  3. Queen Elizabeth
This was a fabulous first real experience of Cruising. The ship was a holiday in itself.Loved every minute. Excelent destinations too. The service, food, entertainment and facilities just excellent. We had DeLuxe Inside 'Stateroom' and it was OK, plenty of space and afterall, you are only going to sleep/relax there. Would have a Balcony if I could afford it. Be under no illusion QE is money making machine, charges reflect the captive market, eg. In the Britannia Restaurant, * Two Glasses Sauvignon Blanc was 32 dollars. Moved to a bottle for 42. * Theres a treal opportunity to 'Digital Detox':. WiFi. 2 hours cost 50 dollars Mobile service provided by BT Maritime. Cost £10 per mb. Able to buy 4mb for £4 via BT Mobile. Relied on in port network connection and a BT 100mb uplift at £4. Total spent was £42 * Need illumated clock in Inside Stateroom or use telly. If charging phone only plug is away from the bed side * Only one plug point. Charging needs either extension or additional travel plug to use American fitting as well as UK one. * Quality of projector for cinema and presentations was poor. * Dont be shy in using local tours at half cost of Cunard ones. Having said that, the 2 Cunard Tours we did were excellent.

Just Magic
