Okay, first things first - the very worst embarkation experience in 40 years of cruising. Brooklyn's Red Hook terminal is small, over-crowds easily, and was understaffed. We stood on line for two solid hours. Horrible.

Regarding my title, please leave behind any ideas of 21st century cruising. Cunard is firmly rooted in a prior age - and that is good and bad - depending on expectations.

The ship can best be compared to a floating museum or University at Sea. The entertainment is populated with lectures and talks. Even the onboard planetarium 'show' is like a sixth grade field trip. I felt like I was back in college. Bring a book and find a quiet nook.
