What a surprise we had with this ship. Having read the reviews on cruise critic we were a little worried about what we we find with this ship but we were so pleased to find that she is amazing. Clean, good food, excellent accommodation and really good entertainment. The crew were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. Embarkation was so fast. We arrived at Southampton port at 2:30pm and went straight on-board with no waiting at all. By the time we found our cabin, out luggage was already outside, waiting for us! The alcohol prices are a little high but the soda package is excellent value for money and includes soft drinks and juices. We just enjoyed alcoholic drinks whilst ashore and stuck to soft drinks when aboard and it suited us fine. The food was really good in the Britannia Restaurant but we ate in the alternative dining venue on the Aztec evening and were amazed at the service and quality. We had an obstructed view outside cabin and it was perfect for us as we spend little time in the cabin. The ship is spotlessly clean and considering her age, she looks pristine. There were a few glitches with the entertainment on this cruise but it did not spoil anything and the entertainment staff went the extra mile to ensure our evenings were very enjoyable. The ports of call on this cruise were good and we especially enjoyed Tangier, although a lot of people on the ship did not go ashore here. We arranged a self disembarkation and left the ship seamlessly at 7:30 am. No waiting or delays at all. We thoroughly recommend both Cunard and this vessel.

Wonderful Cruise, Highly Recommend Cunard

Cabin Review

Oceanview, obstructed view
Cabin FC 4065
We booked a late saver so did not choose our cabin. We were worried when we found that the cabin was opposite the launderette as some reviewers had made a point of saying what a lot of issues they had being near the launderettes.

In the end the cabin was perfect for us. Despite being a partial view, the obstruction was minimal and the launderette was no problem at all. We hardly saw anybody using it and as it shut at about 9:00pm, it caused no issues at all.

The cabin was clean and had enough space for all of our clothes. Luggage stored under the bed easily. The bed itself was very comfy.
