Liked the itinerary - which unfortunately was changed - once we had boarded. Apparently Cunard were well aware that the ship had a cracked propeller -so our 15 night cruise was changed to include a three day stay in Cadiz - in a dry dock. As the ship was off next on a lengthy ‘ round the world ‘ trip - why not fit the repair in to that cruise ? We were told by the Captain that it was a rare opportunity to see the ship’s hull - sadly we were kept well away from that area. We also suffered from a ‘ metallic clanging ‘ all night which seemed to be coming from the storage warehouse below our cabin - 1107. A fact reported by previous occupants - that the pursuers office flatly denied - it effected several of the cabins in this area - confirmed by other guests. A token ‘ fiddle ‘ with our window surround produced a little pile of rust !

Cunard are certainly losing the good will of their regular passengers with this tired old ship.

The food quality was not as good as it once was - the entertainment only average and the guest lectures have deteriorated - though “ Midge Ure “ was a ‘ shining light ‘-

Cabin Review


The “ Hobbit Pod “ designed for children and not adults ( shower room ) - apart from the very narrow beds - no problems
