Cunard dumbing down, aboard QM2
Destination: Canada & New England
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The planetarium was inoperable,had been for more than a month or more,1 of 4 reasons we chose this venue.No prior communications.No video game room also advertised.
The cunard shore excursions were a total disappointment,halifax had an ADD guide,locked church all on board bus were angry, cancelled all remaining,would have been happy to pay twice the price not to go.We scheduled 3 private tours through our travel agent all were great.
Fish and chips in pub also not edible server disappeared,same happened to table mates day before.
Wood shims all over stateroom,bulkheads deck,art work,in seas, room squeaked horribly. the captain announced that we had Engine problems,no hot water 2 times when most needed.I doubt More stablizers were deployed as we tried to make up time in rough seas.valet service losr collar stays and broke off buttons ,had to redo slacks crease on side,not front as indicated.
Our table mates were fun,especially when no one could cut the beef wellington,it was deplorable,the fish items were good as well as the side dishes.We though we booked the dorchester and got a holiday inn,Queens grill Less

Port and Shore Excursions
tour guide was ADD,couldn,t finish a thought,raved about a wooden church only to find out it eas locked,the titanic experience wsa wonderful,lost two more passengers,had to wait finally to forestall a mutiny,we left,upon leaving the tardy couple arrived to many unkind comments
great tour,could not book inside tour with cunard,we had a great lunch at the black pearl,ocean drive was beautiful.
The Elms Mansion
so terrible,dropped us at a market selling mostly food and produce.reversing falls,no in tide didn't see much,waited for missing person who never arrived.
