We loved the Queen Elizabeth and thought she was a beautiful, traditional ship. The ship is not too big, which gives it a very friendly feel as we often bumped into people we’d eaten breakfast with etc. Embarkation was efficient ... Read more

If you like the older style of passenger ship, then this Queen Elizabeth may appeal. Although beset with lines of balconies which would fit well into a Benidorm apartment block, the overall shape, albeit without any sheer at all, is ... Read more

We joined Queen Elizabeth on the 20th April in Cape Town. We had travelled on quite a few cruises on Queen Mary, but wow we were blown away by Queen Elizabeth. From the moment we stepped aboard, our holiday began and it was wonderful ... Read more

We like Cunard for still keeping the style of cruising. There are some formal nights with formal/cocktail dress ups, but we like it. We like that the company keep the same dress code for dinners at the restaurant. It is classical style. ... Read more

We travelled in QM2 for a short 10-day leg of the ship's current world cruise, taking advantage of a generous sale that had been advertised. In short, the experience was everything we expected, and more. Every aspect of the ship's ... Read more
