I would agree the Jetty at the new Southampton Harbour Hotel is pretty good. There is also Oxfords in Oxford St, Ennios (Italian), or if you like Indian - Katie’s in Oxford St is good as well.

I joined the choir on a QV cruise last year. I have never sung with a choir before and don’t read music. I think we had 5 x 1 hour rehearsals and then performed on the stairs in the lobby. It was...

This is a very interesting thread.
I am struck by
(a) how many people will sail on various lines rather than sticking with one
(b) how many people ( me included) do not want to repeat an NCL...

We cruised on QV twice last year and didn't receive survey after either cruise.
Shame as although both cruises were excellent, we did have some comments. Maybe Cunard aren't really interested in...

We have tried both. We had the Orissa suite on the Oceana and booked Queens Grill on QV.
IMO, there is absolutely no comparison. On Oceana, our so called Butler could not have been more...

Theoretically you could make a 12.30 flight but the traffic from Southampton to Heathrow is unpredictable at best - could be as little as 1.5 hours but could easily be much more.

Could it just be the Eurodam? We had a really disappointing Caribbean cruise aboard her about 3 years ago where many aspects of the cruise were just underwhelming. I agree about the Neptune Lounge....

Please don't worry - the ship is big enough and there are enough passengers aboard for you to find soul mates. Certainly there will be an element who will look down their noses, there...
