  • Cabin Type: Oceanview

Chose cruise on recommendation. Brittania Outside with Balcony on Deck 4. Cabin nice but not exceptional, shower particularly small. Steward did a good job. Corridors on several of the lower decks were at times smelly and were well in need of re-decoration. Main public areas were much better but our biggest criticism was more related to other guests. Commodore Bar at times almost empty and half the guests snoozing or playing scrabble or other board games. I am 82 but at least I am active. Dinner companions however were excellent, shared table for 6. Main Dining room food mediocre, some very poor quality sourcing of produce, steaks which were uneatable etc. The only credit could be to the dessert kitchen team. Lido Buffet much better but still does not reach the standards of other cruise lines (see below). The much aclaimed ballroom, excellent if you are a professional dancer, must have been made for those who frequent Blackpool and Torquay but not for those who want to just dance close. We did however find during the last couple of days The Yacht Club disco. My partner and I will probably not return to Cunard. I would much rather have the activity and much busier venues on Celebrity Cruise ships also at a somewhat more realistic price,

Cabin Review


Just adequate except for minute shower. My partner did not feel safe in shower and hand washed for duration of cruise. Steward Ariel did a good job.
