Fantastic cruise and ship

Extremely underwhelmed

We chose this cruise having previously travelled with celebrity and expecting the Cunard name to be synonymous with quality. It seems that the name Cunard was acquired but most of the quality of service and cache ...

Excellent value, slightly subdued

Embarked smoothly on previous cruise at Ocean terminal and disembarked this one at Mayflower - so anyone who had parked at the port had to have their cars transferred. We had used Airlynx who shuttled us to their ...

A very pleasant way to spend Christmas 2016

This was our first experience, as sixty-somethings, of cruising and, overall, we were not disappointed. The Queen Elizabeth may lack the exterior grace of its earlier namesake (the 1938 version), but offers ...

We embarked from Southampton on 12th December 2016 on a ten night all inclusive cruise. This all inclusive cruise was a first for us with Cunard and entitled us to all drinks under $9.00. As many of you will ...
