Only once in a lifetime experience

Sail Date: December 01, 2006

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Ship is old and run down at the heels. Desperate need of a major renovation in all public rooms and in the staterooms. The fitness center was a huge disappointment--very poorly placed (over the boilers and engines) and extremely basic, sparse equipment. Ship difficult to maneuver and none in our party are disabled. Staterooms were basic accommodations.

Pros: Nothing to commend

Cons: Overall bad experience

Recommends Queen Elizabeth 2 (RETIRED)? No.

Food and Dining
very nice wait staff but food was average at best and limited in choice. Desserts--not so good. Room service was slow and sometimes non-existent.
Cabin / Stateroom
Functional with no amenities. Decor very plain, family room was small for four people, decent closet space but difficult to access.
Old movies, outdated acts. Casino needs new gaming options. Good bridge instructor.
Service and Staff
Average is the average--dining room wait staff were excellent--other staff were cordial but quite disinterested.
Ship Quality
Layout is horrible and confusing. Run down at the heels, carpets need to be replaced, stained, cleanliness?? As noted, we are not disabled and access was difficult for us.
