Additional details

Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Balcony

Friends have travelled on Cunard ships and recommended them, also sailing from Southampton fitted in with our life.

Have cruised before on two P&O ships so know the routine. Firstly check in was so easy, eating lunch just after 1pm, everything was so smooth. Cabin was on deck 4 aft, lovely and spacious and quiet (even though many people told us midships is the best) have found no difference in location!

Queen Elizabeth is very Art Deco and certainly a step up in fixtures, fittings & cleanliness from P&O (but again P&O served us well on a half world cruise and I not knocking them) but obviously you pay more on Cunard and probably expect more. Certainly the food served in the dining room or found in the buffet was outstanding & they totally catered for my wife being gluten/dairy free, not a single meal was disappointing.
