We've cruised many lines but this was our first time on Cunard

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

Im keen to try all the great cruise lines if possible and this Cunard ship was sailing out of Australia and returning to the same port at a time that suited our needs so seemed like the perfect choice for a nice holiday break. Check in was simple and quick, and we were allowed to go straight to our cabin once aboard which was fantastic. Ship is very smart, looks like a stately home of Art Deco ...

We picked this cruise to see New Zealand, This compete fast began on a sour note with the ship being 6 hours into the cruise and a death occurred on board, the boat returned to Sydney to remove the dead person. We set back out for New Zealand but the Capt said its a bit of a rough sea so will will cut our speed (10 knots). we were then told because of the time lost we wont be going to ...

60th Anniversary present to ourselves

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

As this cruise was leaving from MELBOURNE and was a special event for us we thought CUNARD would be worth cruising with as have never cruised with them before. it did not disappoint, everything from entertainment, food,cleanliness of rooms was wonderful. and would like to give a big shout out to Jonash who kept our room immaculate. Food was exceptional, whether dining room or on 9th floor for ...

Under staffed, rude staff,food gone down hill

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

Chose this cruise as it was a food cruise, didn’t realise when we booked that all the chefs dinners were going to be at large extra cost. Hence we didn’t do any as exchange rate Australian dollar to US $ is very poor. Have sailed on this boat prior to Covid and have no memories of anything to complain about. It seems they either can’t get staff or are just trying to save money. Took 20 minutes or ...

The Worst Cruise I've been on and would not recommed

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

Jen Nee
6-10 Cruises • Age 40s

We sailed on the Queen Elizabeth over Xmas and New Year. Part of our package included transfers from the airport. This was the start of the issues. There was no communication about where to meet or who to meet once we get off our flight at Melbourne Airport. We were stuffed around with the transfers to the ship. Once onboard we headed straight to the kids' club with our six-year-old, to ensure ...

Fantastic value and good quality.

Our first time back on Cunard since pre COVID but have done many Princess and Holland america cruises. Both HAL and Princess have cutback on so many things and added extra charges for many things that were once free . The Royal class Princess ships are like travelling in a Westfield mall with most bars speciality restaurants and lounges opening off the main atrium which hold aerobics and ...

Lovely, relaxing cruise aboard a beautiful ship

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

I travelled from Melbourne with my Mother on a 5 night cruise to Hobart, Tasmania. We really enjoyed our time on board this cruise. Cunard's Queen Elizabeth is in very good condition and is a beautiful, well appointed ship. Embarkation was exceptionally smooth and I think we were onboard in less than 15 minutes. We had originally booked a Brittannia Club Stateroom on Deck 8, but I bid for ...

Pleasant cruise with a Covid sting in the tail

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

Mocha17
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

This is our third Cunard cruise, but like the furnishings in our cabin, the experience is wearing a bit thin and tired. While the day lectures offered were good, the nighttime theatre entertainment was merely glossy and without depth. Could something other than modern pop style music be presented? Meals and service were generally ok, as delivered by the hard working crew. But the LIdo buffet ...

A Most Enjoyable Cruise

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

AndrewnRhonda
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

This was our second cruise on QE, a five-day voyage from Melbourne to Hobart (with an overnight stay) and return to Melbourne. Our previous cruise was in March 2023, a repositioning voyage from Melbourne to Singapore. Although the repositioning cruise was most enjoyable, there were some service issues resulting from staff shortages. Happily, the Hobart cruise did exceed all our ...

Cunard comes back to the pack.

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Queen Elizabeth

FluCruiser
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Having completed a 25 day cruise on Cunard Queen Victoria in 2017, the differences between now and then are stark, and that's not in a good way. The Food: 1. Duck is now chicken. 2. Buffet has country of origin theme nights, which means the chicken cooked in a slightly different way, or with a different spice. 3. Desert is a variation on moose, with flavours cycled through the ...
