QE Arts and Literary Cruise of British Isles

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.

Sedate, a lot of Beige, sometimes disorganized

The Queen Elizabeth design was beige and wood. It reminded me of a traditional British Club. I was disappointed with the lack of glamor.

The entertainment was wonderful and presented in a vibrant setting. The lectures were interesting. There were plenty of public rooms to spread out in. We enjoyed the wonderful service of Puma, our room steward, Louisa in the salon, Robert and Avish in the dining room and the knowledge of wine steward Cletin. The sailing into New York was fantastic! 

The only down note was the immigration process in New York, where some passengers sat all afternoon in the immigration hall until all passengers got off the ship. My husband and I opted to stay in our room and then a public room until final call. We only sat in the hall about one and 1/2 hours.

Sailing on a Premier Cruise line

Everything was perfect from the correct manner of the Restaurant waiters and stateroom  attendant to the overall cleanliness of the ship. I have to follow a strict Gluten free diet and the only gripe against Cunard was that on day 6 of a 12 day cruise all the bars on the ship had run out of Gluten free beer (St Peters) I visited the Pursers desk and complained and to Cunard`s credit they restocked the bars with a Spanish Gluten free beer on day 9.

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
