We had a fabulous time on this Northern Lights cruise and readers can look up my Live From thread on the Cunard boards for more detail.

We sail with a toddler which is unusual for Cunard but their kids club is great. Our child is under 2 so we have to remain with her in the kids club during the day but between 6 and 11pm, they put out travel cots and you can leave your sleeping child while you head out for the evening. You get issued with a pager when you drop off your child and must return if they wake and the staff are unable to resettle them. This is a great service and is included in the price.

Embarkation at Mayflower Terminal was smooth. There was no queue at check in but a bit of a queue for security. The security queue kept moving though and we were on board swiftly. It always feels like coming home when we step on a Cunard ship so got settled quickly, visited our muster station and headed to the Lido for a snack.

Cabin Review

Balcony, obstructed view

Standard cruise ship cabin. Plenty of space for two adults and a travel cot for a toddler. Room was well cared for and scrupulously clean. Plenty of storage room with two long wardrobes, shelves, bedside tables and drawers under the bed.

Bathroom was clean and a reasonable size. I know a lot of people don't like shower curtains but it is much preferred when you are bathing a toddler in a baby bath.
