The cruise travel experts at Cruises-N-More share 6 reasons to take a Cunard cruise on one of their majestic ships, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2.
1. Departure Celebrations
Brass band before departure. Uniformed military brass band marches into the Queens Room, parades and plays.
Fireworks on departure. Sail out of Southampton with a flare.
2. Gala Parties
Captain’s welcome cocktail party. Always a wonderful time to see and be seen.
World club party. Smaller crowd, another very good time.
Senior officers party. More cocktail parties with music and drinks.
Evening music in the lobby. Walking through the lobby while a saxophonist or a piano play is magical.
3. For Wine, Cocktail & Dining Aficionados
Gin and fizz bar. About fifty gins and a dozen tonics, served in balloon glasses with incredible garnishes.
Wine lunch and learn. A four-course lunch with eight wines in a specialty restaurant.
Scotch tasting. Premium scotch to learn about and taste.
Caviar and champagne. Not always on the “bar menu,” but you can ask for caviar for two with all the trimmings.

Princess Grill, Britannia Restaurant, and Britannia Club Restaurant.
