From the embarkation to disembarkation the whole experience was wonderful. I have sailed with P&O before which was very nice, but Cunard really was a different class. We had a balcony cabin on the 8th deck. The cabin was spacious, ...
First let me state that this was the second of two back to back cruises my friend and I took (the first being to Spain and Portugal.) Truthfully by the end of the second cruise I felt a bit jaded, overfed and kind of done with the famous ...
We loved the Queen Elizabeth and thought she was a beautiful, traditional ship. The ship is not too big, which gives it a very friendly feel as we often bumped into people we’d eaten breakfast with etc.
Embarkation was efficient ...
If you like the older style of passenger ship, then this Queen Elizabeth may appeal. Although beset with lines of balconies which would fit well into a Benidorm apartment block, the overall shape, albeit without any sheer at all, is ...
Our 1st time with Cunard, a 7 day cruise from Southampton to Lisbon and back.
boarding was very quick and a small bottle of fizz in the room to help one settle in.
The on board entertainment was very good the only problem being that ...
I went with my next door neighbour. She doesnt like more than 7 days. I like longer.
It's useful for me to have someone with me as I'm slightly disabled.
There is a problem with charging mobility scooters which the onboard engineers ...
Embarkation very quick and easy, the staff were very efficient.
The cabin was ready when we boarded so we made our way there to drop off our carry on bag. I was surprised at the spaciousness of the cabin,loads of storage space, lovely ...
We chose this cruise as a thirtieth anniversary celebration, we love ballroom dancing and managed to have some lessons with world champion dancers....excellent. Our cabin was spacious and well laid out with a complimentary bottle of wine ...
Choose this cruise for a short break for my husbands birthday. The ship was very clean and pleasant but found that the service was not what I had expected. Crew were not as smiley or friendly as I have experienced on other cruise lines ...
We expected , luxury and we certainly received it and experienced it for the 5 days we were on board.
From embarkation to disembarking we enjoyed the elegant and opulent surroundings and experienced the world renown service.
We joined Queen Elizabeth on the 20th April in Cape Town. We had travelled on quite a few cruises on Queen Mary, but wow we were blown away by Queen Elizabeth. From the moment we stepped aboard, our holiday began and it was wonderful ...
My husband and I chose this cruise because of the itinerary.
The embarkation process ran smoothly and we did not have to wait too long to board the ship in Singapore. We had a cabin near to mid-ship on Deck 4 with an obstructed view ...
My first cruise as a solo traveller but part of an escorted tour. As a result, I cannot compare with other cruises. However, I am a seasoned luxury solo traveller (mainly SE Asia). I have to say that QE generally does not compare with ...
I chose QE because l had heard that Cunard was 'upscale". After cruising a couple of other lines l thought l'd give them a try.
l was disappointed about the following aspects of the cruise:
- Hot tub was seldom HOT
To put this review in perspective, here is some background. We cruise this segment almost every year at the same time for our wedding anniversary, using Royal Caribbean, Crystal and Cunard from Hong Kong back to Singapore. We also love ...
Sydney to Hong Kong 28 days on the ship.First stop Brisbane in a container terminal.shuttle bus into the city, next stop Cairns then PNG then it was good by to sunshine until we reached Hong Kong .We had a lot of See days on this cruise ...
We enjoyed the 13-night, Brisbane to Kobe leg of Queen Elizabeth's 2017 world cruise.
Embarkation at Brisbane's temporary international cruise terminal at Fisherman Island was smooth and we were quickly in our balcony cabin 6030. The ...

Queen Elizabeth offers beautiful surroundings, great cruise destinations, good value, an outstanding lecture component, stunning public spaces and a feeling of elegance and comfort throughout, but in my opinion fails when it comes to ...
We booked this cruise to celebrate a 40th birthday and our 20th wedding anniversary for myself, husband and our 3 year old son. We loved the refined, elegant, beautiful decor, the attentive and friendly crew and the food was excellent.
Massive fail from Cunard.
I've been on more than 15 cruises. Loved everyone one of them, and am constantly amazed at whingers (but sadly the experience on Queen Elizabeth has made me a whinger this time).The service on Australia's ...
I booked the San Francisco to Auckland leg of a World Voyage on the Queen Elizabeth. This was my first cruise and I'm pleased I chose Cunard. I had one and a half days in SFO before embarkation, booked as part of the cruise and I ...
we chose this cruise because even though we have done many shorter cruises on other cruise lines we were excited to cruise across the Atlantic ocean, down to the Caribbean, through the panama canal and home to Australia. Both our ...
We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Queen Elizabeth, she is a beautiful ship. Our cabin was bigger than we expected and perfect for us. The bed was so comfortable, the best ever. There were good quality toiletries provided in the bathroom. ...
