This was my last voyage before the dry dock coming after the WC, so I hope to write a comparison next year - as we have booked the same class and the exact same trip - Quebec to NYC. I hope this review helps give a few tidbits and ... Read more

We had previously cruised on Princess Cruise Line, and loved every minute! Surprisingly, Cunard, showed itself to be a step down. Certainly, not something we anticipated. Cabin: Our balcony stateroom was very comfortable, clean, ... Read more

Booked this cruise because friends were going and they asked if we would join them. Unfortunately, the idea was doomed from the start because they booked a room with access to the Princess dining room whilst (I learned to use the word ... Read more

This was our first time on any Cunard ship, and it did not disappoint. My review is likely aimed more at those who have never sailed Cunard, for you experienced ones out there probably know everything I am going to write! My husband (65) ... Read more

This was our second cruise on the QM2, the first being a TA in 2009. I must say that the liner looks pretty much the same way as it did in 2009 which was a relief to us as we love this liner! We flew into NYC a few days prior to re-visit ... Read more

First cruise ever and I was awestruck. Embarkation was very speedy - taxi to stateroom in 20 minutes; luggage arrived in the next 20. Room was very clean and spacious enough - lots of closet space and hangers. Only electrical outlet is ... Read more

This was my 5th time on the QM2, and this time my wife and I decided to take our toddler and in-laws, who have never sailed before. We purposely chose a short voyage out of a local port for convenience, and were very happy with the ... Read more

Check in went fast because as a ''Grills'' passenger I got to bypass the “steerage” line – non Grill, non-Platinum or Diamond passengers – which was quite long. Once on board the stewards are now in the hallway to ... Read more

We just got off the Queen Mary 2 Independence Day cruise. NYC to Halifax, then to Boston and back to NYC. Many troubles along the way - most not due to Cunard, just bad luck! (Fog in Halifax, cancelled fireworks on the 4th, pouring rain ... Read more

Sailed July 2014
My wife and I cruise 2-3 times per year but had never cruised with Cunard. She was always asking ... "When can we go on the Queen Mary 2". I can honestly say that we got two cruises for the price of one. First and last. I have never ... Read more

Just returned from five nights on the QM2. It was our first time on a cruise ship and my reaction to the experience is "so-so". The ship is certainly grand, and there were many activities planned. It is definitely aimed at a more mature ... Read more

We travelled to New York the day before the cruise and stayed overnight at the Comfort Inn, Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. This is a great location if you are sailing from Red Hook and want a basic, clean and inexpensive hotel for the night. Be ... Read more

Our recent trip on the Queen Mary 2 showed how over the last year we are not guests on a Cunard Ship, but merely another customer to be mined. This was the third Cunard Cruise for my wife and me this year. We gave high marks to our Panama ... Read more

I sailed twice on the QM2 in 2004, a year after she was launched and our experience in the Queens grill category and the Britannia was excellent. Unfortunately, our most recent trip to New England/ Canada paled in comparison. Embarkation ... Read more

This was cruise #2 on the QM2. We are two gay men in our late 50's and wanted to do one more short cruise to make certain we could handle a much longer cruise. We loved the QM2 ship last year and it did not disappoint us this year. We ... Read more
