Just returned from our fourth Cruise on the QE and we were not disappointed. It remains our favourite ship. The ship is clean and well maintained and we have always found the service on board to be excellent. Sailing from Southampton to ... Read more

The ship was cold 18-19 degrees - staff didn't respond until the last few days of cruise and then temperature rose to other extreme 28 degrees. Passengers all developed illness whilst on board. Some staff were very good but generally ... Read more

We booked this trip as the 'holiday of a lifetime', it certainly was not. The cabin we were allocated 1041 had plumbing that did not always work, apparently because of the rough weather - this seemed to be a known problem, I would have ... Read more

Left Southampton nearly 12 hours late, after a real mess up with the embarkation. 1000 passengers were held in a football stadium and the other 1000 were sent, after the stadium was full, to the terminal. That's where the chaos started, ... Read more

This was my 10th cruise and my first on a Cunard ship. I've always held Cunard - with its British roots and regal history - in great esteem. Often when I look so forward to something and build it up in my head, I am bound to be ... Read more

This was my first cruise and I was unsure what to expect. I read the reviews on here so went with an open mind. Embarkation was a bit of a shock as there were so many people waiting to check in. I stupidly expected to walk straight on. ... Read more
