I was on one of the first luxury cruises to leave the UK since the pandemic. Here’s what it was like, from boarding to making friends as a solo traveler.

I spotted various references to royalty on the ship.

Launched in 2010, the Queen Elizabeth is Cunard’s newest luxury cruise ship.

The cruise line has been linked to royalty since 1934 when it named a ship after Queen Mary, according to its website.

The Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth II, and Princess Diana all visited Cunard ships over the years. Elizabeth II made history by traveling on the Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1990, marking the first time a reigning monarch had sailed on a passenger ship operating a commercial voyage.

I found plenty of tributes to the royals, including portraits of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
