The Queen Elizabeth

The latest luxury cruise liner from Cunard was named by Her Majesty the Queen in 2010. The ship has deservingly won awards and accolades for her elegance and on board features. The accommodation throughout is luxurious, elegant and even the Britannia Inside State Room would be called a deluxe guest room on any other ship. There are four main restaurants with culinary delights and exquisite menus for each. As an alternative, there is the spacious and more relaxed Veranda Restaurant.

The ship offers a variety of relaxing spas and fitness options, as well as swimming pools, galleries, sports facilities and even enrichment and speaker programmes.

These two cruise liners are the epitome of luxury, elegance and style. From the moment you set foot on board, you start to realise why the ships are world-renowned and have been awarded the accolades they truly deserve.
