Sail Date: Jun 2018
Cabin: Balcony

Out first cruise was with Cunard & were told that "we had started at the top". A couple of subsequent cruises with Celebrity confirmed we were told right.

This was our 5th with Cunard & (for us) it was perfect from start to finish. This company really knows how to look after you & make you feel special. EVERY crew member encountered was charming, cabin immaculate, Britannia restaurant food & service excellent. The modest selection in the nicely panelled upholstered seating Lido self-service restaurant was of no consequence as it seems Cunard does not pander to those who have to eat non-stop ( or lie cheek to cheek on sunbeds glistening with sun oil & perspiration). How different to the Wimpy-like troughs of other ships.

Cunard seemed to have upped their game when it came to evening entertainment in the theatre, professional & well rehearsed save for the occasional screeching female singer.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BB

Immaculate. Not very big but satisfactory for a short voyage. Quiet at all times.

Port Reviews

La Rochelle-La Pallice

Got up early to take the first (free) shuttle bus & enjoyed stroll around the port.

Huge queues later in the day.

St. Peter Port (Guernsey)

Just used tender to make short walking tour of St Peter Port.
