Sail Date: Jan 2015
Cabin: Standard Inside

We chose this cruise to Dubai with Cunard as it included the Suez Canal and Egypt. We were supposed to visit Cairo (Pyramids) and Luxor (Tombs) in the Middle East but due to passenger and crew safety issues this was substituted with Aqaba (Petra) and Fujairah (Maiden Port) prior to cruise via email. We rang and tried to cancel cruise but was told this was not a significant change!

Cruise didn't start well with a 1.5 hour delay boarding at Southampton in a slow moving queue.

Everything on board Cunard QM2 attracts a service charge of 15% plus a $11 (£8) a day service charge. e.g. cheapest bottle of wine is $40 (£26) and the waiters and cabin staff at the end of your trip still anticipate a tip.
