This was my wife and I's 3rd Cunard cruise, and 2nd time on the QM2 (first time eastbound transatlantic crossing in May 2015). We are probably the youngest independent (of our own accord AKA no family history) "Cunarders" ever ... Read more

The Queen Mary 2 is a lovely ship, beautifully run. Ours was a December passage; the Atlantic was rough, to put it mildly. The outer decks were rarely open. Having said that, the QM2 is so well built, that the high seas and strong ... Read more

This is my second time on a Cunard ship, the first one being around 25 years ago onboard Cunard Princess. A bit of background to us first. We are two males (48 & 40) we have both cruised previously this cruise/crossing making it 6 ... Read more

Embarking RMS QM2 in Southampton on December 3 for the 12-night cruise to the Canaries, this trip sets a record in my cruising life of 20-plus years in that I spent 32 nights in a single ship during 2015. The last trip was in January ... Read more

We booked a Princess Grill stateroom aboard the QM2 for a transatlantic voyage to celebrate a significant wedding anniversary. This was our third time on the QM2 and we have also travelled on the QE2 and Queen Victoria. A short time before ... Read more

This was not our first time on board the QM2 and we've sailed also on Queen Elizabeth as well. We are Gold Members and love all things Cunard until this sailing. We first sailed on her in 2012 and were blown away by her grace impeccable ... Read more

A bit painful to pen this, since QM2 deserves much better care than she is getting from her owners. First, the positive: we still found many things to love as we did on our very first cruise in May last year. Many public spaces still ... Read more

I read with interest the review by CatsRKool. There views mirror mine exactly. In fact as a platinum Cunarder if this had been my first cruise it would also have been my last on Cunard. The food in the Queens Grill was superb and the ... Read more

The QM2 is wonderful. Ship, staff, service levels, food, entertainment, everything was well thought out and we felt very well looked after even though we were not booked in the higher priced accommodations. We had two balcony cabins on ... Read more

What a great way to cruise for the very first time on this beautiful great ocean liner. This ship is huge and very Grand. It's built for this crossing of the the North Atlantic. I would of normally chosen a warmer destination with smooth ... Read more

One complaint: Natalie Cole cancelled for this Blue Note Jazz Cruise and we were among the passengers who were not informed ahead of time. Confusion: a last minute change from 4 formal nights to one formal night. OVERALL, this crossing ... Read more

I'd like to start by saying that I have spent over seven years of my life in hotels as part of my profession. Hotels don't do it for me unless they are truly outstanding! My wife and I are also in our mid-fifties and we're (especially ... Read more

This was my last voyage before the dry dock coming after the WC, so I hope to write a comparison next year - as we have booked the same class and the exact same trip - Quebec to NYC. I hope this review helps give a few tidbits and ... Read more

The directions that cunard gives for embarkation are not correct. They tell me to go through immigration when I arrive in New York. The airport I flew into did not have immigration. My assigned seating on the round trip was not given to ... Read more

The Queen Mary 2, as we expected is a beautiful, spacious ship. The amenities offered are wonderful. We took this trip because Crosby Stills and Nash, a 1960s rock group were slated to do 3 concerts onboard. But the lectures offered ... Read more

Wife and I did our first "Crossing" in August and hope to do many more. As veteran cruisers we've determined that our favorite part of past cruises were days at sea. So, why not do 100% Days at Sea? Flew into Heathrow from ... Read more
