Although we have been on a fair number of European cruises, this was the first time we have sailed transatlantic and was the last part of an overland trip from California home to the UK. We booked in advance a cabin (stateroom) with ... 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 took an eastbound transatlantic, spent a month in Europe on two other cruises, and took a westbound transatlantic back to New York. We had ample time to explore the ship and find our likes and dislikes. CON: (1) Our Verizon I-phones ... Read more

This 21-day New York  Norway  New York voyage was my fifth on the Queen Mary 2. The elegant ocean liner experience is a high priority for me and I had voluminously posted my opinions regarding the new ''loosened up'' dress code ... Read more

Having got your attention with that subject line, I can tell you that, in practical terms this is a reality. As I write this we are in the middle of the North Atlantic, en route from NYC to Southampton, UK. It is day 5 of a 7 night ... Read more

Okay, so we decided not to fly for this cruise because who likes to go through security all the time and then sit on a plane? So we took this from New York(Brooklyn really although cruise critic doesn't have that for a choice) and went to ... Read more

OK, well, there was nothing really bad about the QM2, but I still came away from the cruise feeling dissatisfied. I am 60 y/o. I would guess the average age on this ship was probably 80 y/o. I mean there were probably 90 year olds plus ... Read more

A transatlantic voyage has been sold to us all on the basis that it is a grand experience. Well, on the QM2, it is and it isn't. Boarding at New York is something of a let down. I expected something more than what is effectively a large ... Read more

By crossing the Atlantic Ocean 'the-old-fashion-way' was truly an inspiring experience. Although we did not look faults or mistakes, as we were on a vacation and not participating in a detailed inspection tour, we really could not find any ... Read more

Queens Grill first impression, priority embarkation means nothing except 3 dedicated staff, we still had to sit and wait while general boarding passed through security? The Queens Grill Suite was not that impressive. A freshen up ... Read more

Although I had taken a number of prior cruises, they were all, with one exception, in the Caribbean, and frankly nothing like a Trans-Atlantic voyage on the world's only liner exclusively built for long ocean-going trips. If you like the ... Read more

We sailed on the beautiful QM2 early January from NY to Southhampton. We boarded about 5 hours late as the crew was disinfecting the ship because of a norovirus outbreak on their previous Caribbean sailing. We scoped out the whole ship ... Read more

We spent the whole cruise "cruising" from one end of the ship to the other, exploring every beautiful nook and cranny of this big ship. So many places to walk, or sit and watch the waves, or play cards. On the last day we discovered a new ... Read more

Arrived at a very busy terminal on the 14th and we had to wait approx 30 minutes before being checked in, although well organised they should open more terminals during busy periods. Not a smooth embarkation. Our cabin was spotless and ... Read more
