It was our third time to take QM2. We took QM2 last year and were disappointed. But, we still wanted to give her a second chance, especially knowing that there was a dry port refurbishment. Unfortunately, she disappointed us one more ... Read more

Background: This is our 22nd cruise and first on Cunard. The ship had just come out of a 3 week dry dock where most everything that we could use was replaced/updated. Could not expect a ship to look any better. I think that my ... Read more

The opportunity to sail on the Queen Mary 2 was the appeal. We sailed from New York to Halifax, stopped in Boston, then back to New York. The cruise was thoroughly enjoyable. The QM2 was just remastered and I was wondering if the ... Read more

Embarkation was a nightmare. Waited well over an hour in a hot terminal with minimal attention and supervision by Cunard who only cared about their status customers. The published itinerary was misleading; stated that we would be in ... Read more

This cruise was a big disappointment. I am a travel agent and have been on several cruise lines and this was my worst experience. I chose this cruise line because I liked the short itinerary and the high level of service they advertise. ... Read more

Major disappointment. The weather was bad but not Cunard fault. Six days not being able to get out in deck was wearing but Cunard did what it could. Four formal nights was at least one to many. The service from staff was excellent ... Read more

We wanted to get away from our winter in Toronto! We had a balcony (partially covered) deck 4 aft but was good as we did have some rough weather. QM2 is definitely the best ship to be on when seas get rough! Even some of the staff who had ... Read more

this is the third year that I've traveled on the QM2 with my mother for Christmas and the second year that my teenage daughters have joined us. It's a low key, pleasant way to avoid the hassles of the holiday season. I write this ... Read more

A bit painful to pen this, since QM2 deserves much better care than she is getting from her owners. First, the positive: we still found many things to love as we did on our very first cruise in May last year. Many public spaces still ... Read more

The Queen Mary 2, as we expected is a beautiful, spacious ship. The amenities offered are wonderful. We took this trip because Crosby Stills and Nash, a 1960s rock group were slated to do 3 concerts onboard. But the lectures offered ... Read more
