Cruises on board the Queen Elizabeth
The newest of the Cunard ships, the Queen Elizabeth successfully combines beloved ocean liner traditions with modern cruise innovations. With elegant chandeliers, Art Deco interiors, and light classical music in the public spaces, she creates an atmosphere of traditional luxury hearkening back to the Golden Age of maritime travel. Memorabilia from her predecessor ships decorates the lounges and halls, and a strict dedication to traditions like ballroom dancing and afternoon tea add to the authentic historical experience. The ship embraces nostalgia for days gone by.
But look closely and you'll notice the modern touches that create a cruise experience that matches today's standards of comfort and convenience. The staterooms are significantly larger than those of traditional ocean liners, and nearly three-quarters of them have balconies. Dining rooms are still assigned based on accommodation class, but the main dining room, the Britannia Restaurant, features flexible open seating and two dining times. And the dress code on board has been slightly relaxed to reflect modern travel trends.
