A maiden voyage! Not really.

I have talked to number of passengers – both from the Grills and Britannia – and we all agree on one thing:-

“This is no different to any other Cundard Cruise”

In fact, the maiden problems have made is slightly less value for money.

It has taken till today to have decent pictures on the Television, most of the on-board printing is either poorly done,
late arriving or not done at all. The television schedule for the first week arrived on the last day of the schedule.
What is due on TV for the rest of the cruise is still a mystery.

Service is just about getting into line. It has been like a new football team – Premiership Players but not yet a team.

All in all we have all paid full price for this journey, waited in anticipation of something different, something special.
… and still waiting.

Nothing spectacular about being on board – no celebration mood. In fact the special cocktail parties for the long
term travellers of Cunard are so packed as to be uncomfortable.

The President of Cunard in on board – I do hope his fellow travellers in the top priced areas of the ship tell him of the
lack of ‘surprise’ elements.

A good ship, very clean and tidy. Excellent food and, as is usual for Cunard, average entertainment.
(The singer last night was good but had to apologies for her shocking publicity around the ship. She said that
she considered not wearing make up on stage in the hope she would be recognised !!)
