Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth was launched in 2010 but reminds you of the era when formal dining and ballroom galas were popular on cruise ships. Still, it also offers many modern conveniences, such as computer lounges and lots of shopping options. Up to 2,081 guests are accommodated across the ship’s 12 decks, and most of them generally appreciate the excellent dining (with 8 included restaurant options) and the beautiful decor. Sadly, its service apparently doesn’t match the rest of the atmosphere. Overall, the Queen Elizabeth charms with traditional elegance and modern touches. The onboard currency is the US Dollar.
