Itinerary: World Cruise - Asia segment

Just returned from the Sydney to Singapore segment (27 nights) of the 2009 World Cruise. We booked a last-minute heavily discounted package that also included two nights post-cruise luxury accommodation in Singapore & economy airfares home to Sydney. This was our first cruise, although we have travelled extensively before. The cruise exceeded our expectations & we will certainly be cruising with Cunard again. Truly magical ...& I thought I'd be bored!

The food in all venues was of a high standard. The Britannia dining room offered a la carte gourmet dining for three meals per day, although we generally attended only for dinner. Three or more courses, a choice of vegetarian, seafood, meat, poultry or low fat for mains. Food included lobster, prawns, duck, turkey, thick steaks, snails, frogs legs etc. As we were budget travellers, we were unable to access the more elite Queens Grill & Princess Grill restaurants. We had breakfast and lunch in the Lido, buffet style, with theme lunches/dinners at times eg St Patrick's Day - Irish food. The range is extensive. Made-to-order pizzas and pasta are also available there. Complimentary room service is also available, although the menu is far more limited. We enjoyed our first daily cuppa delivered to our room each morning. Specialist coffees are available at the on-board cafe, at a price. There is a Todd English restaurant on board (payment required - US$20 lunch, US$30 dinner, although this was discounted at times).
