Luxury 10 day Jail sentence
"I spent 10 days prior to the cruise researching, contacting people working out train times and bus times to allow us to visit specific sites whilst ashore at each destination, luckily no advanced tickets or payments were made prior to the voyage.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...."Read More

Disappointing

Review for Queen Elizabeth to Alaska

The Alaska itinerary was as we expected and included 2 days viewing glaciers at close range. We have sailed the QE before, and the food was disappointing this time. We like lamb, but it was on the dinner menu 4 times on one week, plus some lunches. The same was true of orange roughy. There was a sirloin steak once, but no other steaks in the main dining room. No filet mignon, and no New York ...

Pros: *Cunard’s unable to improve its service. It is ‘top notch’ with exemplary care provided by the crew. *Ship is well appointed with class throughout. *Good instrumental entertainment. *MDR cuisine is mostly innovative and exceptional. *Cunard ‘knows how’ to make coffee unlike the insipid liquid served on many other lines. *Embarkation well organized. *Although the staff ...

This was our third cruise on the QE – and the second time in Princess Grill on this ship. A detailed review of the ship is not necessary as there has been plenty written about it. I will just mention a few things that are outstanding: I think the Grand lobby, the Royal Court Theatre and the Commodore Club are the finest we have experienced on any ship. The elegant two-storey library gets an ...

The cruise was going fine and we were celebrating my husbands 70th birthday. It all turned very sour when we both contracted Covid. I tested positive first and my husband 3 days later. It then became a very distressing experience. I was escorted to my isolation cabin, passing several other guests along the way. I was initially placed in an Ocean View cabin but eventually moved to a cabin with a ...

Terrible ending for Cunard cruise

In May we boarded the Queen Elizabeth for a cruise from Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco. Only after we embarked did we discover that there were active cases of Covid on board. Mask wearing was poor, social distancing weak and, worst of all there was no control of passenger and crew freely exploring each port of call. In sharp contrast to a cruise, on the same ship, which we took in October 2021 ...

Special birthday cruise with Cunard in the middle of May 2022 was the reason for this cruise plus it seemed good value as it was a re positioning journey finally ending in Alaska.We had a good ball cabin kept immaculate by our excellent steward and took dinner at 8.30 (a bit late for us).All meals were excellent as per usual.Vegetables are never cooked enough though making them too inedible for ...

We chose this cruise because although we had sailed QM2 several times Transatlantic, we had never been on the QE. The dates fit our schedule—sail the QM2 over to Southampton, a week in England and sail the QE back Southampton to Fort Lauderdale. Our leg was the beginning of the QE’s longer leg, she will be sailing over a month, all the way to Alaska. My observations: Embarkation in Southampton ...

A Cautionary Tale

Recently my wife and I took a 28-day cruise from Southampton to San Francisco. Covid-19 dogged the entire 9,615 nautical miles of the voyage. Our troubles began even before we boarded Queen Elizabeth. Cunard demanded a certified negative antigen test dated no more than 24 hours before boarding. That meant finding a provider open on a Sunday – which we did eventually at a cost of £70. Not once ...

We returned home yesterday from QE voyage Southampton to San Francisco and had a wonderful time aboard. On arriving in Southampton at 12.15 as requested we were surprised by the number of passengers waiting for Covid testing. Obvious the stated time was not adhered to. However we were onboard and having lunch in the restaurant by 1.45pm. We were in Grills and had a lovely suite, plenty of ...

The first part of the cruise, Southampton to San Francisco in my case, was fine although there being only about 1300 passengers it was rather lifeless. The second part on entry to the Pacific was a disaster. Before reaching Manzanillo in Mexico the ship was rife with Covid. Both myself and wife were isolated in a state room reportedly with another 300 people supposedly. Whether one or two ...
