Pros: * Very organised to come on board the cruise * Cleaners kept the ship super clean, especially the toilets. * Cabin staff are so polite and very hard working at maintaining a high standard of cabins * Dessert buffet for New Years Eve was Beyond Amazing with all the ice sculptures. * Santa coming on the cruise ship and every child received a great present which we weren’t expecting. * Beautiful Library * Bathroom amenities in both the cabins and at the wellness centre were fantastic. Shavers, mouth wash, combs ect were provided. * Outdoor Pool and Spa were very clean and water was tested every 4hrs. * Met some really lovely people. * Entertainment was great with the dancers being an absolute standout along with the vocalist and the violinist was beyond outstanding!!! But, you really need to have a variety of young fresh acts Cons: * The people on the cruise are majority over 75 and we had a lot of run-ins with the elderly as they felt entitled to tell my kids whatever they felt like saying. They were told not to eat burgers as it will make them fat (mind you they are very fit kids), telling them to move away from their feet, to be quiet while we were at lunch as a family while they were reading a book, not to lean to a bench, and the list just goes on and on! * If you are not over 75 there really is no activity to do as a young family. The “activities” on board is to attend sampling alcohol at a cost, learn to water paint at a cost, play bridges, attend a choir, play bingo, attend LGBT gathering, build a boat and see who’s can float challenge, all singers/bands and djs only play older songs. * The alcohol is an absolute rip off at $17 a drink US!! Lots of people were bringing alcohol and soft drinks on board and making it themselves. Lucky we are not drinkers! * They have 2 seperate kids clubs so my kids had to be separated as they are different ages. The older room is fantastic but, the other room is set up for a baby not for 6-7 year olds. * Apart from the dancers, vocalist and the Violinist performance who were Outstanding!! The other acts were Average/Boring! All suited for 75+ * Don’t book Excursions through cruise ship as there are many tours on land at a cheaper cost. And they are all available. Great tip from other passengers. * To change Australian money to NZ money on board you have to change it to US first and then to NZ! Wellington take Australian money but, you can also use your card and there are plenty of places to exchange money on land. * We were told by other passengers that we didn’t have to pay the $800 US TIP that they automatically put on our statement. We removed it and paid tips to the staff that worked so hard at the end of our cruise. * To use the “hydro spa and sauna” was extra cost at $35 a day US or $280US for 14 days. Other cruise liners are for free. * We weren’t told that there was 1 free yoga class to attend. * Witnessed so many passengers swear at staff that didn’t need to be spoken to in that manner. Lots of stuck up snobs on this cruise! But, met lovely people too! * Security - My 8 year old child scanned my card to get off ship and they let him through and I asked how did you let him through when it has my picture??? They apologised and re-scanned his card. *NO BIG SCREEN OUTSIDE Read Less

We chose this cruise as wanted to experience a Cunard Christmas and also because as departing from Adelaide and returning to Adelaide, no flights involved. QE didn't let us down- wonderful Christmas trees and decorations everywhere- even had "snow": outside the OLD LION. The itinerary was good and the seas even allowed us to spend Christmas Day cruising the three Sounds. We had an aft Grills cabin and it was a sight to behold watching the NEW YEAR fireworks from our balcony. (in dressing gowns!) The service in the QG was wonderful and the food lived up to usual high standard. A little disappointed with our cabin- nice and large but only one basin the bathroom and also no basin on the bar in the cabin, which we always find very handy Going on QV soon -can anyone tell me if the QG Aft cabins have 2 basins in the bathroom and also on the bar area of the cabin. We enjoyed all the guest speakers , films were good, shore activities arranged very well all in all Cunard did well and put the sparkle back into Christmas for us!!! Read Less

Why not spent some nights on the Queen Elizabeth as part of Pre Xmas celebrations, I thought. We were on her not so long ago in Feb and then in April on her way to Japan for the Sakura or Cherry Blossom. So this is really, a novel way for us to past the time away. We were just back from her sister ship in the Med in Sept. Making the best use of her while she is in Australian waters. Otherwise, it will be a long flight to London and coach to Southampton. We note some differences sailing here and in Europe. Some of our Aussies are pretty laid back to the point that some wear, thongs and shorts and T-shirts for the evening performances in the Royal Court Theatre and other places in the evening. It is like a country bush setting for some of them and they might be missing the salient point of cruising on the Cunard. We have heard previous comedians joking about the Aussie dressing standards which you have to laugh when you think about how true it is. Seriously, couldn't some of them put a little bit more effort to dress and look good for one's sake and lend a bit more ambience to the evening for everyone's sake. Britannia served some excellent food and lobsters, my favourite marine crustacean delicacy on the 2 formal nights and on 3 other nights. This totally, repudiated my one gripe about the lack of lobster when we were sailing on the Queen Victoria in Sep/Oct. Either the executive chef must have heard my gripe or sailing in Tasmania, means lots of lovely lobsters for all of us. The selection of dining cuisine was very good and delicious and certainly, much better than our recent experience in her sister ship. Lucky, maybe. Entertainment was excellent and as to be expected. We loved Top Hats show performed by the Royal Court Theatre dancers and singers. Good story and good acting. Horace stole the show, we think but Bettini was funny. And so are the Palladium Nights and Hollywood Nights shows. Lana MacFarlane provided the lovely vocals and Tom Scott the guitarist, and the Queens Room Orchestra, provided some lovely music for dancing which we enjoyed very much. That is how we past our time away. We visited the Emu Valley Rhododendron gardens and the famous Hellyer Whisky distillery. The gardens were pretty and well landscaped and I imagined will be even much more beautiful during spring when the flowers blossom or in autumn, when the foliage turned yellow and red. In Hobart, we walked about Salamanca place and went shopping in Elizabeth street downtown and in Adelaide, the ship generously provided an hour long drive shuttle bus to Rundle Mall shopping centre, and so we did more shopping. The winds exceeded 22 nautical miles per hour and for the passengers safety, we were not allowed to tender to go to Kangaroo island. This must have disappointed many hundreds of passengers especially those with children wanting to see some lively kangaroos and seals. Our monies for the full day excursion monies were automatically refunded very quickly and seaday activities were immediately put on by the ship entertainment team to keep everyone happy and busy. What a great effort by all. Overall, we were very happy with the cruise. We met many interesting and lovely people on board. The service was very good and friendly throughout the ship. Looking forward to the next cruise to NZ next month. Read Less
