Drove down to Souhampton from London and used CPS for parking in the docks. As usual, it was very efficient, although quite expensive. We had a Princess Grill cabin which was as expected with plenty of wardrobe space and drawers. The ... Read more

The Greeks gave us both comedy and tragedy, this cruise also delivered both. The ship Unlike the Queen Mary, this is a Cruise ship and NOT a liner, having said that the words wow and awesome were not far away. Accommodation ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Cunard having previously always been with P&O and we were very impressed. Embarkation was swift and by the time we arrived at our cabin our cases were waiting there for us. We had booked an outside cabin ... Read more

As an introduction, we have sailed several times in the last 5 years (Seabourn x3, HAL x2 and Celebrity x1) and this was our first Cunard experience. We choose this cruise based on the itinerary and the reputation of the best ballrooms on ... Read more

We had driven around the Fjords of Norway in 1972 in a Saab I purchased in Amsterdam and shipped home from Goteborg, Sweden. We have seen the Fjords in New Zealand by air and bus and in Alaska by seas so we decided to go back to Norway to ... Read more

What was planned as a 4-day-weekend cruise with a stop in Skagen, Denmark ended up as a 2-night-trip from Kiel to Southampton with no stop enroute due to QE being late inbound from St. Petersburg, Russia. Whilst all passengers where ... Read more

This is not the quality product I thought I was paying for and would strongly advise people to avoid Cunard ships if you expect this to be a quality upmarket cruise company. Cunard are first class at the glossy branding and marketing but ... Read more

Whilst the destination was what we had hoped for, the Queen Elizabeth is a hopeless shambles. We chose Cunard as we have cruised on QM2 previously and that was superb in almost every way. On the QE, waiting staff appeared demoralised, ... Read more

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
