Amazing experience not to be missed.

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Baltic & Northern Europe
Embarkation: Southampton

We have recently returned from Norwegian Fjords Cruise on QM2. The whole experience was amazing from start to finish. She is a wonderful liner full of exuberance and elegance. Enhanced by the elegant dress code which is fitting to her style. Accommodation was a balcony room with restricted views, which was clean, comfortable and spacious.

The White Star service was second to none with friendly courteous staff who go that extra mile to please.

Dining in the Brittania Restaurant was a pleasure, great food and great service. There are two sittings, 6pm and 8:30, we chose the latter to make the most of the tours and sail-away's.

The sail-away parties are great fun but Hamburg was unforgettable with hundreds and thousands of people lining the River Elbe to wave us off.

Favourite ports of call were Flam, a quaint little village with stunning views and scenery. Well worth a trip on the railway to the top of the mountain and cycle ride back down. Hamburg, More a vibrant city with lots to see and do. Christiansands,a charming port with marina, castle and wonderful lakes to explore. 

A trip of a lifetime which exceeded our expectations. Less

Cabin review: Queen Mary 2 (QM2) Deluxe Balcony - Obstructed View Deck 8 8042

Pity about the restricted views looking onto lifeboats but good to have some outdoor space. Cabin, clean, comfortable and spacious with storage for cases under the bed which was a great idea.

Fantastic city with lots to see and do. If you can manage the 452 steps to the top of St Michaels Church the views are amazing. Beautiful parks.
