Queen Mary 2 – a visit

Sunday october 5th 2014 Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 visited Zeebrugge (Belgium). She is Cunard’s flagship and the most magnificent ocean liner ever built, combining Golden Age travel and modern luxury. We had the opportunity to visit the ship and enjoy a wonderful lunch at the Britannia Restaurant.

The Veuve Clicquot champagne bar would probably be one of my favourite places onboard.
