Queen Victoria Land of the midnight sun June 23rd

Has anyone done this trip who can advise us on excursions i.e.cost and whether we can do any ourselves, which ones to skip and must-do's. Also what clothing should we pack - do we need thermals, ski jackets, snowboots? Help!!

Haven't got a clue about costs and what excusions to take (as I don't know what excursions Cunard offers on this cruise).

But thermals? snowboots? in the middel of summer? It might be a bit chilly up at North Cape and Spitsbergen, but a woolen jumper and a windbreaker will be quite enough (and maybe some warm undies if your going dogsledding or something) - the normal temperature for Spitsbergen in June is 2 degrees Celsius.

We have done this trip a couple of years ago. Pack a pair of shorts and some crocs, should be sufficient. Good oompany is more important. PS a good breakfast with some fresh prawns will set you up for the day.
