Choose a taster cruise as we were unsure of how "stuffy" we would find Cunard to be. We were pleasantly surprised and loved it. Embarkation was very good/efficient. Room Balcony on deck 4; nicely appointed, clean, super bed/pillows, nice to have a decent quality TV for ships information etc. Evening dining was fine, excellent choices and good quality. We preferred the buffet breakfast simply because it was easy, it's nice to have a buffet that isn't chaotic and cramped. The afternoon tea was a little disappointing, we were lucky in that we were already in the Queens Room when they started to lay the tables so we stayed on. Service was a bit slow and the sandwiches (bread) was a little dry. There were queues later on. Nice to have but I wouldn't bother again. Service from the bars could have been much better, on the whole this let down what was and excellent trip. Entertainment was fine and popular. The tender operation in Guernsey was dreadful, we waited an hour from getting a ticket to actually boarding at a time we thought most passengers would have already gone off. It was fine coming back.

Excellent Taster Cruise
