Cunard Line's newest 92,000-ton liner, Queen Elizabeth entered service in the autumn of 2010.
- Ship in Detail
- Deck Plans
Queen Elizabeth is the newest of Cunard’s trio and is almost identical to Queen Victoria. Launched by Her Majesty, The Queen in 2010, this 2,068-passenger ship revels in its cask-aged nostalgia. Several features pay homage to QE2, in the Yacht Club there’s a unique silver model of the former flagship, while a bronze sculpture of Queen Elizabeth II now takes pride of place in the Queens Room aboard Queen Elizabeth. References to yesteryear underline what differentiates Cunard ships and the Art Deco aesthetic of Queen Elizabeth appeals to passengers who appreciate traditional values in cruising.
Guests enter at the Grand Lobby from which other principal public rooms emanate. Possibly the most iconic space on board is the Queens Room. Inspired by the Royal Gardens at Hampton Court Palace, this two-deck high room is dominated by magnificent crystal chandeliers and comes into its own during Captain’s receptions, afternoon tea, and grand black-tie evenings when the resident band play melodies of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington.
Other public rooms include the Commodore Club which has unimpeded views over the ship’s bow; Café Carinthia, with the sophistication of a French patisserie; 6,000-book, double-height Library; the quixotic Garden Lounge which boasts a sloping glass roof reminiscent of Kew Gardens; as well as the Golden Lion Pub. The 830-seat Royal Court Theatre with tiered seating and 16 private boxes is where big production-style shows are staged.
The 878-seat Britannia Restaurant has intimate groupings of tables that belie the room’s size; there’s also the intimate, single-seating Britannia Club Restaurant. Grill rooms on Deck 11 are for passengers occupying Princess Grill and Queens Grill suites. The à la carte Verandah Restaurant is one of the finest at sea. In the less formal Lido Café passengers can enjoy South American, Mexican and Pan-Asian cuisine at night.
True to her Cunard lineage, Queen Elizabeth offers a range of accommodation from the ample to the opulent, with no fewer than 32 categories of staterooms that correlate with each restaurant passengers are assigned to such as the Britannia, Princess and Queens Grills.
The Pavilion Pool is amidships and the Lido Pool at the stern is surrounded by a huge sunbathing area and is perfect for sailaway parties. The Royal Spa includes the Royal Bath House with Thermal Suite and thalassotherapy pool. We are pleased to note that the lifestyle conjured up on board Queen Elizabeth appeals to a discerning, younger crowd seeking a retrospective into the realm of Downton Abbey.
