Review summary

Thi was our 30. cruise, the 6. with Cunard. So we know all 3 Cunards and our Impression is, this is the best of all 3 Cunards: great places to sit and relax, wonderful outfit, very kindly and helpfully staff, Excellent foods in Restaurant as well as in Lido Buffet-Restaurant. We are shure to cruise again with this ship. Also the Afternoon-Tea-Time was excellent! More choise, better Quality, excellent Sandwiches and sweets. All is excellent ! And we must not wait before. Just in time, we could find a Tablet for four passengers. So If you want to make a pleasure or fun to you or to everybody of your friends, take this ship for the next cruise or book a cruise to have a nice and wonderful cruise, or to see what it means to cruise with a beautiful ocean-liner!

We arrived at 12.30 at Kiel Port and there was a Long snake for embarkation. So we looked to the Queens Village in front of Queen Victoria (only opened for this cruise) and started the embarkation without any time of expectation.
