How I disagree with this policy which only belongs in the dark ages. It is only in this country that such snobbery could be condoned ( and yes I am English) it really is so so wrong in this day and age to have any type of class differential. I would never cruise with this line, give me an American Celebrity ship any time 5 star for all on board not just for some. It is a disgrace.

On Queen Victoria I think you will find that the following areas are exclusively only accessible to Queen's & Princess Grill passengers: Queens Grill Restaurant, Princess Grill Restaurant, The Grills Lounge, The Grills Terrace, The Courtyard and the Grills Upper Terrace. I stand to be corrected, but I think all other areas are open to everyone. Personally, I think that if you can afford to pay the very high premiums and choose to travel in Queen's or Princess Grill staterooms,you should perhaps be entitled to some exclusivity. I've cruised many times with Cunard, always in standard outside cabins and enjoyed wonderful holidays. I don't understand why some people get so worked up about Cunard being 'class conscious' ships. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful cruise whichever cabin you choose.

You have a choice of accommodation in a hotel, plus a choice of the class of hotel to stay in. why should there be any difference on a ship, which is a floating hotel anyway. If people are prepared to pay quite a lot extra for the privilege of a better stateroom then they deserve to eat in a better, more excusive, restaurant. There is no class" system, just more choices for the passenger.

Mutiny at sea!

It sounds like Celebrity cruises have a few things going wrong on their Infinity ship based in South America this winter.Most reviews we receive reagrding Celebrity cruises are excellent and reflect the 5* staus in the cruising market. Guest to staff ratio means you have much more space to enjoy the facilities on-board.I recently had a customer return from this cruise in January and although she had a great time, there were so many problems encountered due to one of the ships propellersIf the...

The weather stayed good for the sailing at the end of February, although windy the sun shone over them time they was on board...
