It isn’t over til it’s over.

Here is a random collection of photos we took on our cruise – hopefully they help capture an idea of what the ship was like:

Decks 6 & 7

The Dock

Sip (Champagne Bar)

Daily Schedule


Tattoo Parlor



Coffee Place

Red Room


Promenade Deck

Deck 12



Tablet that you could use to control the curtains, TV, lights, temperature etc

The hand soap is black, and leaves a dark foam on the towels. Very odd.

Deck 15


Deck 16

Deck 17

The dreaded running track

And goodbye from Richard Branson himself……..

    Thanks for sharing this trip. It gave me a very different look that Virgin Voyages – I think Cunard is a better fit (or HAL or Celebrity). Hoping to be on the QM2 in November.

    They do so many things right, but then they do so many things that do not enhance your cruise experience.

Enjoy QM2 – we will be on her in April after a safari in South Africa. Counting down the days!

At Sea

Our last sea day. I had planned to spend the day fighting for a space by the pool, but it was the day of the Queen’s funeral. So forget about the pool. I got up early and spent most of the day watching the funeral, and the coverage on the BBC. I...
