I have used White Star for 14 of my 15 Cunard Voyages. I swear by it. I have never had a problem, I get extra insurance too. I think it cost about $350 for a <50lb bag to Hamburg last November and I...

The Commodore Club seems to be very inventive with Martini's with many unusual flavors offered. As JWB is my tipple, I cannot assess their quality.

If you book and were assigned a suite or cabin, you get the labels, If you booked a guarantee you have to print your own.

Your muster station will generally be below your Suite. If you are aft, it will likely be the Princess Grill, (I have never seen them use the Queens Grill for muster) mid ship the very large Kings...

WSB, I have been traveling with Cunard since 2004, and the menu has changed but I haven't noticed any reduction in the offerings, which were and still are numerous. Sometime it seems there are too...

Probably so John, but my dyslexia is always getting in my way. Thanks for the correction, Mike.
What a very good idea. Trans Atlantic crossings...
What a very good idea. Trans Atlantic crossings on Queen Mary 2 are the best. First of all she is the only Transatlantic Liner in service, and she will handle the Atlantic like a champ. There will be...

I have been sailing on Cunard for the last 12 years with one or more trips per year with side excursions on NCL, Princess and Carnival. Even in the suite/elite classes those companies cannot hold a...

Sounds like fun, and you can pop into St. Pancras International for a quick Eurostar trip to Paris for Lunch if you choose to.

Windsor Castle is one of those no to be missed places in the UK. I have visited several time, before and after the fire. I especially liked the tour to Queen Mary's Doll House in the Castle, which is...

Other than the separate check in, the 'free internet' and the invitation to the Senior Officers Party, which was held at 11 am on the day their big 'star' speaker was speaking during my last cruise,...

I have not seen this. I get the Cunarder, and the last one came from California.

It would appear that most of your questions have been answered, but here is one more suggestion. If you take a Cunard sponsored tour the ship will not leave with out you. If you go on your own and...

I have been sailing with Cunard for 14 years and it's always USD. If you see the price in dollars it will be about 3/4 GBP. Welcome to the US, I hope you will have a pleasant stay.

My tipple is Johnny Walker Black, which I ask for with a smile and have gotten it all but one time ironically when I was in the Holyrood suite. A call to the hotel manager got that resolved. They...

I am in the US and use a T/A that used to work for Cunard, and has good contacts with them still. She is excellent. I booked with Cunard directly before I went to her and my experience was excellent...

I have stayed in London many times and after 'auditioning' hotels I settled at the Cavendish, Duke St. St.James. It has a Jermyn St address and it is directly behind Fortnum and Mason in Picadilly....

Sorry to hear that you have to queue too. But considering how long it takes to travel internationally either by ship or plane, it really is a small portion of the journey.

Over my work career I have put a couple millions air miles on my back end. Most of my travel was international, and I didn't find the US Customs and Immigration longer or more difficult than Canada,...

You will not get pre-printed labels if you have a Guarantee and the suite has not been assigned before the booklet is prepared.

I love future cruise credits, I just booked an 8 day trans-Atlantic for September, 2019,and my FCC $300 covers my deposit with no further payment until June 28, 2019. If I change my mind the credit...

Cunard gets to take you back to your point of departure, which is why they make a big deal about your passport information. They don't want to have that expense.
They provided no alternatives, I am sorry to say.

I think, this subject has been well covered, as it were. Red and Black Velvet, I think we're getting into smoking jackets here. one question will you wear a Fez with it?

I am of a different thought on the airport transfers. To Newark EWR by all means the coach it's far cheaper than a car service or a taxi, To LaGuardia LGA or JFK, it depends on the number traveling...
