Pros: * Very organised to come on board the cruise * Cleaners kept the ship super clean, especially the toilets. * Cabin staff are so polite and very hard working at maintaining a high standard of cabins * Dessert buffet for New Years Eve was Beyond Amazing with all the ice sculptures. * Santa coming on the cruise ship and every child received a great present which we weren’t ...

We went Queens Grill on a short cruise in December 2019. It cost a lot of obey but it was a special occasion so we booked it. It was awful from beginning to end. The butler didn’t even exist. We never saw him once. So although Cunard advertise this wonderful person who will pamper you good luck with that you have more chance of meeting Santa. He was meant to great us and show us to our room ...

We chose this cruise to celebrate my partner's birthday with a transatlantic crossing that included many destinations on our bucket list. We have been on other cruises in the Mediterranean and also South America - they were fabulous experiences that cemented our enjoyment of cruising. What we didn't know was that Cunard really only cater for people over 70. For people in this age category the ...

We thought we were going on a luxury cruise holiday. The ship needed an update. We were promised first setting of evening dinning for health reasons but we did not get this. When spoken to Maître-de & Purser this was denied and not available to us. Some of the service staff looked and acted as though they didn't wish to be there. Disembarkation in Sydney treatment by Customs very ...

Disaster. Trading on a bygone era and name that no longer exist.

This cruise was a treat for a special occasion. All of Cunard's advertising exudes 'Luxury and Glamour'. We did not know that we had paid all that money to join the last leg of around the world cruise for a 'don't care home'!! Our checkin and boarding was a disaster as we were checked into the room I had booked, but in some one else's name! We subsequently were hawked about a couple of floors ...

Cunard have it all wrong

Review for Queen Elizabeth to Transatlantic

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

We are easy to please - pleasing surroundings and public areas, excellent food, quality entertainment, good service, and comfortable cabin. Whilst cabin service could not be faulted and the cabin was great, everything else fell far short of expectation. In no particular order. The cheap plastic seats in the Britannia dining room make your legs sweat profusely and a horrible feeling when you stand ...

A disappointed Cunard regular cruiser

Review for Queen Elizabeth to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Because it was over Christmas and New Year and visited Madeira which is a lovely port especially at this time of year. We were disappointed that the rules regarding smoking cigarettes in the Churchill lounge were not adhered to. We spoke and wrote to the Captain but still the room was filled with female smokers - totally against the so -called rules. We have never experienced this ...

Poor service, cold food, poor food and smelled like an open sewer.

Embarkation was fine. The cabin was well presented and serviced well. Didn't get into Bruge because of bad weather. Entertainment was basic to say the least. Sometimes nearly impossible to get a drink ....even when sat at the bar. We ordered some sandwiches one lunchtime and they never arrived. The food in the Brittannia restaurant was cold and unappetising so we tried the buffet which was exactly ...

Never again will we cruise with Cunard. Poor service, complacent staff who don't understand service-missed port. Very disappointed as we have always been very satisfied with Cunard on previous cruises. We booked this short break having sailed with many other cruise lines including Cunard and have never had such a disappointing experience. The cabin and cabin staff to be fair were excellent. ...
