A splendid cruise, only marred by the utter shambles at embarkation. Cunard must share the blame for that with the Dubai authorities. Our first time on Queen Mary 2, we found a ship which sailed really well and had acres of space on board for passengers. The deck layout was a little confusing to begin with, the “half decks” taking a little understanding but over three weeks we had plenty of time to find our way round.
The food was good and the service excellent. This is one of our main reasons for choosing to cruise with Cunard, we appreciate the service which couldn’t be bettered. Our other reason for continually returning to Cunard is that we like the more formal dress code which sets them apart from other cruise lines. However it is a little disappointing to note that it is not always strictly enforced. In all though a very memorable cruise, some fabulous ports of call and thankfully really good weather excepting our final port of Hong Kong where we had two days of rain. We have some unfinished business there!
