Ship Facts: Queen Elizabeth Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Elizabeth Deck Plans
Capital Experience
Just returned from Baltic Explorer cruise.  What a fabulous way of seeing the sights of cities I porbalby woulnd' think of visiting. One tip though - don't book the panorama tour of Copenhagen - you can easily do it on fott unless you have a disabilty. Best trip - evening trip to Hermitage in St Petersburg - no one else in museum done after closing so no crowds.

The whole trip exceeded my expectations overall. Had to miss Stockholm due to weather but you can't blame Cunard for that.

We had used the free parking provided through Cunard and everthing went very smoothly - I joked with our friends that the car was being loaded onto a container to Nigeria but needn't have worried it was there waiting for us on our return.

We were on board within 20 minutes of checking in and our luggage had already been delivered when we arrived in our room - can't get better than that.

Our steweard Raul came and introduced himself and was very helpful and pleasant.

Food was very good - menu could get a little bit repetitive but I jsut tried something different nex time round so no real complaints. Waiters were very friendly and hey it was holiday so if things got muddled a couple of times we joked about rather than complained - find you get a better response and future service.

Entertainment was fine - maybe some of the theatre productions could do with updating or changing when you;ve done a number of cruises with Cunard but a couple of the acts were very good - particularly the juggluing comedian!

We love the ballroom and danced every night - the band could do with changing it's repetiore from night to night though and play more variety of dances (more tango and swing needed).

Had an acting company onboard who were excellent and did three or four good productions - thanks to Nikki who organised a passenger choir which was good fun and something different and wll supported.

Only nigle I have is that the themed balls that Cunard hold on formal nights - the entertainment starts too early for those on late sitting to join in th fun.

Overall loved the ship - very spacious and never feels like there a 2,000 popele onboard.
