This room found its place on Quarter Deck Portside FWD of the Library.Over the years apart from a few cosmectics changes the room stayed pretty much the same.

Is this room most probably was the first ever meeting held on the QE2 when in 1968 the ship sailed to the Canaries on its shakedown cruise.Problems occured in the Turbine Room causing the ship to arrive late in Las Palmas.Sir Basil Smallpiece-then Chairman of Cunard flow out from the UK.A meeting that would last for eight hours was then held in the Card Room with Tom Kameen,Cunards Technical Director and members of the John Brown Engineering team.

Over the years this room was used for lectures,games,reading,writing letters to the loved ones ( how many done this over the years? ) private functions,etc.It was during one of these private functions that changed my life.In summer 1991 the ship was on a Westbound Crossing towards New York,a private function was held in the Card Room for the Germany speaking passengers, a mini bar was set up and that would be run by me and one of the Bartenders,2 German waiters from the Columbia Restaurant would come and help with the canapes and snacks.One of the waiters was Anja and here began our relationship.Two years later we became a pair,married in 1999 and today we a wonderful life with our 2 kids far away the sea......

This room was removed during the 1994 Refit to became the Bookshop.
