Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Princess Suite

As an experienced cruiser with Cunard (34 cruises) I feel able to comment,

Firstly I was travelling in Princess Grill. The cabin was fine albeit needing a new carpet or at least a good wash, the attendant was helpful and a good worker

The ship itself was clean and tidy in all public areas and a credit to the brand

Cabin Review

Princess Suite

Princess grill cabins are centrally located ( best position for lifts and launderette). Adequate size and ample closet space. Having been in Q4 I can say in my opinion Princess is a better layout and whilst the balcony is smaller I prefer Princess. We have had Q1 but it was too big for 2 people. Princess provides access to deck 11 ie the Grills lounge.

Cabin has what you would expect ,bed, chair, settee and en suite with a bath, good luck to those who cant lift their legs over to get into the shower over bath.

Port Reviews

Seville

Interesting place with loads of shops and lots of walking. There is a supermarket at the top of the town near the market. Nice ice cream and loads of pavement cafes

Barcelona

Los Ramblas is the main shopping street, a long walk to it and up the street but worth it at a slow pace. Street performers abound, and of course lots of tourists. We were there on a super hot day. Public toilets don't seem to exist but there are lots of cafes etc ( avoid loo's in Macdonalds because they are on the 3rd floor ( lift broken during our visit). Always an interesting place is Barcelona, churches are beautiful and shopping abundant

Monaco (Monte Carlo)

The hottest day in the world it seemed, a great place for a visit. Tender port. Fairly long walk to the Casino which is a tourist magnet. Up the top of a hill which seems a long way from the tender point when you are there. Loads of flashy cars and very upscale shops. Casino magnificent and a nice café inside for a coffee and an ice cream and air conditioning. Enjoyed a flutter on the slots, sadly the bank broke us. Great day out, maybe not needing to go there again for a while but enjoyed it

Gibraltar

we have been here a few times, don't like the taxi arrangements to take you to the town,cruise buses were bad enough. Town interesting for its shops problem is that it is always a short stop in terms of time. There are public loo;s however
