Cunard or Carnival?

Although this was our tenth cruise it was our first with Cunard. Our expectations at the outset were high due to Cunard's reputation and for the most part were fully justified. The expectations that were not met ...

Second QM2 Cruise to Norway Excellent, as good as first to Dubai.

This cruise was a substitute for the Black Sea and Turkish Splendors which, due to Mr Putin, hardly touched the Black Sea! As we had stops at Warnemunde [Germany] and Kristiansand [Norway] on a previous cruise to St ...

Not gold standard!

First of all the ship itself is beautiful, the staterooms are well appointed and bathrooms adequate. What let the ship down was the niggardly approach to food, you had to request smoked salmon and when you did, you ...

When I booked this voyage, it was a last minute something to do over the summer. It was one of the best ever, and I started sailing in 1949 with the Queen of Bermuda from New York to Hamilton. My husband and I did a ...

The Queen Victoria is the smaller version of Cunard style than the Queen Mary 2. The ship is simpler in design. The public rooms on deck two and three are located on one corridor that runs the length of the ship. ...
