Rounding off my holiday suggestions for the year ahead – this time I am going to try and persuade you to visit the Fjord and Waterfalls on board Queen Mary 2. Let me start by showing you just what you would experience in this stunning photo:
Of course one of the special things about being on Queen Mary 2 is that wherever you go you feel special – and to be on the ship amongst such incredible scenery is quite something. The voyage I have picked departs Southampton on 13 July for 7 nights. You will visit four beautiful places in Norway. Stavanger sits on beautiful glassy water surrounded by mountains; Olden is a peaceful little village where you have a chance to see waterfalls and glaciers and visit the famous Nos viewpoint to take a picture with Queen Mary 2 down below you; and Geiranger is a great place to go and explore the mountain scenery in spectacular surroundings.
One of the best things to look forward to is relaxing on the promenades and pool decks of the ship and just watching Norway as you float past all it has to offer. The voyage comes with two full days at sea – plenty of time to explore Queen Mary 2. Plenty of time to enjoy our fine dining – relax in our Canyon Ranch Spa – take in a few shows – learn something new from one of our Insight Lecturers – try a pub lunch in the Golden Lion Pub – relax in the Chart Room after dinner to some soft Jazz – beat your partner at a game of backgammon – read a couple of books sitting on one of the beautiful white leather sofas in the Library – why not take the iPad you were given but don’t really know how to work to one of our Apple Learning sessions – dress up for dinner one evening and feel very
special – relax the next evening with a dinner in Todd English – snooze – go to the gym – have a hearty breakfast – try a cocktail or a cold beer at ‘beer-o-clock’ up in the Commodore Club and all the while relax as our ship’s company pamper you with our White Star Service. So – plenty to do on the most famous ocean liner in the world. Or, take it easy and just relax your way around the Norwegian Fjords.
Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria will also be visiting the Fjords this summer – so take your pick of the Cunard fleet.
Whatever you plan to do this summer and wherever you plan to go – we would love you to come and spend some time with us at Cunard Line. You will get to meet some interesting fellow travelers from around the world, see some breathtaking scenery and be well looked after – it’s what we do and we would love to do it for you.
OK I hear you say – enough of the persuasion – over the last three blogs I have shared three holiday ideas. Next up I will start to share some of the stories emerging from our three ships on their current world cruises – and look forward to some of the events we have planned.
I hope you are keeping well – wherever you may be…
