A great introduction to cruising


We'd been promising ourselves a cruise when we retired, and finally the time had arrived. I would have been happy to book online but ended up going to our local travel agent, Bath Travel, to ensure I didn't make any ...

Cunard First Timers; Loved It!

Review of Cunard Queen Victoria This was our first cruise ever, and for the purposes of the review I suppose it is prudent to note that my partner and I are in our late 30’s - which is quite young for Cunard ...

Great First Experience

I've lived in several cruise ports, so because of my "disdain" of how busy and crowded places get on cruise ship days, I've always been reluctant to go on one. This time however it seemed like the best way to ...

First Time Cruising

I was ambivalent to say the least before embarking on this adventure with my husband and two teenage children, 14 and 17. If it ends up being the only cruise in my lifetime I can tell you it was an emotional, ...

We wouldn't travel with Cunard again due to the strict dress code.

There were good things about this cruise line. We had no problems with the ship or crew. They were kind and helpful. This ship was very clean. The food was best in The Britannia restaurant, but the menu's were very ...

First time cruisers

Embarkation - was a dream, very efficient and in our cabin within an hour of arriving at Southampton. We brought on a bottle of spirits and some mixers with no trouble. I think as long as you are discreet and don't ...

Mediterranean Explorer, First Cruise, won't be our last.

We are a couple in our early 50's on our first cruise, I didn't want lots of kids around, I did want to dress up in the evenings, I did a good bit of research before booking and it paid off; Cunard was perfect for ...

It really depends on how you feel when spending your money

I should say that this was my first sea cruise, previously I have enjoyed two river cruises with Scenic Tours who I would rate higher. Cunard is now unfortunately an American company, so you will be subject to the ...

First Time Cruisers

We approached this holiday with a certain amount of trepidation as it was our first cruise and the reaction of friends who had experience of cruising was certainly split into 'absolutely love it' and 'hated every ...

Luxury, elegance and indulgence

It was difficult to find fault with the Queen Victoria and the cruise. My partner and I had a spacious Queen's Grill suite with a huge balcony (at the aft). We can't understand why mid-ships is so much more popular, ...
