Cabin:

This cruise was a substitute for the Black Sea and Turkish Splendors which, due to Mr Putin, hardly touched the Black Sea! As we had stops at Warnemunde [Germany] and Kristiansand [Norway] on a previous cruise to St Petersburg the decision was made to head for Norway via Hamburg. Good choice.

Embarkation at Southampton..........I must mention this, was the slickest ever! Practically straight onto the ship with no queue; I could hardly believe it!

The stateroom was an upgrade issued about a week prior to the cruise. This glass-fronted balcony was the same as on QE and QV previously and is a better option to the enclosed balcony on decks 4 to 6 on QM2. There is often debate about this. To my mind the sheltered balcony would probably be better on a Trans-Atlantic trip. We will find out! Booked next July.
