Somewhat disappointed with our cruise on the QM2. We never eat in buffets so were limited for choice for lunch on embarkation day, to their Sir Samuel’s café. Nice coffee ( charged for) very limited snacks. On the matter of ... Read more

Loved the ports of call. Newport mansions wonderful. Boston hop on and off, Bar Harbor the Nation Park, eating in a local restaurant, lobster yummy, St John not really much to see, the high tide waters meeting not awe inspiring. ... Read more

My elderly father and I embarked upon the QM2 for a 12 night cruise to New England, the Canadian Maritimes and Quebec. Whilst we usually cross the Atlantic on the QM2 for holidays, we decided to venture a "cruise". As usual, we were ... Read more

When I booked this voyage, it was a last minute something to do over the summer. It was one of the best ever, and I started sailing in 1949 with the Queen of Bermuda from New York to Hamilton. My husband and I did a lot of cruising and ... Read more

We loved our cruise around the British Isles. It was probably one of our favorite cruises but we had two big complaints. We don't know whether Cunard has gone downhill or whether after sailing on Azamara Journey this spring we have become ... Read more

I'm an active senior solo veteran traveler with 38 cruises experienced. As a child, my family went to a bon voyage party on the old Queen Mary, and I still remember the elegance and tradition of that grand old ship. With Carnival owning ... Read more

Sailed January 2013
Our previous two cruises were both with Celebrity so it is in this context that I comment on our QM2 experience. First the good points: Our cabin even though it was a 'port-hole' class on Deck 6 near the bow was excellent and I couldn't ... Read more

The Queen Victoria is the smaller version of Cunard style than the Queen Mary 2. The ship is simpler in design. The public rooms on deck two and three are located on one corridor that runs the length of the ship. Most of these bars and ... Read more

The public rooms on 'Queen Elizabeth; are all decorated very elegantly and pleasantly, and after 3 years still look almost brand new. The impressive Grand Lobby, with the Viscount Linley marquetry/inlay panel is very reminiscent of the ... Read more

We have a special fondness for the old QE II and so we were a little apprehensive about how we would feel about the Queen Victoria. Whilst the QE II remains our favorite the Queen Victoria runs a respectable second. By todays standards I ... Read more

My first cruise was a great experience. I took the subway from Times Square to the first stop in Brooklyn then a $15 cab to the pier. I carried my bags on (and off at Southampton) so got on board very quickly. Fantastic departure under ... Read more

A ride on the QM2 cannot be compared with a 'normal' cruise ship, since its is built to cross the atlantic. We were (mostly) very pleased with the set-up. Cabin 11072 on the 11th floor was very comfortable (bigger than a comparable ... Read more

This was our first trip on the Queen Victoria having made a number of prior cruises on the Queen Mary 2. Embarkation at the rather huge cruise terminal at LA, was relatively hassle free and we were soon on board. Our luggage arrived at ... Read more

Gaining our shipboard experience from many (much) earlier Atlantic crossings on Cunard, and other Lines, we are trying, like Cunard, we felt, to 'get our heads round' the present-day 'cruising' culture. Having sailed in several 'Vista' ... Read more

A CRITICAL SUMMARY OF OUR CROSSING ON QM2 The Queen Mary 2 is big.  Too big to be easy to get around, although, not too big for the task of scheduled crossings on the north atlantic where her size means that even in poor ... Read more

This was our first holiday cruise - we'd been pampered on business-related cruises twice before - so we had some trepidation and I would say only average expectations. Delighted to say the Queen Elizabeth and staff excelled despite the ... Read more
