Hello to all newsletter recipients.

I hope you are all keeping well at this strange time.  With some of our favourite cruise ships being laid up, sold or even scrapped, it has been rather nice recently to just enjoy some old memories and photos on the forum, and our photo competitions and crew and passenger memories sections are rather good for that. 
One bit of brighter news was the successful return to service of the lovely PS Waverley - we look forward to arranging a forum get together on board her as soon as possible

This newsletter is normally written by Lynda Bradford, however she is unavailable this month, so I'm stepping in to send a shorter and simpler one than normal.  She should be back next month, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for the tremendous hard work she does for the newsletter, our competitions and the forum itself.

Channel 5 (UK) TV Documentary about QE2 Hotel

Nowadays on the forum, we prefer to focus on QE2's history up until her arrival in Dubai, however this month in the UK, one of the main traditional TV channels broadcast a 3-part "fly on the wall" documentary recorded in the QE2 hotel a few months ago, and we couldn't let that pass without mentioning the appearance of a forum member in the programme!

Thomas Hypher travelled to Dubai to take part in the programme, and is featured prominently in episode 3 through a series of "now and then" pieces with footage of him on board as a child compared to how she is today.  The programme is worth a watch, but you might also want your fast-forward button ready for some pieces!

Our topic on this subject stretches back more than 11 years and has lots of amazing and detailed information about it.  A recent post handily groups together all 4 episodes into one post. Enjoy!   Link to the forum topic.
