Sail Date: Jan 2015
Cabin: Balcony, sheltered

Joined QM2 for the first leg of the round the world cruise, through the Med, Suez Canal and onto Dubai. What a disappointment, starting with 3 hour wait standing in the Shed to get. On. could

Could Cunard not organise for its passengers to sit down in empty lounge if they were going to take that long to board passengers.

The ship is tired and shows it's age, the burst water pipes at 3 in the morning was indicative. Whilst appreciating that some of the itinery changes were beyond Cunard's control, the cancelling of the Egypt stops, but the fiasco at the Suez Canal surely could have been anticipated? Not calling at Aqaba as a result upset most passengers and the resultant 10 days at sea with no port calls got earning.

Cabin Review

Balcony, sheltered

Cabin BD

Bed was comfortable especially the pillows. Shower rooms are small. On several nights there was no water due to maintenance works and when it came back on it was full of black bits! Cabin steward was good.
