Everything about this cruise on the Queen Elizabeth was wonderful! The food and service were fabulous and the ship was elegant, beautiful and extremely clean! The cabin was very nice and the bathroom, with it's tile interior, was above and beyond anything else.
The on-board entertainment was also fabulous. Folks, this ship had two orchestras (one in the theater, one in the ballroom), a rock band, a jazz group, a harpist, a string quartet and several piano players to entertain you almost every night! Clearly, this ship is for folks that like music and like to dance. It is nice to see a cruise line support live music like this line does! Yes, this ship is a bit more formal than most, but that is nice for a change and the ship supplies the atmosphere to support that sense of British formality. Dressing up for dinner and the evening entertainment makes the experience that much more special!
I mentioned the food in every venue was way beyond what we have had in other ships. Be sure to try the specialty restaurant called the Verandah. There is an extra charge for this restaurant, but it its well worth it and it earns its reputation as the best restaurant at sea! The tours and on-board activities were all perfect!
I can't tell you how much we enjoyed this cruise. Oh and the Cunard arranged airline flights to and from the US and ship/airport transfers were all excellent and very low cost! One more thing: I've seen some negative reviews of the Queen Elizabeth recently, but quite honestly, I have no idea what they are talking about. This cruise was the best yet and we'll cruise with Cunard again!
P2 cabins are wonderful! The tiled bathrooms with marble counter-tops and two flat screen TV's are a cut above many other cabins. Extra closet space and extra cabin depth are well worth the extra money!
Wonderful city and great port! Our tour was brief but good and we still had some time to explore on our own!Definitely allow some time to explore on your own as the ship docks close to the downtown.
