From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Tonights menu was the same as the outward sailing night, the rest of the voyage menus all had slight changes

The diary l didn't continue much with, mainly due to the fact that there wasn't  much time for it, Some highlights were noted roughly down, but becoming much more aware of what there was to do on board l just wanted to enjoy it all, and with the 5 days crossings there was just so much to do, and not all that long to do it in. It was the speed that impressed me, out on the open decks you were very much aware you were going fast.

Friends made on that crossing among the passengers, sadly most have passed on But the people l encountered were really a joy to be with and in a sense made this crossing just so memorable. The fact that we were all newcomers perhaps added to that fact. Of course being so young and this being my first time abroad everything was new to me, In the safe environment onboard we were all in the same boat so to speak.

Looking back It was a big undertaking to do a voyage of this kind, and l can understand why some thought it was a bit of a mad thing to do  l was perhaps too young to appreciate the food and in that side of things  l wasn't adventurous enough.
But there you have it, that was my first ever trip on what was for me the most amazing ship ever. If someone had said to me at the time l would have gone as often as l had done. Really l wouldn't have believed them.
