We enjoyed our May transatlantic venture, but the weather was not the best.   The sea conditions were fair, but the temperature was cold and the conditions foggy five of six days.   The ship is an historical treasure with many references/photos/artifacts to Cuanard's war time past.    The lectures and siminars covered educational topics and the speakers were well versed on their subjects.    The staff services and food met our expectations.  We would recommend this ship and a transaltantic cruise with one caveat - go in the middle of the season so you can enjoy the pools and outside activities.  Spending seven days cope inside could make for a long trip.  One more thing to consider for men, the ship's dinner venue is more formal than most other cruise lines.   A sport coat or suit is required at the evening dinner table and jeans/shorts are not considered appropriate attire after 6PM. 

Ship Quality
Very established.
Food and Dining
The food was very good.
Service and Staff
Very professional and well attired to fit the Cunard standards.
Same Vegas style dancers and singers. The tenor and magic performer were entertaing.
Children's Programs n/a
Onboard Activities
Good if you enjoy siminars on the Titantic and other disasters. Bad if you enjoy outside activities and the weather does not cooperate.
Destinations and Excursions
It was a transtlantic trip - one stop
Cabin / Stateroom
It was similar in size to most cruise line balcony staterooms.
Southampton (London), England
We had a long delay in boarding the ship. The evening fireworks celebrating the 10 year anniversary was enjoyable.
New York, New York
Same experience as encountered on other cruise ships.


It sure beating flying across the ocean on an airplane and experiencing jetlag. Additionally, the cost was cheaper than a one-way ticket on a plane.
