Oh Dear

Still we did see some shop fronts and a childrens park made from oil well drilling gear. (Poor planning of port destinations were a feature of our QE2 cruise the year before).Onto Oslo. Now this was a gem.

We even put one over on an adjacent P&O liner by having christmas decorations up. The next port was Copenhagen. Not a chance. The rascals had organised a world climate summit and hadn’t told Cunard that berthing was not availabe.

Hamburg and its Xmas market was a peach. Everything that one could wish a xmas market should be. Zeebrugge we were told that the sea was too rough for the pilots to come out. Wind approx force 4-5, wave height 1.5mtr, cloud 8/8 visability good. More likely the pilots were on strike. Still; stooging about on the English channel for a day was almost interesting.

On board entertainment ranged from an Australian who sold millions of records (from his piano playing he should have stayed in his record shop) , a trombonist in the band who took up the instument the day before, a harpist who I would willing ly have bought tickets to go and see and a string quartet who were also very good but had a limited repertoir. The gingerbread village part of the onboard decorations included a satanistic bull. Perhaps a joke from the chef to go along with his portions of cheese at dinner.
