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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
This was a fabulous first real experience of Cruising. The ship was a holiday in itself.Loved every minute. Excelent destinations too. The service, food, entertainment and facilities just excellent.
We had DeLuxe Inside 'Stateroom' and ...
This was our first cruise - after 5 years of waffling and faffing about. Started talking about it 18 months prior to our silver wedding and finally went this August with 28th anniversary coming up in December (!)
In that 5 year period ...
The itinerary was the main attraction of this Cruise.
Booking had been done a previous cruise so all was seem less...
The embarkation was quite simple and very rapid papers sent seemed to indicate a 1430 timing but we arrived just ...
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 ...
We chose Cunard and Queen Elizabeth to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary. We wanted to have a few days away on a luxury cruise-liner.
Regrettably Queen Elizabeth and its staff just did not live up to our lowest expectation.
just arrived back from 4 night mini cruise. embarkation from Southampton was great very quick. cases where at cabin very quickly we thought this is excellent then things started to go downhill, cabin was not very clean the baloncy was very ...
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 ...
Greek Isles Cruise 5th-22nd July 2016
This was our fifth cruise with Cunard but the first on Queen Elizabeth. However as we have sailed on Queen Victoria on two previous occasions, we found the ship layout very familiar/almost ...
this cruise was very disappointing as it was difficult to get around due to the heavy doors on the ship I unable to get out of my cabin my husband had open the door. The garden room was difficult to leave there was a heavy door before ...
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 ...
The Cunard liners are the only liners we travel on. They are of consistently of a very high standard. The accommodation in Queens grill suites is excellent with a fully stocked free in room bar.
The grill dining room and lounge are very ...
We are cruisers of some 21 years now. We have cruised on many Carnival Corporation lines over 31 cruises. We last cruised on Elizabeth three years ago.
The ship is really lovely and is kept in tip top condition. We had 7 ports of call ...
The Greeks gave us both comedy and tragedy, this cruise also delivered both.
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.
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Overall, we were thrilled with our Baltic Cruise on the Queen Elizabeth. This is my third cruise with Cunard (my husband’s 2nd) – Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Mary II and Queen Elizabeth.
Embarkation was handled in very ...
We had sailed on the two other queens which we thoroughly enjoyed. and had high expectations of a cruise on Queen Elizabeth which I now wished we had not bothered.
Congratulations to the hotel team, the food, restaurants, bars and ...
First Cunard cruise (done P&O and Fred Olsen before) but we joined up with friends who favour Cunard and who were going to the Baltic. where we wanted to go again for the second time (P&O previously).
This cruise advised us we ...
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, ...
