That is a disaster waiting to happen!!! Just like the A380-that will one big bang when it does happen
(sorry to sound gloomy-but that's life)-- Just sleep on the deck is my advice.
Maffy please don't say that we are on A380s in June

I do of course wish EVERYONE safe and happy trips, holidays and adventures

simply stating the bleedin'obvious, sorry it's what I do for a living so to speak (no, not crash planes or sink ships)

My son builds the wings on the A380 so I know thay are good.

Gone and done it. Booked Queen Mary 2, Queens Grill, NY to Southampton for June 2020. Never done the boat thing before apart from a schools cruise many moons ago. Any good tips from previous QM2 passengers are most welcome. Like, what’s best way to get back to my car at Heathrow after getting off the boat in Southampton, I was thinking hire car and dropping it off at T5.

Early flight so don’t want to be driving 3 hours then be at airport, as you have to be, 2 hours before check in. That’s why I like to stay overnight locally before going cos it saves getting up in the middle of the night and making a long day even longer. Reckon it’ll be hire car on return.

You could enquire if they are doing excursions from Southampton for the Americans there will be but unsure as to the destinations being of any help to you the cruise company will be able to advise you on this loads of other options ie one way hire cab or coach we are cruising in October from Southampton to The Canaries when we sail out rather than fly we use the car park right next to the ship its such a nice way to holiday no hassle never cruised on the QM2 but im sure you'll enjoy "Anchors Away" LOL.....
