CUNARD QUEEN ELIZABETH CRUISE BLOG DAY 3
Well Hello Again!
This morning I decided to have breakfast in the Brittania Club Restaurant which was lovely. Fresh Orange and Green Melon for starters followed by two fluffy pancakes drizzled with a serving on Maple Syrup.
After breakfast, I headed up to the Zone on Deck 10 Midship to play a game of Scattegories. Sadly a lot of us got the same answers!
The good news is that from midday today we are now on Yellow Level so we can finally serve our own food! (Yay!)
So I am currently sitting in the Lido at the moment with a glass of fresh lemonade. I will probably end up going to get some food shortly then it is back to the Zone at 3pm for the photo hunt (more will be revealed later) but for now, here is our current navigational information.
At 1pm today, we will exit the Bay of Biscay and will be able to see the coast of Portugal. The weather is clear with a chance of a few showers this evening with temperatures reaching up to 21 degrees.
We are due to arrive at the Alcantara Berth next to the 25th April Bridge in Lisbon tomorrow morning at 0800 before departing at 1700 for Tenerife where we arrive on Easter Sunday.
I will be back tonight with more of my second day at sea aboard Queen Lizzie!
As I said previously, we are now on Yellow Level so I decided to take lunch in the Lido Buffet. There is simply so much choice from Freshly made Sandwiches and Panini’s, Fresh cuts of meat, Pizza’s, Pasta’s, Burger’s and so much more! I had a chicken and lettuce panini followed by a slice of Black Forest Gateaux (Yum!)
After Lunch, it was back to the youth club where I was talking to the youth manager Paul about working aboard a cruise ship. He said that it is a great lifestyle, but very hard work and discipline is key. He added that he wished that more people knew that Cunard IS a family friendly cruise line with engaging activities for children from ages 3-17.
It was then coming up for 3pm so I revisited the lido for a quick drink before returning to the youth club for the photo hunt. The objective was to take as many photos of the old people who had no dress sense whatsoever. The winner was decided later, but as I had to prepare for the Captains Cocktail Reception, I do not know the result.
The reception was held in the Queens Room at 1845 for Brittania Club, Princess & Queens Grill Occupants. We were introduced to all the major members of staff and had a drinks toast. (Either Orange Juice, Champagne or Bucks Fizz)
After the reception, I headed into dinner at the Brittania Club restaurant and the meal once again was very tasty. Scott has been emailing me saying that all this talk of food is making him hungry so I am giving him a little break from talking about the food!
Now there are two outdoor pools aboard the Queen Elizabeth located on Deck 9 either Midship or Aft. There is also an indoor hydropool again on Deck 9 which is located in the forward section inside the Cunard Royal Spa and Fitness Centre. This requires a surcharge.
After dinner it was back to the Golden Lion for the ever entertaining pub quiz.
I will be back tomorrow with more updates from my voyage aboard QE. We will be in the port of Lisbon tomorrow, our first port of call.
See you soon!
