Queen Elizabeth – What to do
With such a rich history, it is no surprise to find nods to the past so prevalent on board Queen Elizabeth, with Cunard Place offering an engaging history lesson and the Cunarder’s Gallery displaying photographs of the famous faces to have set foot on board Cunard’s fleet. More celebrity names from Cunard’s illustrious past can be found on screen at the Classic Film Club.
Elsewhere, enjoy a relaxing day at Queen Elizabeth’s famous Royal Spa, or take to the deck for a game of tennis, a swim or enter a tournament to win one of the ship’s entertaining on deck games. Guests can also place their bets at the Empire Casino, or enjoy a stylish garden party on the specially created terrace at the rear of the ship. Classy afternoon tea is also a daily occurrence, complete with scones and white-gloved waiters.
Alternatively, sit back and enjoy the view in one of Queen Elizabeth’s bars and lounges. The original Queen Elizabeth cruise liner is remembered in the ornate Midships Bar, while guests can enjoy a pre-dinner martini at the Commodore Club. There are all sorts of settings on Queen Elizabeth to enjoy a drink, from the very British Golden Lion pub, to drinks on your sun lounger by the Pavilion Pool or a wild night in the beautiful Yacht Club nightspot.
