 Did you know almost 70 % of the crew were transfered from the Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 to be part of the new Queen Elizabeth’s crew. A great way to continue the Cunard tradition of impeccable service to passengers.

    Thank you so much for your contribution to this beautiful ship (I personally am still very much in love with the interior of the Queen Victoria….) :-)The only thing that disturbes the nice view of the ship is the "Epic-like" front top.. :-/ we call it "it has aerodynamic values of a fridge now"…Well, in 2011 the Queen Mary 2 will be "tested thoroughly" (24 nights) and maybe another cruise then with the QE. Whatever route might suite us then… :-)All the best and keep on posting 🙂
