We are experienced Cunarders. Some might say that we should broaden our horizons and try some other lines. For us, however, when Cunard consistently delivers to such a very high standard; when so many staff go out of their way to look ... Read more

Started cruising in August 2012. The first cruise was on the Queen Elizabeth to the Norwegian Fyords. Fabulous. Since then we have sailed on 13 Cunard cruises. I believe we are now diamond grade. We enjoy our cocktails in the Commodore ... Read more

This was our first cruise and after careful research here we thought it would be a good choice as we don't like loud and flashy. Flying from Bournemouth with Titan Airways, the initial impression was not great. The flight ran to ... Read more

I chose this crossing of the Atlantic from NYC to Southampton because it met my goal of enjoying a crossing without jet lag. Also, my wife and I were going to be in the UK for about a month so starting in Southampton was a good start. ... Read more

QM2 is like a new ship after her remastering. Everything seemed new - carpets, furniture, appointments. We have done a transatlantic before, but the Cunard "crossing" is indeed a different experience. I could tell the QM2 is a ... Read more

We were already vacationing in the U.K. when we had the sudden idea of returning to NYC by boat. Fortunately, the Aug. 1 sailing had one cabin available--a Britannica Club on deck 12--and we grabbed it. It was our first transatlantic ... Read more
