No one can predict the weather on ANY stretch of water at ANY time of year. I have been across the Bay of Biscay in flat calm several times in November/December, but have had windows broken on ships in the Med during the summer months! One thing IS for sure. The Queen Mary 2 is the best ship that you could ever hope to do the trip on! She has been built for that exact purpose, as an OCEAN LINER, rather than just a cruise ship! She can cruise along at around 30 knots with a specially reinforced hull and large computer controlled stabilisers. Just think before booking a balcony cabin though. With a 15 mph head wind, the airspeed past your cabin window could be around 50mph in mid Atlantic! Ever stuck your head out of a moving car or train window at that speed?

The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...

Brilliant News For Solo Travellers!

By Michelle Fennelly

Michelle Fennelly's blog

As a single traveller the majority of cruise liners will charge at least 100% supplement on a twin berth cabin for sole occupancy; this is actually double the price which in my view it is just ridiculous. It isnt fair and its not acceptable and its about time most cruise liners understood that a lot of their guests do travel alone.Well my good news is that Fred Olsen are doing special offers for solo travellers, eventually a cruise liner that has listened to their guests.The deal Fred Olsen a...
