We chose Cunard again because we simply enjoy the gorgeous art deco interiors, superb British service, formality, dress codes, food and entertainment. We did a transatlantic crossing on the Queen Mary 2 some years ago and simply loved it.

That being said, we recognize that not everyone values such an experience. Cunard is NOT the line for you if you want ice skating rinks, climbing walls, go cart tracks, water slides, video arcades, etc. It is NOT the line if you want to go to breakfast in your pajamas, lunch in your bathing suit and dinner in your shorts t-short and flip flops. It is not the line if you want to be onboard with four, five or six thousand of “your closest friends”. The Queen Elizabeth holds about 2000 guests.

However, it IS the line for what have have experienced as exceptional service, great food options, a dress code (that should be more enforced!), “black tie gala nights”, a variety of more subdued but excellent entertainment (pianist Bela Duke simply OWNED the keyboard and was a highlight of our cocktail hours). The interior of all the Cunard ships, as mentioned, are “art deco” looking much more like the interior of the Titanic from the movies than some uber modern designs. It is certainly a throwback to a simpler and perhaps, more genteel time, that we greatly appreciate. No one can deny that the design is anything but gorgeous. But it’s style may not be to your liking but it certainly is to ours.

Cabin Review

As stated above, our cabins were excellent…..great condition, decor, bedding and service.
