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

We are experienced cruises using many different cruise lines but this was the first time that we had used Cunard. The main reason was that two ports of call were in India which we had yet to visit. Singapore was as usual a delight have ... Read more

We had heard how wonderful Cunard were and how much better than all their rivals. We should have seen a red light when our first two encounters were being told to board a few hours later than planned due to novovirus being rampant on the ... 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

We decided to take a short voyage to sample a Cunard product and a larger ship. As a background, we have taken four cruises with Seabourn in recent years, and thought this mini voyage with Cunard would be an interesting exercise, before ... Read more

What a fabulous cruise - wonderful ship, lovely food and just the best dancing ever. We booked this cruise because we love to dance - although we are only social dancers, we do enjoy it. There was a dance class each sea day taught by ... 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

We booked this cruise 18 months ago, in fact before we did the 2014 Christmas/New Year cruise. Last time we were in Britannia Club which was excellent, but we thought that we try the grills and booked into the Princess Grill. Embarcation ... Read more

...some aspects of the cruise which let Cunard down. There were two of us. We booked two balcony cabins next door one another for single occupancy. Cunard certainly knows how to charge for these! The embarkation process was rapid and ... Read more

We have just returned from a 10 night cruise on Queen Elizabeth. We sailed in a P2 suite (4096). Great position on the ship with larger balcony so would recommend the cabin and that next to it (4094). There is a crew access point to deck ... Read more

Booked what was our 16th Cruise with Cunard and I have to say this was the one we enjoyed the least and will likely be our last. A new menu was imposed in the Grills which was a real retrograde step. What was once the hall mark of Cunard ... Read more
