Embarkation in Brooklyn - Quick and efficient Disembarkation in Brooklyn - Chaotic - but with 2000+ people all trying to find their luggage - to be expected.
There was a norovirus issue on this cruise. It was dealt with very well, constant reminders on personal hygiene and use of hand sanitizers. A crew member was stained at every food service entry point to squirt purell onto your hands. There was no "self service" for food in the Kings Court buffet.
As seems to be usual, news of the outbreak was blown out of all proportion by the news media.
Entertainment - Quite varied as you would expect for an international audience. Phillip Browne, a singer from London was exceptional.
All the lecturers were really outstanding. From a Maritime historian, A Broadway producer, a forensics expert, A "lifestyle guru" and an Astronaut.
We particularly enjoy Ballroom dancing and there is no better place at sea for that than in the Queens room.
The service and quality of food was really good especially in the Brittania restaurant. Our table waiters were outstanding especially John from the Phillipines and Laura from the Ukraine.We arranged our own trips at each Island as tours from the ship were, as usual, so expensive.
And of course, The cruise was an opportunity to meet old friends and to make new friends.
Would we cruise with Cunard again? Most certainly.
