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

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

A few years ago we saw the QM2 on a rare visit to San Francisco. It was a wonderful day and it seemed like the whole bay area came out to greet her. I was so impressed that I knew we would sail on her one day. Not wanting to do a ... Read more

We took the 4 night Labor Day cruise from New York and having cruised before the QM2 is all hype and little else. Yes the public rooms are lovely but that was the best thing I can say. The staff do try but they are overworked and not ... Read more
