Queen Elizabeth met all expectations


We chose this cruise for the unusual itinerary and the ship. We had been on the Queen Elizabeth for the entire maiden World Cruise in 2011 , and were curious to discover the changes that had taken place in the ...

Relaxing but sedate

We chose this cruise as a relaxing way to get home from South Africa. The ship gave a grand impression with wood paneling a feature. It appeared well maintained. For those who get sea sick, there was quite a ...

Beautiful ship. Clean and well maintained. Crew needs to learn how to smile

Took easiest and most comfortable way to meet Oceania Nautica in Cape Town. Excellent port calls. Better than flying. 5* Art Deco furnishings. 3* service. Staff does not smile and does not greet guests unless guest ...

Queen Elizabeth

We sailed from San Francisco (February 4, 2017), with final destination in Sydney. It sure beat having to fly from Orlando, to Sydney. There were stops in Oahu, Maui, Western Samoa, Tonga, Auckland, and Bay of ...

Voyage of the Damned

We had heard how wonderful Cunard were and how much better than all their rivals. We should have seen a red light when our first two encounters were being told to board a few hours later than planned due to ...

So disappointed

We booked this trip as the 'holiday of a lifetime', it certainly was not. The cabin we were allocated 1041 had plumbing that did not always work, apparently because of the rough weather - this seemed to be a known ...

Not Your Normal Crossing!

In October I found a good deal (interior, OV, and balcony all the same price) for the first 11 days of QE's 2015 World Voyage from Southampton to Fort Lauderdale. I let Cunard book my one-way airfare to London and ...

First Cruise on QE

Left Southampton nearly 12 hours late, after a real mess up with the embarkation. 1000 passengers were held in a football stadium and the other 1000 were sent, after the stadium was full, to the terminal. That's ...

I boarded the QE on January 10, 2014 for a West-bound Transatlantic cruise immediately following my East-bound Transatlantic on Queen Mary 2. Both were beautiful experiences, though very different. The QE is much ...

Tradition, formality, and civility! It still exists on Cunard.

My partner and I recently returned from a 12-day Mediterranean cruise onboard Cunard's QUEEN ELIZABETH. This ranks as one of those trips that was just about as near perfect as one could wish for. For those only ...

Norwegian Fjords much better than expected

The Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria are the same size and smaller ships laid out in the same way. The QE is much newer being just over 2 years old so is very modern. I've not been on the QV yet. We found the ...

Disappointed in our T/A

No white glove welcome at Southampton. A junior rating called out welcome and that was that - find your own way. After 4 hour wait for our one piece of luggage I went to hunt it down - cabin stewardess said she ...
