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

We were on the post-remastering cruise for the QM2, boarding in Hamburg immediately after the dry dock. We love the QM2 and love the experience of transatlantic crossings. This was our 20th cruise and our 6th time on Cunard. ... Read more

We had driven around the Fjords of Norway in 1972 in a Saab I purchased in Amsterdam and shipped home from Goteborg, Sweden. We have seen the Fjords in New Zealand by air and bus and in Alaska by seas so we decided to go back to Norway to ... Read more

One of the things you have to remember about joining a Cunard Round The World Voyage, is that the people who can spare the time and money to take a trip like this are likely to be retired and spending the kids inheritance. This means that ... Read more

Having previously cruised on the Queen Victoria and the Queen Elizabeth in 2013, I thought that I would 'complete the set' by joining the QM2 on the final leg of her 2016 World Cruise from Dubai to Southampton. How things have ... Read more

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

We have been on many cruises from Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand, and this one was by far the best. The ship is beautiful, and the service impeccable -- when I asked at the purser's desk for more recommendation cards, I was told ... 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

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

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
