there is more than enough for kids to do on the ship the staff are excellent with the children 2.we have had rough weather while travelling on the qm2 and to be honest the ship was stable and it was only looking outside that you noticed the weather bad. she can still travel at speed and it does not affect your enjoyment.

We travelled on the QM2 last year through force 9 Gales, during this period we never hardly felt any movement. the drinks on the tables did not even have a ripple. No problem travelling through bay of biscay.

We travelled Southampton to New York in Nov 08, we expected the weather to be a little ''choppy'' but the voyage was very stable. We did get to some rough weather on day 4 or 5 but all in all the ship can handle these weathers very well.... and as stated in another comment to your question, you hardly feel a thing. We saw a few children on board and they seemed to be catered for very well, with treasure hunts etc. We got talking to a mother of 2, who's kids she had hardly seen throughout the voyage as they were being ''entertained'' in the childrens club/ area. If you decide to book, i hope you have as enjoyable time as we did......

Dont think you go any where near the bay of biscay if you are gong to New York. The 'Bay' is quote "It lies along the western coast of France from Brest south to the Spanish border, and the northern coast of Spain west to Punta de Estaca de Bares, and is named for the Spanish province of Biscay. " When you leave the english channel you head west past Ireland so are well away from the bay. QM2 is a liner built specifically for the Atlantic and is more stable than the shallow draft cruise lners or ex ferries of Fred Olsen for example.

1. there are kids clubs on board for 1 to 17year olds and qualified nannies which work from 10am to midnight. 2. I did a transatlantic in 2007 on QM2 the captain avoided the area and went further south west as there was a storm in the north atlantic blowing a force 7, with her stabilizers she doesn't roll only pitches and it was fine, if your worried take quells seasickness tabs, they are non drowsy and work a treat. a good precaution go and enjoy, and don't worry.

No single supplements with Fred. Olsen

By Jo Cunningham

Jo Cunningham's blog

 Fred Olsen have just announced their turn of year campaign, with great deals to encourage early bookings and have announced a number of sailings with no single supplement. Fred. Olsen are particularly good for single customers, they have a higher proportion of single passengers than other cruise lines, which makes it easy to mix and make friends. They have a number of single cabins on each ship but these book up early and normally the single supplement on the remaining cabins is just to...
