 2 sailing back to New York.Next week on October 7,2003 I will be aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2 on a cruise to Canada and one of the ports of call will be to Halifax so I will go to the cemetery were the Titanic victims are buried.The only thing I know about the next Cunard Ship after Queen Mary 2 named Queen Victoria is that they already started construction on her at a shipyard in Italy and that Queen Victoria's maiden voyage will be in April,2005.If I found out anything else about Queen Victoria I'll let you know. Sincerely,Jerry Nuovo

The QV will be a smaller liner with 1,986 passengers at 83,000 tons.It will have a covered wrap around promenade deck, forward-facing observation lounge and a large Lido pool with a retractable magrodome. 67% of "her" accommodations will feature balconies. No surprise: it "will have a decidedly British flavor."

In the travel section of the Sunday New York Times of September 28,2003 there is an interesting article about the Queen Mary 2.I did want to link it to this website but you have to pay a fee just to be able to read the article. Sincerely,Jerry Nuovo

Hi John,

"I see, in the pictures, all the apparatus that will be used to keep me and Jason from "Floating off on Cloud 9"."

LOL! They should come in handy then!

Hi Tarn,

I'm still interested in sharing a cabin with you on the Queen Victoria.

Best regards,

Jason
