YOUR HOLIDAY AT SEA
The latest ship to join the Cunard fleet, Queen Elizabeth has everything from the golden age of cruising whilst meeting the needs of a state of the art modern cruise liner.

When cruising on the Queen Elizabeth, you will experience Cunard’s famous White Star Service at every moment.
Nine different suites and six restaurants cater to all styles and serve all tastes, from fine dining to regional fare. A garden lounge based on the world famous Kew Gardens adds a touch of class to your morning coffee, while the largest ballroom at sea, the Queen’s Room, is where you can dress in your best and dance the night away.
The Queen Elizabeth is a vessel like no other. While it has all the facilities you’d expect from a cruise, including shops, swimming pools, bars, a library, Kids’ Clubs and an English pub, you’ll find touches throughout that are unmistakably unique. You’ll even see the original bell from the original Queen Elizabeth, proudly displayed. When Her Majesty the Queen conducted the naming ceremony in her own honour in October 2010, she continued a marvelously regal formal cruising tradition. Stunning accommodation and the most exceptional fine dining you’ll ever experience at sea are highlights of the glorious Queen Elizabeth cruise ship. Watch extravagant stage shows in opulent theater surroundings or simply relax and revitalize beside one of the two lovely pool areas. The Queen Elizabeth is cruising at it’s best.
