May 2016 - 2 Night Getaway (Southampton To Hamburg) Cruise on Queen Elizabeth
Great itinerary but....
The ports visited were the deciding factor to book this cruise. We enjoyed the ports but the down side was the ship embarked and debarked approximately 750 passengers both in Hamburg and Kiel. This caused problems with Immigration when returning to Southampton and it also disrupted the flow of the cruise. Not so bad at Hamburg but in Kiel you had new passengers acquainting themselves with their surroundings while the other passengers had settled into a relaxing routine.
The ship is beautiful, food and service were great, entertainment disappointing.
