Take a trip on the last great ocean liner
Reviewed on: 02 Oct 2013
If you like being at sea ,the QM2 is worthy of at least one voyage. It is a remarkable ship that everyone should experience once. That being said, unless you are traveling in Grill Class, it is a mass market product comparable to other cruises except for the ship itself. A crossing on the QM2 should be on your bucket list.

It was a great cruise because of the service, cleanliness, and quality of food. We would be happy to sail on Cunard again.

This was a "bucket list" cruise for us. We embarked with high expectations and were not disappointed. Cunard knows how to provide the ambience that leads to an enjoyable cruise. The cruise itinerary was excellent, as were the shore excursions. The Queen Elizabeth crew was cordial and competent. The service in the Princess Grill lived up to Cunard's "White Glove" standards, and the food was truly "Five-Star" in quality.

We were very pleased with our trip. The staff worked very hard to make our voyage a pleasant & memorable experience. I would highly recommend Cunard to my friends, as I have taken several voyages with them.

The entertainment is very good, but the food is bad.
Cunard is changing

As a long and loyal customer, I have noticed that the Company, since it was absorbed by Princess, has become more and more like a legacy US airline, rather than the classic British steam ship line it once was. Their pricing gimmicks have become impossible to navigate, their performance with many things, even simple things seem like they just got in the business instead of 175 years at sea. We are looking for alternatives.

Cunard slogan should be "for a nominal fee". We are previous travelers with Oceania and were expecting a superior experience with Cunard. Not so. Cabins, bathrooms, food, service and entertainment are adequate but not up to the standard of Oceania. Extremely disappointing.

We loved the restaurants, the exclusivity of the Grill Suite, the service, the ship décor, the theater. All around it was fabulous. Because of the Grill Suite levels, it felt like a cruise on a very small ship.

Having sailed on the Queen Mary and the Queen Victoria, we were anxious to sail on the Queen Elizabeth. While I knew it was the sister ship to the Queen Victoria, I didn't realize how much I preferred a larger ship. That is my preference. We were in the Queens Grill and have taken maybe 30 cruises many of which were on similar levels to the Queens Grill or in the Princess Grill on Cunard. I have to say for the price, I would not pay for the Queens Grill again. Maybe the Princess Grill. The other cruise lines provide significantly more benefits for their passengers that are in those cabins or at that level - with a butler, able to dine in a private dining area at the time of their choice, etc. Cunard had the least benefits of any cruise line we have sailed on. They also tend to "nickel and dime" you about everything. Most other cruise lines (other than those owned by Carnival) provide better benefits

everything was very excellent with the cruise - the Cunard people were fantastic. my only complaint is if we are paying $30,000 for a two week cruise we shouldn't be nickle and dimed with wi fi charges. Queens grill passengers should have unlimited wi fi access without petty charges!

QE was wonderful, although the White Star Luggage Service upon disembarking continues to be a disaster. No one in the baggage area seems to know what to do with the White Star luggage to be shipped home. I was promised all involved persons would be trained but NO. Same as 2 years ago. Why do we pay all that money for incompetent people at the Purser's office?

Food was weak. Too formal

Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth is a lovely ship. She is reminiscent of the grand ships of yesteryear. She is formal and grand and passage on her is as well. Food is diverse beautifully presented and delicious. This particular itinerary including Norway and Iceland was very appealing to us and the Queen Elizathe delivered.

The Queen Mary 2 is our favorite, but the QE was excellent as well. The staff were all outstanding. Glenn serviced our room and made the bed to suit me. Mariano and Rolando made a great team of dining room servers. Rawlings was outstanding at finding out what we like in a wine and was able to offer suggestions, which were 100% excellent! He is a well informed, nice, polite, and kind person. The Purser's Office was excellent. We had problems with my husband's phone not charging. They were very helpful getting us in touch with our children for arrival at the airport. What a great group of people on this ship!!!

While not our first trip with Cunard, we were reminded of the negatives of cruising with Cunard. Namely having set sittings for dinner, ie same time, same table and same people for the duration of the trip. As a result more than half the dinners were eaten away from the dining room Having cruised with Oceania, we prefer the freedom they offer. However, the ship itself is quite beautiful!
