As an introduction, we have sailed several times in the last 5 years (Seabourn x3, HAL x2 and Celebrity x1) and this was our first Cunard experience. We choose this cruise based on the itinerary and the reputation of the best ballrooms on ... Read more

We had sailed on the two other queens which we thoroughly enjoyed. and had high expectations of a cruise on Queen Elizabeth which I now wished we had not bothered. Congratulations to the hotel team, the food, restaurants, bars and ... Read more

Whilst the destination was what we had hoped for, the Queen Elizabeth is a hopeless shambles. We chose Cunard as we have cruised on QM2 previously and that was superb in almost every way. On the QE, waiting staff appeared demoralised, ... Read more

We are experienced cruisers and have travelled twice before with Cunard on the QM2 transatlantics in the Princess Grill. We loved both trips so when we saw a short post Christmas cruise on Queen Victoria to Copenhagen and Hamburg we took ... Read more

Having had 2 previous cruises with Cunard on Queen Victoria,our Baltic Cruise on Queen Elizabeth was a let down. Sometimes the staff were offhand or just plain rude, the variety of food limited and fresh supplies ran out towards the end of ... Read more

Firstly, we are not regular cruisers but we have been on QM2, short trip around the Carribean shortly after she was commissioned and then transatlantic on QE2. Both these trips took place prior to Carnival buying Cunard. The differences ... Read more

I have cruised more than ten times with Celebrity, Princess, Holland America, Costa, Carnival, RCL and so on. This is the first time I tried Cunard and thought it should have been better than other cruise lines. Well, I was wrong. We chose ... Read more

Firstly, let me assure you that this stunning cruise ship is the epitome of traditional British elegance and exquisite floating luxury. How anyone can rate their Cruise Critic review for the beautiful Queen Victoria as only 1 or 2 stars is ... Read more

This cruise was a substitute for the Black Sea and Turkish Splendors which, due to Mr Putin, hardly touched the Black Sea! As we had stops at Warnemunde [Germany] and Kristiansand [Norway] on a previous cruise to St Petersburg the decision ... Read more

I should say that this was my first sea cruise, previously I have enjoyed two river cruises with Scenic Tours who I would rate higher. Cunard is now unfortunately an American company, so you will be subject to the American tipping ... Read more

Cunard always points out the "traditional way of cruising". Reserved tables, same dining partners every evening in the Britannia Restaurant. So, as usual, we found our reservation card in the stateroom (Deck 8, balcony) and appeared at the ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Queen Victoria, both in the Princess Grill. Our first trip to the Fjords was faultless on every level, apart from mislaying our luggage. This is why we came back. This time on arrival at Dock 10 we were told ... Read more

My recent cruise on the Queen Victoria helped me understand what the term "quintessentially British" means in a Cunard context. It means a floating retirement village inhabited overwhelmingly by 1200 former Coronation Street characters. ... Read more
