Ship Facts: Queen Elizabeth Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Queen Elizabeth Deck Plans
Deja Vu on the Queen Elizabeth
We booked the Queen Elizabeth because it was going to the destinations we had always wanted to go to in the Autumn and because it was anew ship, only launched last Octobe. We had the opportunity to go on P & O to the same ports but strangely enough a balcony cabin on the Cunard was cheaper!

We were not disappointed with the level of service as it was excellent as usual. What we were disappointed in was the fact that it was almost identical to the Queen Victoria! We thought new ship new decor and design. But no! As soon as we boarded we had this feeling of "Deja Vu".

Oddly enough we found that we were also seated on the same table as we had been allocated when we sailed on the Queen Victoria, the Captain's Table of 10.

We had been warned about crossing the Atlantic due to the fog and cold but I have to say we were most fortunate and only had one foggy day as we reached Portland.

However, we were probably too early to see the fall in all its glory and might have been better sailling two weeks later. Then, of course, you could get more foggy and wetter weather, so its take your chance.

Overall we really enjoyed the cruise and all the ports of call. We had not cruised so long before and thought it might drag but it did not and hte time went very quickly. We were lucky to have a nice set of people to dine with and found it a friendly ship.
