Hurtigruten and the Northern Lights.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Hurtigruten Classic Round Voyage on the MS Finnmarken. The weather and Northern Lights were kind to us.

QM2 to Hamburg

Dear Rebecca & Zoltan, Just to let you know that we all had a fantastic time aboard QM2 last week. The remastered ship was lovely – a proper cruise liner.
