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

My mother and I just completed a transatlantic crossing on Queen Mary 2. It was indeed the best of times and the worst of times. One of the crew members was lost at sea during the Eastbound crossing. We went back to look for him but to ... 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

Booked this cruise because friends were going and they asked if we would join them. Unfortunately, the idea was doomed from the start because they booked a room with access to the Princess dining room whilst (I learned to use the word ... Read more

Having saved and worked hard to do this transatlantic cruise both ways we were thoroughly disappointed with Cunard. The ship looks tired and as for 'formal' nights don't bother dressing up as the dress code was NOT adhered to, we often ... Read more

First my positive comments: The ship itself is great; spacious and comfortable. The ship's stabilisers were only used once during the 8 days and this was in Force 9 winds. The impact of the high seas was barely noticeable on board. ... Read more

Having spent a couple of past transatlantic voyages on the QM2, the first in 2005, this was a 21 day trip and a 5 day NY catch up for my 50th Birthday treat in the QM2's 11th year commencing 21st July. I was pleasantly surprised as this ... Read more

Okay, the QM2 is showing some age and the food isn't great, but still very good, but overall a nostalgic experience and I would do it again, (our 3rd time this time). There is nothing like it to leave New York aboard this ocean liner, (not ... Read more

We were on the same cruise as Stu and Karl and indeed were their table companions. Whilst I agree with much that they said I think that the food was better than they imply, we found that there was always a reasonable choice of dishes and ... Read more

I had great expectations of the Transatlantic crossing between Southampton and NYC, fueled by all the novels and historical accounts I read. I should have taken into account that he 19th and 20th centuries are long gone. After ... Read more
