You will not be unpacking when you first board a cruise ship. The first thing for most is up to the self service restaurant for a bite & then most people explore the ship. Your luggage will arrive later in the afternoon.

I am also going on the cruise however staying on until Miami. Its a wonderful ship, so much to do and see. You must be on deck for the sailaway party, champagne in hand! I have done the crossing once before and never saw all the ship! Its great fun exploring the liner. Have a superb trip, see you in the Commodore Club! :-) .

Only Mrs Bucket changes for the sailaway, all the others are still waiting for their cases to arrive at the cabin. No travelling clothes are fine for that and a good coat as you will find that the wind comes up the Solent at a rate of knots. Unfortunately unless you have a bottle in your cabin when you arrive, it does happen, you will have to pay for your champagne.... Neil .

Hi there, when you go on the Q.M shortly to go tranatlantic you are going on a trip of your life and I am sure you will enjoy every minute. The first thing to do when you have un packed have a walk round the ship to get your bearings, you will still get lossed after 6 days cruising. I went on QM 2 in Nov 2006 for my first cruise and since then I have had 7 cruises including transatlantic to New York and return Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!! and I am nearly 70 years old but im off again on a cruise in May 2009. Have a great trip and enjoy it, Best regards Brian,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,.

Open the sparkly, toast your good fortune, walk round the decks and soak up the atmosphere of being on such a wonderful ship. Leaving Sothampton is exciting and the excitment stays with you every day of your trip. It is fantanstic cruising in to New York, you will have the most amazing time.

Looking For School Holiday Cruises?

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

One of the perks of living in a seaside town is the yearly airshow that comes to Weston Super Mare every June and lasts the whole weekend. The whole town is buzzing with excitement and ethusiasm, and plane enthusiasts alike. This weekend we were so lucky with weather, reaching the late twenties and even higher in some parts of the day.Not only do we have our skiers filled with amazingly aerodynamics performances but our beach lawns come to life thriving with people walking around the various...
