We knew 2 days on the ship would not be enough having cruised on her before. We visited the Caribbean from New York in 2009 and had a fantastic time. We wondered if we would notice much of a change after the refit in 2016 and In general we didn't. The atrium is bigger but the ship is massive with plenty of space for all anyway and athough we only had an inside cabin for this trip as opposed to a balcony we did not feel cramped.  Meeting our friends from Hampshire for their taster cruise was our reason for traveling to Southampton to return to Merseyside.
The start was not good, over an hour to board which is not acceptable then straight to the safety briefing. Left late with an extended sailaway. However nice large bottle of bubbly in the cabin eased our limited frustration. We were not sure our friends on their first cruise were impressed up to then. However all went perfectly afterwards and we think they are now converted to cruising but time will tell.
The food was excellent as was the service.  The Beatles tribute band were very good and the talk about the stormy planets was very interesting. Even the weather allowed us the opportunity for a little sun. We ate lunch in the Golden Lion pub sharing ploughman's and good company whilst listening to quality guitar playing in the background.  A visit each evenight to the G32 disco took us back decades dancing to a good solid beat American band. One thing did surprise us and that was the floor in the casino was uneven and spongy. This needs to be addressed as it could cause an elderly person to fall. 
It was fantastic to sail into Liverpool on the QM2 just after midnight with lights ablazing.
All in all and not withstanding the boarding delays a 5 star cruise as expected.
