Life On Board The QM2

We've been at sea for a couple of days now. Conditions are very rough with high winds and 20 foot swells. JIm got up at 4 AM Monday morning to request motion sickness pills from the ship as a caution to prevent getting motion sickness. The captain advised us that these coditions would be with us for several days, but that the ship is built to allow for comfortable cruising even with the noticeable rocking and rolling. We've been enjoying meeting new friends who are travelling with us as members of our Pied Piper contingent. The food on board is very good if not spectacular. There are constantly things going on to do, from lectures to films and other activities. Monday afternoon we attended a lecture by a man who wrote a book about the actress Vivien Leigh. Today we will attend a show in the ship's planaterium, a unique feature on this ship. The aship itself is quite beautiful and reminds onbe of the classic ocean liners you see in films. Dress code in the evening is semi-formal or formal with jackets required for men every night for those wishing to dine on the main dining room. Sunday night was semi-formal when this photo was taken. Monday night was the first of three formal evenings.
