Previous Cunard experience on Queen Victoria and sailing back home instead of flying.
The relaxation of being aboard for 7 days without having to get up and out for excursions. Looking for a truly relaxing vacation being treated royally. These are the reasons we needed a Cunard vacation. We were not disappointed.
Nothing, really nothing, went awry. The embarkation process was amazingly smooth. We boarded the ship and about a half hour later our luggage arrived. This proved to be just the preview of how things were to play out for the rest of the trip.
I prefer the back of the ship. Aside from that, this cabin is great. My wife LOVES the closet space. A large walk in closet with shelves and poles to handle the many hangers needed. There is also a closet when you walk in the cabin.
As you enter the cabin you walk into the bar area. A lit, glass enclosed section with Waterford glasses made just for Cunard. A bar area, looks like marble or granite, for teas, a coffee maker, underneath is a stocked refrigerator with beer and soft drinks, all included.
Next it's a sitting area. A desk and chair along with another cushioned chair with ottoman. A large TV hangs on the wall.
There is a bench at the foot of the bed. A glass table in front of the bench.
A side table with drawers on the wall underneath a large mirror.
A very comfortable king size bed with a padded headboard. Two night stands with lamps.
In the aforementioned walk in closet, there is a vanity with a large mirror on the wall.
There are British, European and American outlets throughout the cabin. A couple of each.
The bathroom has a little wall separating the commode from the sink area. A large Villroy and Bosch sink with mirror. The typical outlet for electric shavers. Shelving on both sides and spacious vanity area.
The fully functional Jacuzzi tub. Yes I tried it. The jets are strong. The multifunctional shower head is wonderful. A rain setting, another that deploys 6 moving streams that created a massage on my back and neck that was very relaxing.
Generally very spacious and roomy.
The deck was large enough for 2 chairs and one ottoman. A storage bin for the cushions.
