Booked this 10 day cruise around the British Isles in order to kill 2 birds with one stone, to having a lovely luxurious cruise and visiting 5 destinations with the objective of visiting a 1 or 2 locations, we had not been to, at each port of call. It turned out that we had a luxury cruise that was excellent in terms of staff, meals, entertainment and cabin but not going ashore for 10 days was ...

A short break on a cruise ship locally during Covid restrictions. The third one since June having used Marella Explorer and Virgin Scarlet Lady. The food and cabin were of the usual high standard. Boarding lacked pre information as to going to Mayflower terminal for the Covid test and lack of help from port staff to move wheelchair and cases from car to terminal plus being misdirected for 2nd ...

Partly due to the sheer inability to cruise anywhere for SO long, due to you know what C19, and the fact that it was a Southampton and back trip so easy access for us Hampshire folk, made this Queen Elizabeth British cruise a worthwhile and easy trip to pick. We chose a Princess Grill suite having done a PG trip on QE around the Baltic back in June 2017 and found it close to the level we have ...

I was apprehensive of going on this cruise and wondered what impact the Covid restrictions would have. I needn't have worried! We have had a fantastic cruise, start to finish. Covid testing and Embarcation was smooth and efficient. Differences from the norm were that there was no help yourself buffet, and mandatory mask wearing when moving around inside and whilst watching theatre ...

We have just returned home from 7 nights on Queen Elizabeth’s “Scenic Cruising around Scotland’s Highlands and Islands”. This was Cunard’s first cruise since the Covid Pandemic, so here’s a summary of what we found to be new and different in the world of post Covid Cruising with Cunard Covid Testing You may have heard stories about people’s bad experiences in finding the Covid Testing ...

We didn’t plan to be on the first cruise back after lockdown but after earlier cruises were cancelled it turned out that way. It was 7 nights from Southampton, sailed up to the Isle of Mull (anchored but didn’t go ashore) and back again. Embarkation - very smooth, very safe. Directed in the luggage hall for a lateral flow test, and then through 2 rounds of health declarations. When our ...

In writing this review I am comparing with the other cruise lines I have been with. These include P&O, Princess and Marella formerly known as TUI (Thompson). I have to say I have never been on a bad cruise (14 so far) and I always wonder why people leave such low scores. Yes, I too have had issues on a ship but they have always resolved them with no stress. However, I have witnessed Mr and Mrs ...

However I booked the cruise just a couple of days out before embarktation at a ridiculous price. So let's on the cruise Overall I can discount a.lot of the critiscim i read on the formality of curnard although on gala nights there is a need to dress up. From boarding the ship and ...

Booked this on board QM2 when the QE's Asian itineraries were all scrapped. Crazy cheap price made this unmissable. Compared to the QM2 this is the inferior ship in almost every single area. The vaunted decoration of the ship looked a bit tacky, a bit Vegas casino, the public rooms felt cramped and crowded. You can't walk to the front of the ship, the gym seems tired. What most surprised ...

We chose this cruise as have never been on Cunard before. As it tied in with our time frame, was a good deal and no Princess cruises available, we wanted to experience it. We are Elite Princess travellers with 23 cruises already taken, so had a lot to compare. Embarkation without priority was very quick and smooth.. surprising with virus scares.(filled in form, had temperature taken, ...
