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 chose it for the destination of Norway and Iceland in August 2016. All the ports were great and they give adequate time at each one to enjoy. The ship was smooth sailing and we loved every minute ,except for the formal nights ... Read more

This was our third cruise - by chance all on Queen Elizaebth - which we have almost come to regard as home at sea. My partner was always interested in going to Norway but I was less keen - so when this combined Norway and Iceland cruise ... Read more

I really, really do despair at the stupidity of some of the people who write cruise reviews. I was on the same cruise as the previous reviewer - celebrating my 60th birthday and had absolutely none of the issues he or she faced. We were ... 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

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

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
