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
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!
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!
Our version of the royal portrait pose.
Making an entrance.
My lovely parents.
We had such a good time.
