It is with a little trepidation I start this review on a cruise. I have reviewed restaurants, hotels and attractions on TripAdvisor but when it comes to reviewing the whole package it is more daunting The review will reflect my own ... 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

I chose this voyage as a result of my travel agent suggesting it instead of just another long flight. This voyage was grand and outstanding, every detail was looked after in a Royal way. I have booked another voyage on this ship in 2017 ... 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

We travelled with 2 other older couples, and thoroughly enjoyed Cunard's formula for enjoyable cruising. Compared with previous cruises, we were pleased that here were few children on board - must be showing our age! We have few ... 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

We sailed from Auckland to Adelaide on this beautiful, elegant ship and were wowed from beginning to end. We were upgraded to a balcony cabin 8103 and thought we were just so lucky. It was roomy, had a balcony which was a bit covered by ... Read more

This was my first cruise and I was unsure what to expect. I read the reviews on here so went with an open mind. Embarkation was a bit of a shock as there were so many people waiting to check in. I stupidly expected to walk straight on. ... Read more

Although this was our tenth cruise it was our first with Cunard. Our expectations at the outset were high due to Cunard's reputation and for the most part were fully justified. The expectations that were not met were due to a bizarre mix ... Read more

This cruise was a substitute for the Black Sea and Turkish Splendors which, due to Mr Putin, hardly touched the Black Sea! As we had stops at Warnemunde [Germany] and Kristiansand [Norway] on a previous cruise to St Petersburg the decision ... Read more
