I do think that one's opinion of a ship is highly subjective, and I love QE, so I will try to be objective too.
The ship itself is beautiful. It is easy to find your way around, it has a great promenade deck if you like walking, and the public rooms are well laid out and never seem too crowded.
We have eaten in all 4 of the dining rooms, and although I must say the Grills are the nicest, we have had excellent food and service in all 4, and I love the layout of them all. If you are going to be in the Britannia dining room, my favorite tables are those on deck 2 close to a window. I love watching the world go by while I eat.
The cabins are well laid out, but the bathrooms are very small in Britannia and Britannia club - we always bring a shower caddy with us as there is not enough room for all of my hair products, but it does reduce the available space in an already ridiculously small shower, with an annoying shower curtain.
We have found the staff to be wonderful on all of our cruises on QE, could not ask for better.
The enrichment programs we have experienced have all been very interesting. I enjoy the production shows, but have not always liked the other entertainers - we have had some comedians and singers that were simply not to my taste - but that is very subjective.
I would book another trip on her in an instant if there was an itinerary I wanted to do
