We have been on the QE2 and it was a wonderful trip. The crew go out of their way to make sure you are happy and the food is gorgeous. However, the ship as I am sure you will know is very old and due to be taken out of service in a couple of years and I have to say the cabins do look their age. We had a C grade outside cabin which was very nice but dated and the couple who joined us were in a M grade inside cabin with bunk beds which was pretty awful to be honest, there was very little space in it and it resembled a cupboard!!. If you have a normal inside cabin with twin beds and not bunk beds that should be OK but if you have booked one with bunk beds I would seriously find a bit of extra money and upgrade. But I can tell you that you will have a great time on the QE2, so enjoy.

Hi, we went on QE2 dec 05, our cabin was on deck 4, M1 grade, room 4215,it was rough weather anyway, but the room was very noisey and very small, being 13 weeks pregnant didnt help! we had twin beds and could just squeeze the cot in for our 2 year old, but the room was cramped compared to our other cruises on p&o and ocean village, hope you enjoy your cruis.

Fred To Enter The River Market

By Camilla Edwards

Fred Olsen have long been one of my favourite cruise lines, Braemar was the first ship I ever did a ” proper cruise”. When I say proper I mean not a mini cruise or ship visit as it was a 14 night Canary Islands sailing.In the last couple of years Braemar has been one of the lines ships that have started to do river cruising. Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...

They are all Cruise Ship Godmothers!Every time a new ship is set to launch we still love to guess who will be chosen, Godmothers lists are like reading through ‘Who’s Who’ list for the Rich and Famous (and also not so famous)It is a tradition to have a famous name to christen and bless a new ship and become the Godmother (not so many have Godfathers…)A ship Godmother by tradition is a well known face chosen to name the ship to bestow good luck and divine protection ove...

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination. Other than Sri Lanka, the friendliest place I have been to is Japan, where people will literally stop you in the street if you look ...
