Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, July 15, 2014: Deck Chairs Aboard QM2

Your photo reminds me of a cruise we just did a few months ago in the Chilean fjordland. When we approached cape Horn, famous for its stormy seas, we were in constant winds of 100 knots, with gusts of 160 knots. The deck was even emptier than your photo above would indicate! Nice photos, Islandman. Thanks for taking all of us aboard the Queen Mary.

This looks like a fantastic trip and any reason to go by train is good one to me. Wondering if the place names (Adelaide, Alice, Katherine) recall days of too few settler women for the number of men?

When I saw this, I coudn't help but think of think of a teen who used to post on Frommers about luxury travel. I'll bet he'd love to stay at one of these rooms. I'm wondering also if some in the middle class aren't choosing to stay at lower end places and save their travel budget?

I have to say that although I could afford to go up a bit, I always look first at the low-end because while the rooms tend to be small, they have the needed facilities, and are more likely to have the wifi and breakfast free. Why pay more; it looks the same in the dark. Different for a resort, I guess... Never been unhappy with an Ibis in Europe, or the Motel 6/Super 8/Comfort Inn type here. I'd rather spend the difference on good food...

Let them eat cake! $75G is enough to pay for the vacations many people take in an entire lifetime -- not just one night.
