The service in the Britannia restaurant was as great as always. But the weather across the Atlantic was dreadful. We were late into Bermuda and Port Canaveral. The Churchill cigar lounge was full of cigarette smokers and resembled the Dog and Duck pub rather than an intimate cigar lounge as it is advertised. Day activities were poor and because of the weather the decks were often closed. Entertainment was average in the evening but the ballroom dancing was good as the music has reverted to music you can dance to. Weather forecasts by the Captain every day were very inaccurate. We stayed on in Fort Lauderdale at the Marriott Pompano. We wished we hadn’t bothered as this is a transient hotel that caters for business functions, air crew and people boarding a cruise ie one nighters. Poor choice Cunard. We will never sail the Atlantic again in January with Force 9-10 winds. It was my wife’s 60th birthday and Cunard not organise the correct day for the gifts in the room that I had arranged. The ship also experienced engine trouble, listed at one point and in summary this was our worst Cunard cruise. Read Less

A mini cruise to celebrate my wifes 65th Birthday on her favourite ship. CPS were as usual first class,luggage and car whisked away in an instant. Booking in and embarkation was faultless,10 minutes from entering booking hall to being on the ship. Suite 7030 was really nice,the only disappointment was that due to our late booking Guarantee Suites only were available and we were allocated a disabled suite,now, had we been disabled I would have been more than happy but being able bodied the lack of a Jacuzzi bath,my wife particularly loves that perk and a separate changing area was disappointing and on a long cruise there could be an issue with a lack of storage space, a ramp was fitted to the balcony but if you didn't open the door fully then a part of the ramp does not drop flush,it stands up and is a really dangerous trip hazard,as we both found out! I do admit to feeling that having booked a QG suite we were not getting 100% of the luxury we have enjoyed in the past. Our Butler,Alex recognised us straight away as we have met him on previous cruises and his memory of our likes was amazing,nothing is too much trouble for him or Richie the Under Butler. Quality of the afternoon Canapes has improved vastly since our last QG experience. We were very happy with our table in the QG restaurant,a nice table for two by the window,the service was as usual impeccable though there has been a noticeable lowering of standards,the Caviar starter is now a joke compared to a few years ago, and having to order certain items at lunch time for dinner and those items mostly being for two,which means if your partner does not like Chateaubriand,Lobster etc,then you have to hope it pops up on the menu as ordering off menu now seems to be frowned upon,QG is still very good,but not what it was!! Entertainment was great,the main productions were excellent,the Jazz Band in the Golden Lion amazing,the Harpist a joy and the Queens Room Dance Band truly first class. We attended the lecture by Mary the Cunard Hostess on the old Queens which was very good and being an aviation enthusiast the talk by David the Lightning pilot was very interesting. Noticeable was the number of people ignoring dress codes but the vast majority dressed up and the two formal nights felt like the old Cunard. Hamburg was very nice to stroll around,not too cold and good to stretch our legs. Disembarkation was fast,smooth and painless. All in all a very nice mini cruise which we really enjoyed, penny pinching is now noticeable across most cruise lines unfortunately now affecting Cunard and before I forget the age old lament on Cunard,extortionate drinks prices, but Cunard still remains our favourite as long as the penny pinching does not go too far!!

Chose cruise on recommendation. Brittania Outside with Balcony on Deck 4. Cabin nice but not exceptional, shower particularly small. Steward did a good job. Corridors on several of the lower decks were at times smelly and were well in need of re-decoration. Main public areas were much better but our biggest criticism was more related to other guests. Commodore Bar at times almost empty and half the guests snoozing or playing scrabble or other board games. I am 82 but at least I am active. Dinner companions however were excellent, shared table for 6. Main Dining room food mediocre, some very poor quality sourcing of produce, steaks which were uneatable etc. The only credit could be to the dessert kitchen team. Lido Buffet much better but still does not reach the standards of other cruise lines (see below). The much aclaimed ballroom, excellent if you are a professional dancer, must have been made for those who frequent Blackpool and Torquay but not for those who want to just dance close. We did however find during the last couple of days The Yacht Club disco. My partner and I will probably not return to Cunard. I would much rather have the activity and much busier venues on Celebrity Cruise ships also at a somewhat more realistic price, Read Less
