We have been with Cunard now on 3 occasions and whilst they are not our most favoured cruise line we chose this cruise because of the destinations which were part of the 2014 World Cruise which for this segment visited Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Colombo, Mumbai, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. We have been to Singapore and Dubai before but missed Abu Dhabi on a previous cruise because of civil unrest ...

The process for boarding was very good although you had to find your own way to your Cabin (Stateroom as they call the). The Cabins are very good & larger than most Cruise lines. However from then on it goes down hill. The whole ship had the smell of wet carpet as it appears that the air con is leaking thoughout the ship & the smell at night in the public areas was quite strong & you had to avoid ...

Background Information - we are a married couple in our late 60's and are experienced cruisers having sailed with various lines including Cunard over the past 15 years. We were attracted to this final sector of the World Cruise, as we love sea days and the itinerary interested us. Our package included flights from London to Dubai and two nights’ accommodation in Dubai. To put this review in ...

Wonderful Solo Experience

I am prompted to write this review as I have read little or nothing about the solo traveller experience on the Queen Elizabeth and was pleasantly surprised. As background I am a single female in my early 60's. I booked this trip prior to taking a 28 day trans Pacific on the Celebrity Solstice so I anticipated a similar lack of provision for, or recognition of, the solo traveller - and ...

Just back from above. Had a really nice time. Met some lovely people. The itinery was very good. Jordan (Petra) and Dubai were really interesting. Positives first:       Ship very easy to get around. I never got lost once in three weeks!   Balconies fairly large compared to some other cruises weve been on.   Food quality in the Britannia good to very good on most nights.   Daily dancing ...

Beautiful Ship, Inconsistent Service

The procedure for boarding the ship was amazingly fast and efficient. From arrival at the dock to being on-board took no more than 10 minutes. However, once on board, travelers were on their own, with no assistance available to orient themselves or even find their cabin. Fortunately, the ship is laid out logically and signage was good. Luggage arrived very quickly and was undamaged.The QE is a ...
