  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

This is our first cruise with Cunard and it was excellent in most ways. We have sailed with TUI Marella and P&O before and we expected Cunard to to head and shoulders better....it wasn’t though. Now that’s not to say it was poor, because that’s not true....it was wonderful, but it just says to us that tge other cruise lines are also good. The quality of food and in particular the amount of free-space was welcomed and certainly different to what we found on the rather cramped and poorly organised Azura. The Q.V. is lovely and all staff were helpful, polite and professional. Before going we were concerned that there may be a “class system”....but there certainly wasn’t, we felt very welcomed and the service and food in food in the Lido Restaurant was wonderful.....one very small point, they could do with a few more waiters offering beverages in there. Not everyone wants to dine in tv more formal venues, borne out by the fact that tge Lido Restaurant was always busy, but not cramped....to have an offer of a drink would have been nice. Entertainment was fine, we have seen better productions on TUI and P&O but the shows were fine. The outside acts were fabulous however....We are very confused why we were charged a daily service charge, PLUS, if we had a drink from the bar we had a further service charge added.....it’s like a double insult!.....other than these very small points, it was outstanding and we would recommend to everyone.

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin BE 6050

Wonderful cabin, beatifully maintained and attended to by Dennes who was a lovely lovely man.....nothing was too much trouble and he was so polite. The cabin was very much a home from home atmosphere.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

St. Peter Port (Guernsey)

What a boring place.....worth a day visit, but had we not have hired a car there was literally nothing to do here.....some may like it, but for us it was far too quiet

Rotterdam

Walked off and around the town. Would have been nice to have had more info on things to do local to the ship....such as bike hire etc......it is Holland after all

Brugge (Bruges)

We arranged our own transfer using an on line provider who also operate from the port. It was a fraction of the cost that the CUNARD excursion would have been. The transfer was fabulous and excellent value. Bruges itself was fabulous, our only criticism is that we didn’t have long enough time there. It would be good to have this venue as an Overnight on board type. Worth a visit.

Cherbourg

We have been to Cherbourg before on a P&O cruise. Lovely place, weather was superb
