We have been back a few weeks now and finally decided to throw in a few things that we noted about the QM2. I'm not an enthusiastic pen to paper person, so will put them in point form. Cons * No welcome or any information given on ... Read more

The Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria are the same size and smaller ships laid out in the same way. The QE is much newer being just over 2 years old so is very modern. I've not been on the QV yet. We found the QE to be very quiet with ... Read more

Everyone has their favorite cruise ship. Some extoll the modern convenience of Queen Elizabeth. Others swear by the majesty of Queen Mary 2. For me, Queen Victoria is Cunard's best-kept prize: a ship large enough to offer the usual ... Read more

First "European based" cruise. Embarkation at Southampton was fantastic, we were on board 15 minutes after checking in and our luggage arrived at the cabin just a few minutes after we did. Quite a spectacular sail away from ... Read more

Our cruise was to be a time of relaxation with our children. The discovery of the removal of the Basketball goals was horrible for two of my children who wanted to play and shoot every day. Over 2000 passengers would thus be awaiting to ... Read more

We should not have worried, and had an exceedingly good cruise. She is a beautiful ship. Exactly the right size at around 2000 passengers. She never felt too big and crowded or to small and lacking in amenities. We had an inside cabin in ... Read more

Having booked this cruise last year, and then only after realising that the departure day would be part of the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations, expectations of what Cunard would lay on were high and we weren't let down. Unfortunately for ... Read more

My wife and I have sailed with Cunard on 3 previous occasions and barring the odd minor issue, which has always been dealt with the minimum of fuss, we have been massive fans of Cunard Line's standard of service , even if it is a bit on ... Read more

The embarkation procedure was somewhat chaotic, but as we had paid for a Princess Grill Suite we did manage to get on board fairly quickly. (Note to Dun Thinkin - not all grill guests were wealthy, some had saved up for this cruise, and ... Read more

Our second cruise on Queen Victoria and once more a pleasure. Excellent food and only very minor complaints. Going up Norway to Northcape from Southampton is 4034 miles and requires some difficult packing decisions. Jacket, ... Read more

A ride on the QM2 cannot be compared with a 'normal' cruise ship, since its is built to cross the atlantic. We were (mostly) very pleased with the set-up. Cabin 11072 on the 11th floor was very comfortable (bigger than a comparable ... Read more

This review has been so long in coming because I have waited the best part of 6 weeks to receive a reply to my correspondence to Cunard. I will not bore you with details of the ship (very nice) or the cabin (mouldy smell immediately the ... Read more

This was our first Cunard experience, we have cruised many times before on various lines, although our favourites are Celebrity and RCI. Boarding was a bit chaotic but this was entirely down to the disorganised staff in the Ocean ... Read more

The first thing you will notice is that this review will sound really negative, yet I have given 5 stars for most of the areas. The truth is that we all had an amazing holiday. We saw some fantastic places, met lots of nice people and ate ... Read more

This was our first holiday cruise - we'd been pampered on business-related cruises twice before - so we had some trepidation and I would say only average expectations. Delighted to say the Queen Elizabeth and staff excelled despite the ... Read more

I had to twist my husband's arm to get him to agree to a cruise but fortunately all (or mostly all) was well. We were very happy with our cabin which, as we expected, wasn't spacious but was quite adequate for our needs and was kept ... Read more

Being loyal Cunard customers, we were initially concerned after reading the reviews of Queen Elizabeth. We need not have worried, we share none of the negative viewpoints offered by others. Embarkation at Southampton was slick and ... Read more
