We are experienced cruises using many different cruise lines but this was the first time that we had used Cunard. The main reason was that two ports of call were in India which we had yet to visit. Singapore was as usual a delight have ... 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

Having been very disappointed with our QM2 cruise 2 years ago our expectations of Cunard were low. We were pleasantly surprised that in virtually all aspects this ship was good and it appeared to us that Cunard had got it's act together. ... Read more

We boarded at Athens on a incredibly hot day. Embarkation was swift and comfortable even though we were 3 hours early. We had a balcony cabin on deck 4 kept immaculately by our steward. Lunch we tried to take where ever possible in the ... Read more

First, we enjoyed the cruise, as much for its amazing itinerary as anyhting else. The Greek and Turkish ancient (Greek/Roman) history that we learned so much about as kids, came to life. The ship itself is really nice, a good size, ... Read more

This was one of those deals which includes 2 nights in Rome before embarking, flights and transfers at an attractive price + balcony cabin. I suppose corner cutting is going to happen and in this case it was that the flights involved a ... Read more

Embarkation very slow in Southampton but much better in Brooklyn, New York. This was our 4th journey on QM2 making a return journey and it was as good as ever. Attentive staff, good food in the Britannia restaurant and King's Court; good ... Read more

Okay, the QM2 is showing some age and the food isn't great, but still very good, but overall a nostalgic experience and I would do it again, (our 3rd time this time). There is nothing like it to leave New York aboard this ocean liner, (not ... Read more

We've discovered over the years that the best way to cross the ocean is by ship. Comparing the QM2 with a cramped aluminum tube, and remembering that the QM2 includes lodging, food and entertainment for a week, it actually comes out ... Read more

Embarkation - was a dream, very efficient and in our cabin within an hour of arriving at Southampton. We brought on a bottle of spirits and some mixers with no trouble. I think as long as you are discreet and don't take advantage, it's ... Read more

We have crossed the Atlantic dozens of times but always at 39,000 feet, so we decided it was time we tried a more relaxed means of travel and make a transatlantic crossing by ship, hence the title of this review. Embarkation We flew ... Read more

Given that the cruise industry is becoming very competitive these days, we would have thought that Cunard would have tried to keep up with the other "luxury" lines. First the good: The embarkation process was very quick and ... Read more

After all the hype in the lead up what a disappointment to board a smelly ship no more than a floating retirement village including passengers dying or being taken by ambulance at every port. The food is bland and boring, the activities ... Read more
