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

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

This was our 5th voyage on the QM2. We chose it due to its recent Remastering. My wife and I embarked from Southampton to New York on Sept. 20th in a Queens Grille stateroom. Our luggage using Cunard's White Star service was the first to ... Read more

Our second trip on QE and Cunard once again delivered a fantastic voyage. Long may Cunard NOT offer an all inclusive drinks package - even though my husband likes to drink but the lack of such an offer does seem to maintain the high ... 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

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and we wanted to experience a cruise based in Britian. We were in cabin 1073. We usually book a balcony but the cruise was almost full. The cabin was a really nice size, and we didn't mind not ... Read more

This was our first cruise and after careful research here we thought it would be a good choice as we don't like loud and flashy. Flying from Bournemouth with Titan Airways, the initial impression was not great. The flight ran to ... Read more

We had been told by everyone we knew who had cruised that Cunard is one of the best lines to travel with! As this was our first cruise we had done loads of homework about what to expect, everyone had hyped it up so much, we were ... Read more
