Review Queen Elizabeth

Fantastic Double Holiday

Queen Elizabeth

By: Bottomley, Newton Abbot on 25th Jul 2020

The ports of call were all excellent. This was a consideration in booking this voyage. It was great to have 2 nights in Cape Town and be able to stay ashore without fretting about all aboard time...

Review Queen Mary 2

A better way back from New York than flying?

Queen Mary 2

By: Crammond, Nottingham on 19th Jun 2020

All in all, I thought the QM2 was a very competent ship and a delight to travel on. Given that it was a themed cruise there was more entertainment

What's the Dress code on Cunard ships?

As a classic, traditional cruise line, the dress code at Cunard balances casual resort style with evening smart attire. During Gala evenings, you should plan to dress to impress with a more elegant look. This means a tuxedo, dark suit or dinner jacket and tie for men and an evening or cocktail dress, formal separates or trouser suit for women. Smart attire is requested in the evenings, ranging from smart trousers, shirt and tie for men and trousers and dresses for women. If you want to keep your look more relaxed, you can dress casually in many of the alternative dining venues and lounges including the Golden Lion pub and Lido buffet.


Do the Queens and Princess Suites have balconies?

Yes, both suite have a private balcony. The Queens Grill Suites balconies are a bit larger larger than the Princess Grill Suites, due the larger suite size.

Dining Options

Enjoy dinner with a view onboard a Cunard Line ship, with a bevy of options to keep your taste buds from ever getting bored! Whether you’re craving a traditional English afternoon tea or breakfast in bed, you’ll be well served by the range of venues. Guests can choose from light bites or sit-down meals. You’ll have a dedicated restaurant to dine at, depending on your stateroom grade. Daily menus include plenty of choices to suit all dietary requirements, with vegan, vegetarian, fish, and spa-inspired menus presented each evening.

  • Britannia – Dining is included in your fare at this main restaurant. It serves traditional menus, including hot and continental breakfasts, three-course lunches, and lavish dinners.
  • Lido Restaurant/Kings Court – This relaxed buffet restaurant allows you to pick and choose from tastefully arranged platters of cuisine to suit your mood. In the evening, the buffet transforms into a global dining experience from the authentic Indian fare at Coriander to the tempting Asian cuisine of Lotus. La Piazza serves Italian dishes, while Smokehouse is an American-styled venue.
  • Carinthia Lounge – Sip on a smoothie or meet new onboard friends for a glass of wine and light bite in this stylish lounge and café.
  • Golden Lion – A traditional pub, the Golden Lion serves English favourites like cottage pie and fish and chips.
  • The Veranda – This elegant restaurant is open for lunch and dinner each day, serving French cuisine.


Drinks Packages

A drinks package is the perfect stress-free companion to fine dining, and Cunard’s choices are straightforward.

  • Soft Drinks Package – Includes soda water, Pepsi, Diet Pepsi and lemonade as well as a selection of fruit juices. Brands and flavours of soda drinks will vary depending on the ship.
  • Wine Package – There’s nothing like a complex glass of wine to bring a meal’s flavours into balance, so top up your food and drink experience with a wine package. These include wine in the restaurant and cabin. Are you interested in trying out new bottles? Boost your wine knowledge with tasting packages curated by expert Chief Sommeliers.

Can’t fathom sailing without your daily cup of joe? Another option is to pre-purchase a coffee card, currently at a cost of $40 for 10 regular coffees on the ship. A separate hot drinks package is available on the Queen Elizabeth, including regular coffee and signature teas.



Whether you prefer low-key karaoke nights in the pub or opulent evenings in the ballroom, Cunard’s entertainment covers all bases. Gather in the Queens Room to tango the night away to the sound of a full orchestra, or join fellow passengers in the ships’ vibrant nightclubs. Jazz trios, classic recitals and solo singers lend an upbeat ambience to your evening. Or if you love discovering new art, visit the Clarendon Fine Art Gallery to view intriguing collectable works and discuss technique over a glass of bubbly.


  • Shows and Screenings

Visit the theatre to catch the latest Hollywood blockbusters, cinema classics and even 3D films. If you prefer live shows, check out the West End-quality dance performances and musicals in the classy setting of the onboard Royal Court Theatre. Cunard also hosts comedy shows for light-hearted laughs, and themed balls for enchanting evenings.


  • Casino

Do you feel lucky? Visit the ship’s casino to test your hand at table games and slot machines. You can enter a Blackjack or Roulette tournament, or even just soak in the glittering atmosphere.


Amenities and Activities

Days spent on a Cunard Line cruise can be as action-packed or tranquil as you please, starting with luxury hotel-quality amenities in the spacious cabins and suites. If you want a full calendar of activities, you’ll find tango lessons, shuffleboard, fencing and arts and crafts on the docket. Balance this out with a day spent sunbathing and reading by the pool, or soothe tired muscles in the hot tub.


  • Spa and Wellness

You’ll find spas on each of the Cunard ships, whether it’s the Royal Spa, Canyon Ranch SpaClub or the Mareel Spa. You’re sure to feel inspired by the panoramic ocean views from the fitness centres, keeping you focused as you work up a sweat. This is complemented by relaxation areas, cascading waterfall showers, aqua therapy, pampering massages, beauty treatments and facials. At Canyon Ranch, you’ll be able to enjoy the anti-ageing properties of Ayurvedic and Thai treatments.


  • Sports and Fitness

Apart from the gym and selection of swimming pools, get involved with foil fencing classes or a round of table tennis. Typical open-air games like shuffleboard, croquet and quoits are on offer to help pass the time, along with golf simulators aboard the Queen Mary 2.


Service Charges

To take all the guesswork out of tipping, Cunard automatically adds a daily hotel and dining service charge to your onboard account, with all money going directly to the crew. You can tip on top of this if you like, but it’s not required. The exact fee will depend on your stateroom category, and a standard 15% charge goes to bar, wine and salon services.
