This was our second TA on QM2 - we had previously travelled in Princess Grill but this was a treat so we splashed out on Queens Grill - expectations were high! Embarkation in Brooklyn was a mess - we were held in a packed ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Queen Elizabeth, she is a beautiful ship. Our cabin was bigger than we expected and perfect for us. The bed was so comfortable, the best ever. There were good quality toiletries provided in the bathroom. ... Read more

I chose Princess Grill accommodations for a December/Christmas crossing on the QM2 (room 10.036). The upgrade from standard Balcony Suites is well worth the cost, if it is within your budget. The room is wonderful and the Princess Grill ... Read more

PART ONE Where am I ?, Well mid Atlantic actually, and travelling over a relatively smooth, rough ocean. The decks are closed again as they always seem to be on transatlantic crossings during the winter months and everyone appears to ... Read more

...the level of entertainment in the theatre. Not a major issue but annoying to be offered third class acrobats, jugglers and so-called comedians. Cunard should try to understand that a Butlin's type inter-active panto style offering is ... Read more

As a regular (Diamond WC) I noticed again lowered standards. The meals in the Britannia restaurant have again lost quality and taste. Almost every dish was served cold. It was impossible to have a beer or a wine with a lunch neither at the ... Read more

This was for us a "taster" cruise to see if we liked the whole concept of a cruise break/holiday - having become disillusioned with airports and the delays and waiting times. The experience could not have been smoother and more ... Read more

My friend and I booked this cruise as she wanted to go the Christmas market in Bruges, Cunards dates Friday to Monday worked best for us and I live in Dorset so Southampton is an ideal port for me and a free day at sea to make use of the ... Read more

The Queen Mary 2 was all I expected it to be. The ship was clean, the crew friendly, the evening activities were plentiful as well as were the daytime activities. Our cabin was kept spotless by our room steward Dennis. It was 5106, ... Read more

Sadly this cruise was totally miss-sold as a Big Band Cruise, as the only sign of the theme was on the Saturday Night with a Big Band Ball in the Queens room (The theatre orchestra joined up with the Queens Room orchestra) Most of your ... Read more

Embarkation at Southampton was acceptable - much as other cruise companies. Our cabin, a sheltered balcony was, again, quite acceptable - and albeit winter, I in particular appreciated the balcony. But we were fortunate in having ... Read more

We have never been on any of the Queens and felt that the time had come to have this unique experience.. a time warp.. a visit to an era long past. We are experienced cruisers, being frequent passengers on the Celebrity, Regent and ... Read more

After a crazy 9 days in the USA, which we arrived at on the Carnival Vista, (my Review is “Loving The Vista Loca”) we were looking forward to joining Queen Mary 2 for a slightly more subdued crossing back to the UK. Firstly, ... Read more

This was a first for us- I would consider us well travelled but always by air. The glamorous image of this crossing was appealing. It was for a special occasion so we booked a Queens Grill suite, expecting a luxurious experience. The ... Read more

Review QM2 Nov 2016 I was so excited at the thought of sailing on the QM2, the ‘crème de la crème’ of ships, however I was disappointed. I am fairly new to cruising having only cruised twice on Celebrity in ... Read more

This was a second cruise for me on the QM2, and it began with a delay boarding in Southampton, surprising after literally walking right on the ship after my arrival earlier in October in NYC to travel to the UK. It proved to be a ... Read more

We were delayed going out to Barcelona with Titan Airways. When we eventually went through the gate there were buses to get us out to the plane. It was awful for the elderly - we were like sardines and had to wait over an hour on the ... Read more
