After a 60 minute wait we boarded the ship at 1pm, dropped off our luggage at the cabin, and had a quick lunch at the Lido buffet. We enjoyed everything about our cruise, especially eating in the Britania Club restaurant, most of our meals were taken there, we were looked after most royaly by our waiters Emmanual and Dennis. Nothing was too much trouble for them, eg. extra sauces, extra vegetables. A bonus of eating in this restaurant was having the freedom to eat when we chose, without the cost of the grills. We ate fish and chips at the Golden Lion one lunchtime, always very popular,and sometimes hard to get a table. We had afternoon tea most days in the Lido buffet as there were long queues at the Queens room, and we had previously enjoyed this experience on the Queen Victoria. Ditno, out cabin steward soon knew our routine, and our cabin was always cleaned on our return from breakfast, he also regularaly checked if there was anything else we needed. We had a wonderful sailaway from Hamburg on the Sunday,the marathon had been held earlier in the day, and crowds lined the banks to wave us off. I have read previous reviews of this cruise, and I can only comment on our experiences. We had a wonderful cruise, we were treated with respect and friendliness by all,and we are counting the days for our next cruise on the Queen Mary for the Queens Jubilee.

Cabin review:

Very good location, middle ship, very quiet, good sized balcony, 2 chairs and table, foot stools would be a nice extra. Adequate wardrobe and drawer space for a week/10 days, might struggle for longer. Bed furnishing and sofa starting to look a little tired.

Port and Shore Excursions

Luneberg Walking Tour
very enjoyable morning walking around luneburg, and free time to enjoy a drink by the river before return to ship. tip: wear comfortable shoes for walking on cobbled streets. All the shops are closed on Sundays.
A lovely drive through very pretty villages to Honfleur. Enjoyed the walking tour of Honfleur, and free time after to enjoy a coffee and browse the shops before returning to ship. All the flower sellers were selling lily of the valley, which is traditional on the 1st of May every year.
