This was our first ever cruise. We chose the 4 nights trip from Southampton to Zeebrugge and then the trip to St Peter Port (Guernsey) returning to Southampton. We upgraded to deck 11 and had a lovely balcony in a luxurious state room. Our ... Read more

I suggest that the QM2 is too retro, with its restaurants, cigars, bars & deck chairs straight out of the 1950s. There isn't much to do on the typical 5-day crossing, except sit at the pools or walk the deck (3 times around is a mile). ... Read more

This 'crossing' was part of a trip which included a coach journey on the east coast of USA and Canada. Though we have been with many cruise lines, we had never done Cunard so we were looking forward to sampling the white star service. ... Read more

We choose QM2 over flying to Europe when the price becomes competitive. It did this Aug and we cancelled free tickets to take advantage. Although Cunard makes much ballyhoo over the remastering, it was confined principally to the Grill ... Read more

I chose this crossing of the Atlantic from NYC to Southampton because it met my goal of enjoying a crossing without jet lag. Also, my wife and I were going to be in the UK for about a month so starting in Southampton was a good start. ... Read more

Having read some of the other reviews for my cruise I feel it must just be me and as such I am going to just keep this factual. Where to start, well we arrived at Southampton with happy heart looking forward to the trip. We cruise often ... Read more

QM2 is like a new ship after her remastering. Everything seemed new - carpets, furniture, appointments. We have done a transatlantic before, but the Cunard "crossing" is indeed a different experience. I could tell the QM2 is a ... Read more

We were already vacationing in the U.K. when we had the sudden idea of returning to NYC by boat. Fortunately, the Aug. 1 sailing had one cabin available--a Britannica Club on deck 12--and we grabbed it. It was our first transatlantic ... Read more

My wife and I booked a golf vacation to Scotland and we decided to begin our journey by taking the QM2 from NY to Southampton. The ship also made a stop in Halifax, NS. For those who may think that being on an ocean liner for 7 or 8 ... Read more

Westbound crossing in 2014 was great and we wanted to experience the remastering and a Princess Grill Suite this year, 2016, round-trip for 16 days. We flew into LGA the night before our voyage, stayed at a hotel, and took an Uber from ... Read more

WE had 5 days in New York b4 embarking on the cruise. Checking in & embarking at the NY terminal was not great & the staff pretty offhand. Not what I expect of Cunard. It sells itself high so it needs to "deliver" to ... Read more

After sailing back to back across the Atlantic on Queen Mary 2 in 2014, I simply had to book a voyage on the remastered Queen Mary 2. The remastering of Cunard’s flagship had got me really excited. Once she entered dry dock I found ... Read more

If you are booking a Saver Fare you may be kept awake by Band ( just the base player in this case ), you are not warned of this before booking. You should expect to contact the Pursar's desk 4 times before something is done. Many ... Read more
