Drove down to Souhampton from London and used CPS for parking in the docks. As usual, it was very efficient, although quite expensive. We had a Princess Grill cabin which was as expected with plenty of wardrobe space and drawers. The ... Read more

We are cruisers of some 21 years now. We have cruised on many Carnival Corporation lines over 31 cruises. We last cruised on Elizabeth three years ago. The ship is really lovely and is kept in tip top condition. We had 7 ports of call ... Read more

The Greeks gave us both comedy and tragedy, this cruise also delivered both. The ship Unlike the Queen Mary, this is a Cruise ship and NOT a liner, having said that the words wow and awesome were not far away. Accommodation ... Read more

This was a 90th birthday cruise for a long-time Cunard passenger. Embarkation took over two hours(one person fainted) and young children were being held by parents for long periods of time. Dining room service was extremely slow and the ... Read more

It was our third time to take QM2. We took QM2 last year and were disappointed. But, we still wanted to give her a second chance, especially knowing that there was a dry port refurbishment. Unfortunately, she disappointed us one more ... Read more

The opportunity to sail on the Queen Mary 2 was the appeal. We sailed from New York to Halifax, stopped in Boston, then back to New York. The cruise was thoroughly enjoyable. The QM2 was just remastered and I was wondering if the ... Read more

Embarkation was a nightmare. Waited well over an hour in a hot terminal with minimal attention and supervision by Cunard who only cared about their status customers. The published itinerary was misleading; stated that we would be in ... Read more

This cruise was a big disappointment. I am a travel agent and have been on several cruise lines and this was my worst experience. I chose this cruise line because I liked the short itinerary and the high level of service they advertise. ... Read more

We sailed on the QM2 Remastered crossing from Southampton to New York. Our embarkation was slightly delayed (approx 1.5hrs) due to IT problems but you need to be realistic when 1000s of passengers are being processed and keep calm. ... Read more

Conventional cruising wisdom recommends avoiding any sailing right after a major refit for good reasons: work is still ongoing and the crew members have been off their service routines for a few weeks. These issues were evident on the ... Read more

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

This is not the quality product I thought I was paying for and would strongly advise people to avoid Cunard ships if you expect this to be a quality upmarket cruise company. Cunard are first class at the glossy branding and marketing but ... Read more

June 9th to 23rd Princess Grill Suite. First I must say that all of our travel arrangements were made through Cunard. Their air and pre-hotel package were included so this review encompasses more than just our cruise portion. We have ... Read more

The service and food were amongst the best out of the 30 or so cruises we have been on with various cruise lines from the Med to the Far East. The ship is spotless BUT we are keen ballroom dancers and overall the dance experience was very ... 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
