Welcome to the Cunard board, here are some links which you may find useful when planning your trip. Of course, nothing can substitute for personal experience so please feel free to post questions on the board and someone will be along to answer.

Cunard has a really good Cunard Help, Life on Board section on the UK website

Here are some examples of the frequently asked questions -

How much are the drinks on board ?

Dress Codes by Cruise and Formal night Calendar

Port Shuttle Info

Suggested attire for theme nights and balls

Who will the speakers be ?

Sample Menus

What do sheltered balconies look like ?

Just bear in mind that this is the UK website so any answers regarding terms & conditions, insurance etc will not be relevant if you are booking from outside the UK

You may find the deckplans useful –

Queen Elizabeth deck plans:

Queen Mary 2 deck plans:

Queen Victoria deck plans:

For those who are particularly interested in Queen Mary 2, here is a link to a chat with the Naval Architect and her designer Stephen Payne from 2013.

Q&A with Stephen Payne



In addition to the official answers, Cunard board members have been kind enough to share the photographs/daily programmes/menus from their trips. Hopefully this will give you the inspiration you need.
