We boarded the ship in Dubia for the final leg of it`s first world cruise.After flying from the UK to Dubia we were taken to a local hotel for breakfast at 7-30am

and then had to wait until 12 noon for a transfer coach to take us to the ship.

Our disabled balcony cabin was very comfortable and serviced daily without any problems.We dined second sitting in the Brittania Restaraunt The menu was quite varied but very small portions and never hot, just warm.The fish courses were always 3/4 very small tail ends and tasteless, the vegetables usually consisted

2/3 very very small potatoes and 2/3 small pieces of carrot.

The ship itself is very well appointed and comfortable and clean in all areas.

The entertainment department seems to be lacking in many ways.During out 19 nights the Cunard dancers only only appeared for 10 minutes on 2 evenings.Most passengers we met complained about the poor quality of the guest artists, and the number of repeats/ 3 nights the theatre only showed a film. Due to the lack of entertainment in any other venues and all th bars being empty, at 8-30pm the ship became a floating chapel of rest!

Most nights in the beautiful ballroom there would only be the 8 Cunard dance hosts

and 8/10 single ladies wanting to dance.

Two of the main attractions to cruising is certainly the onboard entertainment and the food, and until Cunard address this issue we shall not be sailing with them again!
