Although a regular 'Cunarder' this was my first time on the QE. My son and I booked it very last minute as it was his birthday during the 7 night stay. I was a bit dubious about doing fly cruise, as I live fairly near to Southampton and the thought of flying did not fill me with joy. However on a positive note, one the pain of airports and transfers was out of the way and we arrived onboard it was was fabulous to be straight out in the sunshine rather having a few drab sea days with very little to do. The ship had an eclectic mix of international passengers of varying ages, which was interesting and amusing. We were luckily allocated second seating but unfortunately stuck with two old couples who had no other conversation other than cruises and ships they had been on and a desire to brag about them! We moved tables.....

My son and I love the deck sports- quits, shuffleboard and on the QE even croquet, however it is always disappointing on Cunard as you get the felling that the nets staff doing them are trying very hard to get it over with as quickly as possible, and do not organise proper tournaments, instead they give your their version of the various sports, and although I am not a great P and O fan, it's the one thing they do so much better.

They had some very attractive gentleman hosts on this voyage too ladies... I could have danced all night....
