A Carnival Cruise.....With A Chicken?

Before I get fully started I would like to send out my prayers and condolences to the Costa Concordia. I hope everyone gets home safely.

This TR was supposed to have been in Oct of 2011, however those dates were not available to us. So we rescheduled for January 9 2012. We held our breath and 60 days out we were confirmed for those dates.

We finally got to do our packing and at 5:45 am our taxi was outside waiting to take us to the train station. Our train left at 6:40 am and we were due to arrive at the Queen Mary at 4 pm.

This is where we sat all the way to Bakersfield.



It was a very quiet ride until we got to Modesto, then the train got full. Time to put the computer away. We arrived in Bakersfield and took the bus to the Queen Mary. We arrived right on time.

This is the first pic of her when we arrived



We took alot of luggage. Next time I will cut back on the packing.

We checked in, and upon check in we got a free upgrade from an inside room to one with portholes. So YAY! The room was located on the portside of the ship. The rooms were updated. I will post some pics and then explain the bathroom.







cont next post...

The bathrooms are a little odd, the bathtub only uses two of those turning knobs. There is a tradational turn valve for turning it on or off. When you shower, the tub is not very wide. And the water pressure is very low. So when I showered I had to stand side ways to wash my hair. But the toilet has that stick to push to flush it. Hmmm...I thought the flush was more pressure than the shower. I wonder? Do I ? Um no never mind. There is alot of stuff on this ship alone to take pictures of..

So come along the journey and lets explore this beautiful ship and beyond. And if you are prone to seasickness.. get the dramamine... the chicken enters later. Thanks for joining. I will answer all your comments. Ask your questions.

Upnext more pics of the Queen Mary..

Coming along to see more!

So nice to get an upgrade! I'm a bit claustrophobic so an inside cabin would petrify me. And the train ride looks comfy and tech suitable!

DH is looking at cruises for us this spring or next year to Alaska. He refuses Disney but that's okay with me so I am anxious to read and see more about your trip here.

What were the other two knobs in the shower for?

What are the two things on each side and over the bed? One looks stuffed with something?

Those white things are the heating and cooling system. It was interesting.

Sorry for not answering fast enough. I am on the cruise critic watching the threads about the ship tragedy.

Sorry, the two on top do nothing. The bottom two fill the tub. Funny thing is none of the rooms are alike.

Catching up. The QM room looks great; but that bathroom is a little dated. Still, by the sounds of things, it does the job...wash, flush, clean.

I, on the other hand, can use a calculator!

The square root of 7 to the 22nd decimal = 2.6457513110645905905016




Although, I'm sure I answered a similar question about Pi lately.
