Cunard Queen Elizabeth starting to become very poor value.

We chose a back to back cruise to celebrate our birthdays. The first 12 nights we were Club Balcony and the second 17 nights on Princess Grills. I will talk about dining later. The Club Balcony we chose was on deck 7 with an extended very large curved balcony, the stateroom is similar to most other balcony cabins but at an increased cost due to the Club Dining. Most Club Balconies offered are ...

A delight to be back

Finally, at, I think, our seventh attempt we made it back on to a Cunard ship, and enjoyed ourselves very much. We have cruised with Cunard many times and were pleased to see everything was much as expected, with a few differences because of Covid. By far the worst part was embarkation which took about an hour and three quarters rather than the usual 20 minutes. I’m not sure why this was, ...

Great to be back on board the QE even if for only 4 days. Our first cruise for 30 months since the pandemic. Fast efficient check in. Pleased with covid precautions still in place. Ship very clean and the food and services all to a very good standard considering the circumstances. Special mention to Antonio for looking after us so well (again) in the Britannia Restaurant. Entertainment most ...

Princess Grill versus standard Brittany's balcony

Having spent 2 weeks on QE in November on a cruise to the canaries & maderia in a standard balcony cabin I thought it would be useful to some to compare experiences of a short trip to Amsterdam in princess grill in March. The first obvious difference is space. The princess Grill cabin was approx a third bigger overall, however contains a walk in dressing area with a spacious bathroom with a ...

Awful experience with Cunard Queen Elizabeth

As regular cruise travellers with American cruise lines (20+) we were excited to try a short cruise on Cunard. We booked this four night cruise on Queen Elizabeth from Southampton to Amsterdam. The first impression of this Ship was good but our experience soon went spiraling down. The Stateroom attendant was initally pleasant but ignored us after the first meeting. The bed sheets were not ...

Having been five cruise lines, I as a person of color have never been so insulted and felt so discriminated against than we did on board our recent trip to Norway on the Queen Elizabeth. From the public demeaning ways the staff of color were treated by the white management, to the impatience of the excursion desk rep with my wife's Japanese accent (who received a college education in the US), from ...

Have cruised many times but this was our first cruise on a Cunard ship. Arrived at Southampton docks - testing very quick - results very quick but car-park drop off area busy. Welcome greeting as we stepped onto the ship and given directions to our balcony cabin - very good and roomy. All meals good. We had breakfast in the Buffet which was a one way system with food served onto our plates ...

We loved our first cruise back on Queen Elizabeth and thought the pandemic measures put in place were appropriate. Being tested before we could board the ship was scary but handled very efficiently. Service was great throughout the ship. Cabin steward was really efficient - so much so that we rarely saw him! Food in the Britannia restaurant exceeded our expectations. Food at Lido buffet was ...

I picked this cruise for my wife’s birthday and the fact that it was only a week. We had a suite at the back of the boat. Having not cruised before I feel I was I’ll advised on the location of the cabin as we felt the full movement of the boat. The food and service was very good however there are hidden costs that I was not made aware of, namely the service charges. 15% is added to every ...

Princess grill 13 Feb 2022 to Lisbon. Our first time Cunard (after Seabourn , Azamara, Viking), and first time ex Southampton. Like others we were confused by the joining instructions. the "covid" tent is indeed hard to find in the docks area , and 2 miles/20 minutes from the QE terminal building. As grill guests you get "priority boarding" which was speedy and painless. She is apparently ...
