A Closer Look at Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth Cruises


The stunning Queen Elizabeth is the newest addition to Cunard’s fleet and brings them back to a situation where they operate three ocean liners. In the two years prior to 2010, when Queen Elizabeth made her debut, the cruise line only had two ships in operation after the iconic QE2 was retired in 2008.

As the most modern of the three vessels, Queen Elizabeth has many contemporary features and a décor that reflects the modern era but that also tips its hat to the traditions of days gone by. She is not the first Cunard ship to bear this name though, as the original Queen Elizabeth was in operation between 1940 and 1961 and was the largest passenger liner of her time.

Today, the new Queen Elizabeth transports keen cruisers to many different regions as part of extended cruises that stop at ports including Hong Kong, Brisbane and Honolulu. There are also shorter trips to the Baltics, Middle East and the Mediterranean, whilst the familiar transatlantic crossing from Southampton to New York is still as popular as ever.

From the outside the vessel looks very much the same as her nautical sister, Queen Victoria. However, although the interior arrangement is also similar, Queen Elizabeth’s tribute to past ships of the same name means that the design itself is very different.

Since she was christened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, she has become a firm favourite with regular passengers who are pleased to find a very astute balance between two very distinct points in time.
