I was ambivalent to say the least before embarking on this adventure with my husband and two teenage children, 14 and 17. If it ends up being the only cruise in my lifetime I can tell you it was an emotional, magical experience. The ship ... Read more

We love Cunard and we love the Victoria, so once again we chose her for our summer break. A chartered flight from Heathrow to Rome went well but was a little chaotic on the airport to the ship transfer. On booking we were told we had a top ... Read more

It was the first time my sisters and I had ever been on a cruise and we absolutely loved it! All four of us felt it exceeded our expectations and though it was expensive we felt it was worth every penny. Since coming home we cannot stop ... Read more

We were on the same cruise as Stu and Karl and indeed were their table companions. Whilst I agree with much that they said I think that the food was better than they imply, we found that there was always a reasonable choice of dishes and ... Read more

This was our second cruise on a Cunard ship. Our previous experience was on the QM2 and our cruise from Rome to Trieste on the Queen Victoria left much to be desired. I am also not used to complaining and this is the first negative ... Read more

We have cruised many different cruise lines, but have never done a transatlantic. We took the QM2 home after a week in Europe. In all, it was a lovely, relaxing voyage. We stayed in an inside cabin, as that was the cheapest alternative and ... Read more

I've lived in several cruise ports, so because of my "disdain" of how busy and crowded places get on cruise ship days, I've always been reluctant to go on one. This time however it seemed like the best way to explore some ... Read more

If you haven't recently sailed on her PLEASE do not believe most of the negative reviews. The Queen Mary 2 is stunning and in very good shape. That's the short length review. The medium review, or summary, is that the Queen Mary 2 is the ... Read more
