  3. Queen Elizabeth
We loved the Queen Elizabeth and thought she was a beautiful, traditional ship. The ship is not too big, which gives it a very friendly feel as we often bumped into people we’d eaten breakfast with etc. Embarkation was efficient and fast. There were no check-in delays and no waiting to board. Our balcony cabin of deck 6 was in an excellent location. The bed was extremely comfortable. There was a full bottle of sparkling wine. The shower room although small was perfectly adequate and had all that was necessary. We ate in the Britannia dining room on the 2nd sitting and had a wonder group of people on our table for 6. We really looked forward to seeing them at the end of the day for lively conversation and laughter. The food was excellent and the varied menu made if difficult for us to choose. The food was always generally hot and always well-presented. As I'm not keen on desserts I chose the fruit platter each evening which was great. The entertainment was really varied and very enjoyable: a great illusionist, well known on the circuit. A comedian and four wonderful opera trained female singers, Aida. They sang a range of popular opera arias and musical theatre songs. An excellent classical pianist played a couple of afternoon concerts and there were additional musicians playing in the various bars during the evening. We also enjoyed the speakers, one a retired senior civil servant with experience of Number 10, and a retired female police officer who talked about her rise through the ranks and her experiences as a woman in the Police Force. She was great fun and really entertained her audience. All talks by these two speakers were almost full. The itinerary was more interesting than I had initially expected: Vigo, Lisbon, Oporto - and Guernsey.

A wonderful, stylish ship with excellent crew.

Lovely cabin, extremely clean and comfortable.
