We travelled in QM2 for a short 10-day leg of the ship's current world cruise, taking advantage of a generous sale that had been advertised. In short, the experience was everything we expected, and more. Every aspect of the ship's ... Read more

We have always wanted to cruise on Cunard and we weren't disappointed. Queen Mary 2 was just as we expected. Great service, great food, plenty of space and a touch of class. We had 14 days on the ship and the dinner menu was different ... Read more

Chose this cruise, Sydney to Hong Kong on QM2 to get a sample of Cunard Line, not so much the ports. Always been on my bucket list to try QM2. Embarkation in Sydney was very good, efficient, only had to wait half an hour to embark. ... Read more

Britannia restaurant had excellent food and service for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our cabin steward was the most helpful and hard working man, friendly but unobtrusive and he always had the cabin looking immaculate. All the ... Read more

We are experienced cruises using many different cruise lines but this was the first time that we had used Cunard. The main reason was that two ports of call were in India which we had yet to visit. Singapore was as usual a delight have ... Read more

This was our first Cunard cruise although we have been on many others (15+), mostly Princess and Holland America. We thought the ship was beautiful, lots of wood and marble and sparkling clean. Our balcony cabin was lovely but typical of ... Read more

As two senior ladies we had always fancied the "Queens" experience so when attractive pricing was offered we took the opportunity. We arrived for embarkation at the suggested time( a good idea I feel) to find the crowd quite ... Read more

My husband and I joined Queen Victoria in Brisbane and sailed through to Hong Kong in March 2016. We are Ballroom Dances so Cunard suits us really well. We love that you can get dressed up every night. Where else can you go to a ... Read more

We paid a huge sum for 18 nights in top Queens Grill class. I found very little in return from Cunard/Carnival. We were not shown to our cabin (we did not know this ship). Except for breakfast the food did not reflect the flowery ... Read more

We have been on many cruises from Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand, and this one was by far the best. The ship is beautiful, and the service impeccable -- when I asked at the purser's desk for more recommendation cards, I was told ... Read more

The ship is majestic in every way - it is like stepping back 100 years with all the modern trimmings! The staterooms have ample room and are maintained immaculately by the stewards - you fell that nothing is a problem to them and pamper ... Read more

Beautiful ship. Lovely and immaculate public areas. Excellent service. A comfortable cabin. But the food! It varied between poor and good, subject to the venue and the day. The so-called "King's Court" buffet area resembled an airport ... Read more

We're first time cruisers and really looked forward to QM2, even after reading some of the more critical reviews here. That said our embarkation was relatively painless. No problems with photo's or credit card details, but a number of ... Read more
