"Whilst embarkation was smooth, no one bothered checking the Covid test results which had been required to embark, the same three questions were asked that had been asked on-line to which you could respond any way you pleased, a photograph was taken despite one having already been uploaded through the website.A lot of the crew seemed harried and untrained especially on the Purser's Desk, in Lido and the dining room at lunch...."Read More
1-10 of 25 Cunard Queen Elizabeth Cruise Reviews for Luxury to Australia & New Zealand from Sydney (Australia)
Boarding was seamless and the ship was in excellent condition for wear and tear and cleanliness
Our cabin was immaculate, however we experienced poor sleep due to hard beds and pillows and the shower was the smallest I have ever experienced on a cruise ship. The games deck was the best I have seen for senior passengers but not so for young passengers.
The taste of the water was ...
We have never been on Cunard and it had a lot of hype as to the quality so decided to try them on a five night culinary cruise from Sydney.We have dome many cruises so perhaps our expectations were too high.
The boarding process was good and seamless.We were in Our Voyage number :Q305
FROM Jan 28th untill Feb 2nd
Veranda Room.The room was disappointing the shower floor was delaminating ...
To say that we were disappointed with this cruise is an understatement.
We are loyal Cunard cruisers, having completed 14 other cruises on Cunard ships, including QE2, Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth. We are huge fans of the brand and would always rave about everything in relation to the ship, ship facilities, crew, service. They were the epitome of luxury.
First the good. ...
Have just returned from circumnavigation of Australia on Queen Elizabeth. I chose Cunard as I have always found them to provide impeccable 5-star service, am Diamond level and have previously enjoyed all aspects of cruising with Cunard.
When I started cruising with Cunard in 2003, the ships and the whole experience were all 5-star but now QE would barely rank a 3-star rating in nearly all ...
As a Diamond member we love the formality of the Cunard line and the Ballroom so we booked the around Australia cruise in November and also the Around New Zealand cruise in January 2023
Had i know the serves level had fallen so low I would not have booked these cruises the menu has been cut back drastically and the untrained staff leaves a lot to desire.
I understand that after Covid they ...
In writing this review I am comparing with the other cruise lines I have been with. These include P&O, Princess and Marella formerly known as TUI (Thompson). I have to say I have never been on a bad cruise (14 so far) and I always wonder why people leave such low scores. Yes, I too have had issues on a ship but they have always resolved them with no stress. However, I have witnessed Mr and Mrs ...
We chose this cruise as have never been on Cunard before. As it tied in with our time frame, was a good deal and no Princess cruises available, we wanted to experience it.
We are Elite Princess travellers with 23 cruises already taken, so had a lot to compare.
Embarkation without priority was very quick and smooth.. surprising with virus scares.(filled in form, had temperature taken, ...
First time on Cunard, we were supposed to do back to back cruises from Sydney but the New Zealand cruise was cancelled due to the virus.
The six day cruise itself was lovely, free from any dramas and we formed some lovely connections with the staff. Our room was the cleanest of any cruises we have ever been on, well done Cunard. Loved walking into a room where I don’t immediately think I had ...
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 ...
