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 chose this cruise because of the ports visited. I made my own arrangements for Newport, Boston and St John and took the ship's tours in Bar Harbor, Halifax and Quebec.. Embarkation in Brooklyn went very smoothly. We were in our Princess ... 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

Loved the ports of call. Newport mansions wonderful. Boston hop on and off, Bar Harbor the Nation Park, eating in a local restaurant, lobster yummy, St John not really much to see, the high tide waters meeting not awe inspiring. ... Read more

My elderly father and I embarked upon the QM2 for a 12 night cruise to New England, the Canadian Maritimes and Quebec. Whilst we usually cross the Atlantic on the QM2 for holidays, we decided to venture a "cruise". As usual, we were ... Read more

My wife and I just returned from the September 10, 2013 sailing of Cunard's Queen Mary 2 to New England and Canada and, although we liked the cruise, we learned that preventing the Norovirus is easier than getting over it. Upon sailing ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise to get away. Prior to the voyage, we purchased two wine packages and a dinner at Todd English Restaurant. I wanted to surprise my husband with the dinner and the card that was presented in the cabin with ... 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

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

There is a big difference between the Grills experience and every other accommodation. From preferred embarkation, to the food provided, to the convenient access to information, we experienced the best available. As Grills guests ... Read more
