Ship Facts: Queen Elizabeth Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Elizabeth Deck Plans
Hamburg horror
we sailed on the queen elizabeth on 1st july expecting as part of the cruise to have TWO DAYS in ST PETERSBURG. Imagine our horror when we only had one full day,and had another day in hamburg instead,but this was only to pick up some germans who were having a MINI-CRUISE of 2 days to southampton.

This effectedly turned the queen elizabeth into a FERRY.

The entertainment was GRIM,with only STUART GILLIES as the only highpoint.

The entertainment director was patronising in the extreme.

The food was good,with a few exceptions,and the staff worked very hard in the circumstances-given that the ship was full.

The shore tours were ULTRA EXPENSIVE and the two tours we did were informative.

The ship DID break down in st petersburg for about 2-3 hours,with no power for the toilets or showers.as a consequence of which the dinner menu had to be amended.

It is true about the cheese board in that you are just presented with 3 or 4 bits of cheese.

I would recommend the cruise,but it needs 2 DAYS in ST PETERSBURG to fully appreciate the beauty of this city.

IT DOES NOT NEED TWO DAYS IN HAMBURG-ESPECIALLY WHEN ONE OF THEM IS A SUNDAY,AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING IS OPEN APART FROM THE RAILWAY STATION..
