We booked last minute, suite 7044 in Queens grill. Some aspects of cruise were excellent. The suite was a good size with large balcony and new balcony furniture. The much hyped refit did not include cabin furniture, our coffee table was ... Read more

The title says it all. This was silver spoon service without trying. If you don't like formal then don;t come on board, but if you do - wow! The ship is excellent, the destinations were really good (and varied). My wife, being a ... Read more

Life aboard the Queen Elizabeth was a bit like living at Cliveden/the Ritz or in endless episodes of Downton Abbey, or in a novel by P.G Wodehouse or Agatha Christie. We were constantly surrounded by live music of all types, and with one ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary around the British Isles, with stops in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Orkney Islands, Dublin, Liverpool, and Guernsey. We had sailed on the former QE2 many years ago. The current Queen ... Read more

There's a lot to like about QV, but the food in the Britannia dining room, an important part of cruising, is not one of them. Tough steaks, dry roast pork, tasteless sea bass, endless steamed vegetables, in fact the only way to describe ... Read more

We originally booked this cruise to experience a different cruise line, and port destinations, expecting to have a great first class summer escape from our winter. Regrettably reality did not meet expectation. Embarcation went very ... Read more

I don't normally do reviews, especially bad ones so I apologise if it rambles instead of following some format. Chose this cruise to travel with some friends, some issues were our fault as we did not give it as much research time as we ... Read more

Four of our friends had sailed on the Queen Mary 2 in the last few years and these two couples had been encouraging us to do the crossing (New York to Southampton) ourselves. In fact, one couple wanted to do it again so we took them up on ... Read more

We had always wanted to do an eastbound transatlantic cruise and arrive without being jet lagged! The ship was unlike any we had previously been on, being slightly differently organised. It was uniformly excellent. We were not in any ... Read more

The staff were very good indeed, in particular, the Head Waiter in the Queen's Grill, our butler Joel, and our deck 10 waiter, Dragan. The smoking area my wife and I used was forward on deck 10 and not cleaned overnight. It was filthy and ... Read more

Diamond members so expected to walk straight on as with the last few cruises. Few problems embarking but still only took 30 minutes to be in our cabin. Cunard fare so able to pick our balcony cabin 4159. No welcome back sign in the cabin. ... Read more

Cabin 10133 on Cunard Queen Mary to ship travelling out on 24 May for two nights. We stayed in a penthouse suite. The suite was quite nice but there was certainly no butler service. Just a room steward whom we saw a couple of times if ... Read more

From the embarkation to disembarkation the whole experience was wonderful. I have sailed with P&O before which was very nice, but Cunard really was a different class. We had a balcony cabin on the 8th deck. The cabin was spacious, ... Read more
