Cruising in the Baltic and experiencing millpond seas in the midnight sun in St Petersberg was always going to be great despite the ship but QE is such a special ship. Initially after QM2 she seemed slightly limited-the Spa especially is rather small and the steam rooms were having teething problems and staff service was not quite as good, but as the cruise progressed service greatly improved and we fell for the ship and it's tasteful elegant style.
Excursions were well organised and entertainments good - especially the dance troupe aboard. The ports were all amazing and we had perfect weather to enjoy the ship and the excursions to the full.Food was excellent and promptly served.The ship made a first visit to Travemunde and the welcome and send off was incredible with German bands playing our National Anthem and literally thousands lining the quayside waving flags-surprisingly very moving!
Our highlights were many..Bergen is very pretty and was alive as Bruce More Springsteen(The Boss) was in town!,The Royal Family roamed freely amongst us in their Palace in Stockholm and we sat in a cafe on pontoons in the river in the city;St Petersberg is incredible and we crammed in as many tours as possible.Talinn is beautiful,Copenhagan and visiting Ypres on our last port call very moving. All on what we consider to be the best Cunard ship-so booked 2 more cruises! Less
