IN CASE you think a trip across the Atlantic on QE2 is bound to be miles beyond your normal budgeting plans, you may want to think again. You can actually travel across the ocean on this queen of the seas completely free, and in a moment I'll tell you how.
Consider meanwhile some of the unique features offered by the QE2 which make it a ship on which everyone aspires to sail at least once. It is undoubtedly the greatest passenger ship currently
afloat, and to travel on her is to enjoy u quite sensationally different "lit'e-style" for the five days involved. This is a memorable holiday in itself, It is far more exciting than the average five star hotel, being a world in itself with every normal holiday taste catered for. And in 1982 there are outstanding bargains in the way of combined fares which are worth considering before you discard the whole idea as preposterous.
If you sail to New York on certain dates and then choose a corresponding date to sail back, you return home for nothing. There is also a tempting air/sea alternative offer with financial bonuses if you are travelling alone. If, however, you can take your wife as well, you can both fly home free. This is the equivalent of a two • for the price of one Atlantic crossing.
Before making any other final decisions consult your travel agent or ring Cunard at 01-491 3930. And don't forget and that no one can ever remember a crossing by QE2 when there has not been at least one Catholic priest on board. Usually there are. several, and Masses are available at convenient times on both Sundays and weekdays.
The steward on the old Queen Mary who, for many years took care of such arrangements, was known as 'the bishop'.
