This was our tenth cruise but first with Cunard, so we had lots to compare it with. We were not disappointed. Our cases were quickly taken away at Rome Airport and deposited to our stateroom by the time we arrived on the ship. Checking in was a bit chaotic, but friends who arrived a week later said they 'sailed' through.
Our stateroom a balcony on deck five was light, clean and well maintained. I would say only one downside was the size of television, it was far too small. We were greeted by our steward Joel who was polite and courteous as was his assistant. I asked that the room be cleaned early in the morning and I must say it was by the time we came back from breakfast every day.
The ship was traditional, elegant, tastefully and beautifully decorated and well kept. Our balcony was even painted whilst on board.
Cabin was well maintained. Bathroom was small but we managed. ENough room in cupboards for all our clothes etc. Suitcases fitted under read where there was more drawer space
