Royal Mistreatment

March 25, 2001

Regarding: "QE2: All Dolled Up With Places to Go" (Cruise Views, Feb. 25): Please cancel your syndicated "Cruise Views" column and stop payment on = the last check. Freeloaders Shirley Slater and Harry Basch rewrote a Queen = EliElizabeth 2 press release and itinerary.

Our only evidence they'd actually been on board was their discovery that a ship suite is larger than an airline seat. Duh! Had they actually sailed on the dowager, they would have told us the public areas are crowded; the food is average; ; Harrods is a souvenir claptrap; and the entertainment is largely cast from summer stock.

And although our undistinguished stateroom was considerably larger than an airline seat, the QE2's style and graciousness have dropped to the level of its Carnival Cruise Lines brethren.

After my July 4th sailing, I would recommend the QE2 only to the undiscriminating who favor bargain Las Vegas travel packages.

And although our undistinguished stateroom was considerably larger than an airline seat, the QE2's style and graciousness have dropped to the level of its other Carnival Cruise Lines brethren.
