Queen Elizabeth 2 Part of the World Cruise Disembarked in Cape Town We travelled on the 03rd January 2019 on the first leg of her World Cruise to Cape Town, South Africa. We arrived at the Port at 11.05am, which was virtually empty, and the staff were only too pleased to see us because we gave them some work to do. We boarded and were sitting in the Golden Lion Pub at 11.35am ordering our lunch while we waited for our Stateroom to be ready. Our luggage came within 30 minutes of us entering our Stateroom, so all in all it was the best check in ever. The cleanliness of our Stateroom and the efficiency of our stateroom attendant was 100%. The only thing I would say that periodically we experienced for the first time, the vibration of the ship, which did not affect us. We had a very nice table in the centre given to us in the Britannia Restaurant for dining in the evening. Two very good waiters assigned to our table that gave us excellent service. The food varied but generally was acceptable. There were some very good lectures but the two that appealed to me most were given by Dickie Arbtiter on the English Royal Family. We only had three ports of call namely Vigo in Spain, Funchal in Madeira and Walvis Bay in Namibia. We did a tour in Namibia and went to Swakopmund and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Very interesting and the local people were very welcoming. The theatre in the evenings generally was acceptable with the exception of Bruce Morrison who was outstanding. Such a talented individual. A very nice crowd of people on the ship. It was all so relaxing and pleasant. Unfortunately, our 16 nights came to an end so quickly and we disembarked in Cape Town to start our adventure there.
