We chose this cruise because it ticked all our boxes. It went from Athens to Venice. It stopped at Dubrovnik and Split. For me it meant seeing the Croatian coast. This cruise was everything we expected it to be. We were first time cruisers. I had to ask the cleaner if we paid for meals. I was a complete newbie. For me the Lido was fine. It was fantastic to us. We had just completed touring Eastern Europe with carry on luggage. What a wonderful time too. We had see south western England, Berlin and Dussledorf and then Prague and Budapest so this just fitted in fine. We did not go into the flash restaurant as our given time was 8.30 pm and that was too late for us. We also saw the menu on offer and decided that the buffet was just fine and it was. I really enjoyed both the swimming pool and spa. It was all good. I thought that the excursions were expensive and perhaps not worth it. Yet we had a wonderful experience at Dubrovnik on tuk tuks going around there. Worth it We were on this for a week and it worked well for us. Our first experience and it was all positive.

Late summer holiday with family at a time and price suitable for all of us. We have sailed with Cunard 8 times and this was the best so far...excellent ports of call, food, entertainment, stateroom cleanliness and service. On board the highlights were the excellent musical entertainment with harpist, strong quartet, pianists and the Queens Room orchestra. We love to dance and were delighted that in the first week Eugene and Darya from the Ukraine were on board to teach Jive and Cha Cha, while in the second week, Wilfred and Ilona from Gernany dazzled with their Viennese Waltz. In the middle of their show dance, Ilona lost one of her shoes, but carried on dancing as though nothing had happened...what professionals! The highlights of the ports were: - Rome, where we hired a private taxi from smartcruisetours.com, with our patient and knowledgeable driver Christian taking us to Circus Maximus then onto a great view of Palatine Hill, a visit to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, then onto Piazza di Spagna, after that the Trevi Fountane, followed by a visit to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona before returning to Civitavecchia. - Monte Carlo with a two hour bus tour of all the sights - Kotor in Montenegro, which was outstanding with a beautiful bay, stunning architecture, cheeky cats and lovely restaurants. - Barcelona and Venice which need no description - always new sights in little side streets and shops to discover. All helped by clear blue skies and a cool breeze for walking around and on deck sunbathing. We also saved money by not buying any of the overpriced tours, spa treatments or wines, purchasing the soft drinks package and bringing on our own wine for consumption on our joined balconies.

My wife, daughter and I had a fly cruise for the second time this year. Our first was at Easter with P&O, ending at Venice. This time we started at Venice with Cunard aboard Queen Victoria. The ship is very elegant and the crew members were most helpful. I suppose the fact that it appeals to an older clientele would account for the activities (most how to keep body and soul together) and the music (for those who had given up the struggle). I am 68 but there didn't seem much for the baby boomers! P&O can be a bit Butlins at time but at least there is a choice to take or leave it. The deck of Queen Victoria was eerily quiet and desolate in the evenings. The big difference, which is more than a matter of personal taste, was the transfer arrangements. The P&O flight was a charter from Gatwick and after handing over the cases at the check in, we next saw them outside of our cabins - job done! What a lovely relaxing way to start a holiday. Cunard provided a BA charter (much better aircraft) but missed the opportunity to provide a trouble free transfer! The cases had to be claimed at the Venice carousel, which is never a happy experience, but watching the belt go around for seventy five minutes was a nightmare. I assume the elderly passengers were deciding to wait until the belt cleared. Guess what! If you do not take your case, it never clears because the sensor will not introduce any more cases. I saw one case go around twenty six times! Once we claimed them successfully we had to leave them again just a few steps further on. That was a pointless and stressful exercise, which clearly could have been avoided. We did wonder if we would ever get to see Venice, but we did just about manage it. Cunard - you know we have a choice and you have a great deal to offer, so please make the transfer a smooth and trouble free experience! I suspect we will think twice in future unless the embarkation port is Southampton. Read Less
