We booked this cruise late, and were pleased to find it under-occupied, with 300 souls less than the full complement. We travelled to Southampton by train from Cardiff, and were met by the usual problems on First Great Western, ridiculous ... Read more

When we heard that Cunard used US currency, we expected most passengers to be American. We had seen movies of blue-rinsed widows spending their dead husband`s life insurance. We concluded that this would still be preferable to an English ... Read more

My wife and I cruised on the QE out of Southampton for 14 days. The ship was super and the ports were super! Over 35 cruises and this was one of the top ones for us. We had an Oceanview cabin and it was ok for an alternative to a balcony. ... Read more

Ignore check-in times provided by Cunard. 'Everyone' arrives at the check-in ASAP and are given the next available check-in tag. Take USA & continental EU electrical socket adaptors + an extension with several sockets - if you have ... Read more

Checking in was a slow, hot, bothersome procedure. The staff were lovely, but Southampton needs a new terminal! The state cupboards were simply furnished, but looking a little tired. Strangely the wardrobes and the "afterthought" under ... Read more

Embarkation Arrived at Southampton at 2 pm at a fairly busy port terminal. Fortunately there were plenty of staff to check everyone in and was on board the QM2 in about 15 minutes, which is probably the fastest we have ever boarded any ... Read more
