Definitely an older crowd, but I appreciated the calm atmosphere and lack of drunk 20-somethings.

This ship is high end; che itin for Ball Themes. Take a masque for the Masquerade Ball. Tux and formal ball gowns are approprtiate almost every night, as tie required almost ery night. Dance partners are available for singles, with dance lessons offered daily to prepare for evening ball theme.

2 formal evenings, one black and white ball and the second on New Year's Eve, everyone made an effort and the ship looked fab on New Year's Eve

Penthouse suite balconys on deck 4 are horizontally larger than those on deck 5.

Late (8:30) seating allows time to dress for dinner without rushing after port, but pushes you to late show. Tea 3:30- 4:30 ends at 4:30 sharp with staff pulling off table linens from around you. Bring printed proof of any promotions to avoid the run around onboard.

While you can just order "tea", they have a fair variety on request, including decaf. This is at all meals, not just Afternoon Tea (which is a must).

Late seating was very late and felt like we did not have time to enjoy the entertainment after dinner.

Several intermediate and outside areas to enjoy the open air and avoid the air-conditioning.

In selecting a cabin, I suggest requesting one in the mid-section of the ship, near the "135's". If your room is in the low digits ("002-040's"), you will have a long walk each day from your cabin to the restaurants. So, 7135 would be preferable to 7004.

Beautiful ship. Just think that it needs to change their entertainment to include guests from other nationality/age.

Only need to improve disembarkation procedures. Entertainment was almost 100%. The group of "soul or rock" music was not a good match for the audience. We left early.

Plan and pay for all you can before the cruise


Sep 13, 2016

Bring a good appetite and some lovely clothes to wear while dining.

If you don't like at least moderate formality (I do), you should look elsewhere. Also, Cunard is not overly kid-friendly (again, a plus for me), not because they are hostile to kids, but because the vibe is very adult.

Take easily rinsed clothes. Launderette inaccessible and very small!

Make sure to have the fish-and-chips in the Golden Lion Pub. This is an "included" venue and is like a London Pub.

Travel using the Queens grill if you can - worth it
