What was planned as a 4-day-weekend cruise with a stop in Skagen, Denmark ended up as a 2-night-trip from Kiel to Southampton with no stop enroute due to QE being late inbound from St. Petersburg, Russia. Whilst all passengers where ... 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

Only decided at Easter to book the cruise as we don't normally go at this time of year but so glad we did. We had been on the QM2 before so knew it would be great but this ship was even better. The service was impeccable and we had ... Read more

We enjoyed our transatlantic cruise very much. We had a lovely, large Queen Suite and enjoyed the Queen level experience . We were able to eat when we wanted and enjoyed a private lounge with entertainment. I enjoyed the Canyon Ranch Spa ... Read more

Excellent four day cruise on Queen Elizabeth to Hamburg. Service as always very good. Only complaint is the double whammy of the daily service charge plus a 15% surcharge when you order drinks of any kind. Onboard entertainment ... Read more

This was the last leg of a world cruise by the QM2 and we were sailing from Dubai back to Southampton through the Suez Canal. We had a ''Sheltered Balcony'' as the balconies in the Staterooms(Cabins) on Deck 4 are in the hull of the ship. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it included the Suez Canal we had 2 nights in Dubai before the cruise and we were stopping in what we thought were fairly interesting ports ?? They weren't interesting at all for me ! The excursion to ... Read more

We chose the cruise as QM2 is the last ship of its type, also going through the Suez Canal. We ticked both of those boxes and that is the best we can say about the cruise. It was infact the worst cruise we have ever been on. Due to ... Read more

Embarkation & disembarkation went smoothly, however the ship was so disappointing. Cunard market the Queen Mary 2 as the Flag Ship of their fleet. It was shabby and showing its age. In the Britannia Restaurant, The Golden Lion Pub ... Read more

This was our first Cunard cruise although we have been on many others (15+), mostly Princess and Holland America. We thought the ship was beautiful, lots of wood and marble and sparkling clean. Our balcony cabin was lovely but typical of ... Read more

This was our 3rd time on QM2 as we enjoy the ship so much, we prefer the refined elegance and the ship itself more than the theme park gimmicks of other Lines, (I am a great fan of the tradition and romance of the great Lines of the past). ... Read more

My husband and I joined Queen Victoria in Brisbane and sailed through to Hong Kong in March 2016. We are Ballroom Dances so Cunard suits us really well. We love that you can get dressed up every night. Where else can you go to a ... Read more

We paid a huge sum for 18 nights in top Queens Grill class. I found very little in return from Cunard/Carnival. We were not shown to our cabin (we did not know this ship). Except for breakfast the food did not reflect the flowery ... Read more

We have been on many cruises from Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand, and this one was by far the best. The ship is beautiful, and the service impeccable -- when I asked at the purser's desk for more recommendation cards, I was told ... Read more

This was the first half of the 2016 world cruise. The main problem was the entertainment staff. There was very little organised activities, and those that were were aimed at 6 year olds! These included a craft activity of making rubbings ... Read more

Having cruised 34 times before Cunard's Queen Elizabeth, I can offer a perspective on how QE compares to other lines. Our embarkation at Southampton was smooth. No issues with luggage or transport to pier. The layout of the ship is ... Read more
