I don't like to fly was the main reason for taking this cruise. getting on and off the ship was a nightmare. 2500 people and it took hours for the process. We are used to 5000 people and have it take half the time. Maybe if they pulled ... Read more

We chose this cruise to experience the Suez Canal and for that the cruise was very successful. How did I rate the cruise overall - average I suppose? The food was good, especially buffet breakfast and lunch, loved the stir-fry and Thai ... Read more

Always wanted to cruise on Queen Mary 2 and experience the legend, Cunard and the past splendour of a transatlantic ocean liner. It was also my first cruise. Sailing from Sydney to Tasmania - return seemed a good way to enjoy this ... Read more

We chose this cruise so we could see the Magellan Straits from our balcony (even chose starboard side to make sure of the best view) and the ship sailed through the Straits in the dead of night! That was disappointing, but cruising by ... Read more

For 799 USD on a balcony incl. 850 USD OBC you better go than staying home. Embarkation was "disappointing" since the weather was foggy and rainy. So not a real welcome feeling with a great farewell out of New York like we had ... Read more

Xmas/New Year Getaway: Was Wonderful. This is our 16th cruise & my spouse claims it as the BEST. We were familiar with NYC because we live in Montreal & had been there many times so we simply flew down, stayed in a nice ... Read more

We saw this deal last August for three nights in New York and return by QM2. We had never been to this city before and always thought that we would try one of the "Queen's" at sometime so the two came together nicely. Neither ... Read more

We booked parking recommended by Cunard. We arrived at the ship and within two minutes our baggage and car had been taken, what a great start. Our balcony cabin was incredible and everything was spot on . We received a half bottle of ... 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

Length and time of the year means little or no chance of children on board. Britannia balcony cabin on deck 5 toward the front was ideal for us and as we did not intend going ashore too often we were well placed for the ships facilities ... Read more

I booked with Queen Victoria mainly because I liked the itinerary. The Queen Victoria is an amazing boat - spotlessly clean and shiny, elegant and comfortable! It was just beautiful! The staff were very attentive and provided excellent ... Read more

Embarkation was quick and easy. Our room was ready and was overall impressed with the efficiency. Although this ship has recently undergone a remastering and will always be the Icon of the Seas - we still found it tired looking. I am ... Read more
