Queen Elizabeth was beautiful, the staff was fantastic.
Trip was more than I expected as I have been on numerous ocean and river cruises. Everything just clicked from the day I contacted Affordable Tours
The one thing Cunard could improve is their web experience. Information is scattered all over the place so it's very time-consuming to put all the pieces together. But I love their ships and service.
Everything was very nice; however the price was not cheap; not a complaint, just an observation...
My tour operator answers my questions promptly.
The itinerary was exactly as described. I booked the pre-cruise extension which included a safari, wine country tour and city tour and they were all excellent. The meals that were included were top notch. The hotel accommodations were excellent and very close to the Waterfront area, which was great. Definitely worth the money. The cruise was a typical Cunard cruise, which means that the atmosphere and attire are much more formal than Americans are used to. The cruise was as billed and went smoothly.
Cunard knows its business, and its customers
About the Cruise with Queen Elizabeth: Everything exceeded our expectations (service,food,attentiveness). We were very impressed. Every time we needed something, staff was there immediately to meet our needs, our request. Room was larger than any other ship we have cruised with. The beds were solid and very comfortable. This is a complaint that we have had with all other cruises, beds sagging and being uncomfortable to sleep in. Not in this ship.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip from LA to Auckland aboard the Queen Elizabeth--it was one of the best trips we have ever taken. The people/crew were wonderful, the food was fabulous, and the itinerary was great--especially the many consecutive days at sea!! In short we were very happy and would do it again in a heartbeat. We have become Cunard fans--the new ships with "old" ship (read English pub) feel--lots of wood and great art work throughout the ship was marvlous. Our balcony cabin was perfect--fabulous sun sets and a wonderful time at sea. Yes--it was all good!!!
Great itinerary. I would recommend it to friends. The Queen Elizabeth is a beautiful ship, good activities, food etc.
