We chose this cruise because of the port itinerary. We are not that keen on sea days , nor on being on organised ship excursions so it is important to us to have a great list of ports to visit and to be able to do these ports easily on our own. This cruise was perfect for us with 10 ports to visit and 4 sea days.

Embarkation was swift from Civitivecchia. We had spent 2 nights beforehand in Rome and caught the train to the port. Nothing to do with Cunard but the station at Civitivecchia is appalling for travellers with luggage . Poor, seeing as it is one the the major European cruiseports.

Our balcony cabin on Deck 7 was superb, we couldn't fault it and it was beautifully maintained by our cabin steward, Marvin. Plentiful supplies of toiletries throughout our stay.

Port Reviews

Rome (Civitavecchia)

On our own. Visited all major sites . Vatican was a major disappointment solely because of the sheer number of visitors and crowds. A must see sight but hard to see and appreciate because of the huge crowds.

Barcelona

Used hop on hop off bus on 2 of 3 routes. Best one we have used

Corsica (Ajaccio)

Used big Yellow Bus. Cost 10 Euro . Nice trip then walked round town

Villefranche

Tender port. Lovely. Caught train to Monaco . Walked round. Great.

Corfu

Didn't like Corfu but it was rainy

Split

Loved Split. Just caught ships shuttle and walked round

Venice

Used ships launch over 2 days and walked. Bought Venice Museum pass
