This was our second cruise on the QM2. Although the trip was enjoyable, it appears that the overall quality of the Cunard experience has gone down since our last getaway. But let me start with a few positive items first: Dis/embarkation ... Read more

The basic trip was fine. Our expectations with Cunard are no longer high so it is wonderful to experience the individual staff member that is kind, friendly, professional and helps to make your trip special. But as the years go by you see ... Read more

We have mostly cruised on larger cruise ships that have much more activities and options ice skating, wall climbing, wave runners and large malls. We were repeatedly reminded by staff and fellow cruisers that the QM2 is not a "cruise" ship ... Read more

After a wonderful wedding in New York, we Dallasites booked our first cruise about the QM2. We wanted something elegant with great music and "old world" cruising feel. We didn't know whether or not we could like cruising, so the 5 day ... Read more

Where to begin??? My mom (from Tall, FL) and I (from DFW) were exited to cruise again together. We had been on the Holland America Zuiderdam a couple of years ago, and had a fabulous time. But enough about the competition. Since my ... Read more

We had previously only cruised with Disney with our kids and for our anniversary cruise without kids, we thought we would try something other than Disney. This cruise came to my attention because it left from NY (driving distance from ... Read more

ARRIVAL & EMBARKATION: We flew to New York and overnighted in Brooklyn the day before this cruise. The Brooklyn Car Service from La Guardia was a good recommendation by another Cruise Critic member but the Holiday Inn Express on Butler ... Read more

This was a 24 night cruise from Southampton taking in a number of maiden ports for Queen Elizabeth. On embarkation day, the QM2 was going out of the Ocean terminal, so we boarded QE at the Mayflower terminal, which we had previously ... Read more

Booked this cruise because it was the right time of year. Having seen this cruise many times, I thought - OK. Remember - be careful what you wish-it may come true. First thing-never drive to New York cruise terminal. We took a local ... Read more

When deciding to book this cruise, we were really just looking for an option for an extended July 4th weekend getaway while our kids were away at camp. We were pleasantly surprised to find this not only as an option, but also as a ... Read more

After reading other reviews of this crossing, we must have been on a different ship. We spent the first day exploring the ship, locating the planetarium, theater, dining areas, and other activity venues. At every elevator lobby there is a ... Read more

Shortly after our first cruise [Labor Day weekend 2009] we made plans for a second, longer cruise. We liked the ship and being able to use a local port, so we planned on the QM2 and a Brooklyn round trip - just longer. The sunday ... Read more

We boarded in Brooklyn Terminal which was far superior in many ways from Ft. Lauderdale---very spacious & more organized. We loved the AA category because of the 12th deck & seeming exclusivity of only 50 cabins. The dining area in ... Read more

My husband and I want to cross to England and back by ship, and the big, steady (we hope!) QM2 seems the best choice for that adventure.(Previous cruises: 8, all on the small ships of Silversea, which we love.) We live in NYC, so the 5-day ... Read more
