One would hope for your sake that the one and only norman sponge does not read your question, ! or i can see hthe headlines now
"SPONGE DROWNS AT SEA " when he pushes you overboard ! come on except some blame , he does not need to be boring if you have some imput into his life and yours , then make it exciting , you are going on a great ship , relive some memories put a spark into your life with some romance whatever but dont be a WET SPONGE .
How could anyone with an enigmatic name like Norman Sponge be boring, I can't believe it. If, as you say, you would like to share a table with even more magnetism I would suggest that you have a word with the Maitre d' in whichever restaurant you have been allocated (and if it's desperate slip him a tenner). You might also remember that there are other areas and activities on the QM2 where your aims might equally be achieved. Good Luck. .....Neil.
Hope he gets into the taxi to the ship and leaves you standing there leaving him to enjoy himself for the first time in his married life.
I know of two recent Canadian reviewers on this site who would be right up Norman's street, and maybe yours as well.
I always remind my Husband, before we leave home that I am packing a smart black suit and a little black hat with a veil and that I shall make a very fetching widow! I find he ups his entertainment value and becomes significantly less boring by the simple adoption of this policy. (Talking of "policies" you may also find it advantageous to ascertain that he is well insured!!!)Remember to rehearse WHISPERING "man overboard" also!Cynthia.
My husband and I cruised on QM2 in January, out of NeW York to the carribean for 10 nights. It was a
very good cruise experience and formal dress nights are only on days at sea. However men need to
wear jacket and tie on other nights and the dress code does not allow for very informal clothing such as shorts .Usually you can choose a table for dinner at night as in a table for 2,4,6,8 etc and its sure fire way of meeting and chatting with other guests Its a shame your husband is boring, he must be gutted to know thats what you think of him
and if I was him I'd pack you off to a club 18 resort and take the cruise on his own where I am sure
he would find someone to talk with who is on the same wave length, and if you play your cards right
I'll bet you could find a spanish toy boy for the duration of your holiday and forget all about him. It
might just be the start of something big!
