QM2 is like a new ship after her remastering. Everything seemed new - carpets, furniture, appointments. We have done a transatlantic before, but the Cunard "crossing" is indeed a different experience. I could tell the QM2 is a ... Read more

We were already vacationing in the U.K. when we had the sudden idea of returning to NYC by boat. Fortunately, the Aug. 1 sailing had one cabin available--a Britannica Club on deck 12--and we grabbed it. It was our first transatlantic ... Read more

My wife and I booked a golf vacation to Scotland and we decided to begin our journey by taking the QM2 from NY to Southampton. The ship also made a stop in Halifax, NS. For those who may think that being on an ocean liner for 7 or 8 ... Read more

Westbound crossing in 2014 was great and we wanted to experience the remastering and a Princess Grill Suite this year, 2016, round-trip for 16 days. We flew into LGA the night before our voyage, stayed at a hotel, and took an Uber from ... Read more

We recently completed both a Westbound and Eastbound Transatlantic on Queen Mary, the first of which was immediately after the refit and the second was a month later. Here is a comparison of both crossings and my overall opinion . OUR ... Read more

WE had 5 days in New York b4 embarking on the cruise. Checking in & embarking at the NY terminal was not great & the staff pretty offhand. Not what I expect of Cunard. It sells itself high so it needs to "deliver" to ... Read more

My wife and I have sailed in Queen Mary 2 twice trans-Atlantic and once on a 12 day Caribbean cruise and I sailed once trans-Atlantic with my 10 year-old granddaughter. The ship is a modern throwback to days when trans-Atlantic sea voyages ... Read more

After sailing back to back across the Atlantic on Queen Mary 2 in 2014, I simply had to book a voyage on the remastered Queen Mary 2. The remastering of Cunard’s flagship had got me really excited. Once she entered dry dock I found ... Read more

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 quick and easy. Our room was ready and was overall impressed with the efficiency. Although this ship has recently undergone a remastering and will always be the Icon of the Seas - we still found it tired looking. I am ... Read more

This was our first cruise, ever, and chose QM2 for several reasons: a transatlantic, felt it was worthy of a 45th wedding anniversary, formal nights, and reputation as an elegant ship. We were pleased and elated at every aspect. Service ... Read more

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS cruising every January, was Cunard for me? Having heard about the advantages of transatlantic sailing travel compared to cruising for so many years, thought I’d give an ocean-liner a try. So, the brief 4th ... Read more
