Arrived in port at 6:30 AM. Cunard decided it appropriate to star bunker furlong outside cabins immediately in the wee small hours

Chose this cruise as a quick getaway with my father. The ship itself is beautiful and a testament to great ship design. It’s not the most modern ship but internally in decent shape, cabins nice and well appointed if not they do lack electrical outlets and other modern touches.

As per other reviews, boarding was an odd affair with people held I. The terminal and boarded by seat row. Terminal staff were very helpful and benefit of the doubt would put some of the bottleneck down to rail strikes disrupting arrival times.

First impressions of the ships service were incredible, this quickly went out the window as more passengers boarded.

Cabin Review


Cabin 4176. There is a bit of noise from below, this is a kitchen service area for the Britannia restaurant, but it wasn’t enough to worry me. Great thing is this cabin has a larger than Standard balcony. Very comfortable cabin with an excellent steward.

Port Reviews


Hamburg is a bit of a dump. An average European big city with a real homeless problem. L and general odour if stale urine. Cunard however managed to make a really great excursion out of touring this city. Hamburg cruise port to city is a really easy walk don’t let the cruise line mis-sell you on a transfer. Also Hamburg is outstanding for a fly cruise, city centre to airport is €3.50 take les than half an hour & is amazingly regular
