 Queen Elizabeth 2

Queen Elizabeth 2 has been retired and is no longer in service

This is, without a doubt, the most famous ship of our time. Built on the famed river Clyde, the Queen Elizabeth 2 was christened by HRH the Queen in 1969. Originally a steam ship, she was converted into a motor ship in the world's largest-ever technical conversion of a passenger ship in 1986/87, carried out by the internationally renowned Lloyd Werft in Germany. She ran trans Atlantic crossings until her younger sister, the Queen Mary 2 was launched. Since then she is serving as a cruise ship offering itineraries world wide. She was most recently refurbished in 1999.

    Let me begin by offering a valuable piece of information, shared with me repeatedly while aboard the QE2.   That is, the QE2 is not, I repeat NOT a cruise ship. It is, rather, a more

    Few reviews seem to focus on travelling with young children, so I just wanted to sing the praises of the nursery on board the QE2.   It's the only one I've found that will give more

    I like this ship but would not recommend the QE2 to new cruisers or those who want glitz, glamour, partying or sophistication.   To me, the QE2 is like a stately home - holding more
