Autumn 2010 will mark the beginning of a new age of cruising for Cunard Cruise lines with the all new Queen Elizabeth. She was inspired by Cunard's original Queen Elizabeth, which set sail in 1940, and is a worthy heiress to the title. From fine artworks, rich woods, and Art Deco touches to distinctive venues like the Garden Lounge, the three-tiered Royal Court Theatre and Yacht Club - this is a modern yet elegant vessel. Along with gourmet cuisine and white glove service the Queen Elizabeth offers a perfect blend of British heritage and modern comforts.

Of the twelve cruises we have taken this one ranks at the bottom. Not everything was terrible, but the exceptions were few. The good: Probably the easiest boarding we have had. There was no confusion, no running around looking for something. The boarding process probably lasted fifteen minutes. The ships overall appearance and décor was exceptional. The look of wood with all the trimmings made you feel comfortable and very warm. For a ship just refurbished two years ago there is a lot of wear and tear. The bad: The staff appears more disinterested than any other ship we have sailed. On most of the ships we have cruised there seems to be an attitude of making you feel like a guest, far less on this ship. The lido staff is downright unfriendly. On many occasions a staff member removed either a plate of glass from the table, we would say thank you, just to be ignored. Problem solving seems to be absent. Our transfer from the ship to the airport was arranged by the excursions department. Heathrow airport is one of the largest in the world. I stopped by the desk to verify the correct terminal. I was told I would have to go the library upstairs log onto a computer, at my cost, to verify the correct terminal. Only after leaving I decided this was not right and returned to the counter just in time to find another associate giving her instructions on how to find this information. Two questions, one why was someone new not given instructions on how to handle questions, and second why not try to get the guest to return. The ugly: Our booking agent had us select the 8:30 dining saying “they have open seating like other ships, just request other dining times”. When we asked the Maître D about open seating we were informed not on any Cunard. Not solving the problem then he haughtily told us to return on the following day and he “would see what he could do”. Makes you really feel like a guest. Tendering. On two occasions we tendered into port. First being Edinburgh. Along with the ships tenders we also had a large ship used for this purpose aiding in the process. Even with the larger ship there was still a delay over an hour and a half. The second was in Guernsey. This was a horrible experience, with over a three and a half delay. Some people waited over four hours. Very poor planning.

We enjoyed this cruise. The ports of La Rochelle and Gijon were very industrial and far from the city. Ship was very clean and service was excellent.

Cunard does it right. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect holiday. Nothing was impossible. Nothing was too much trouble. Nothing was denied. We were never told no. It was our first cruise on one of the queens but it won't be the last.

The balcony of my room was a delight to watch the ocean and sun bathe. although it took some time to adjust to a  was llate dining option [8:30]  i luckily was assigned to a dining table of mostly single voyagers who were delightful.

If you are doing a Panama Canal Full Transit, book a cabin as far forward as you can on deck 6. The doors, normally closed to guests, are opened for the entire transit. You have a panoramic view of the Canal just steps away from your cabin. Also, this area is far less crowded than the main deck.

Request a stateroom midship near the "B" staircase which minimizes the walking
