Enjoyed the trivia games, bingo and great food. The service was impeccable. The stops were great, but I was disappointed that we didn't land in Madeira due to high waves preventing the tender from landing, but the fireworks were fantastic. Originally, this was supposed to be a docking port, but it changed before the cruise. Really good lecturers on the royal family and Cunard history.
let me start with they told us to meet them in the wrong place ! ports times changed daily! food was not good in most of the places food was very BLAND they gave you to eat! the duty free and gift shop over charge twice as much if not more.and not a lot of things to choose from. exchange rate was the same for the whole 11 days. tv was a few shows shown over and over everyday. internet was not cheap. ELEVATORS were not marked clear how to get to all DECKS! port times were very short. very limted things to do everday. trip was setup for MUCH OLDER GROUP OF PEOPLE! staff was good. and ship is kept very clean. have to pay for soda and have to wait a long time to get it. and if you don't carry you card with you 24/7 you will not get it or anything else.
Traveling in Queen's Grill was the best cruising experience ever, even though we had the lowest category Q6. From the check-in we simply walked aboard. The suite was huge and we enjoyed the included bar set-up with wine and a bottle of Bailey's. When the wine was gone, they brought a new bottle. The soft drink supply in our room "mini-bar" was re-stocked every morning. Our butler brought canapés each evening and tea time was perfect. We only did the tea time once because we ate too much! The staff aboard was friendly and very professional at every turn. The only negative was an error on our bill the last evening.
We shall return to Cunard in the not-to-distant future.
