The OP would have no problem if Cunard adopted the P&O policy. One bottle of wine though would not last long for cabin consumption.

None yet but the trend is towards a change of policy as with P&O and Carnival and many others. I’d expect Cunard to follow the others soon.

Passengers wouldn’t be too happy if they got it as well because an infected passenger was let loose among them.

Can’t agree that you are confined to cabin for Cunards benifit. It’s for the benifit of all the at present well aboard.

No more cc add ons
As of yesterday Cunard can no longer add a fee for bookings paid by credit card. Payments by cc do give consumers added protection if things go wrong. Can’t help thinking Cunard will be too happy...

Original meaning “foolish, stupid, senseless” apparently. I’ve seen a few to merit that description aboard over the years.

I don’t think many would argue that cruise standards have not fallen, and the longer ago that they took their first the more the falling would be.

It was no less than David Cameron who said “too many twits make a twat”

He did apologise though.

3000 passengers embark, chances are that one will be starting to feel nauseous with what is probably the virus. Hopefully the passenger will be sensible and not circulate around the ship and...

This is not true, there are numerous scientific reports showing that passive smoke is hazardous. A quick search will bring up volumes if you are interested.

The theory of retaining passengers in their seats applies to busses as well as cars. There are numerous videos of bus crashes where people were tossed around like test dummies, one girl obviously...

This offensive clothing rule indicates that there has been a problem or problems aboard as with passengers also abusing the lenient drinks policy. Do I want to be aboard a ship where anyone would...

Indeed, that’s why some people never seem to catch anything. At the moment due to medical reasons my immune system is probably pretty shot at but normally I am one of the lucky ones. Sensible eating...

As we all know, Noro virus outbreaks are common in winter months among people in a closed environment - schools, hospitals, care homes and of course cruise ships. There are many people who never...

If everyone stuck to 1 litre there would be no need to bring in any new policy.

Lthough we are all used to the pint measure it could be better if they used metric. Extra service for them as they would need to serve 2 glasses to get to roughly a pint. I think it’s difficult to...

Entertainment staff unruly? Why would that surprise anyone. They get paid peanuts (and are mostly over paid at that) so course they then act like monkeys. It’s all a sign of the steady decline of a...

Well first it wouldn’t be sail back it would be tow back and I can’t see it being a success in Southampton anyway. Time has moved on and to most people here QE2 is just a ship that they may be aware...

Over the years we have had so many of these plans that have never come to anything. This one could be the goer though, who knows. The question is though, does QE2 have the pulling power now after so...

At £200 a day all in they are getting the value you could expect for that amount and possibly more. A poster who is hoping to get Harvester quality dining on a P&O ship is due to be disappointed...

The cost of the chopper would be the responsibility of the passenger.

Wouldn’t need to send you a bill, they would simply add the charges to your registered credit card.
