My Travels in New York - Part 2 - Inside the QM2





Meeting the captain - very glamorous affair


The ship is very classy with live music of the more orchestral variety


The staff however, were great and made us feel special and welcome






It was so relaxing and tranquil


Harpist playing as we arrived for dinner


Beautiful decor and extravagant settings



The QM2 is out of the ordinary


Its a very special ship indeed

My Travels in New York - Part 1 - Aboard the QM2


This ship is huge towering above the dock - like a floating hotel


I couldn't believe the size of it


It dwarfed all the others ships at Southampton



We set off for New York just as the sun was lowering



Everyone was on deck to watch the harbour disappear behind us



The circumference of the ship was vast as we explored our home for the next few days





There were swimming pools - plural! including one out on the rear deck




The ship was so big, and as we headed out into the blue we were on an adventure.

Taking the safety instructions seriously. 


Life jackets ahoy. 


Up on deck exploring.


A final back at you as we leave Southampton. 


Like father like daughter - where there's a camera! 


We will be there. 


Me and my daddy. 


Did someone say camera?


Yes they did - cheers! 


Cocktail time. 


The remake of Titanic - has to be done. 


Chilling on deck. 


It was a bit breezy up on top. 


Not too cold for a well earned Samuel Adams beer though. 


Blue skies and blue waters all around. 


Evening with the Captain. 


Glad rags on. 


We scrub up well. 


Loved this evening. 


Very posh and refined. 


Me and Dad - shades on and camera! 


Cheers mum.

Making an entrance. 


My lovely parents. 



We had such a good time.
