    Coffee/tea making in the cabin

    They are cheap for Q.G Staterooms when you are paying top Doller IE,$1,500per person per night NCL has the same type of machines in there balcony staterooms But when you have a Haven Suite you have a proper coffee machine that is plumbed in with a Steamer and 6 blends of Coffee in fact a large drawer full of refills Its simply not good enough for Cunard's image and standards to be paying 1st rate prices for bottom rate goods.

    Coffee Machines are only available in Grills Staterooms and they are cheap and nasty no steamer very basic the kind that you can get at a very cheap market.

    Cunarder Year Book 2018/2019

    I received the Cunarder yesterday with a Seasons greetings card and today received the Cunard Yearbook .I used to get it regularly until last year then it stopped, The only clue to why it has resumed is that Cunard UK has just had a clear-out of World Club members for UK members. and others have not.

    On board QE

    Just of the 2 nightery and apart from new carpets all-round visually nothing has changed, They have a new spa Franchise and the new Shops are the same apart from the staff in some of the shops which now are Chinese and their understanding of English is not that good, The Grills top Terrace the padded Chairs some of the covers are badly stained and some very Frayed and the paintwork is a disgrace chipped paintwork on the stairs to deck 10 ,Bars out of stock of everything or still in bond New Carpets still bedding in lots of fluff everywhere.

    I am on the 2 nighter and I am sure we will Depart from the Mayflower Terminal as your cruise will.
  12. I have noticed that the ship has left Brest and will dock in Southampton tomorrow berth 101 then move to berth 106 in the evening but Cunard still has her docking on Friday at the Q.E. Terminal but that Terminal still has problems with the Air Bridge

    Cunard ships and LNG

    Carnival are at present converting the Ocean Terminal in Southampton for refuelling their ships with L.N.G so all Cunard have to do is put converters in to the ships so no need for any new ships.
  15. Deck 10 from the railings that over look the Lido pool starboard side up to and including Churchills Cigar Lounge there is cover outside Churchill's and amidships by the Grills entrance with a Powered Door so if he uses a Wheelchair its easier
