We were very much looking forward to our cruise from Southampton to Dubai, via the Mediterranean and Suez Canal. Ship was great, food and staff very good. However, due to dredging in the Suez Canal we waited for 18 hours before being allowed to enter, then we transmitted the canal completely through the night in the dark! This was obviously completely out of the captains control admittedly, but a further blow was, due to the delay, we did not have time to visit Aqaba, where we had booked a trip to Petra. This meant 10 days at sea continuously which was awful. Admittedly staff worked hard with the entertainment programme, which was difficult as the Entertainers had also got stuck on the ship, as the changeover had not occurred in Aqaba.

We paid a lot of money for this cruise, and feel that Cunard failed to deliver the cruise thar we booked. Many passengers on the return flight were in agreement with this.

Very comfortable and spacious. Excellent stateroom attendant and free laundry facilities, which were always busy!
