We did this crossing previously with friends to Southampton and throughly enjoyed it. As a result of us talking about it, we had another group of friends who wanted to take the Queen on to Hamburg, Germany. Just wish the embarkation was ... Read more

We enjoyed our transatlantic cruise very much. We had a lovely, large Queen Suite and enjoyed the Queen level experience . We were able to eat when we wanted and enjoyed a private lounge with entertainment. I enjoyed the Canyon Ranch Spa ... Read more

Major disappointment. The weather was bad but not Cunard fault. Six days not being able to get out in deck was wearing but Cunard did what it could. Four formal nights was at least one to many. The service from staff was excellent ... Read more

Returning to the QM2 was like revisiting an old friend. Immediately upon boarding, I let out an audible sigh. Over the next few hours, as I returned to favorite haunts like the Commodore Club, that warm comfort returned as I relaxed into a ... Read more

My lifelong dream had been to sail across the Atlantic on the QE2. Sadly, it was taken out of commission before I had that opportunity, but after I retired and I decided I would treat myself to a crossing. As my nephew was to be married in ... Read more

This was the last leg of a world cruise by the QM2 and we were sailing from Dubai back to Southampton through the Suez Canal. We had a ''Sheltered Balcony'' as the balconies in the Staterooms(Cabins) on Deck 4 are in the hull of the ship. ... 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 chose the cruise as QM2 is the last ship of its type, also going through the Suez Canal. We ticked both of those boxes and that is the best we can say about the cruise. It was infact the worst cruise we have ever been on. Due to ... Read more

I mostly agree with the points raised in previous reviews so will not repeat them but will add a few more. The good first Roy walker, Kelly Holmes and some of the speakers were good. Tom O' connor was quite good but past his best ... Read more

Embarkation & disembarkation went smoothly, however the ship was so disappointing. Cunard market the Queen Mary 2 as the Flag Ship of their fleet. It was shabby and showing its age. In the Britannia Restaurant, The Golden Lion Pub ... Read more

As two senior ladies we had always fancied the "Queens" experience so when attractive pricing was offered we took the opportunity. We arrived for embarkation at the suggested time( a good idea I feel) to find the crowd quite ... Read more

This was our 3rd time on QM2 as we enjoy the ship so much, we prefer the refined elegance and the ship itself more than the theme park gimmicks of other Lines, (I am a great fan of the tradition and romance of the great Lines of the past). ... Read more

We paid a huge sum for 18 nights in top Queens Grill class. I found very little in return from Cunard/Carnival. We were not shown to our cabin (we did not know this ship). Except for breakfast the food did not reflect the flowery ... Read more

We sailed 2 sectors on the world cruise in 2015. When an unbelievably cheap fare was offered for a trans--Pacific crossing we couldn't help ourselves. About 1,000 other Australians took up the offer and flew to Santiago to join Queen Mary ... Read more
