Bruising on my left arm, due to being hit by an automatic door closing.

We love Cunard ships, we are now Diamond status so have sailed with them many times, we normally chose them over Princess or P&O as in our experience, their service is the best of them all.

This time is was a short cruise which covered our 51st Wedding Anniversary, so we chose a Q4 Penthouse Butler Suite. Cannot understand why it is called a Penthouse, it was just a normal nice suite, not massive and infact the right hand side of the bed was less than 2 foot away from the wall and for the firts time we had a lady butler, in our opinion she was not as good as our previous male butlers. The Queens Grill restaurant was as usual really excellent and their al la carte menu was truly great.

But the cruise was marred by 2 incidentss, the first was outside of Cunard's control, the weather. Strong winds caused the ship to stay in Amsterdam for 2 nights, not just one, so we were unable to go into Zeebrugge, Cunard did not offer any compensation like even a free glass of wine, nothing at all!.

OK but there was no room around the bed, TV sound didn't work on Chanel 43 broadcasts, it still smelled of varnish.
