Our holiday began in London for 3 nights at the Mayfair Mellinum Hotel booked by Cunard in our cruise package. This hotel was a pleasant place to stay and only a short taxi ride to many attractions. This was a good way to begin our trip. We were transported by motorcoach to Southhampton on Sat. to board the ship. Check in was easy and we began enjoying our trip right away in our beautiful Princess Suite.The room was clean & our cabin attendant greeted us within 30 mins. of our arrival. The Queen Mary 2 is a beautiful ship with a well trained professional staff. We only encountered one person who did not really want to help us --that was the person in charge of booking future cruises. I was surprised that this position was held by such a person. All other persons on the ship were very service oriented and they really aimed to please.

Our excursions in Norway & France were all good to excellent with guides that were well trained & interesting. From Bergen to Paris we sailed on calm seas with sunny weather so June is a good time for this cruise. I understand that this Norwegian Odyssey itinerary is new for the Queen Mary 2 and it is a winner. The ports in Norway were Bergen, Aalesund, Trondheim, Hellesylt / Geiranger, Flaam,and Stavanger. The one port in France was Le Havre which gave us the chance to see Paris. The trip into Paris was about 3 hours, but well worth the trip to see Paris for the first time.

As far as food I have just one word "Excellent". We found the activities & lectures to be entertaining & fun --- from Bingo to talks about the Vikings. There was something for everyone. While we are not into dancing, many people on board were & they had many different kinds of dances to attend including Balls. The balls were fun even for us non-dancers. Entertainment was good,but we found the Cunard singers & dancers to be the best we have ever seen on any ship. The guest entertainers were fair overall. The Queen Mary 2 will be visited by us again !
