We booked this cruise to celebrate a 40th birthday and our 20th wedding anniversary for myself, husband and our 3 year old son. We loved the refined, elegant, beautiful decor, the attentive and friendly crew and the food was excellent.

I have to commend Cunard for their recruitment process because the crew were all wonderful. Our cabin steward, Maribeth, in Princess Grill Suites was fantastic and took great care of us. We were on deck 8 and were very happy with the size and location of our stateroom. We left our room by 8am every day and it was always serviced and immaculate within 30 minutes. We used the spa, gym and hair salon most days and everyone was very professional, courteous and friendly and we loved relaxing in the bath house. My hair always looked great thanks to Nicolene.

The food in Princess Grill was delicious and the service was impeccable. I have allergies and was well catered for with a special menu and the food was always fresh, well plated and full of flavour. There was also a wonderful range of wines and John, our sommelier, always recommended the perfect accompaniment to our meal. All the crew in the Princes Grill (Raul, Julian, Sushant, Jeffrey) and Grill Lounge were first class. There wasn't much atmosphere in the Grill Lounge although it was fine for a quick pre dinner drink and the bar steward, Dipak was always pleasant and welcoming and remembered our names and favourite drinks. The onboard photographers were amazing and were excited to have a little kid on board. They were very patient with him and thanks to them, we have very special mementos of our cruise. I have been very ill and am due more surgery so it really means a lot to us to have such beautiful family photos and video together to remember our trip.

Cabin Review

Princess Suite

Cabin P1

Very clean and spacious with lots of storage. Good location for the stairs, lifts, guest laundry for accessing the Lido and Princess Grill. Little noise during the night from Lido above but didn;t bother us too much
