We travelled with 2 other older couples, and thoroughly enjoyed Cunard's formula for enjoyable cruising. Compared with previous cruises, we were pleased that here were few children on board - must be showing our age! We have few complaints, although some minor suggestions for improvements. We had 5 formal nights, but being on the late dinner sitting we missed the celebrations for Ascot, etc. in the Queens Room because these commenced too early. We were appalled at the wait of up to 2 hours to be processed by US Customs ' Immigration when going ashore at Fort Lauderdale. Maybe beyond Cunard's control, but surely they want the tourist dollars ashore? Our only Cunard shore trip was to the Kennedy Space Centre, which was wonderful and a long-time ambition fulfilled. Of course, having Buzz Aldrin on board for his talks beforehand was a very special bonus which I will never forget! The formality on board initially was a little irksome, but with the passage of a few days we came to appreciate the standards Cunard insisted on. Meals in the Britannia Restaurant were excellent - in 3 successive dinners I had partridge, Pheasant, and lobster! Excellent staff there, and a sommelier who made recommendations without pushing the more expensive wines. As we had booked with "pre-paid gratuities" we were at a loss to know how much to tip our wonderful stewards and waiters - perhaps more guidance could be provided by Cunard? For New Zealanders who generally do not believe or experience tipping, this is no small problem! Read Less

We had just retired and decided a world cruise was a great way to transition from our work lifestyle to finally having the fun we always dreamed of in retirement. What a great decision! We boarded in Los Angeles for the LA/Sydney/LA leg of the QV's world cruise with many ports in the South Pacific...Hawaii, Fiji, French Polynesia, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Milford Sound/Picton and Wellington, NZ, Bora Bora and many more. Our balcony cabin was very clean, convenient, comfortable and had lots of storage. Service aboard from our cabin steward to all the various restaurant/dining room staff was absolutely excellent in every way possible. The quality of the food was very good. I have critical diet restrictions which were unhesitatingly accommodated, always with a smile and kind words. Having the option of room service if we weren't feeling up to going to the dining room was much appreciated. We particularly enjoyed the paddle tennis and exercise facilities as well as the many interesting guest speakers and most of the entertainment. Wrangling laundry was challenging until we discovered when the machines were most likely to be available (first thing in the morning, around dinner time, in ports). The only disappointment was the mediocre salon (why do they not do gel nails??!!) but operation of the salon is sub-contracted out and not a Cunard service. We met many wonderful people and have new friends from all over the world we are still in touch with and look forward to cruising with again......QM2 world cruise 2017 anyone?! Read Less
