We decided on Cunard as P&O have gone so far downhill,it’s not an option anymore. We are lucky enough to have suites when we cruise and boy do Cunard treat you well. The cabin at the back of the ship was clean and spacious. We dined in the queens grill,where you have your own table and nobody else ever sits there,it’s yours for the duration.The waiter we had was second to none and the more we got to know him,the more we had a great laugh with him.The food was excellent, I pre ordered as I’m pescatarian but also have a wheat intolerance,they did however slip up once and gave me a naan bread,which when I asked if it was wheat free,the waiter came over and whisked it off my plate,they couldn’t apologise enough,I think the chef was given a talking to but neither my husband or myself ever had a bad meal. Even the buffet was excellent,we had lunch there some days,again,on P&O it was a battlefield,I think some people think the food is going to run out and it was horrific,the shoving and pushing but on Cunard there was none of that,it was a delight,just a different clientele altogether. Being in a queens grill you also have a private bar area,which is fabulous,free coffee and usually plenty of room,we used this a lot Drinks are a little overpriced but when you add up the free coffee and the complimentary drinks in your cabin then it does even out,we got as much bottled water as we wanted and there was soft drinks and lager too The ship itself was spotless,not much in the way of shops unfortunately,in fact there was very little We have already booked for next Christmas and New Year and can’t wait

We decided on Cunard as P&O have gone so far downhill,it’s not an option anymore.

We are lucky enough to have suites when we cruise and boy do Cunard treat you well.

The cabin at the back of the ship was clean and spacious.
