I had never been on a curnard cruise before and have been put off by rumours that they are quite formal cruises. However I booked the cruise just a couple of days out before embarktation at a ridiculous price. So let's on the cruise
Overall I can discount a.lot of the critiscim i read on the formality of curnard although on gala nights there is a need to dress up.
From boarding the ship and ...
Booked this on board QM2 when the QE's Asian itineraries were all scrapped. Crazy cheap price made this unmissable.
Compared to the QM2 this is the inferior ship in almost every single area.
The vaunted decoration of the ship looked a bit tacky, a bit Vegas casino, the public rooms felt cramped and crowded. You can't walk to the front of the ship, the gym seems tired.
What most surprised ...
We chose this cruise at the last minute due to changes with our original plans and port restrictions in Singapore and Hong Kong. We decided to stick close to Australia/New Zealand.
The Queen Elizabeth is a beautiful and classy ship with amazing ambiance and so many beautiful pieces of furniture and decore.
We loved the main dining room and were struck by how very good the menu was on ...
I wanted to try Cunard for the experience so paid 3.5 times the usual daily rate of other ships. Unfortunately it was the worst dining experience of any ship I have sailed on (10+) and I complained to the Executive Chef in person. Meat and Foul were of very poor quality so if you wanted anything not to be tough you had to order rare. I had tough steak and lamb n poor quality shrimp. One lady at my ...
Although we have cruised before, this was our first cruise with Cunard. The Queen Elizabeth is a very comfortable ship. There are plenty of seats around the ship, and it is never hard to find a comfortable spot to relax, read a book, watch the scenery, play a card or board game or just chat to new friends. There are lots of activities on board, shops to visit, a very busy British pub, an ...
* Very organised to come on board the cruise
* Cleaners kept the ship super clean, especially the toilets.
* Cabin staff are so polite and very hard working at maintaining a high standard of cabins
* Dessert buffet for New Years Eve was Beyond Amazing with all the ice sculptures.
* Santa coming on the cruise ship and every child received a great present which we weren’t ...
I chose this cruise because it was taking the route which I did with my family (husband and three daughters ) forty five years ago when we emigrated to Australia. A sentimental journey .I flew from Perth Australia, stayed two nights in London and then was driven to Southampton where I boarded the Queen Elizabeth. As a solo traveller this was done independently and paid for separately.
Just completed the Melb-NZ cruise 18-30 March 19. Seemed like a good way to see a little of NZ in comfort.
Massive delays and chaos at boarding in Melbourne.
Burst water main leaving cabins without water until 9:30 AM one day. Casino flooded and smelling.
Long queues for shuttle bus into Dunedin with USD 8 charge each way.
Long queue for tender from ship to Akaroa even at 11:00AM. ...
It was our first time on Queen Elizabeth and we had a wonderful time. It was a cruise from Sydney to Tasmania, we disembarked at Sydney. It is amazing ship and crew were friendly & helpful. The service all over the ship was fantastic.
The day core of the Queen Elizabeth was lovely and had plenty of nice areas to look out at the sea & read a book. You could do looks or just relax.
Ok after the last 2 disappointing cruises with princess we thought we'd give cunard a go.Def aimed at.a diff market. .only one child on board for first half of cruise (poor bugger was lonely in kids club)
The average age was older and this changed down to around 55 after melb.
Embarkation and disembarking was brilliant.so much more efficient.Food was.great 8 out of 10 the ship was ...
