Product Description:
Join Gary, Marina and baby Aemelia on an introspective account of a five day cruise aboard Cunard's Queen Victoria. 
Docking at Rotterdam, Zeebrugge, and Cherbourg. 
AN EXTRACT FROM BABY ON BOARD: Embarkation day has arrived. We are waiting for a taxi. Marina is in the kitchen making a pot of tea. Aemelia is playing with Maurice (a large brown bear). I am bringing our luggage downstairs and thinking back two years when Marina and I were sitting in a hotel reception waiting for a taxi. My thoughts now, though, are so different. I can't wait to embark, as this time I am looking forward to the cruise because the doubts and concerns I had have been replaced by fond memories of the freedom I felt from being at sea. This time I won't have to wander the ship with new eyes. I can discount much of what the ship has to offer by way of entertainment and distractions to concentrate on the aspects I found so freeing, which I didn't truly comprehend before. Since our last cruise there have been significant changes to our lives. Not least among them are Aemelia and a new home...
