Last year I sailed 22 days on The Queen to UK, Hamburg, and Norway. I was excellent. Last week I was only able to take a short cruise and I found it to be lacking in it's treatment of the guests. Saki the head waiter in the Britannia room ... Read more

We have travelled with Cunard a number of times, and we're pleased to find our experience was as wonderful as ever, despite reading some reviews which seemed almost to be referring to a different ship. The itinerary was a little port ... Read more

First my positive comments: The ship itself is great; spacious and comfortable. The ship's stabilisers were only used once during the 8 days and this was in Force 9 winds. The impact of the high seas was barely noticeable on board. ... Read more

I expected Queen Victoria to provide a superior cruise to the cheaper ones we had been on previously - not so!! We arrived at Venice airport and were told we had a two hour coach trip to Trieste to board the ship. The Cunard staff at ... Read more

This was our first time with Cunard, having sailed with P&O on ten cruises. We thought the Queen Elizabeth was the most beautiful ship we had ever sailed on, we loved the decor, the carpets, the furnishings, and all the photographs ... Read more

Warning is will be quite long as I will have lots of time to kill – I will write day by day as we travel! To give the correct context we are men in our late 40's, from the UK and have cruised many times (about 40 I would guess). ... Read more

We booked this cruise as the dates suited us and there were a number of ports we hadn't visited before. We take a cruise twice a year (Christmas and summer) and vary the cruise line we take according to dates, ports and, of course, price. ... Read more

We sailed on QE on a 3 day mini-cruise from Kiel to Southampton and our experience can be summed up like this: + Cabins and public areas are kept clean and appear well maintained although the outside of the ship (colour on the hull, ... 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

We've been on QM2 from NYC to Hamburg 21-30. June. Our 5th TA crossing and everytime when we read these negative reviews, we worry about how bad our Crossing will be. The ship seems to be falling apart, the personel overworked and ... Read more

We had previously done 2 Cunard cruises, both from Southampton and were a little nervous about embarking on a fly cruise. We chose to pay extra to go from Manchester (£50 pp) and rather than flying via BA from Heathrow we ended up ... Read more

I had high expectations of this mini cruise at over £1k for the trip. Sadly I was disappointed to note no welcoming steward no help. I saw elderly struggling and didn't feel welcome. Arrived in room. Very small but adequate. Shower ... Read more

Before and after the booking I was looking for some personal information on weddings on QM2, but it was hardly possible to find a review – therefore I add one to help future brides. Beside fulfilling the TA dream we also got ... Read more

QM was docked at the QE2 terminal, check-in was faultless. Loads of staff on hand to assist us first timers. We were booked into a balcony cabin on Deck 5, on exiting the lift our luggage was being taken to cabin. The ship, from the ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Cunard, we went along with friends for a 4 night jolly. The embarkation process was frustrating, the desk clerks were all sat at their desks for a good 40 minutes having a good chin-wag before they even ... Read more

We've discovered over the years that the best way to cross the ocean is by ship. Comparing the QM2 with a cramped aluminum tube, and remembering that the QM2 includes lodging, food and entertainment for a week, it actually comes out ... Read more
