Back in the 90s I was sailing in QE2. Just before departure Southampton ... having a couple of drinks at Midship's Bar. The bar tender was about 60s. An American lady, also about 60, sat at the bar. She ordered a drink and the bar tender was definitely, chatting up the bird'! She finished her drink, opened her bag and gave her cabin key to the bar tender. I couldn't believe. That must have been fastest 'pick up' ever... even on board QE2! The next day she was in the Midship's Bar and sat next to me. The bartender, John Barnett, said to me, "Stephen, have you met my wife Sandra?" Ahhhhhh! John had been in the QE2 many years. He and his wife had met in QE2 long before and they live in Pennsylvania. Sandra would book a voyage in the ship and with Hotel Manager's permission, John was allowed to live in a passenger accommodation. For many years we exchanged Xmas cards. Lovely people.

Oh... the two twins Jamie & John Luke, One was Hotel Manager and the other was Purser.
