The Aurora is a lovely ship. The facilities are excellent.The kids club "The Reef" was a real stand out for us as our children loved it and wanted to be there all the time it was open. The staff in the Reef were really wonderful with the children and the activities and programs kept them busy and happy. This really made the holiday such a good one for everyone in the family! We had a four berth ...

As seasonal cruisers, we decided on the Cunard Queen Victoria due to its wonderful itinerary to the French Polynesian Islands plus Australia and New Zealand. We had not visited these ports before. I was a bit leery that the ambience on the ship would be too stuffy and too formal but it was not as formal as I had envisioned. We had a rough beginning since we were due to embark in LA on the ...

Yes, the ship is magnificent. It is a magnificent structure, with a grand and beautiful fitout in the public areas that makes you feel very special. The facilities onboard are generally first class EXCEPT FOR THE INTERNET which had over 300 people screaming with frustration at its inadequacy and dropout rate. Considering that we were supposed to be on a five star ship, the internet could only ...

Boarded the QE one night after leaving the Star Princess on which we had just had a great Mexico cruise. The QE and the way things operate differ some what to most other lines we have sailed with. Our first cruse with Cunard took a few day,s to get used to, but all good and we sure did enjoy the cruise. Found the main restaurant great for diner .Outstanding presentation and food each night at ...

Having read a review by Bruce Kubik about his experience on this cruise ,I can agree totally with several major point he has raised about this cruise .My husband and I have been on QE2 , until a serious incident in April 2000, when an umbrella which was not fastened down as we left Miami port, hit my husband and knocked him out as we left the dock. So here we were trying out Cunard again on a new ...

Embarkation at San Francisco was not too well organized. As everyone joining Queen Victoria (over 1000 passengers) seemed to arrive at the same time, the queue started on the pavement well outside the terminal building. after about an hour, we arrived on board just in time to have some lunch. Our suite was spotless and we were well looked after for the whole cruise by our butler and cabin ...

Our cruise on Queen Victoria was one sector of the ship's 2010 World Cruise, ie San Francisco to Auckland, New Zealand. We have just booked another cruise (Venice to Fort Lauderdale) for later this year and on looking at the reviews on this forum have been absolutely staggered at the degree of negative responses to Cunard and its ships. It almost seems that some travellers simply set ...
