First, we enjoyed the cruise, as much for its amazing itinerary as anyhting else. The Greek and Turkish ancient (Greek/Roman) history that we learned so much about as kids, came to life. The ship itself is really nice, a good size, ... Read more

I have cruised with lots of cruise lines and wanted to sail with Cunard. As I choose the itinerary before the ship the choice has never included Cunard as it was always so much more expensive. I know some of you may say you get what you ... Read more

Time for Cunard to rethink their strategy as they will soon be running out of customers. Baby Boomers will be up next and they will demand so much more. Overall a nice vacation because we basically ignored what Cunard had on offer and ... Read more

I've lived in several cruise ports, so because of my "disdain" of how busy and crowded places get on cruise ship days, I've always been reluctant to go on one. This time however it seemed like the best way to explore some ... Read more

We were on 10 cruises before this one, and with this one we experienced the most unfriendly passengers. No kids were seen. Most were OLD people. The reviews said the food was the best but compared with Princess Cruises, Norwegian, Disney, ... Read more

Why do people choose Cunard? The strictly enforced dress-codes? The link with the golden age of liners? Good service? Your fellow passengers at dinner? On the sailing I was on more than half the passengers were from the UK. The next ... Read more
