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

We have always cruised with Cunard so can only compare it with comments made by fellow travelers who had used other cruise lines. Almost without exception we are told time and time again that some of the other cruise lines are good, but ... Read more

This was our second Cunard trip, the first being a transatlantic crossing on QM2 last year. The Queen Elizabeth is a beautiful ship. We had booked a Princess Grill suite which was very comfortable and gave a lot of advantages such as ... Read more

I have just returned from a week voyage to the Fjords of Norway on the Queen Elizabeth. To put this review in context, this was my 7th Cunard cruise and my 5th on Queen Elizabeth. I will begin by saying that the QE is still a beautiful ... Read more

My first ever cruise was on Queen Elizabeth from Kiel, via Bruges to Southampton. Having flown from Heathrow to Hamburg on a Cunard arranged flight, Cunard staff met us by the baggage carrousel and we were coached to Kiel. Boarding was a ... Read more

We have travelled with Cunard a number of times, and we're pleased to find our experience was as wonderful as ever, despite reading some reviews which seemed almost to be referring to a different ship. The itinerary was a little port ... Read more

This was our eighth voyage on the QE. Previously, we were devoted QE2 fans. So we are committed Cunarders. We love QE dearly. For an ugly sister, she does provide wonderful amenities, friendly staff who remember you and a very ... Read more

I had high expectations of this mini cruise at over £1k for the trip. Sadly I was disappointed to note no welcoming steward no help. I saw elderly struggling and didn't feel welcome. Arrived in room. Very small but adequate. Shower ... Read more
