This was our first cruise and after careful research here we thought it would be a good choice as we don't like loud and flashy. Flying from Bournemouth with Titan Airways, the initial impression was not great. The flight ran to ... Read more

QM2 is like a new ship after her remastering. Everything seemed new - carpets, furniture, appointments. We have done a transatlantic before, but the Cunard "crossing" is indeed a different experience. I could tell the QM2 is a ... Read more

We were already vacationing in the U.K. when we had the sudden idea of returning to NYC by boat. Fortunately, the Aug. 1 sailing had one cabin available--a Britannica Club on deck 12--and we grabbed it. It was our first transatlantic ... Read more

WE had 5 days in New York b4 embarking on the cruise. Checking in & embarking at the NY terminal was not great & the staff pretty offhand. Not what I expect of Cunard. It sells itself high so it needs to "deliver" to ... Read more
