Cunard is of course dressier than most cruise lines. I had bought a tux specially and in a 11 day cruise there were three formal nights and I found that i enjoyed them more as went along. If you really dont like dressing up you may wish to choose another cruise line.- having been on NCL Carnival and Princess we will certainly use Cunard again at the right price. It is certainly true that having to wear a jacket on informal nights does mean that Cunard informal is on a par with formal nights on some other cruises.
We were allocated a disabled room because my wife uses a mobility scooter . The cabin was larger than expected with a good sized balcony and shower room It was indeed spacious which for a balcony cabin I hardly expected. Our steward was good and helpful without being obtrusive.
