Round 3: General Cruising Knowledge

  1. Queen Mary 2 during a transatlantic crossing in 2017 from Southampton to NY. He soundproofed a cabin and only came out to eat- but apparently was only allowed in the buffet as he only brought jeans and trainers!
  2. The American Steamboat Company’s ship, American Queen
  3. A bottle of champagne. Exceptions in the past have included non-alcoholic versions in Muslim countries and during the American prohibition era, as well as the Queen notably smashing a bottle of whiskey on the new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth in 2014
  4. When looking forward when onboard a ship, port and starboard refer to the left and right sides respectively. The easy way to remember is both ‘port’ and ‘left’ have 4 letters.
  5. Princess Cays. Situated in the Bahamas and exclusively for Princess guests on Caribbean itineraries, with 40 square acres and with half a mile of white sandy beaches, here you can enjoy such varied activities as snorkelling, dune buggying, kayaking and, of course, lounging on the beach
