How it Ranks: Queen Elizabeth ranks #1 out of 3 Cunard Line Cruise Ships based on an analysis of expert and user ratings, as well as health ratings.

Taking her inaugural sailing in 2010, the Queen Elizabeth blends Old World charm with contemporary panache. On the ship, you'll find innovative public spaces like the English country-inspired Games Deck and the Royal Arcade, reminiscent of London's own Burlington Arcade. After you've explored the ship, enjoy some quiet time in the Garden Lounge, which features floor-to-ceiling windows and complimentary white-gloved afternoon tea service. Many previous passengers describe their experience as first-class all the way, praising the ship's impeccable service and refined dining venues. Travelers particularly applaud the intimate setting and decadent French fare served at the Queens Grill. Keep in mind the suite you select dictates where you'll dine throughout your voyage; for access to the Queens Grill, you'll want to reserve a stylish Queens Grill Suite, which comes with extra indulgences like complimentary Champagne and pre-dinner canapés. Princess Grill Suites are equally impressive, with fruit replenished daily, your choice of pillow and access to The Grills Lounge, The Courtyard and an exclusive deck area. Inside, Outside, Balcony and Club Balcony stateroom guests can have breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Brittania Restaurant. All rooms come with satellite TVs, plush bedding and complimentary fruit baskets. Before settling in for the night, slip away to the Queens Room or the Yacht Club for themed balls and dancing. The Queen Elizabeth's 2014 itineraries will cover the United States, the Mediterranean, Europe, Australia, the Pacific and the Middle East.
