On most ships you can enjoy a special suite or cabin, some ships are made for such luxury with marbled palaces at tens of thousand of pounds a night. However, for most of us, we book a standard cabin, or stateroom. So, what is the difference between a cabin at P&O and a stateroom on Cunard. To be honest, very little if any, other than the name. Here is our one minute tour of the standard Cunard stateroom on deck 4, of Queen Victoria. The main difference for us was that the fridge came stocked with a price list. There is a bottle of water in the room which you are charged for if you open it. The soaps are in plastic bottles with period looking screw tops rather than flat ones. CUNARD CRUISE DEAL @ THOMAS COOK The TV service is modern and extensive, with ship channels like lectures and Entertainment Manager’s channel as well as the commercial channels. Apart from those features, and a pair of slippers left in the wardrobe, the furnishing and size are more than just familiar. If you look at our standard tour of both the Azura and Britannia cabins, the layout is different with the wardrobe being a long rail facing the bathroom which makes the area feel bigger even if it is not. The cabin water is perfectly fine to drink, and prices on board are in dollars. Pack to dress, Cunard passengers do dress up and the dress code on board is strictly enforced. No light jeans or ripped jeans anywhere on board after 6pm.
Cunard, P&O and Princess ships are all owned by Carnival and operate from the same office in Southampton. You will note from our fascinating story of the Princess Cruises, that the three brands have close ties and you will feel at home on any of them seeing many familiar decorations and services.
