Sail Date: Aug 2013
Cabin: Princess Suite

We have recently returned from our first crossing on the in August, 2013 from Southampton to New York. What a wonderful experience! We are veteran cruisers and travelers who have been many places on ships from Iceland to Antarctica but had never done a crossing before.

We chose the Princess Grille category and we very happy with the selection. It was well worth the money. The cabin was spectacular--we even had a walk-in closet plus three more closets in the room and tons of drawers and storage space. We could have moved in for months. The balcony was large with comfortable chaise lounges. However, the really perk was the dining. We had an assigned table for 7--another married couple, two sisters traveling together, and a single young man. However, we could eat any of our meals at any time the dining room was open. Our places were always there for us. We had wonderful wait staff and an excellent wine steward. Everyone was friendly but not pompous.

I get bored easily but was never bored on our 7 day crossing. There were a variety of lectures, entertainers, classes, activities for every interest. The planetarium was a real plus. We also enjoyed the performances by the young actors from the Royal Academy of the Dramatic Arts (RADA). The formal nights were wonderful--everyone dressed up and it was like the old days when everyone went across the Atlantic like this. We loved our experience and will definitely choose Cunard again.

Cabin Review

Princess Suite

Cabin P1

We were located in a Princess Grille Suite on Deck 10 (10056). It was huge with tons of storage space and a large balcony. We rarely felt that we were moving.
