Sail Date: Dec 2017
Cabin: Balcony

We chose this cruise having previously travelled with celebrity and expecting the Cunard name to be synonymous with quality.

It seems that the name Cunard was acquired but most of the quality of service and cache associated with the name was lost.

The buffet food was excellent but in all honesty was the only area other than the general style of the ship, that came even close to surpassing that which was experienced on the celebrity cruise we took in the Autumn.

Cabin Review


Smaller cabins than celebrity.

TV choice extremely limited, with no pay per view service or movie channels, again not nearly as good as celebrity.

No automatic replenishment of shower products.

Other guests booked the same type cabins on the same deck and within days of each other and paid £3k less on a £7k cruise

Very disappointing generally and celebrity experience was so much better.
