SUCH A DELIGHT

Review for Queen Elizabeth to Trans-Ocean

We just booked this at the very last moment as it was sailing from Cape Town to Southampton and were delighted there was space. This was our first Cunard experience, but I think virtually all other passengers were long-time fans of Cunard. I really cannot find anything to complain about. Check-in was professional and we received our suitcases relatively quickly. The cabin was a decent size, ...

Cruised from Dubai to Southampton from the 19th.April-10th. May ----had a sheltered stateroom -4021-which our steward , Dayle , kept immaculate , there wasn't anything that was too much trouble for him even supplying us with fresh milk daily rather than using sachets of milk. The Stateroom was very good with plenty on storage and where we were situated was very quite , no noise from anywhere and ...

This was our 5th Cunard cruise and second on QM2. The cruise was 3 weeks from Dubai to Southampton transiting the Suez Canal which we had never done before, this and visitng Petra was the main reason we booked with Cunard as our travel agent had a pre cruise offering of a South Africa trip 3 days 2 nights travelling on Rovos Rail from Petoria to Capetown and 2 nights in Cape Town before flying ...

What has happened to Cunard.—— 63 days Sydney to Southampton

This is our fifth cruise on the Queen Mary 2 and this last trip was 63 days long and I really think they have lost sight on what sort of ship they are trying to have. Refinement seems to have disappeared and has been replaced with indifference. There is no contact in Sydney and speaking to someone in the Phillipines about a problem in Brisbane could not be resolved as the person on the other end ...

We made a atlantic crossing 2016 with Cunard QM2 from Hamburg to New York. It was New York fashion week theme 9 day cruise. The Programm and Food was excellent. Our cabin and restaurant was Princess Grill Category. We were very happy with this cruise. Unfortunately this last Cunard cruise was not up to our expectations. We had again a Princess Grill Suite. Eating and dining was not very good, ...

We chose this cruise to experience the Suez Canal and for that the cruise was very successful. How did I rate the cruise overall - average I suppose? The food was good, especially buffet breakfast and lunch, loved the stir-fry and Thai noodle soup. The Kings Court always felt crowded, unless you dined early or late. The ship must have had over 2500 on board, but apart from the buffet and the rush ...

Super Cruise but Unsatisfactory City Stay in Cape Town.

Chose this cruise across the Indian Ocean as it visited lots of places that we had not seen before. Also, it was in the sunshine! Great cruise, super service and everything was spot on. The food quality was OK but not 'special' as we expected from a premium cruise line. The amounts on the plate were quite modest but that was OK with us as we are not big people. However, the price of drinks was a ...

We have cruised before many times, an expensive error was assuming QM2 & Cunard would prove an upmarket ship&cruise,although the entertainment average,the food in the Britannia Rest.nothing short of a disaster @ all times many cold meals replaced on request only to have the same again,some tables all meals sent back ,dress code for the Australian Port of calls dubious¬ policed, sad for passengers ...

Disappointed

Have been on 3 previous cruises that we loved. This time, boarding was slow, crew were morose for half the cruise until a few became friendly. Ship had been refitted, and in our opinion, whilst still great, was not as good as before with the changes. Entire drink menu mixers were changed so that drinks you previously liked, now were terrible with no option to have previous mixes. Restaurant ...

One of the things you have to remember about joining a Cunard Round The World Voyage, is that the people who can spare the time and money to take a trip like this are likely to be retired and spending the kids inheritance. This means that many of them have had decades to perfect their rudeness. On this, my third Cunard cruise, I was amazed at the sheer number of bad mannered people with sharp ...
