I'm starting this thread in case you missed our conversation in the "I'm Back" thread.

If you think you might be interested in sailing on Queen Mary 2 from July 2 to July 8, 2008 please join us here.

Be advised it is rare for Cunard to offer group space on these short cruises but, that can't prevent them from us forming our own Cruise Freek Forums Group. We just have to pay full fare and we won't have amenities points but, I don't think that will be a big deal for most of us.

The sailing schedule looks like this:

July 2008

2 Wed New York, New York Depart 5:00 pm
3 Thu Cruising the Atlantic Ocean
4 Fri Boston, Massachusetts 8:00 am - 10:00 pm
5 Sat Bar Harbor, Maine 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
6 Sun Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
7 Mon Cruising the Atlantic Ocean
8 Tue New York, New York Disembark

You can count us as "maybe", just a matter of scheduling.

I just checked in my system and Cunard will not allow official group space to be offered for this sailing. However, if you need help organizing it (You can all still be cross-referenced for dining purposes etc) please let me know.

I'm happy I signed in, we were just talking about this sailing! Do we have a group here yet?

Lady Jane,

There isn't group inventory available at this point ... but my host/consortium does have SOME group space blocked ... I don't have exclusive access to it, so I cannot guarantee how long the space will be available for booking.

Now this IS a thought... I was on the fence about what I wanted to do for the 4th of July next year and QM2 for a 6 night cruise does sound appealing. I'll get back to you on this as soon as I can get approval for vacation for those dates.

Wow, I guess there is a little more than a bit of interest here. That's great. Now why can't things be this simple on CC? If it was, they wouldn't be losing people left and right!

Glad to see Susan could save the day for group space! Hopefully, you will be able to hold onto it long enough to get the group formed. They must have asked for it early because when I asked they were not allowing any more group space to be held.

I believe I'll be in the States that week but, won't know for sure until after the holidays. If I am, I'd love to go, sounds like a great mini-vacation!

The group space is gone now - don't know if they filled it, but I presume they wouldn't have cancelled it (they'd be nuts to do that), of course there's always the possibility that Cunard recalled the unbooked space. Dunno.

Very strange, I was in CruiseCompete just browsing around and noticed that the July 2, 2008 sailing is "missing" - think it's gone to charter?

Actually, I do know Pied Piper has a group and if the response was large enough, maybe they did go for the charter for this sailing. It will be interesting to see if it reappears or not...

mike,

don't think so - it still appears in the TA booking engine as available to book individually.
