Easter is here again and this time two years ago, my husband, daughter and I were relaxing aboard Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth , cruising for 6 weeks on 2 sectors of the World Cruise.
As is usual on Cunard, no expense was spared in the lavish decorations that were made with real chocolate Easter eggs.
Everything looked and smelt too good to be true…
We were lucky enough to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the galleys where we caused a traffic jam in the Pastry Section…
Because we came across just a few Easter eggs that had our jaws open in awe…
And then we came across this sign…
But that didn’t stop us believing we would still be treated with an Easter feast by these wonderful staff of chefs…
Until, on Easter Sunday morning, we found these in our stateroom…
… these tiny eggs, that fit into the palm of my hand, were sadly not made by the lovely Cunard chefs and were past their use-by date too.
Have you had an Easter (or other holiday) that wasn’t what it was cracked up to be?...

We actually travelled on 2 sectors of the World Cruise - 42 nights - and apart from an incident with a mentally ill relative the trip was marvellous. We met people we had travelled with on Cunard previously and met new friends who happen to live close by in Australia, with whom we keep in touch.
