Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2018
  • Destination: Transatlantic
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

transatlantic cruise -from New York to Southampton, then back to New York.

We were impressed with the entertainment program - Royal Cunard Theatre company - dances & singing -from North American, South American, Russia, all around the world.

Special guests -Laura Magnn- soprano, Gary Lovini - violinist, Lynn Trefzger -vocal Illusion, Annette Wardell - the stunning show of favorites from stage screen & opera, Roy Locke - the magic of the Musicals, Amethyst's Paul & Kathryn present "Alchemy" -a show filled with Medleys & musical mayhem, pianists Maria Garzon, Daniel Johnson.

Throughout the ship there were musical programs -guitarist Paul Garthwaite ,pianist - Ferry P Bedi ,Sunrise String Quartet from Ukraine , Harpist Laura Szabo

Everyday between 3.30 -4.30 pm there is tea time in the Queen's Room ,with different musical performance.

Throughout the day there were different lectures - Giles Ramsay - on history & literature Jacki Hill Murphy -on traveling the length of the River Amazon & Siberia,Colin Hobbs on History & supersonic adventure, Derek Tedder on journalism, Suzannah Lipscomb on witchraft & England's Reformation.

Embarkation went smoothly.

Disembarkation - was a big chaos.The ship was delayed by 5 hours , due to emergency problem -a helicopter came to pick up a passenger 2 days prior to disembarkation day to a hospital in New Foundland.

ports & shore excursions - well organized

complain- disembarkation was delayed by 5 hours , passengers waited in different lounges from 9.00 am to 12.00 noon , without any snack or drinks , no compensation .

Cabin Review

Cabin BB 5253

nice & clean

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

New York (Manhattan)

just transfer from the airport (Newark) to the ship - satisfactory


mainly tour of the cathedral, the rest -on our own walking around the city center.

I enjoyed the onboard activities, especially the musical program - the show, dances in the

evening. Cunard has their own members - they perform wonders - do dances from different countries -like Russian, Ukraine, Latin, Argentian US, Great Britain.

The food is wonderful, a variety of choices - during breakfast, lunch & dinner.

I also the tea time 3.30-4.30 in the Queen's Room, accompany with various musical groups.

The staff is wonderful all over the ship - very friendly, efficient, hardworking.

We are happy with our cabin -make us feel very homely. The room service people work very

hard cleaning the cabin twice daily.
