Queen Mary II Transatlantic Questions

Jump to last reply

The pre-voyage information received from Cunard is, at best IMO, incomplete. After reviewing the documentation, and the very cumbersome website, my sister and I have questions as we prepare for a transatlantic crossing in June.

As background: My sister will have been backpacking with her daughter in Europe for 3 weeks before I meet her in London. We will have 5 days in London before embarking at Southhampton 24 June.

When I fly to the UK I will check one piece of luggage for the cruise and use carry-on for the time in London. The checked luggage will contain additional clothing for my sister.

1. For informal dinners / evenings - is a street length dress with scarf and/or jewelry (think business attire) acceptable? Would nice dress pants (not denims/jeans/khakis) and dressy top be acceptable. Or do we need to be dressier, we are in the Britannia dining room.

2. We are a bit taken back by the "no sandals" after 6 pm requirement and could use some guidance for former cruisers. Does Cunard define sandals as flip-flops or open-toed shoes? I have a pair of Wolky sandals that I had intended to wear as part of my evening dress.

3. For the masquerade, are costumes available onboard or are passengers to bring their own costume. How extensive are the costumes or will a simple mask be acceptable? And on masquerade evening ow "formal" is "formal" dress?

4. Are yoga classes available? I couldn't find a schedule of fitness classes on the website. Maybe I didn't look properly?

We are celebrating milestone birthdays and giving ourselves sister time with the cruise.
Obviously, this is our first cruise and don't desire to find ourselves as "outcast" because we didn't prepare properly. Please send advice / guidance/ and words of wisdom our way.

Many Thanks and happy travels,
