We chose this cruise because of itinerary,the ship was visiting some places we had not been to before. Cunard is our chosen favourite line for elegance,excellent food and service.Passengers are mainly Brits of a certain age so only a few children,there were however 42 different nationalities on board so it was interesting to meet and speak to people of other countries.

My only adverse comments would be that the prices charged for wine and excursions are excessive.

The evening entertainment is varied and the resident Cunard singers and dancers put on some good shows. Lectures during the day are interesting ,Jennie Bond the former Royal correspondent was well worth listening to and my husband found the art talks very good.

Cabin A2

Excellent cabin,luxurious huge and comfortable bed. Fridge,tea making facilities,good sized balcony perfect to view ports. Dressing gowns,slippers and a dedicated steward to keep it clean and tidy and provide any service you may require.

Port Reviews

Argostoli (Kefalonia)

A nice resort to stroll round. Don't miss the turtles along the waterfront.

Some good shops and a pretty church to look round.


Although crowded Dubrovnik is a lovely place to visit. The view over the roofs from the city walls are lovely. Lots of restaurants to eat at.


What can you say about Venice that hasnt already been said. It is magical even when crowded,the Doges Palace is a good place to visit,reduced prices for over 65s. Also the Basilica is a must . Just wander round,soak up the atmosphere and explore,you never know what you might come across.


Corfu is very popular and therefore busy.Well worth walking round,there are some good designer shops but to get some spectacular views go into the old fort ,reductions for seniors . There is also the Durrell connection and the novelty of the cricket pitch!


The approach to Kotor is impressive ,very much like Norwegian fiords. The walled town is interesting to walk round,with many squares and cafes. A nice church to visit,if you are lucky you may see the local folk dancers. If you are really fit you can climb over 1000 steps to another church and fort.


Cagliari was probably the least interesting of our visits. We did walk up to the cathedral and took the lift up to the terrace overlooking the port and surrounds. A few remains of fortifications are on view. Some good shops in main thoroughfare.
