We wouldn't travel with Cunard again due to the strict dress code.

There were good things about this cruise line. We had no problems with the ship or crew. They were kind and helpful. This ship was very clean. The food was best in The Britannia restaurant, but the menu's were very strange offerings, but ended up delicious. The Lido buffet was ok with the best food item we had being baklava. We did enjoy the Lion Pub lunch of fish & chips but it only served food until 2:00 pm. The Lion Pub also was where we hung out sometimes in the evenings playing trivia games and enjoying Troy our server. The evenings were very boring unless you enjoy piano, ball room dancing and mediocre entertainment. Thank goodness we only had one at sea day with the other days spent off ship enjoying excursions. Honestly, the worst part of the whole experience was being on vacation and having to dress up every night. The informal nights, men are required to wear a jacket. That is not informal to us. I didn't feel relaxed in a dress & heels every night. We have been on other cruise lines we enjoyed more than this and we will be returning to Princess again. The reason we went with Cunard was because Princess would not allow three people in a room. My single son ( who is a marine ) offered to pay full price for a single room but was denied. Cunard allowed him to share a room with his sister & her husband at a reduced rate. He slept on a cot in their room for a lot of money! IF we had known he was going to sleep on a cot, we wouldn't have used this cruise line either! An adult man deserves to sleep comfortably in a bed for the money that was paid.

Our steward was excellent. Our room was very clean & maintained well! Nothing missing or misplaced at all! When we arrived the floor was wet due to a spill before we arrived.

They did their best to get it dry. No complaints at all!
