Sail Date: Jan 2015

Completely and utterly disappointed with Cunard. Embarkation was a shambles. It took two and a half hours standing in a queue to get checked in. We were very much looking forward to our cruise from Southampton to Dubai via the Mediterranean and Suez Canal,but as we stopped in Barcelona till 2-30 am and then in Civitavecchia till 11-30 pm we missed our slot for the Suez Canal.The captain said it was caused by dredging works on canal as it is actually being widened at present,so went through canal at night and saw nothing.

Next stop Jordan, did not go because there was no buses available for trips, all in all 10 days spent at sea. No compensation was offered for missing destinations or going through Suez at night. Even Thomsons gave compensation to everyone when they could'nt get to the Azores on a previous cruise.

To cap it all I left my camera in the Commodore club bar,I returned the next morning to see if it had been found but no one had seen it. I went to the pursers office to see if it had been handed in but no joy there,they took my details and I was told that the head of security would be in touch but alas he never did.

It was a nice size for an inside cabin.
