We have been with Cunard in the Queens Grill a number of times, so obviously like it, and get what we expect. Particularly enjoyable about Cunard is the sense of serenity and spaciousness, so the ship almost never seems crowded, which ... Read more

This was the first ever cruise for both me and my partner. Cunard wasn't our first choice. We had planned to go with Celebrity Cruises on recommendation however there were a few snags with the cruise we were considering and we looked for ... Read more

It has been many years since we sailed on a truly dreadful Cunard cruise, and after 40 + cruises with other lines, we decided to give it another try - fortunately we were very impressed and have already booked another cruise for November. ... Read more

To give my wife an experience of a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords was the task to help celebrate our 10th! Frankly the thought of being cooped up with thousands of people did not appeal and we had put off cruising for years. After a lot of ... Read more

From the embarkation to disembarkation the whole experience was wonderful. I have sailed with P&O before which was very nice, but Cunard really was a different class. We had a balcony cabin on the 8th deck. The cabin was spacious, ... Read more

First let me state that this was the second of two back to back cruises my friend and I took (the first being to Spain and Portugal.) Truthfully by the end of the second cruise I felt a bit jaded, overfed and kind of done with the famous ... Read more

We loved the Queen Elizabeth and thought she was a beautiful, traditional ship. The ship is not too big, which gives it a very friendly feel as we often bumped into people we’d eaten breakfast with etc. Embarkation was efficient ... Read more

If you like the older style of passenger ship, then this Queen Elizabeth may appeal. Although beset with lines of balconies which would fit well into a Benidorm apartment block, the overall shape, albeit without any sheer at all, is ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise because of the itinerary. The embarkation process ran smoothly and we did not have to wait too long to board the ship in Singapore. We had a cabin near to mid-ship on Deck 4 with an obstructed view ... Read more

My first cruise as a solo traveller but part of an escorted tour. As a result, I cannot compare with other cruises. However, I am a seasoned luxury solo traveller (mainly SE Asia). I have to say that QE generally does not compare with ... Read more
