Our cabin was a C2 and quite large enough for the two of us. Two large walk-in closets and a huge bathroom. Only complaint was that this cabin had the TV installed on the wall at the side of one of the beds, as opposed to being at the foot of the beds as it was in our cabin on the first cruise. A minor irritation.

We were on 3 deck, a few dozen steps from the flower shop and the launderette. The latter is very convenient, with plenty of washers and dryers and, despite the brochure telling us that soap was available for a small charge, there was ample free soap on hand at all times. I enjoyed the free computer lessons and also being able to send and receive E mails while on board, all incoming E mails are free but there is $5.00 charge to send one.

We found the shore activities quite expensive and did not partake of any of them on either cruise. One negative thing was that, on both cruises, Cunard arranged to arrive at the first port of call on a Sunday (perhaps dock charges are cheaper then?!). This meant that in Bermuda and Pago Pago everything was closed. This was especially annoying as we were not informed of this and took the tender across to Hamilton, Bermuda for nothing. It is a charming and very pretty town with many delightful stores that were all locked up!

Looking forward to 1/26/02.
