Sail Date: Jul 2017
Cabin: Balcony

Norway and Iceland have been on our bucket list for quite a while and the ports certainly didn't disappoint. Same couldn't be said for the cruise after our great time in the Med on Queen Vic two years ago. Is it just the different ship or is Cunard being Carnivalised?

Cabin and attendant were great but just about everything else was understaffed, under quality and at times under sufferance.

Dining and meal service in Britannia was rushed and off hand, food quality and presentation not of Cunard standard. In the end we retreated to the Lido at night where at least you could set your own pace. Drinks, especially wines, were expensive and there wasn't a decent cup of coffee on the ship.
