My husband and I are taking the transatlantic cruise on the QM2 from Southampton to NYC. It is my "treat" for end of treatments for ovarian cancer. I am cancer free for now (had my last chemo in July) and really looking forward to this trip! My husband and I are cruise ship history buffs, especially the old liners. We have cruised on the Norway, Independence and the newer ships. (By the way, you might want to update your topics list, as American Hawaii Lines do not exist anymore.)

My question for anyone out there is what to wear to the Ascot Ball. I understand hats are involved, but other than that, I don't know what it involves. I also understand that the Ascot Ball is related in some way to the Ascot races in England? Any hints would be appreciated. Is anyone else sailing on the September 24th crossing?

Oregon, USA
