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!

Ships are having a Shuffle!

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

Anyone who is a fan of P&O cruises will recall the Adonia, the smallest ship in the fleet, left the company last year and was relocated to Miami to embark on a new venture fathom. From here she sailed to Dominican Republic where passengers helped with volunteer work like teaching English. There has now been a u-turn on this and Carnival Corporation has decided to return the ship to P&O. Adonia will be sailing from the UK again from June 2017 after she has had some upgrades including O...
