I thought I would share with others my first-hand experience of being a newbie voyager. Firstly, you will note that I use the word “voyager” in lieu of cruiser the reason being is the trans-atlantic crossing is a voyage and not ... Read more

Cabin 10133 on Cunard Queen Mary to ship travelling out on 24 May for two nights. We stayed in a penthouse suite. The suite was quite nice but there was certainly no butler service. Just a room steward whom we saw a couple of times if ... Read more

Sailed from Southhampton to NYC with a friend in late May. We each had our own cabin and loved the privacy and on board social experiences. All lectures and educational offerings were superb. The big band and the Royal dramatic arts ... Read more

From the embarkation to disembarkation the whole experience was wonderful. I have sailed with P&O before which was very nice, but Cunard really was a different class. We had a balcony cabin on the 8th deck. The cabin was spacious, ... Read more

We wanted to do a transatlantic crossing on a real ocean liner and the QM2 is probably the only benchmark for that kind of travel. The passengers were dominated by the average age well north of late 60's; 40% Brit 40% US. Overall, ... Read more

We loved the Queen Elizabeth and thought she was a beautiful, traditional ship. The ship is not too big, which gives it a very friendly feel as we often bumped into people we’d eaten breakfast with etc. Embarkation was efficient ... Read more

If you like the older style of passenger ship, then this Queen Elizabeth may appeal. Although beset with lines of balconies which would fit well into a Benidorm apartment block, the overall shape, albeit without any sheer at all, is ... Read more

We decided to return from Europe via the QMII since it was leaving just days after we left our Western Mediterranean Cruise and left from the port where we disembarked. The ship is impressive, very lovely. We enjoyed the lecturers and ... Read more

Just been on board for 10 days and was pleased to get off, personally I found the food not to be 5 star, the buffet area, although the food was better, I likened it to a motorway dining area, with the seating arranged so people were ... Read more

We like Cunard for still keeping the style of cruising. There are some formal nights with formal/cocktail dress ups, but we like it. We like that the company keep the same dress code for dinners at the restaurant. It is classical style. ... Read more

This 7 night cruise was our 4th time aboard Mary, and our 5th week in terms of days. We were keen to see the changes made during the refit last year as we had spent 16 nights on her just prior (BNE/HKG) Boarding at HKG was great, we ... Read more
