A nice New Years Eve cruise.

We sailed over New Year’s Eve, out of Southampton, with family & friends. This was our first time on Cunard. Windstar, by far, remains my favorite. We stayed 2 nights pre-cruise in London, it was a good ...

Cunard newbies - we were impressed

After cruising for more than 25 years, we are old school. We like ballroom/Latin dancing, promenade decks, and days at sea. It is hard to argue with the pricing and choices from the mass market lines these days, but ...

Cunard Resting on Laurels and Reputation

First off, let me say the ONLY reason I'm taking the time to write this review is because of the constant nickle and diming of Cunard and their stingy ways. Otherwise I'd have just blown even the extra $3,500 off. ...

Wonderfully good and shockingly bad - don't believe the Cunard hype.

This was our first cruise and probably our last and never with Cunard again. We chose Cunard on reputation, one that we found is not all it seems. It was a paradox. Both excellent and dreadful. We stayed in a ...
