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

The Queen Mary 2 voyage was amazing. The food was supreme. The crew/staff from the Captain, Head Chef, our cabin boy to the housekeepers, they were all wonderful, polite and very professional. The whole White Star service exceeded all ... Read more

Another great cruise on the QM2! My partner repeated the Westbound Transatlantic crossing we did last year. This year, we traveled with my father and best friend. The crossing is very popular. We actually ran into 3 groups of people we ... 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

I'm a retired U.S. Navy Sailor and have spent a couple decades at sea so I knew what to expect as far as the nature and feel of a ship at sea but all I can say after being on the QM2 is Wow!! My wife and I had just spent 9 days in ... Read more

We booked this trip early, 9 months before, a trip to Southampton, three weeks in Europe and then return passage to NYC. It turned out that the Queen Mary 2 did not sell out for the Aug. 19th sailing, and we and our friend traveling ... Read more

Intro (warning: long): Before I begin discussing the actual ship itself, I just wanted to debrief my rather bumpy journey of travelling to New York from Wales to meet my family. I was to travel alone (which I have never done before) to ... Read more

I have travelled Cunard several times before, and was overall very pleased with the QM2, but was a little disappointed in that the elegance of formal wear did not apply to High Tea any longer - as that was one of my fondest memories. With ... Read more

... Unless it's your wedding pictures. We chose the QM2 as a venue to get married and learned some valuable lessons. The land-side service from Cunard was deplorable. The ship is wonderful and the crew on board excellent. The wedding ... Read more

This ship is marvelous. The public areas are gorgeous. The food was magnificent and we even had lobster tail one night, not so common any more. They had 4 formal nights, but if you didn't want to participate you could eat in the buffet. ... Read more

Other than the horrible experience at the "hotel" in Brooklyn (hint - it was NOT "comfort"able), our trip was absolutely perfect. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather the whole trip. Well, except for the first ... Read more

We had previously cruised on Princess Cruise Line, and loved every minute! Surprisingly, Cunard, showed itself to be a step down. Certainly, not something we anticipated. Cabin: Our balcony stateroom was very comfortable, clean, ... Read more

Last year I sailed 22 days on The Queen to UK, Hamburg, and Norway. I was excellent. Last week I was only able to take a short cruise and I found it to be lacking in it's treatment of the guests. Saki the head waiter in the Britannia room ... Read more
