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 have been on many cruises from Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand, and this one was by far the best. The ship is beautiful, and the service impeccable -- when I asked at the purser's desk for more recommendation cards, I was told ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ports visited. Good points. Embarkation was swift and we felt very welcomed by the staff. We loved the Royal Cunard Singers and dancers, and the Royal Court Theatre Orchestra are superb. ... 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 had a embarkation time of 3 pm but we were on the ship by 1.15pm only took 15 mins to board. We did not book this cruise till November and we took a fare that allowed Cunard to allocate our cabin. We had a outside restrictive view ... 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 booked an early savings fare for an inside cabin as we were on a budget. The cabin and shower room was small but perfectly adequate and spotlessly clean. The beds and pillows were the comfiest I have ever experienced. ALL the staff ... Read more

We embarked in Southampton, we were booked for 14:30 but arrived at about 13:10. CPS took the car straight off us, and the luggage porter was helpful. There we no queues, and we were on board straight away, very smooth. Oh by the way ... 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

Mixed feelings and experiences cruising on the Queen Elizabeth with Cunard. Enjoyed good food, and some (but not all) good entertainment. But with Cunard setting the bar so high, the voyage was not without some shortcomings. First and ... 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

For a short cruise this one was eventful. Embarkation was impressively efficient but was followed by a series of announcements delaying departure whilst awaiting the arrival of a plane. A large contingent of Japanese passengers (said to be ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Cunard and booked as a "taster" really as it had been my life-long dream to sail on one of the Cunard Queens. It was quite simply fabulous from the time we checked-in to the time we disembarked. ... Read more
