We have been on many cruises and several cruise lines. Celebrity is our most common thise days but we wanted to be on a Queen and the opportunity presented itself.
Cruise was dressier than we usually go, but we were prepared. We had formal and costume ware, although we were not particularly taken with the balls. If you like to dance, you'll quite like all of that. We did enjoy the spectacle.
We choose this particular cruise because we were in Europe for business and this itinerary fit our schedule and went to new places for us. The overlapping of cruises as Cunard does gives it more flexibility although we lost some people we were friendly with halfway through.
