Family First Timers

Jump to last reply

At the end of August we have booked a cruise on board the QM2 for myself, hubby and two daughters aged 16 and 12. We travel to New York from Southampton and will be staying in New York for three nights. We booked one of the last two remaining family rooms on level 6 and I am worried as to how much space this will give us. We would have liked to have purchased an outside cabin but only the inside was available. What would be the best way to ask for an up grade if at all possible.

As we have never been on a cruise before we are a little nervous as to what to expect. We have managed to get our heads around the on board dress code and have been spoiling ourselves shopping for the formal evenings.

However we do have some questions which I hope you may be able to answer. We do not mind tipping but are reluctant to do so with 4 family members on board. Are we expected to tip on behalf of all four family members, or is it just the adult members who will be charged the daily tipping amount. Could we ask for this deduction not to be made, and just tip people accordingly whilst onboard.

Does anyone know any bar prices, we are trying to calculate how much money we are going to need for the six nights voyage. Can alchol be brought on board by ourselves.

Which are the best areas of the ship to enjoy on an evening with our children.

Any other information would be wonderull for us First Timers !

Many thanks
