Commodore club, Cunard cruising
Embarkation was effortless and smooth yesterday. I love the classiness and style of Cunard.
On board. After healthy lunch of salad, veggies and a vegan ratatouille. A lovely glass of water followed by a walk outside in the cool sea breeze. Some people lounging around the pool deck.
What does Cunard offer that is special? They are celebrating 175 years of tradition. They offer history, formality, enrichment in the form of guest lectures and global topics, famous persons, including writers and other artists. They host the only ocean liner in the world, Queen Mary 2 and it virtually cuts through the weather crossing the Atlantic, for which she was designed. She is unique with her depth and speed for a passenger cruise ship.
The “class” system is alive throughout the Cunard line, but what does this mean? For those suite guests who enjoy and more elite service of butlers, concierge and inclusivity this could be the cruise line for them. I personally do not experience any snobbery or sense of difference on my cruise, and this is my fourth cruise with Cunard.
I enjoy the formal dress up evenings, people watching, exquisite personal service and well appointed staterooms on the most beautiful mid size ships at sea. I love Cunard history and enrichment opportunities.
What would groups of people enjoy on Cunard? Fine food and fine dining, fabulous wine selections and sommelier service. There is a cigar room for those who enjoy that specialized space. No longer are people permitted to smoke on balcony staterooms. Excursions to wineries and you can bring wine on board for personal consumption in staterooms. Wine packages are affordable and offer great selection for dining accompaniment. Extra enrichment includes classes for watercolor painting, spa and fitness classes, dancing classes and ample practice opportunities.
People who are passionate about travel and enjoy these extra inclusions may also enjoy the Cunard experience. Those who can’t or don’t want to fly, can still get to Europe on board the famous ocean liner, Queen Mary 2.
Google the cruise line and see if this is for you! I am often in the mood for Cunard and I would love you to join me!
