Cabin: Oceanview, obstructed view

We are veteran cruisers and like to book voyages that are different or unique (we've done three Maiden Voyages as well as the Titanic Memorial Cruise - all one-offs). Therefore we were looking forward to the unique "Lusitania Remembered" cruise offered by Cunard on board the Queen Victoria. In addition 2015 is the 175th Anniversary of Cunard, and the cruise line had put on a number of special events to mark this.

We boarded at Southampton, where all three Cunard Queens were in port together, waiting to leave in a convoy. Queen Victoria was at the back of the procession, which allowed us to get some great photos of the QM2 and QE. Seeing all three queens leaving together, their foghorns blasting away, was quite an experience.

We were allocated cabin 4119, a standard outside cabin which was spacious and immaculate. The king-size bed contained very comfortable and crisp cotton sheets, pillowcases and duvet. The cabin also contained a settee, coffee table, ample wardrobe and drawer space and a well-appointed bathroom with a selection of toiletries. The flat-screen television had an extensive selection of channels and programmes. There was also a fridge containing a mini-bar, and our excellent cabin stewardess kept our ice-bucket filled.

Cabin Review

Oceanview, obstructed view

Cabin FA

A standard outside cabin which was spacious and immaculate. The window is almost fully obstructed by the lifeboat outside, unless that particular boat is being used as the ship's tender, which did happen on one occasion. The king-size bed contained very comfortable and crisp cotton sheets, pillowcases and duvet. The cabin also contained a settee, coffee table, ample wardrobe and drawer space and a well-appointed bathroom with a selection of toiletries. The flat-screen television had an extensive selection of channels and programmes. There was also a fridge containing a mini-bar, and our excellent cabin stewardess kept our ice-bucket filled. We would stay in 4119 again.
