ports of call great entertainment dismil

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
having booked this cruise and knowing cunard's reputation we were expecting 5 star treatment all the way. our flights, balcony cabin, transfers at airports etc were 5 star our ports of call were great. the staff were wonderful the evening meals were lovely, the various lounges very comfortable, walking deck great as were all the facilities.

now for the downside lunch was average the usual salads,cheeses, cold meats were plentiful as was the very british fare example one lunch was sausage and mash or lancashire hotpot grilled fish with all the chefs from around the world where was variety of dishes from around the world the only time we had a stir fry it was tasteless. as a scot i expected an offering of haggis on st andrews day as a jewish festival was listed as japanese breakfasts and meals were on offer when it was mentioned to the captain by an english friend she was told :they want to be independant: she was very annoyed at this retort as were we so much for cross border More relations...our other big dissappointment was the entertainment every night ballroom dancing mainly attednded by the oriental guests and elderly cruisers, the pub had a quiz every night then a pianist who every night had the same jokes and awful music the yacht club pianist was not any better the pub closed early and had no atmosphere except at lunch time. the theatre shows were out of the 30's and i know you can,t please everyone but we heard more complaints about the entertainment from lots of people. the entertainment staff seemed lack lustre between the ditsy blond routine that was boring and we felt they were only going through the motions the stage shows were bland overall if i had paid full price for this cruise i would be demanding money back it was worth every penny of the £699 for the ports of call and evening dinners but would not be rushing to book a cunard cruise it was nowhere as good as holland and america or celebrity for entertainment or food. i felt i was growing older by the day on this cruise it could have been so much better Less
