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. ...
"Embark on a very civilised adventure. Sail with Cunard to experience your ideal oasis of discovery, relaxation and sophistication" "The Cunard experience. Everything you wanted Nothing you expected.".
The above ...
We booked this cruise our third on QE 12 months ago and were not disappointed Arrived at the terminal at .12 noon and was on board by 12.30 pm this is one of the things I like about Cunard. straight to stateroom and drop our bags off. ...
I was on the Queen Elizabeth just before Christmas.
Embarkation was excellent.
However nobody greeted you on the ship and no welcome drink.
I found the cabin and it was ok.
Had a wander around the ship and it is a stunning ...
This was our first time away from home at Christmas. Our choice of Cruise was first and foremost driven by our wish to be back in England in time for New Year. There were one or two possibilities, but it was not a difficult decison to ...
This was our first experience, as sixty-somethings, of cruising and, overall, we were not disappointed. The Queen Elizabeth may lack the exterior grace of its earlier namesake (the 1938 version), but offers sumptuous, comfortable ...
Sadly this cruise was totally miss-sold as a Big Band Cruise, as the only sign of the theme was on the Saturday Night with a Big Band Ball in the Queens room (The theatre orchestra joined up with the Queens Room orchestra) Most of your ...
I have read a couple of reviews from people who went on this trip and I cant believe we were on the same ship......the embarkation was smooth and easy...the ship was absolutely fantastic in every way including service, food quality and ...
We booked this holiday as first time cruisers thinking it would be a memorable and wonderful way to renew our wedding vows, see a few places and relax. Embarkation went smoothly. The room was like a small premier inn room but was clean and ...
After completing our first ever cruise on the Queen Elizabeth in October this year my husband Mr G asked if I would go on another and I promptly replied NO! cruising wasn’t for us. One month later and I’d changed my mind ...
This was our first cruise and we were not dissapointed. We didn't know anyone who had sailed with Cunard and did not think their description of cruises they had been on were for us (not into water slides rock climbing or hundreds of ...
First cruise, indeed first 2 week holiday for over 20 years. We had spent a Iot of time looking 18 months in advance and it was the port destinations that had decided our cruise. Very impressed with the Cunard organisation embarkation was ...
Length and time of the year means little or no chance of children on board.
Britannia balcony cabin on deck 5 toward the front was ideal for us and as we did not intend going ashore too often we were well placed for the ships facilities ...
We had a most enjoyable cruise. Queen Elizabeth is an elegant and well-maintained ship, which always feels spacious and restful. There were over 2,000 passengers on board but it never felt crowded. It is decorated in an understated and ...
Greek ISLES 6/10/16 - 26/10/16
Itinerary: excellent. There were two itinerary changes in the weeks before departure, with Mykonos and Kusadasi being exchanged for Heraklion, Crete and Sarande, Albania.
THE SHIP: exceptionally well ...
Cunard Queen Elizabeth 7 Day Iberia cruise October 2016
We are experienced cruisers, but have been ‘resting’ since 2012. It a bit long and rambling I’m afraid.
This was our second Cunard cruise, but were classed as ...
We are a group of friends, two couples in their 40's and two in their 60's. This was our first cruise, previously we have done two Transatlantics on the QM2. We booked our BF-category cabins almost a year in advance so had a lot of time to ...
