I thought I would share some photographs of the ship taken during the 175th Anniversary Atlantic crossing rather than the itinerary which I have already covered. Not your run of the mill selection, something a little different.

 

Many staterooms were adorned with flags...

And I really like this one, 12 different juices/milks on offer in the Kings Court breakfast buffet...

Were you just passing through the buffet for the purposes of taking a picture.

 

Rodger.

 

Good morning Rodger.

 

You know me too well.

 

However, on this occasion I visited the Kings Court for breakfast on five occasions. Once when I had partied late into the morning and missed the Britannia Restaurant and four on the mornings of port days.

 

I think I have said elsewhere, I was pleasantly surprised. The Kings Court layout isn't as difficult as some make out and now that Cunard have followed Celebrity's lead and stopped the use of trays there is less congestion around the each food station.

 

Add to that the tea station has been separated from the coffee and juices...

...and the whole experience has improved: though I would still prefer table service any day.

 

One area they do beat Celebrity. Your verbal order for freshly cooked eggs goes directly to the chef at the egg station and doesn't require further inquisition as per Celebrity. far more speedy...

One more final point: spot the Marmite...
