Falling standards
By MARGARET SAVAGE on 07 January 2019
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

I have cruised many times with Cunard and have Diamond status. The Xmas cruise was a disappointment food wise. The portions have been reduced in size the combinations of food was at time odd and after requesting HOT, HOT, food in the restaurant on the 6pm servings I had to constantly send it back as the plates were cold. Vegetables were only served on request. The waiters were wonderful and embarrassed at the complaints at...

Very disappointing
By Mrs Pauline Boulton on 07 January 2019
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

We booked our 2018 Christmas cruise on Queen Elizabeth after having a fabulous 2017 Christmas cruise on Queen Victoria. It’s so different considering both ships are Cunard. We had a lot of onboard spending money as we had put £100 down payment before leaving Queen Victoria a year ago, I absolutely loved the shops on Queen Victoria and was looking forward to spending all this money in the shops this Christmas on Queen Elizabeth. Well...

Poor food/mediocre service
By a jones on 02 January 2019
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

Booked a club balcony dined in Club Restaurant the food was cold more often than not as was the water in a teapot for breakfast the excuse given was that the Club Restaurant was some distance from Galley. The quality of food was very poor indeed the same veg every night. The choice was very bland typical of a 2/3 star hotel the cruise was the first week of December and we were given a...

Not as good as previous Cunard cruises
By Mrs P A Stirk on 02 January 2019
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

There was a flood on deck 8 starboard and we heard from one person that he had been without water. We didn’t have a flood but the balcony and furniture was covered in an oily substance and the roof was very discoloured. It splashed on the glass door/ window so we thought it was raining. Two officers who came to look left footprints in it and said the steward would clean it up which he...

Cunard going down hill
By Haydn Martin M B E on 21 December 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

Is Cunard going down hill? This is the third time we have been on the queen Elizabeth I do not think we will be going again. First I must say that all the staff we came across were very polite and very good at there jobs, however, the standard of food was very poor, sometimes cold, some very small portions and not presented very well at times. During the refit I think they must have removed...

Canaries cruise
By Anne on 21 December 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

Left Southampton in the rain on the 2nd December but two days later beautiful weather from then on even the last stop Lisbon. The refit is well designed and the thoughts behind it executed with detail. I only have one small comment in that they have changed the staff and the shops under another franchise. This has changed the character of the ship and to me, it didn’t marry up with the rest of the...

Special Birthdays on Queen Elizabeth
By Marie Perry on 10 December 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

We were a party of 8, on board especially as the mini cruise coincided with my husband’s and best friends 70th Birthday (30 November and1 December). 2 in our party had never cruised before and 1 had never cruised from Southampton so we were keen to show the how fantastic it can be. Embarkation was very efficient and we were all soon sitting outside on deck with drinks in hand. Drinks are pricey and the...

Noisy
By Michelle Knight on 10 December 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

The walls constantly and loud rattles all night so no sleep for me. The engine noise was in my ears rumbling all night. Poor English means you get overpriced wine without noticing, so be careful and be prepared to argue the bill. Clean and plush in all other areas. Ruel, our room service, was very attentive and good natured.

Disappointing
By Betty Hunt on 22 November 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

As the ship was undergoing a refurbishment at the end of the cruise we felt we were short changed as they seemed to wind down early e.g. running short of spa items our favourite wine shopping was dismal and entertainment not up to scratch.

Unfortunately underwhelming
By Richard on 22 November 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

I would like to get the positives out of the way first. The crew were all first class, the cabin was comfortable and the locations were decent enough. Ship design was incredible and the guest speakers were superb. I very much enjoyed everything I saw. Now for the negatives. Firstly, we were not informed that the ship was due for a re-fit as soon as we returned to Southampton. As we were disembarking in Southampton,...

Drinks
By ROLAND DOTCHIN on 29 October 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

Queen Elizabeth 1st October 2018 15 nights canaries, great cruise, food, service, ports. Had on board spends luckily, as drinks prices plus 15% gratuities each time you buy drinks were frightening. Think I am right in saying that, goods on ships at sea are duty-free, so Cunard has the wrong policy in overcharging, the range of goods in retail shops was unattractive and overpriced. All the cruise companies should consider abandoning the outdated gratuities system,...

Absolutely horrendous noise in this cabin . Every time the ship docked the noise was unbelievable, from 4.30 am until the ship docked . Never again if this is how Cunard treat platinum members

Disappointing cuisine.
By K and R Marks on 23 October 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

Last with Cunard 2011. Huge decrease in the standard of cooking and presentation. Cold hot food, warm ice cream and cheesecake, often overcooked meats and raw (not al dente) veg. Oh dear. What went wrong in the galley?

Short break to Guernsey
By Richard Whiting on 09 October 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

Enjoyed the cruise, arrived in Guernsey on the Sunday after a cruise around the channel, many of the shops were closed, why didn’t we arrive on Saturday? Had to get tech staff to cure the irritating noise coming from the a/c unit, which kept me awake! The insulating material had appeared to have been removed but not replaced! I was surprised at the very high cost of the wines $48-€55 We have always discussed the...

Great Cruise shame about the noise
By Nigel Smith on 05 October 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

The cruise was very good we had some great destinations and the weather was glorious all cruise. Inside Queen Elizabeth is a wonderful ship, only the odd rust spots and unfinished paint jobs made some areas look a bit shabby, and they were always doing work around deck 10 which meant we could not walk around the ship. The staff were brilliant and could not do enough for you, as normal with Cunard the drink...

Top quality cruise
By john reed on 01 October 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

Queen Elizabeth is a beautiful well kept ship. Service was excellent. The food served was quality rather than quantity. Anybody who wanted to eat excess could go to the Lido restaurant where there was a good self-serve selection. We opted to have breakfasts and dinner in the main dining room, service and quality were always excellent. Entertainment was very good, but the guest speakers were fantastic. Angela Dillon gave a talk about her life-to-date. Very...

Voyage No.Q825
By Mr & Mrs Chambers on 21 September 2018
Cunard Line | Queen Elizabeth Reviews

Having sailed with Queen Elizabeth three times, and QV, and QM2 and many with P&O, we are now put off greatly with cruising, our 17 days on your ship was the worst cruise we have ever done. Food was absolutely dreadful counted only three meals enjoyable. Buffet food was the same food each day, entertainment dreadful, many people complaining, we would never go on this ship again. One thing you should correct is your front cover...
