If you are booking a Saver Fare you may be kept awake by Band ( just the base player in this case ), you are not warned of this before booking. You should expect to contact the Pursar's desk 4 times before something is done. Many ... Read more

Embarkation was a nightmare. Waited well over an hour in a hot terminal with minimal attention and supervision by Cunard who only cared about their status customers. The published itinerary was misleading; stated that we would be in ... Read more

We sailed on the QM2 Remastered crossing from Southampton to New York. Our embarkation was slightly delayed (approx 1.5hrs) due to IT problems but you need to be realistic when 1000s of passengers are being processed and keep calm. ... Read more

Conventional cruising wisdom recommends avoiding any sailing right after a major refit for good reasons: work is still ongoing and the crew members have been off their service routines for a few weeks. These issues were evident on the ... 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
