We travelled to Southampton to see the 3 Queens in dock and decided to take the 2 day cruise on Queen Elizabeth to Hamburg but it was really disappointing. The ship is beautiful and the cabin was nice and spacious but the food was dreadful, poor quality food badly cooked. We have travelled on over 50 cruises but the food on this ship was by far the worst. You expect to get good quality food on a cruise but not on here, there was no smoked salmon, prawns, shrimp herrings, in fact the only fish on the buffet was mackerel. We dined in the buffet because we did not see anything on the dining room menu that we liked, the choice on the first night consisted of pork stew, stir fried Beef, (not even prepared in front of you, cottage pie and very small pieces of red snapper. I had the roast beef carvery and you could not cut it never mind eat it, the following lunch was carved veal which was ok on the inside but burnt and hard on the outside. the carvery on the 2nd night was, wait for it, roast chicken, how you can carve a chicken I don't know and for the whole of the time we were in the restaurant nobody chose to try it. There were no officers around to complain too and none of the staff came to ask if you were enjoying your food. the breakfast was slightly better but again no smoked salmon for omelettes and no eggs hollandaise. The staff looked like they had been instructed not to smile and if you looked and smiled at them they turned their head away.

    I'm surprised to hear how bad the food was. We've travelled on Cunard and had great food, but our holiday was two weeks. Our best food that we've had have been with celebrity.
