Queen Elizabeth - Worst Cruise I have ever experienced

Whilst the destination was what we had hoped for, the Queen Elizabeth is a hopeless shambles. We chose Cunard as we have cruised on QM2 previously and that was superb in almost every way. On the QE, waiting ...

Arrogant Cunard Treats Passengers As An Inconvenience

We selected the Christmas Cruise to the Canaries on the basis of a similar cruise on Caronia in 2002. That cruise was excellent and Caronia certainly lived up to the then Cunard image. Move on ten years, and ...
