Our first visit to OZ. We joined the QM2 Sydney to Hong Kong. It turned out to be the perfect Cruise. The sea was calm and the weather good. There were a fair few sea days but we really enjoyed them, mainly relaxing out in the fresh ... Read more

Chose this cruise, Sydney to Hong Kong on QM2 to get a sample of Cunard Line, not so much the ports. Always been on my bucket list to try QM2. Embarkation in Sydney was very good, efficient, only had to wait half an hour to embark. ... Read more

Britannia restaurant had excellent food and service for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our cabin steward was the most helpful and hard working man, friendly but unobtrusive and he always had the cabin looking immaculate. All the ... Read more

I enjoy the short coastal cruises offered by Cunard. They allow me to escape from my otherwise busy schedule. The uncrowded feel of an ocean liner rather than the glitz of a cruise ship is the most appealing aspect of the Cunard offering. ... Read more

We have cruised 5 times on other lines but this was a "Bucket List" cruise for us. We felt we were very lucky to get any disability cabin, let alone in Princess Grill. Embarkation in Sydney was fairly smooth, and we were on board ... Read more

Cunard was the only shipping line I considered. Reason being, that the choice was about the class and quality of the ship and its services, what a misguided perception. Sadly Cunard no longer represent either their own publicity nor their ... Read more

Always wanted to cruise on Queen Mary 2 and experience the legend, Cunard and the past splendour of a transatlantic ocean liner. It was also my first cruise. Sailing from Sydney to Tasmania - return seemed a good way to enjoy this ... Read more

The opportunity to travel on QM2 was too good to pass up and the 5 night itinerary afforded me the opportunity to travel in a Queens Grill suite. The itinerary was a round trip from Sydney, visiting Port Arthur and Hobart. Embarkation ... Read more

We boarded the QM2 on January 10th sailing from Southampton to Cape Town. Embarkation was very good. Stateroom 5319 with enclosed balcony. Not as clean as expected, one light fitting tied on with plastic ties as it was obviously broken. ... Read more

For 799 USD on a balcony incl. 850 USD OBC you better go than staying home. Embarkation was "disappointing" since the weather was foggy and rainy. So not a real welcome feeling with a great farewell out of New York like we had ... Read more

I chose Princess Grill accommodations for a December/Christmas crossing on the QM2 (room 10.036). The upgrade from standard Balcony Suites is well worth the cost, if it is within your budget. The room is wonderful and the Princess Grill ... Read more
