Cunard Cruise 2012
Trip Day 37
Thursday, April 26th
At Sea
Cruising the Atlantic, Ocean


The cruise is now on its final day heading for the ships home port of Southampton, England which the ship left 106 days ago on this cruise.



It appears the there are no further time changes as England 5 hours ahead of home and is in what is known as Greenwich Mean Time or GMT. and appears to be the same as Lisbon. By the time I get there they will be on BST which stands for British Summer Time which, as in most places, one gains an hour for "summer (or daylight) time" (as we do) so the difference will still be 5 hours from home but one hour later than GMT or the proper name Coordinated Universal Time which is usually shorted to UT.

Needless to say there are no further shore excursions on this cruise because the next "shore" is the end of the cruise.

So, this is the plan for this, the final day, of the cruise.

From here on packing for the return home will likely take up most of the time. If the disembarkation briefing was not held yesterday then it likely will be today. The Queen Mary 2 also arrives back in Southampton tomorrow morning from its partial world cruise which likely adds several thousand more people to the normal somewhat confusing mix of events that happens that day there.

Luggage will likely need to put out tonight for the disembarkation to happen tomorrow.
