Booked what was our 16th Cruise with Cunard and I have to say this was the one we enjoyed the least and will likely be our last. A new menu was imposed in the Grills which was a real retrograde step. What was once the hall mark of Cunard has now been diluted down way too much. As a result the dining experience was poor. The Atmosphere in the dining room definitely suffered as a result. The passengers who had traveled on the old Qe2 were probably the most disappointed as we know what it used to be like. Cunard used to protect is Brand values fiercely but it seems now the Carnival conglomorate has ground it down. The style and class has definitely gone and we became increasingly exasperated at the continual mercenary attempts to squeeze more money out of the guests at every available opportunity. The world club events and guest cocktail parties were terrible. The line gives you cruise appraisal cards to have your say but in the all time we have been on we have never seen anything improved or added as a result of filling them in. Each time we board there is always something that has been taken away or changed for the worse. To be fair the staff are excellent but clearly they have little control or influence over how things are done. If anything we felt sorry for them particularly the ones with many years service. The shore excursions we did were very expensive and at times chaotic. Catching the tour bus from the Rome on your own tour outside the Marcello theatre was a shambles with buses double parked, people getting lost, coach drivers arguing and being cautioned by police and general chaos! We had previously booked our voyages on the Elizabeth for next year and are going to take a week or two to think about it but will almost certainly cancel them. it means that we lose our deposit but there is no point throwing good money after bad.
