We were soon on the ship after arriving in Southampton. Our stateroom was a standardbalcony. It had new carpets, bed and settee all good after the recent refurbishment, the bed cover was a really nice blue and we were please to see a bottle of bubbly in an ice bucket ready for us. This room had a nice large television as well. The Captain at the lifeboat drill warned the ship was going into rough water and she was spot on as soon as we reached the Eng Channel. Many people told me they had been sea sick and did not recover until the end of day two when the ship reached calm waters. After this and on the way back we had very calm seas. The ship was very well decorated for Christams and looked lovely, everything was well organised, the ship had an air of calmness. We were given a very nice Christmas card and matching Christmas menu and a present each. Our state attendent Hernando worked tirelessly and there were no issues in respect of the cabin. We loved the free room service especially the brekfasts and lunch sandwich's and warm apple pie and cream!! Time spent in the gym soon got rid of the excess treats. The gym staff were very committed and although I do my own excercises, those that asked for help and training were well advised. Ethan from SA always said hello, even when busy, which was a nice gesture. Although not a fan of gyms in the past I felt good here and felt encouraged to go everyday!. The ship employed several hosts, who danced at the parties no one was pressured to join in, The Spanish hostess Silve had a nice personality and as the floor was never empty guests soon got up and the parties went well. In previous reveiws I had notedthe cost of wine on the ship and this needs looking at as a matter of urgency. Cunnard have the ability to buy good wines at a price which means they can make a profitand sell wine at a price lower than £10.00 a class plus 15% SC. Our bar bill was thelowest ever and this is not to the benefit of the ship sales or staff wages. The weather was particularly good in Tenerife and we had a lovely sea day on Christmas day to enjoy all outside decks and pool. There was always a seat on top deck and there was table tennis and short mat bowls, which was fun. However all too soon we were heading back, with this cruise from Southampton in December you are going to have several days when you are not going to be able to use the outside areas. I would have like to have seen the Officers including the Captain more round the ship, especially on the decks and in the lido doing unannounced spot checks, as this helps to maintain high standards thoughout the ship. Having said my experience was that overall the crew gave everything and I was lucky to share Christmas aboard with them on this lovely ship Queen Elizabeth. Read Less

For my first ever cruise I wanted it to be an unforgettable experience on what I thought of as a "classic" ship, ie one with a black hull, white decks & red funnels. Which is why I ended up booking my maiden voyage on a Cunard ship! From the outset we were very impressed: the Art Deco interior appealed to us greatly, as did the attentive service and friendly staff. Not knowing whether I'd take to cruising, I booked the cheapest cabin option but was still content with the room, even though it was windowless. Frankly, it made little difference as we spent the minimum possible time in it as we enjoyed either the ship's facilities or going ashore opportunities to the full. It seems that Cunard has addressed the niggles mentioned by CC's official reviewer as, for example, the staff in the Lido restaurant were falling over themselves to fill & refill my coffee cup and were only too happy to help guests to their seats with their plates. The entire experience was most enjoyable and - compared to an equivalent stay in a 4.5 / 5 star hotel - excellent value for money. The rigourously enforced formal dress code after 6pm in most areas of the ship appealed greatly, as a welcome short-term respite to the "come as you please" trend that currently holds sway in society. Whilst we were prepared for - and attracted to - the inevitable maturity of our fellow travellers (we DID NOT want our first cruise experience to be on a "party boat"!) we did not expect, as a couple in our 50s, to be amongst the youngest people on board, which was the case. There were a couple of niggles but nothing too serious. For example, the use of the Spa area was an additional cost option, and the formal, complementary cream teas offered at 3.30pm daily were served by surly, seemingly disinterested waiters. But all in all it was a most enjoyable first foray into the world of cruising. Read Less

My partner and I have been on several cruises before, mostly Princess. We wanted to try Cunard, so decided 12 nights for a winter sun break in the Canaries would fit the bill. We chose a balcony cabin in the standard Brittania class. Embarkation: the fastest we’ve ever got on board! From dropping off the car to stepping on board it took 17 minutes. Lovely check in staff and a nice smooth process. First Impression: Queen Elizabeth is gorgeous to look at. The Grand Lobby area is beautiful, with plenty of seating areas and plush carpets. The artwork suits the style and there is a calm and relaxed atmosphere on board. This ship is very quiet during the day, with more guests coming out in the evening. Always lots of space to sit down and relax. Cabin: balcony cabin on deck 8 (the highest deck for accommodation), towards the back of the ship. The cabin was pretty much the same as any other, however we were greeted with some sparkling wine, which was a nice touch. Lots of space to move around and a comfy bed. There was also a sofa, desk and wardrobe. The wardrobe had lots of hanging space, but less room to put things like undies and other folded items. The bathroom was standard sized, with a shower. Other reviews say the shower is small, but it was no different to other ships. Lovely toiletries included! Dining: we selected the early sitting in the Brittania restaurant for dinner and were placed on a table of 6. The food was beyond our expectations in both the main restaurant and the buffet. Every meal at dinner was fabulous, with plenty of choice. The waiters would chat and were always friendly, something we haven’t seen on all cruises. We ate breakfast in the buffet each day as the food was so good. We found the buffet was quiet early in the morning, getting very busy between 9 and 10am. The additional restaurants of Verandah, now a steak house, and the various alternative dining choices were excellent and worth the money. Entertainment: this cruise was definitely aimed st the over 50s, with entertainment certainly more geared towards older people. Ballroom dancing was on every night, and the theatre featured acts such as opera, piano and other singers. There was a comedian on one night who was great. On the whole, the entertainment was the weakest part of this cruise. The cruise director, Chris was boring as hell. Every day, the activity schedule was virtually the same as the previous day, with most evening activities centred around listening to music and ballroom dancing. Overall, we loved this cruise but there were definitely areas for improvement. The drinks are very expensive on board, with most alcoholic drinks costing upwards of $10. We bought a soft drinks package each, which was good value for our needs. We found that the crew were much nicer on this ship, with pretty much all crew greeting passengers around the ship. The onboard shops had a weird, unfriendly vibe. We strolled round the clothes shop, and the assistant stalked behind us constantly, making us feel unwelcome. All the shop staff were overly cautious of people looking at or touching their stock. We would definitely book with Cunard again, as the positives were so massively outweighing any negatives! Will also investigate some dance lessons so we can take part more... Read Less
