We have never been on any of the Queens and felt that the time had come to have this unique experience.. a time warp.. a visit to an era long past. We are experienced cruisers, being frequent passengers on the Celebrity, Regent and ... Read more

Embarkation at Southampton was acceptable - much as other cruise companies. Our cabin, a sheltered balcony was, again, quite acceptable - and albeit winter, I in particular appreciated the balcony. But we were fortunate in having ... Read more

After a crazy 9 days in the USA, which we arrived at on the Carnival Vista, (my Review is “Loving The Vista Loca”) we were looking forward to joining Queen Mary 2 for a slightly more subdued crossing back to the UK. Firstly, ... Read more

This was a first for us- I would consider us well travelled but always by air. The glamorous image of this crossing was appealing. It was for a special occasion so we booked a Queens Grill suite, expecting a luxurious experience. The ... Read more

Review QM2 Nov 2016 I was so excited at the thought of sailing on the QM2, the ‘crème de la crème’ of ships, however I was disappointed. I am fairly new to cruising having only cruised twice on Celebrity in ... Read more

This Trans Atlantic crossing started off very badly for us. Air Canada unfortunately did not see fit to send our bags with us from Toronto, and so we arrived at the ship with the clothes on our back, and no toiletries. Just our meds and a ... Read more

This was a second cruise for me on the QM2, and it began with a delay boarding in Southampton, surprising after literally walking right on the ship after my arrival earlier in October in NYC to travel to the UK. It proved to be a ... Read more

We booked parking recommended by Cunard. We arrived at the ship and within two minutes our baggage and car had been taken, what a great start. Our balcony cabin was incredible and everything was spot on . We received a half bottle of ... Read more

This was an experience to cherish and a super way to conclude our month-long vacation in America. The facilities afforded onboard the ship did not disappoint in any way. All the ship’s personnel demonstrated a singular goal ... Read more

First time on Cunard and it did not disappoint. Everything exceeded expectations. I especially loved the "rock"n"roll" of the ship during some rough sea days. Not everyone would agree. This was a jazz cruise and ... Read more

The highlight of our October crossing was the selection of terrific jazz performances by Blue Note artists Gregory Porter, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and their bands. Headline concerts in the Royal Theater, more informal concerts in the ... Read more

It was on my husband's "bucket list" to cross the sea on a real ocean liner, and this is the only one sailing today. We also love to ballroom dance and were intrigued to try "the largest ballroom at sea". We travelled ... Read more

Taking the Queen Mary 2 transatlantic had long been on my wish list, but I resisted as long as Cunard charged an outrageously high surcharge. I signed on the minute I heard about the new single cabins. My cabin on Deck 2 was roomy ... Read more

My wife and I chose the Queen Mary 2 because it was making this itinerary at the time we wanted. We hadn't visited the delightful Quebec City before and we thought the 'Fall Colors' would be nice to see again. Both 'platinum level' Cunard ... Read more

This was a Fall Foliage Cruise (New England and Atlantic Provinces). We booked a cheap outside cabin. We had been on the QM2 on a transatlantic cruise years ago, before the recent remastering. We are reasonably agile and competent ... Read more

First cruise as a honeymoon cruise from New York to Quebec to enjoy the Indian summer. Concisely put: the experience was worth every dollar spent. We had the most attentive and dedicated service from our stewards Krisna and Richard, ... Read more

Chose this crossing as I don't fly and thought it was about time I visited the US and Canada. Embarkation was quick and efficient although why I had to give my hotel address in NYC when I had ESTA was puzzling to say the least. When I ... Read more

Cunard makes everything easy, from embarkation to disembarkation. While not yet complete, the 2016 refit of the QM2 is nicely planned. They improved the layout of the vessel, while leaving the favorite locations unchanged. The food is very ... Read more
