I put "cruiser" in quotes above as one of the reasons for taking this trip was to experience the closest thing still available to taking a voyage on an ocean liner. Cunard likes to call it a crossing rather than a cruise and that is what ... Read more

We are veteran cruisers, and this was our 35th, the fifth with Cunard, the second on the QM2. We chose this crossing because it would give us a few days in Hamburg beforehand, an excursion in Southampton, and a crossing, which would give ... Read more

This was our sixth transatlantic on the Queen Mary 2, our third going westbound, and our first in the springtime. It was a "special" voyage, because Cunard was celebrating QM2's tenth anniversary. We passengers were to travel on a ... Read more

This was my 19th cruise - my first on Cunard and my last. The ship was full of mold - the dining rooms and photo galleries smelled of backed up sewage. There is so much hype and it did not live up to it - don;t waste your money - stick to ... Read more

My partner and I sailed for the first time (on Cunard) in a Queen's Grill. We cruise only in large suites as we enjoy time away from the masses. Embarkation: As some have mentioned it was a right mess. Not enough staff to take care of the ... Read more

I boarded the QE on January 10, 2014 for a West-bound Transatlantic cruise immediately following my East-bound Transatlantic on Queen Mary 2. Both were beautiful experiences, though very different. The QE is much smaller than the Queen ... Read more

We just completed our first transatlantic cruise aboard the Queen Mary 2. We selected the Queens Grill. We were Q5. We can’t imagine going any other way in the future. We think we would rather save up and go once in QG rather than go ... Read more

I will try and be as constructive as possible. First can I say that we are regular cruisers (20) but have only sailed with cunard twice before. We are loyal Celebrity Cruisers and nothing on this cruise will serve to change that. In all ... Read more

We took the Queen Mary 2 across from Southampton to New York in December 2013. Our package included 2 nights in New York as well as all flights and transfers: a really good deal. It certainly lived up to our expectations. Check-in was ... Read more

Arrived by first class coach which was clean, comfortable and a pleasent journey. I like the fact that once your luggage is on board the coach you do not have to handle this again until you are inside your cabin. A rather long journey from ... Read more

I wrote a review a while back titled "Declining standards in a single year," complaining that the food in the Britannia was not what it had been. This was our third crossing in 2013, and I'm happy to say that the food is back to what we ... Read more
