Tired Ship, Bad Buffet, Subpar Service

Review for Queen Elizabeth to Europe - Western Mediterranean

This was our 38th cruise and our second on Cunard (we were on Queen Victoria before). Pros The ports of call on this 14day western Mediterranean voyage were very nice, and we managed to enjoy them all, even though we have been to most of them many times already; Some of the venues, lobby and a few niches look good and subdued, classic but not too stuffy; The main dining room ...

We choose this cruise as a treat for my 50th birthday and choose to book for 14 nights,we booked a spacious deluxe inside room on a saver fare,two weeks before we sailed we were told that we had been ‘upgraded’ to an outside smaller footage room,when we looked at the room online not only was it smaller but had a tender boat completely blocking the window,after almost an hour on the phone we were ...

Disappointing

Review for Queen Elizabeth to Alaska

The Alaska itinerary was as we expected and included 2 days viewing glaciers at close range. We have sailed the QE before, and the food was disappointing this time. We like lamb, but it was on the dinner menu 4 times on one week, plus some lunches. The same was true of orange roughy. There was a sirloin steak once, but no other steaks in the main dining room. No filet mignon, and no New York ...

Pros: *Cunard’s unable to improve its service. It is ‘top notch’ with exemplary care provided by the crew. *Ship is well appointed with class throughout. *Good instrumental entertainment. *MDR cuisine is mostly innovative and exceptional. *Cunard ‘knows how’ to make coffee unlike the insipid liquid served on many other lines. *Embarkation well organized. *Although the staff ...

Covid prevalent onboard

Review for Queen Elizabeth to Panama Canal & Central America

The cruise was going fine and we were celebrating my husbands 70th birthday. It all turned very sour when we both contracted Covid. I tested positive first and my husband 3 days later. It then became a very distressing experience. I was escorted to my isolation cabin, passing several other guests along the way. I was initially placed in an Ocean View cabin but eventually moved to a cabin with a ...

Terrible ending for Cunard cruise

Review for Queen Elizabeth to Panama Canal & Central America

In May we boarded the Queen Elizabeth for a cruise from Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco. Only after we embarked did we discover that there were active cases of Covid on board. Mask wearing was poor, social distancing weak and, worst of all there was no control of passenger and crew freely exploring each port of call. In sharp contrast to a cruise, on the same ship, which we took in October 2021 ...

We chose this cruise because although we had sailed QM2 several times Transatlantic, we had never been on the QE. The dates fit our schedule—sail the QM2 over to Southampton, a week in England and sail the QE back Southampton to Fort Lauderdale. Our leg was the beginning of the QE’s longer leg, she will be sailing over a month, all the way to Alaska. My observations: Embarkation in Southampton ...

A Cautionary Tale

Recently my wife and I took a 28-day cruise from Southampton to San Francisco. Covid-19 dogged the entire 9,615 nautical miles of the voyage. Our troubles began even before we boarded Queen Elizabeth. Cunard demanded a certified negative antigen test dated no more than 24 hours before boarding. That meant finding a provider open on a Sunday – which we did eventually at a cost of £70. Not once ...

Great to be back on board the QE even if for only 4 days. Our first cruise for 30 months since the pandemic. Fast efficient check in. Pleased with covid precautions still in place. Ship very clean and the food and services all to a very good standard considering the circumstances. Special mention to Antonio for looking after us so well (again) in the Britannia Restaurant. Entertainment most ...

We loved our first cruise back on Queen Elizabeth and thought the pandemic measures put in place were appropriate. Being tested before we could board the ship was scary but handled very efficiently. Service was great throughout the ship. Cabin steward was really efficient - so much so that we rarely saw him! Food in the Britannia restaurant exceeded our expectations. Food at Lido buffet was ...
