Does Cunard ever let tourists go onboard the QE2 between the voyages? I am planning to go and see her in Souhtampton and I also would like to go on her decks and see her from inside. Is there any way to do this if you can't afford a cruisetitcket?
really in pain here - near total loss of left arm mobility and further problems - so apologies for brevity and no caps. i didn't look to see what jim k wrote in qm2 thread - but i wrote directly to the line about visiting the qe in new york - visiting onboard and presenting the capt. w with a framed color print from a slide in my collection showing qm1 in ny on maiden voyage with his father comm. w in command. given flat no due to terrorism. perhaps this has changed - that was in 2002/3.
I think that the best bet would be to save enough money to take one of the shorter cruises. QM2 offers at least one five day voyage which is within most people's spending limits (basic rate starts at $899 plus port taxes) and QE2 has a European voyage with a base price of $999 for 7 days which is definitely a better deal if one lives in Europe and does not have to pay supplemental air fare.
ERIC: Sorry to hear about your injury, and hope that everything is alright.
