Ship Facts: Queen Elizabeth Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Elizabeth Deck Plans
QE, good in parts, not so good in others.
Queen Elizabeth is not a pretty ship, very long and narrow perhaps indicating the cruise line it was originally intended for.

Inside is very elegant in all the main passenger areas, particularly the ballroom.Passenger corridors and cabins are bland and unattractive.

Grand lobby is not as grand as you would wish, although elegant it is a small area.

cabin steward was superb,Britannia restaurant was very good, again very elegant and the waiters and wine waiters were excellent.

Major complaints are two-fold.

First, the entertainment in the main theatre was very poor, the highlight on one evening was a film!!!

Totally unacceptable as prime time evening entertainment in the main theatre!!!

If you do not dance or drink alcohol,then this ship is not for you.

Second, price of wine and alcohol in general was VERY expensive. Prices were 'OUCH' plus 15% FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE. Have never been able to understand the last bit!

Excursions were superb, we went for the ports of call and except for Mytilene were not disappointed.

Disembarkation in Venice was a dreadful experience, some passengers taking 2 hours to check in, go through security and passport control. Our flight was delayed and no reason was given and no rep from either Cunard or Thomson available for information.

Probably will not 'voyage' with Cunard again.
