Sail Date: Aug 2015
Cabin: Balcony, obstructed view

This ship is marvelous. The public areas are gorgeous. The food was magnificent and we even had lobster tail one night, not so common any more. They had 4 formal nights, but if you didn't want to participate you could eat in the buffet. Our cabin was spacious and we had a partially obstructed view. Since most days were foggy and the only view was the ocean, it was OK. We stopped at one port, Halifax, Canada. We had been there before and spent the day walking around the city. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed the day. On some days the water and the winds were rough, but the QM11 is well designed for this.

This is a cruise for people who really enjoy the experience of cruising. Although they have some lectures and trivia games, there is not a lot to do. It is cruising of an earlier era - people playing board games, reading, and talking to fellow passengers. The internet was excellent and we got reception through out the cruise.

Medically the ship was sub standard. The receptionist informed us in a very flip way that this was a "floating hotel" and that they did not have an opthalamascope to look at my husband's eye. They seemed only concerned about payment. My husband ended up calling his eye Dr. at home.

Halifax

No shore excursion. We just walked around the town and enjoyed the town and harbor area.
