4.5 Editor's Rating
The prospect of traveling onboard Queen Mary 2, the world's only ocean liner, is thrilling -- now more than ever -- following the ship's £90-million transformation in 2016. QM2's refurbishment has been ...

QM2 2016 Cruise Critic Review My favorite sailings are Transatlantic and I love Cunard for her 175 year history and for the elegance and tradition she maintains. I loved the QE2 (three times) and love the QM2 as well (second sailing). ... 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

Chose this cruise because they cancelled the earlier Victoria sailing and we wanted to cruise back to the states just having completed a Costa cruise. We were celebrating our 60th Anniversary/and 80th birthdays. Because there was a lapse ... Read more

The QM2 has just finished a 25 day refurbishing in Hamburg dry dock . The QM2 now has 30 suites added on the top deck. There are also 15 more cabins (I believe geared for solo cruisers. 6 on deck two where the passenger photo gallery ... 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

We were on the post-remastering cruise for the QM2, boarding in Hamburg immediately after the dry dock. We love the QM2 and love the experience of transatlantic crossings. This was our 20th cruise and our 6th time on Cunard. ... Read more

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

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

Our first trip on a cruise. Why have we not done this before. Embarking was a stress less experience and the meet and greet was a nice touch. Our state room with enclosed balcony was a good size and the bed was so comfortable. Having ... 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

After travelling on QM2 on 3 different occasions, this was for us a total shock. In all of our cruises by now probably 100 + this had to have been the worst. To board the ship and immediately start to hear that people paid as little ... 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
