This was our first Cunard Cruise, we had high hopes: ship looks stylish, cabin comfortable, embarkation smooth. Drinks are seriously overpriced and service charges do not reflect the level of service delivered. on arrival we had wine but only one glass, no teaspoons for coffee and not enough milk. Food options are very limited compared to P&O and food is rather bland, unimaginative and repetitive, more reminiscent of mediocre English golf club/pub food than fine dining. The Lido grill is reminiscent of a busy hospital canteen where food sits out a bit too long, lots of very rude entitled people pushing in whilst you try and get something, not classy!
Grill level passengers paying more seem to get the best attention and the hierarchical nature of Cunard doesn't really sit well.
QV does not sail well, even in the slightest sea she seems to struggle, becoming unstable. Clientele is mostly elderly southern English, many spending much of the day eating and sleeping in public: not classy!
