We booked this cruise 18 months ago as it was an excellent price and it was booked as our first ever cruise (we actually managed to fit in two before we went in the end) The ship was beautiful. Lots of wood and Art Deco style, very classic as you would expect. Our stateroom was nice but no nicer than what we had experienced with Princess or P&O earlier this year. The food was nice but I had expected Cunard to be a cut above the rest. It wasn’t any better than P&O. The service wasn’t any better although the food was as nice. The waitress asked if anyone wanted wine with their dinner and if we said no, we weren’t asked if there was anything else we wanted. 10 minutes later I had to ask for a gin and tonic and it seemed like it wasn’t normal to have anything else but wine or water with dinner. Drinks and other items on board are priced in dollars. We were extremely shocked at the price of the drinks on board. A glass of Shiraz at dinner was $17! You have to be very careful when ordering drinks as most of the time you aren’t asked if you want single or double spirits. 4 gin and tonics cost $62! We had to be out of our stateroom by 0800 on disembarkation morning. This isn’t out of the ordinary but the main restaurant closed at 0800. Thinking we would have time to have a nice breakfast before our disembarkation time of 0915, we arrived at the buffet restaurant extremely shocked to see that we couldn’t find anywhere to sit. Upon finding some seats outside by the pool area, we returned to the buffet only to find that the queue was out the door. People walking round the buffet with extremely large suitcases didn’t help either. We ended up leaving the ship and stopping for breakfast on the way back home. This did leave a somewhat sour taste as we had had, a lovely weekend away The evening entertainment in the theatre was excellent. The 4 Tunes on the Friday were exceptional. The Top Hat production on the Saturday wasn’t really my cup of tea, however I understand that it was of excellent quality We went to the golden lion pub for the trivia which we enjoyed but unfortunately there was a large group of people very drunk and about to fight . There seemed to be lots of groups and I’m not sure if you would get this on a standard 7 night Cunard Voyage? I would only go back on a Cunard voyage if it was an excellent deal. The drinks were unbelievably expensive and it would make things very unaffordable. Read Less

The ship was beautiful, very sturdy and we'll maintained. The staff in general were excellent, the service good, but the food was a real let down. It was either bland or too salty and overcooked. The Britannia restaurant was poor so was the buffet on the Lido deck. So disappointing. Of the three cruise lines I have travelled on this was the poorest. My accessible cabin was wonderful, everything I asked for was there. The three companions I was with were happy with the service and the cruise generally. I I did not book any excursions as I travelled with a mobility scooter. The first shuttle bus was acceptable and helpful but at Lanzarote my companions and I boarded the bus and were dumped at the end of the new port. (Why go to a place closed on Sunday?) There were no shops or cafes available, and we were told we had to walk 20 minutes into town to see if anything was open. Alternatively we could risk taking a 20 minute taxi to the other side of the island to a possibly open market. As we did not know if we could get back we just got back on the bus and stayed on the ship. Overall very disappointing. Read Less

An enjoyable cruise in Princess Grill for the following reasons; Lovely Princess Grill cabin mid ship with fantastic views, spaciousness and extras such as tea, coffee maker, good sized bathrooms with amenities and handy to all areas. The restaurant was amazing with an excellent table, service and food to die for. The only downside was both my husband eat Kosher food, two meals came with pork in them! The waiter who knew our request, quickly took them away and apologises offered. The lounge area on deck 12 is comfortable but a little small, particularly on sea days when the weather was bad and 100 passengers were trying to get seats for approximately 50. Still, you don't seem to spend too much time there and a couple of hours was more than enough. A good tip is to go after dinner when most people head off to the show and the area is pretty much empty. Highs were drinks with the captain, the formal nights were a joy (lobster thermidor was heavenly), the shows were superb and the atmosphere onboard was spot on. A couple of niggles. The check in staff at Southampton could have been more welcoming with a smile and wishing us an enjoyable cruise, the cabin attendants would leave their trolleys stacked outside the cabins most hours and enjoyed waking guests at odd hours with their constant noise outside and for some reason we had plenty of maintenance issues - lights, balcony, carpet, air con which was a bit odd (5 visits in a 14 night cruise was a bit excessive). All in all a great relaxing cruise and have now booked another! Read Less
