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. ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

This was our 9th cruise with Cunard and 6th on the QE. Occasionally Cunard lets us down where elements of Carnivalisation become all too apparent; sometimes the service lacks the finesse I would expect; occasionally a member of staff ... Read more

We are experienced Cunarders. Some might say that we should broaden our horizons and try some other lines. For us, however, when Cunard consistently delivers to such a very high standard; when so many staff go out of their way to look ... Read more
