  3. Queen Mary 2 (QM2)
This was our 3rd cruise on QM2. After many years of spending Christmas & New Year entertaining family and others, we thought it time we had a rest and enjoyed our Christmas without cleaning, cooking and all that goes with having a house full over Christmas. We planned as 'seniors', a lovely holiday that meant for over 40 years we were spoilt. After arriving in the UK we had 5 great days for the very first time experiencing Christmas in London. The coloured lights the very cool weather, seeing we live in the tropics in Australia. What a thrill it was & what an experience. We finally caught a shuttle bus to Southampton and boarded the very beautiful Ocean Liner QE2. The experience of crossing the Atlantic during winter was a fantastic journey. Yes, it was rough and the seas were high and the winds were tremendous, yet the QM2 handled it all with ease. After visiting New York on the 7th day we headed to the Caribbean for the warmth and hospitality of the locals. We must say cruising at Christmas on QM2 is just breathtaking, the decoration on board, the excitement of being spoilt by the stall and officers. Just a beautiful memory that we will never forget. Some of the lovey people on board have now become pen friends we hope forever. New Years Eve was just something that will live with us forever.. We do not believe Cunard can top the effort they put into a our Christmas & New Years cruise. We highly recommend a cruise on a Christmas New Year Cruise on QM2. You will not be disappointed.
