Well Mr. Jukes, The Good Mr Burrows said "should" and normally we would agree with the Good Mr Burrows but this has not been a normal year and whilst we hope that will be the case this is not a year for firm prognostication particularly with the Atlantic. As far as what do young forty year olds do who don't dance or play bridge, well.... each morning you will receive a news sheet with all the activities and events on throughout that day and they will range from energetic shuffleboard to absolutely captivating napkin folding and if at the end of the day you say I found nothing of interest then we will all be surprised. So much to do ...so little time and don't forget that you will get five extra hours to fill going that way...... You'll love it .... Ida.
Thanks for your reply Ida it made us smile! I hope we have some people on this cruise with the same sense of humour as you, Ihave started to get the napkin folding to a tee! Once again THANKS. Ian & Christine Jukes.
Dear Ida, I'm afraid that "should" was not mentioned in my answer of 3rd July! This has given me several sleepless nights since, but I am still confident that my forcast for the Jukes QM2 transatlantic crossing on 1st August will come to fruition! Just five days before this epic cruise and the weather is as predicted. I only hope that it has not peaked too soon! Just on the off chance that this does prove to be the case, here is link to a photo of what the Jukes can expect! /imagepopup.php?src=/images/gallery_upload/0000QE2+2008+045.jpg.jpg. Happy cruising.
