Luxuriate in your own secluded haven of approximately 508-771 square feet, featuring marble bathrooms and whirlpool baths. An expansive private balcony commands impressive sea views, perfect for sipping champagne or curling up with one of the books on offer. Refrigerators are stocked to your preferences; your concierge or butler will gladly attend to your every whim.
The suite itself was, as you may expect, first rate - spacious, well equipped and very well serviced. It is at the stern with a wrap around balcony, which we made as much use of as possible. There was one unhappy event. On our return from shore in Guatemala we found a large piece of equipment, which normally overhangs the side of the ship, was now at the rear of our balcony and therefore partially blocking our view! Not happy at this point. Apparently it had been moved for safety during the canal transit, which was understandable, but would not be relocated until the next port (Aruba) in 5 days time. Even less happy at this point. Apparently this happens on each transit so our argument was that it should have been flagged up at the time of booking and not leave it to the onboard team to handle. Cunard onshore team please note!! That said, we had to adapt; it spoilt one aspect of an otherwise excellent cruise and the matter was dealt with onboard very well by the Customer Services Manager (Ilena) Read entire member review >>
Great room as stated above, with a balcony that stretched around the side and rear of the ship. The balcony has 2 sun-lounges, 2 reclining deck chairs, a large table and 2 small tables.
The room had a king bed, large lounge suite, separate dressing room or "make-up" room, bathroom with jacuzzi spa, separate shower, twin basins, and marble decor.
TV, DVD, fridge stocked with complimentary drinks, plenty of cupboards space and drawers, nightly turndown service, and a personal butler and concierge should you require anything. Read entire member review >>
5101 - lovely spotless large cabin, in the middle of the middle we had very calm weather but a good cabin for rough weather I would have thought, large balcony, separate basin and toilet, walk in shower, large whirlpool bath, butlers sink, 2 TVs, DVD player games etc. The cabin is close to the main lifts and an easy walk to the public decks but for all that it was vey quietVery comfortable bed, free soft drinks, fresh fruit, superfast butler service for tea, coffee etc. This cabin was everything Cunard said it would be highly recommended Read entire member review >>
8163 is a Q5 Suite at the Aft of the ship. It has a fantastic balcony that would be great in good weather. Especially in the Caribbean where the sun could be enjoyed for long hours. The Suite being at the aft of the ship gets quite bumpy in rough seas. We had 16 foot waves for several nights on the cruise to Hawaii and back and it was difficult to sleep. It was also difficult to walk some nights when the seas were rough. I did find it much nicer to stay mid ships during the rough weather where it was remarkable stable. The butler service and housekeeping was fantastic. The room is well kept with the furniture looking new. The bed linens were nice and of high quality. Closet space for the room was very adequate. A split closet for shirts / pants, and a double closet for longer clothing items, and lots of drawer space. About 6 days into the cruise I found large drawers at the end of each bed (under the bed) which I didn't have to use but they could come in very handy. Luggage fit nicely under the beds and there were two desk spaces. I would have re arranged the room to have the sitting area with large sofa facing out the balcony door instead of at the window in the room but just my preference. I never heard a neighbor or heard a door close outside of the entryway of the room. Very quiet room except for the 5 am placement of a few deck chairs on the Lido deck above. But I did note that the staff were very careful to do it as quietly as possible. This cabin had a door to the balcony that locked. I believe it needed to be locked at night and when not in the cabin as it looked very easy for someone to step onto the balcony from above and next door. Just as a precaution. Over all a nice cabin but for a Queen's Grill level 5 Suite, not good placement due to the natural bumping about the aft of the ships goes through in rough weather. Read entire member review >>
