I have sen the QV and sailed on QM2, and I am about to go to the shipyard for a pre-inaugural visit to the Queen Elezabeth 2.
I love the Cunard ships - they are very elegant in decor, and the nighttime balls are tres fun. The Ascot and the Black and White balls.
QV is a little short on storage space, just so you know (am oddity) but otherwise she is a darling little ship.
I write a comun for another web site sometimes and I recommended that as one of the Fall cruises in Europe. FOXBusiness.com - European Autumn Cruise Bargains
The ship has plenty of Cunard history on it and an amazing library and theater. The food is delicious as well.
