It is available if you request in advance. My hb asked for it - the first time he did the Maitre'D came over and asked if he wanted it? (strange that as he had already requested it from the waiter)....

It is probable that Cunard 'factor in' the grats when charging for World Cruises which makes massive sense, as a grats bill for approx $1400 per person at the end of a trip would be eye watering!...

Thank you Philsmum for your post, I too don't like 'complaining' about Cunard but as this is a forum for cruisers to discuss experiences, both positive and negative, I often share mine just to...

Yes, I thought that the menu link I gave was an old one, but it is one I remember from my first QG trip in 2012. I did say in my op that I wasn't sure of the date but it was the only one I found on...

I am really surprised that nobody else has had similar problems. We were three couples sitting alongside each other but on tables for two (never met before). Both of the other couples were...
Queens Grill Food
Just got back from a trip on the QE, staying in a Queens Grill Suite. I was very impressed that on arrival we had a bottle of Vueve Clicquot champagne on ice on arrival! Great start! The room was...

I apologise, my mistake. However the crux of my argument remains, unless Cunard lower their bar prices people will cut down on what they drink, profits will fall and Cunard will then raise prices...

If they have been given this same comment frequently why don't they listen and do something about it? It surprises me that they don't understand that if they drop the bar prices they would sell much...

The last time I was in Queens Grill (QV) 18 months ago, I fancied some caviar and asked the waiter for a portion. He told me he would have to ask the Matire'D first if it would be OK? I was surprised...

As I posted on an earlier thread (which was soon 'removed'?) if everyone on a ship carrying 2000 passengers spends $20 per day on beverages over a 7 day cruise, this would amount to $280,000 of...

Like I said, large cruise companies are playing the tipping customs of one nation (USA) against most others. It is in their interest that USA passengers call those who are against auto tipping all...
