Ok after the last 2 disappointing cruises with princess we thought we'd give cunard a go.Def aimed at.a diff market. .only one child on board for first half of cruise (poor bugger was lonely in kids club)

The average age was older and this changed down to around 55 after melb.

Embarkation and disembarking was brilliant.so much more efficient.Food was.great 8 out of 10 the ship was immaculate no leaking roofs and the carpet was stain free and trip over buckets or carpet dryers. The rooms were very good. The mens change room had a sauna which looked out over the sea...didnt have to pay for the expensive spa suite..9/10 and no one used it most of the time i was the only person there. The only downfall was the way they bill you in us dollars and charge your account. Drinks were expensive . Our semillionier in the Britannia dining room was Mysdrago from serbia who was so charming you could take him home. The only other issue was dining in the buffet for lunch or breakfast as there were not enough seating for everyone inside. The entertainment was very good. This cruise was not a booze cruise with everyone just having a nice time relaxing. Its not carnival or princess and doesnt cater for that market. We enjoyed dressing for dinner and whilst some standards were enforced
