The following are a selection of
Daily Programmes and other
documents distributed to passengers
about life on QE2. They have been
selected with an eye toward giving
the reader an idea of how life on
board changed over time as well as
on the various types of voyages
done by QE2.
When QE2 was a two-class ship, there were shows each
night in the Queens Room and in the room that is now
the Grand Lounge. However, as the class distinction
evaporated, passengers would just go to whatever show
they desired regardless of their cabin category. In more
recent times, the Queens Room features ballroom
dancing and the shows are in the Grand Lounge.
