I didn’t finish the piece on Lisbon. It somehow published itself. As I said, we sent Kim off on a tour. She liked the sound of the Duck which looks strange and apparently was strange. I’ve never been in one and nor had Kim. It took her on a land tour of the City and then down the hill and into the River Tagus, whereupon the bus became a boat!

Queen Elizabeth sailed at 5.00pm and we had a gentle trip down the River Tagus beginning our 2 day voyage home.

The show in the Royal Court Theatre on Thursday evening was a Beatles replica band. They were very good and are appearing again on the final evening.

During sea days we have 2 or 3 speakers who give 45 minute presentations in the theatre. Some are ‘celebrity’ speakers and on this voyage Nicki Chapman fits into that category. She has given 2 talks – the first described her initial career in the music business, promoting singers and bands, then as a Judge on musical talent shows and the second talk dealt with her career as a presenter – Wanted Down Under, Escape to the Country and many more. Her presentations were very good.

  1. Glad you are back cruising again! We are following your voyage with interest & glad you are having a good time! We are hoping to sail on the QM2 on the 11th February short voyage to Hamburg – all being well!
    Hope you both enjoy the rest of your cruise!

  2. Hello Fiona. Good to hear from you. We have friends on QM2 at the moment in the Caribbean. They are having a great time (unlike those on the earlier Caribbean voyage). I guess they will disembark as you embark! Enjoy it. Richard.
